    Good start, good start. Certainly helps with a big weakness on the line.

    As said in other thread, he's better than Ellis, Warren, or Brace. Upgrade.

    Nice hair, hopefully it was a nice contract.

    6.5 sacks in a BACKUP role. Solid in run D. Pretty much Wright's replacement.

    Not Red Bryant, but a nice compromise and a big upgrade to what the Pats had last season.

    I forgot Wright was gone. This makes sense. They will probably sign at least two more DLine men, IMO.

    I'm ecstatic, this free agency period has truly been a grand experience.
    We've signed several special teams players and we've now enlisted a Samoan/Tongan into our ranks.
    I am effusive to say the least.

    Ian said the signing bonus is $3.85 million, so I can't expect this to be a huge deal.

    Christ, this fanbase has a lot of morons.

    Decent signing at a position where there was a need.

    If you want big name signings and no Championships, head elsewhere.

    Kinda bummed but only because I was certain we'd sign zero FAs from other teams in the 1st 24 hours. Otherwise let me welcome the hairy version of Wright to the team. Good going BB.

    You can certainly take it that it's not bad news.
    I wonder what they'll be doing with Ellis && Warren.

    It should lessen the need for Wilfork to move all over the line as a run stopper.

    Ellis will not be back

    Warren may come back during camp just like last year.

    solid move, hopefully get a safety also. if we can make some solid pickups and a solid draft they're right back there.

    Good signing.

    Fanene adds depth and is a capable utility player for any front; can anchor on run downs and press the wall on distance.

    Solid but not spectacular, which is usually the way the FO chooses to do it when addressing depth.

    SI_PeterKing: Look at 2010 tape of Jonathan Fanene, and you'll see a terrific disruptive rusher. Good signing by Pats. [via Twitter]

    SI_PeterKing: Meant 2009 on Fanene. Zimmer thought he was one of best in lg then

    6 sacks last year, 6.5 in 09, hurt in 2010 so no stats. Solid signing.

    Well

    Brace is gone..it hurts both he and Butler what a waste

    Most Likely will not draft DT in 1st round

    Ellis on Bubble if not gone

    Warren on speed dial.

    Easy there Rick Pitino. This isn't the Midwest where all the fans show up on opening day to learn what happended during the offseason. Some people will be critical and yes...some will be dumb. It is what it is.

    There's no chance in hell that Ellis comes back. Wright (retirement), Ellis, Cunningham and Brace could all be gone.
