    Now that Pats locked up Amendola, any guesses or reports on who or what position they target next? Do they focus on the defense now? Next couple days should be exciting...

    In no particular order:
    1. A run at Michael Bennett as a starting LE, with Freeney, Abraham, or Umenyiora as more part-time players if that fails
    2. Wide receivers that ideally would be depth, but could start in a pinch. The two names I'd like are Edelman and DHB, plus a first round rookie that hopefully beats out both.
    3. One of the top CBs on the market, and maybe Talib plus another mid-level CB
    4. If only one CB above, then a nickel back. Arrington would be great, and Brice McCain is another guy I've seen mentioned.

    My guess is they wait for a domino or 2 to fall at cb let the market get set and see who's left and for what $.

    Sean Smith or Talib + Derek Cox or someone equivalent. Would go a longgg way to making the defense better. Also all is quiet on the Michael Bennett front can someone say Patriots? It was silent on Amendola too before today :D

    Load up on a WR, DT, DE, SS (who has some coverage ability) 2-3 cover guys.

    That'll do.

    I'm guessing Pats have just under 20 million in cap left. I'd be happy and think they could make the following happen. DHB and Edelman shouldn't cost much. Then grab Bennett the DE, hopefully then Talib and another DB.

    Same here. But the pats reports are silent and that means they have someone lined up. Know one hardly saw amendola signing so maybe the pats have been in discussion and letting zero word out.

    An angry Pollard for when we play the Ravens. Two bone jarring tackles in
    the AFC Championship game.

    Would like to see Talib stay and Ed Reed come over. Then I might forget about Welker....maybe.

    Is a collection of value players who can perform roles filling multiple positions better than one impact player filling one role?

    Um.. I just made a thread about how I don't want value players. Bennett is a great young pass rusher and Talib is the one of the best if not the best corner in this years free agent class. :confused::confused::confused:

    A guy who I think is way under the radar and would a huge low risk/massive upside signing would be David Nelson. I really like this kid and would come real cheap.

    He's tall, I believe 6-5 or so and can use his height to catch deep passes over defenders. At the very least be a great chain-mover and terrific red-zone option for corner fades freeing up Hernandez at the back of the end-zone and forcing defenders to think twice about just doubling Gronk down there.

    You couple that with 1 to 2 Day One-Day Two picks on WR in the Draft (Allen, Patterson, Woods, Austin, Rogers, Hunter, Hopkins.....can't avoid it this year) and we have a younger faster and stronger receiving core. I hope we can trade Mallett to pick up some ammo for the draft so they can target players and allow BB to maneuver accordingly.

    maybe we could kick the tires on Shaun Philips possibly?............and yes he can "rush the passer", lol

    I'm also very much in the green-light for Michael Bennett who I think is the best value DE out there from the very start

    Well right now Talib and Pollard are at the top of my wish list. Adding Smith so Dennard could move to the slot would be great.

    I would prefer Pollard, he is younger than Ed Reed and is a SS not a FS like Reed. Ed is the best FS I have ever seen, but at his age I would rather let McCourty grow into the position and get a good SS.
