    Just think of all of the new numbers we have to remember, and this does not even include the draft pix...

    First 4 draft picks this year ... traded.

    Seriously I am thinking we take 2 and trade 2 right now with little roster room available.

    I agree, stockpile for the future... but these signings may indicate that the future is now.

    Guess Myra wasn't happy either ... so this year we get it done and we start now.

    I think there's plenty of room for competition and improvement at every level of the defense. We could use another DL for the rotation and to help replace Anderson/Carter (if they're not signed), OLB (right now we only have 3 if you count Cunnigham and Scott), ILB (to replace Guyton's spot), CB (Dowling and Moore are still question marks and McCourty has more to prove), and S (I don't want to see Brown or Slater back there ever again).

    I think there's plenty of roster room to use all the picks if there are players they like available.

    Normally there is about a 20-25% turnover of personnel on a team....

    Pats have signed 8 new players off FA so far...figure another 3-4 draft picks stick. That's 11-12 new players on the final 53...Dowling was IR almost all year and Vereen was inactive for most of the season.....Can Markel Carter make the final 53 ? Does Tarpinian qualify for PS ? Does Pryor make the final cut?


    FA Upgrades/Additions so far 3WR-2DL-S-OL-TE.....

    Not sure BB is through yet...... :)

    Gonna be a fun TC......
