    I know Springs and Bodden must be better than O'Neal, Bryant & Starks but even if they aren't HOF players I would feel better with at least one of them on board.

    I feel like an outsider when ever I hear this term?

    What's a JAG? What does it stand for? jag-off? Are some of you from Chicago?

    Sometimes we forget that making fans feel better is not necessarily a high priority for the team.

    I have no doubt that we will sign our normal 3-4 free agent defensive backs. I would expect one within a week. My guess is that Lew Sanders will be re-signed within that time frame. We can certainly hope for another. We've already signed James Sanders.

    100% hindsight is great but I would note that O'Neal, Bryant and Starks were all brought in to be starters or to be nickel at least. While we may have the same expectation of a defensive back we might sign, Belichick may be hoping that Hobbs, Wheatley and Wilhite are the starters and nickel for 2009.

    Just as soon as the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 million dollar per year

    cornerbacks are signed by other teams.

    Based on many sources, including Chad Johnson, Bodden is no JAG. He is 27 and with a better team then the lions, he can be a PREMIER cornerback.

    I agree. In our system, I can see Bodden being a big time baller.

    He went undrafted from

    Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit

    Count Andre Goodman among that list. Josh and co. signed him to a 5 year $25 million contract.

    I think Bodden will be a Patriot. The visit (per his agent) went well and now it seems like it's just about the $$$.

    Bodden has experience in our system and terminology from RAC. He is talented and 6'1" a taller CB we need.
    If Sanders is worth $4m and Gooden was just signed for $5m we need to spend a little more or about that to sign this kid.

    It's always about the money. The most money the Patriots paid

    to a veteran cornerback last year was 1 million dollars to Deltha O'Neal

    for one year. Bodden is probably asking for 5-7 million dollars per year.

    Yes, I read that he is close to signing with Detroit or back with the Steelers.

    Bryant McFadden

    He is interesting to watch, I bet he gets 5 years, $30M+. $10 M Guaranteed

    I see him as a league average starter, maybe slightly better than average (same general class as Hobbs). CBs are expensive, every year 1 or 2 should be drafted because they are too expensive to sign through free agency.

    I am also guessing that when they do sign a veteran CB it is their last major move before the draft.

    If the money is not too crazy, I hope we pick up Bodden. Every year for the past few it seems like our secondary is the weakest part of our team.

    I WANT MY JAGS!

    Ok, really it is a good time to wait, players are going to get hungier and hungier and the difference between one player and the next is starting to be reduced.

    A JAG can be picked up after the draft that will be within the same general production level as a JAG that is available now.
