    That was the cry after day one. So far, the Pats have signed:

    OG - Robert Gallery
    WR - Brandon Lloyd
    WR - Anthony Gonzalez
    WR - Donte Stallworth
    WR - Wes Welker (franchised)
    TE - Daniel Fells
    DL - Jonathan Fanene
    DL - Kyle Love
    LB - Trevor Scott
    S - Steve Gregory

    Am I missing anyone?

    Fire Belichick, he can't win Super Bowls anymore. Get Dan Snyder to sell his team and come on as GM, he knows how to make a big splash in free agency.

    It's like he's signing anything that moves. Funny thing is he's been down in Florida fishing with Jimmy Johnson all week and JJ tweeted not catching much...

    And they did it all for about the same per year as Mario Williams, LOL, and that's with Welker's tag number.

    It's the smart play. You almost won the Super Bowl and you're stocked heading into the draft. Accumulate depth pieces across the board and a take a bunch of fliers on talented guys who, for whatever reason (mostly injury), haven't put it together yet.

    Give it another 10 minutes and we'll have another signing.

    Yeah but now I am worried we are trading all 4 of our rounds 1 and 2 picks into the future.

    i love what we've done, would it be greedy to ask for another defensive back and outside linebacker before we are done.....?

    Would have loved if they got Richard Marshall, but he got 3 years 16 mil from Miami.

    Apparently it takes us about a week to get REALLY warmed up.

    What about signing our own players:

    Core Special Team Players:
    Koutivedes
    Slater (Pro Bowl)
    White
    Starting OC: Connelly

    I'd say this is an impressive haul!

    I bet they are not done yet!

    Andre Carter
    BJGE

    Perhaps a former Jets starting safety?

    You know what else? It removes some of the SB loser "curse" that possibly affects you because you have a bunch of guys who just played 20 games.

    lloyd is the only apparent upgrade over last year's team

    so it depends on how you look at it

    My son's Friday night soccer clinic at the field house was cancelled last minute.

    So I figured they had a last minute workout

    ... little did I know it was more ... so much more.

    that cancellation meant nothing ... :D:D:D

    By most accounts I've read, Gregory will upgrade the safety position.

    An argument could be made that they're also stronger at #3 TE, but I do agree mostly.

    You could look at it a few ways: With no picks after the fourth round (yet) this year, BB is using free agency to stock up on depth, perhaps more so than usual.

    You could also just say this is the usual BB rummaging through the scrap heap and pulling out some intriguing finds. Several of these signings could go on to make significant contributions; it's also possible that at least half of them don't make the team.

    Finally, back to the draft: You could get excited and say "this is the year they move up for an impact player because they got their depth in free agency," but I'll only believe that when I see it.

    which ones are those? some out there think he's no upgrade at all...per walterfootball:

    Steven Gregory (C-)

    "The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Steve Gregory will start at free safety for New England. That's the reason for this bad grade. Gregory was torched quite often in coverage last year, so I have no idea what Bill Belichick sees in him. The only reason this isn't a D, an F or a Millen is because the Patriots didn't pay too much for the former Charger."

    yeah...I have to agree that TE depth is pretty important
