    Hate to see them meet his original salary demands, but Picking up Greer would likely be the best available CB. Greer and Bodden would ensure one decent vet, but would it be worth the dough?

    Yeah, it's parrot's work for sure. Wheatley was the unfortunate recipiet of whatever curse was eating our D in gulps last year and Wilhite was coming on.

    Yup. Deep draft for corners. The D. backfield will be much improved this year.

    Of course, it couldn't get that much worse. :(

    The corners got much better over the last 6 weeks of the season. I think both Wheatley and Wilhite looked decent once they had a few games under their belts. I wouldn't want to see them starting, but I'm not uncomfortable with them in nickel and dime situations.

    Bringing in a veteran to team with Hobbs, Wilhite, Wheatley, and a rookie makes all sorts of sense.

    Looking seriously at Greer, Bodden, and Springs is good news.
    Hopefully they will consider Bartell and McFadden, and find the best fit to the system and cap.

    Bringing in guys for a look is an exercise in futility unless the Patriots

    raise the bar salary wise.

    How do you know what the bar is, salary wise? And please don't say that it can't be high enough because Bodden didn't get signed. The Pats didn't have the salary cap space on Friday to add Bodden after having signed Taylor and Baker.

    My skepticism is based on the fact that the Patriots haven't signed

    a good free agent cornerback since Tyrone Poole. I will be pleasantly

    surprised if they sign Bodden, Greer, or Springs.

    This trend increases the value of DB draft picks like Wheatley and Wilhite. Also, the writing is on te wall for Hobbs to leave next winter.

    Hopefully a vet like Springs will not want a fortune.

    What "good" free agent corners have they had for a visit since they signed Ty Poole?

    BTW, I don't consider Springs to be a good CB. But Bryant McFadden is also available.

    1.) Did Tyrone Poole just get referenced as a "good cornerback"? ;)

    2.) If the price of #2 and #3 CBs is going to be 7 mil per in FA then teams will start making CBs in the draft a higher priority.. I am not sure what Wheatley gets but say it is 1.5 per - is someone like Foxworth really worth 5.5 million more than him? No way... roll the dice three times if you want and you are still a couple mil shy of that 7 mil per figure..

    The only decent guy I can remember is Deshea Townsend. I think

    the Patriots thought they had an agreement with him but he re-signed

    with Pittsburgh the next day.

    Tyrone Poole was a good cornerback when the Patriots signed

    him in 2003. He had a good season in 2003 and then had some injuries

    and seemed to lose his desire to play.

    No thanks on Greer. The guy was essentially a Nickel corner in Buffalo last season. And, from what I saw of him, I was not terribly impressed. I'd much rather us go after McFadden or Bodden.

    Wheatly...now that's a real "no thanks".
    Plus "Ellis" Wheatley was a dreaded "second rounder", not mid draft.

    What have you seen of Wheatley last year that the rest of us didn't? Fact of the matter is that all we know about him is that he has promise. He wasn't on the field enough in his rookie year for any of us to know anything about him... good or bad.
