from the Browns and Colts.
Curious no visible interest from Pats. Could have sworn they would take a look at him in FA. Maybe they're working behind the scenes, who knows. But IMO they still need to add at least 1-2 vet LBs, maybe more if the draft strategy of No Rookie LBs continues to hold true.
Not sure why...maybe more interest in Seward..SPikes..other 2nd tier players..Maybe they think Haggans has fallen an dwants a bit too much...who knows..They do need an OS rusher...Seau back...maybe PUP??
I think it is perfectly clear why the Pats haven't made a big play for him. He is attracting enough interest from other teams to drive the price up.
Even if the Pats are hot on him, odds are we won't find out until just before they sign him or at least have him in for a visit. Every year, we never find out about some of these things until they are close to done.
I would love to see him with the horseshoes on his helmet but the Colts probably won't be able to afford him. Imo, the money would be better spent on a true DT instead of converted DE's. On second thought, Haggans does weigh 243. The Colts could rotate him from MLB to DT.
Actually interest in him may not be that high. Per PFT, there is some speculation that his agent is trying to create this 'phony' interest in him because at this point there isn't any.
Still - I seem to recall another LB that came out of Pittsburgh that did pretty well here.
Maybe the price will be right and we can get a no risk contract situation if indeed other teams question him fitting into their system.
PFT says nevermind, there actually is not too much interest.
