Considering the slim pickings out there in Free agency and the draft this coming offseason at 3-4 OLB, I believe signing Banta-Cain will be the Pats best option at WOLB for 2007. Signing him before free agency seems wise. He is a solid pass rusher, has excellent knee bend and gains good leverage turning the corner. His pass coverage skills should improve with time, confidence and experience. He is adequate setting the edge. He seems reasonably durable. Banta-Cain can fill the bill.
