    Take: I find it interesting that the majority of the players with high percentages have only been here two years or less. Overall I have to say I'm impressed with the rookies contributions especially Myron Pryor hes been a great story this year...

    Pryor's been really good all things considered.

    I have him in my all rookie team.

    Given that he more than doubled his playing time, while his salary only went up 20% or so, I'm guessing he's going to see a slightly bigger check this year. :)

    I find it interesting that we were a top 10 defense, improving all year, and that most posters would not retain four of those who played in 50% or more of the reps. If any of these players leave, there will significant reps to make up.

    Burgess 57.3
    Green 57.2
    Thomas 54.1
    Springs 50.8

    IMHO, Springs is going nowhere. He is under contract and is valuable even if he is only is a backup role. This is true even if we re-sign Bodden, who is should be our #1 UFA target (Wilfork can be retained through a franchise tag).

    I would also re-sign Burgess. He should be available at a reasonable price and should provide a reasonable backup, if we acquire better players as we hope.

    We'll see what happens with Thomas and Green.

    What is Guyton's contract status? Is he a RFA?

    Better for NE: exclusive-rights free agent. If they offer him the salary for a third-year player, he has no right to negotiate with other teams.

    Are these percentages based on total defensive snaps for the team, or total defensive snaps only for games in which the player was active? For example, did Seau play in 11.9% of the snaps from 16 games, or just for those after he was signed?

    Is this the percentage of time they played while they were active (not injured)? Because if it is thats kind of disconcerting that Mayo was only on the field 73.7% of the time.

    Mayo's percentage is low due to his early season knee injury according to the notes posted in the link.

    The stats include all meaningful snaps (i.e., not including opponent kneeldowns, etc.) throughout the season.

    Wheatley looked good last year in the pre-season and then he got his shot and was looking solid and then he got hurt. This year barely a sniff. I wonder if everybody is showing that much more than him or if he's in the doghouse for some reason.

    Surprisingly high figure for Seau.

    That's what I was thinking. He came in part way through the season, and I don't recall seeing him in too many plays.

    those are very interesting stats and once again reiss is ahead of the rest in putting something like that together...it must be very tedious to do it...i know he tracks it week by week, but consolidating it...that's a lot of work...

    a top level look would suggest that the defense is getting younger...so, looking at the change from year to year...in terms of the "age" of the defense would be interesting, but I don't know if he has it for past years...
