    Should be a solid additional to the D-Line.

    I wonder if BB and Co. liked what they saw in the two games against Buffalo last season?

    He was a monster in Jacksonville, going to three straight Pro Bowls from 2003-2005. Still only 32 years old although it seems like he's been around a lot longer than that.

    I like it, should be a solid move. Tough to know how much he actually has left after playing in Buffalo the last 3 years.

    Wilfork Warren (Warren) Stroud Brace Deaderick Pryor Wright Love

    OL and OLB clearly are the biggest needs especially with this signing and Kaczur's imminent departure.

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    I don't know about that. He is 32 years old. Ty Warren is coming of a season ending injury. What they could have is the luxury of tremendous depth on the DL with a stud draft pick, Wilfork, Warren, etc. I wonder if this means G. Warren wont be back.

    Even more? I wouldn't read anything into it. Veteran depth and mentor, maybe, he'll be 33 in June and this is his 11th season in the league. Gerard Warren circa 2011.

    Has anyone heard the progress of Ty Warren and whether he will be fully recovered if and when TC starts?

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    One must wonder if Belichick saw the Jets and Dolphins looking into Stroud so he picked him up quick.

    Kind of unusual to see the Pats pick up a well known player so early while they normally sit and wait for some serious action to commence first

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    No signings allowed during lockout. Considering DL depth was a major issue as this team entered the playoffs, a classic BB move adding depth before the draft. The $$ of the contract will tell us the reality of how they view this signing

    I like the signing. Good Depth IMO.

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    How about this...it's now unlikely that they spend TWO of their top 3 picks on DEs. :)

    This is the best draft crop of 3-4 DEs in years. If you have a shot at a top one, you take it.

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    This in no way means we aren't picking up a 5-tech with one of our top 3 picks. Stroud couldn't handle the 3-4 scheme in Buffalo, why do you think he could do it here? What he brings to the table is depth at defensive end, and a very good DT for that 4-man front we trot out in nickel packages.

    Re: Schefter: Pats sign Marcus Stroud

    Agreed. He could easily be cut in camp ala Damion Lewis. Although Stroud seems to still be able to play.

    Who knows about G. Warren. The team may want him back, but seems doubtful.

    Ty should be ok for camp.

    It would not suprise me if they still drafted a 3-4 DE
