    Pats still in the mix for Jarvis Green - Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    Surprising. Even Reiss thinks so:

    Even as of 1:35 AM on Friday Reiss said Jarvis was likely on his way out:

    More from Elias:

    This is probably true. On the same token, this means that Green isn't the ideal fit as a starting 3-4 DE. So even if the Pats re-sign Green, they will still likely be looking for a first down 3-4 DE, a Haloti Ngata type. Maybe Jared Odrick?

    If they rely on Wright or Green to fit that bill, they risk another Baltimore debacle.

    If there's one guy I went into the offseason hoping they would part ways with, it was him. They need to get some new bodies on the D-line.

    I just sincerely hope this means that he's going to be a back up and that the team is thoroughly going to search for an actual replacement for Richard Seymour this offseason. God knows that Jarvis Green was not that guy in 2009.

    His agent can use from 04-07 all he wants. Fact is in 08 and 09, Jarvis has 2 sacks and 36 hits/pressures in over 600 pass rushes. That is not very good Plus he has always wore down vs the run. If he was above average run defender, the Pats would be making a bigger push to keep him.

    He had some nice years here, but the team needs more production from his spot. Time to move on.

    Good luck elsewhere, Mr. Green. You've been a nice guy, and you were a nice backup for several seasons.

    Jarvis Green is not worth TBC money. If we're talking just slightly over vet min, I'd entertain it, otherwise, I'd much rather that the Pats draft a new DE in 2010.

    For a million or two per season, I don't think we'd find better depth/utility at DE. I agree though, that if he's brought back at more than $3m or to be a starter, and it's an inadvisable move.

    After the disaster of the Seymour trade, I would expect the team to check every nook and cranny for a serviceable starting DE for this season, and to draft a DE very high in this draft. If that's the case, I would think that there will be no room for Green, particularly if the reports of the team wanting to bring back Smith are accurate.

    Green is like Tomlinson...They both were VERY good players and perhaps Green at one time was the best backup DE in the league but just like LaDanian the bottom dropped out...quickly.

    I expect Green to be called upon by the Saints who are his dream team to close out his career,and it would be nice for a nice guy to go out on a team he wants to be on.

    Yeah, I suppose the numbers game doesn't work in his favor:

    Starters:
    Warren
    Wilfork
    FA/Draftee (hopefully)

    Reserves:
    Wright
    Brace
    Pryor

    i heard that he wants to go to his hometown team of New Orleans. With the saints cutting Charles Grant, they could use some help on the d-line. Damn, that's Seymour, Thomas and Green cut or traded in the past year. It's funny how they were the three who were about to sack Eli Manning....
