    This is the first dividend from the Cassel trade.

    re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    Ok, going back over the list:

    RB: Check
    TE: Check
    S: Check, but only partially. More is needed
    WR: Still a need
    LB: Still a need
    CB: Still a need
    LS: Still a need
    FB: ?
    OL: I still want my LT


    And many thanks to Mr. Sanders for not jumping for the highest dollar.

    Hmmmm.... now do we put backup QB on the list, or just figure that'll hash itself out after the draft?

    Goody gum drops. I'm ready for new stuff. The Cassel trade feels like it happened 2 weeks ago. I'm ready to move on. Welcome back James Sanders!

    Good to see him back. I would much rather have someone else in the starting spot but Sanders isn't a bad start. :cool:

    re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    OK.

    This means that the Patriots don't need[/q] to draft a safety, and are unlikely to tap a free agent now.
    However, Sanders-Meriweather is average, at best.
    The Pats will likely look at safeties in the second and third round of the draft.

    In terms of free agents, Sanders was considered middle of the pack, but obviously is one of the youngest free agents available. Hopefully one of the cheaper solutions too.

    re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    good to hear him come back. he's solid. you don't have to worry about him the majority of the time being out of position. this allows us to concentrate on LB and pass rushers which will make the secondary that much better.

    re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    i dont mind having him as a backup at safety, but as a starter hes below league average. i hope we can find an impact safety in FA or in the draft

    Re: Reiss: Sanders Signs

    Are you suggesting that sanders took less money for a backup contract ? and thanks for once again reminding us how dumb the FO is.

    Re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    I would say TE is still a need and you have to add long snapper to the list.

    What is the buzz on Tank Williams recovery? He seems to be a forgotten entity at safety ....

    Re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    I don't agree with the need of a TE. We don't use them that much and with already 4 on the board we don't really need one.
    Long Snapper a definite need though :D
    Very good news this.

    Re: Reiss: James Sanders Signs

    Ahhh.... I had LS on there and deleted it by mistake. I'll try to fix it if it's not too late. But for tight end, they've got about 5 of them now. I know that's not enough for BB, but this year's class sucks.
