There were/ are no great FA this year. Possibly Edgerin James but everyone knew he was going to the highest bidder and the Pats aren't in bad need of RB. Drew Brees was out their but obviously we weren't interested. Randel El is a good WR, not top level FA. I think other teams are thinking short term and overpaying for best available players instead of thinking long term by plugging holes until the type of player you are looking for is available. I'm as frustrated as most about the lack of activity but I know that's just the fan in me that wants something to cheer for. When I sit back and consider everything I agree with all the moves. Losing Givens will hurt but we shouldn't have matched that money. He may be worth it to the Titans but not to the Pats. Willie will be replaced by Vrabel... not bad at all. Losing AV will suck, but really how much should you pay a kicker?
