    For the record, that line is not in the Boston Globe article. Opinion of Mr. rotoworld, whoever he is.:D

    Not unless he can play linebacker. The legitimate concern about how the Patriots will turn over the aging linebacker corps led to that IMO.

    Hopefully, Hobson is part of the answer.

    If his foot, and character, check out, he could be a very young and potentially good addition to the d-line. Perhaps we will see more of a 4-3 than usual ?

    This team is loading up. Scott would provide tremendous depth up front. Seymour, Warren, Wright, Green, Scott and Thomas would be a nice group at DE, with each having the ability to play inside in certain schemes.

    D. Scott has been a very solid player in the NFL and this would be a good signing at minimum risk, (provided the foot is fine).

    It's still April, the draft is a week away. The FO will address the LB situation. But, remember, BB likes to have his sytem rely on smart, veteran LB's. Players like Hobson and a rookie pick allow the Pats to rely less on Seau and Bruschi on every down.

    The "experts" fail to realize that while we lost Samuel and Gay (way over priced) to big deals, we have added Webster, Bryant and Hobson to low cost deals. These are quality veterans coming ina t low money deals. Plus, Samuel was a big loss, but Gay?????

    Look for a Gholston, Rivers or Groves in rd. 1 of the draft with a MLB targetted on day 2. This team will have a quality unit on D by the time camp starts.

    This guy Scott looks like he'd fit more into the DE rotation. 290 is a little big for a 'backer.

    Scott would be a 3-4 DE, not a LB...

    Scott would be very good depth at DE. With Wright and Scott as back-ups, things would look good.

    Could this mean the team is after a DT in the draft to back up Vince????

    Combined response to a couple posts, stocking LB is controversial do they refuse to draft high? Can they get enough young vets to offset attrition? etc.

    No controversy with the DL. Pats will draft, or acquire as much talent as they can. They love the agile big men.

    Has nothing to do with the merits of either player.

    Good point, "Cassius" Rayclay, we cannot forget LeKevin. He is a nice piece up front. I think they will still seek a Vince type body to back up at NT as well.

    Laws? Bryant? Sims?

    They'll certainly look for a wide body backup if they can find one. None of the backups really fill the bill.

    I'd love to see them really start rotating fresh bodies o that line. Could lead to devastating pressure on opposing olines.

    Pats will probably sit on this till after the draft, see who washes down the board to them.
