    This might be something to keep an eye on.

    VERY interesting...I would not think its a bad move for the right money...would really make the DL solid.. and he would only be used here and there..saving WIlfork a bit so he doesn't get pounded down..

    No Jersey Selected

    I still remember that TD he scored on us in 2003. Ugh.

    If he's healthy, it's a win-win. The Pats get depth behind Wilfork keping that big run stopper in the middle even if Vince is on the bench catching a breather and Adams gets a chance for a ring.....I wonder what number his dad wore when he was with the Pats in the 70's.........

    Adams would be a solid backup to wilfork or possible replacement especially with the passing of Hill. The only fear is that Adams will eat everything in foxboro

    Good one year move if you can get it done.

    Have a brewski, and make it a Sam Adams.

    Seriously, he would make money on ads. And yes, #2 NT is a serious need. As has been stated, the backup NT also comes in to give Wilfork a breather for a series or two (or for a game or two) and could be used in short yardage situations.

    Potentially a good depth signing - and it follows the mold of signing veteran guys who don't have a ring, but desperately want one. I don't know if I should be concerned about the lack of developmental time for a LeKevin or a Kareem, etc. You can only hide these guys on the PS for so long.

    I've wanted a legit backup NT for a while, and probably would have drafted Alan Branch at #28. This would be a good solution for a year.

    i like it but article mentions it could be bad news for Wright .. meaning possibly cut

    i still think Wright would stay on roster. He plays DE and NT and works hard and hes done well at times. could be bad news for Smith :\

    LeKevin Smith is the one who it could be bad news for. Kareem Brown will replace Hill on the roster. Wright will be the same as he's been, a backup DE and NT. LeKevin would have a good chance to be replaced by Adams.

    Really? I read the article twice, didn't see any indication at all of "bad news for Wright." In fact, the only mention of him I see is a positive:

    "The Patriots' top defensive linemen are Wilfork, Ty Warren, Richard Seymour, Jarvis Green, and Mike Wright."

    You're right. Sam Adams played in the same era as Julius Adams, but Sam is the father of the DT the Pats are looking at.
