    I have an idea it is probably Denver but I'm not sure of the answer. Off the top of my head;

    Denver has (5)..Lamont Jordan, Brandon Gorin, Lonie Paxton,Daniel Graham and Clint Oldenberg.
    KC (3) Vrabel, Cassel and Monty Beisel
    NYJ (3) Izzo, Law and Damien Woody
    Clev (3) David Patten, Hank Poteat and Donte Stallworth*

    Isn't Chad Jackson a Donk or is he in limbo?

    Pretty sure he's still with the Broncos, which would give them 7 former Pats.

    That'll work for them... with the immortal Orton, they could sneak up on teams and finish 12-4... I see Gorin really really shoring up that line and bringing it back to the Bronco lines of the late 90's !

    Anyone else think it's weird that the Pats' 09 opponents seem to be shooting themselves in the foot (Lynch, Cutler...) ?

    I know you're being sarcastic. Look at their schedule. They have the privilege of the second place schedule, NE, Indy as well as the NFC East (Dallas,NYG,Phil,Wash) and the AFC North (Pitt,Clev,Cinn and Balt) and their intra-divisional games home/away against SD,KC and Oak. That's 8 games against playoff teams plus the Pats....

    Ah ! You got me ! To be truthful, I think they are in real trouble. And, again - to be honest, I think the schedule will have more to do with their struggles than their lost QB... I think the NFL is about the QB : but not the Brett Favre gunslinger-type QB. Orton may actually exceed Cutler in wins (not this season, but maybe next) because he actually HAS a winning record in the NFL, by all accounts is a smart decision maker, and he will have weapons in Denver.

    Great list. I've got to admit that there are 7 names there that mean nothing to me -- Jon Condo??? And some I can't believe are still in the league -- P.K. Sam, Christian Morton!!

    But here's a name I think you've missed. Robbie Gould (Chicago) was a Patriot once, wasn't he?

    Great post, thanks.

    Not a player but Pioli counts as a HUGE number 7, he is one of the best in the business and he will have KC playing to win this year. McDaniels, on the other hand, will struggle in Denver.

    He was on the roster in training camp but was cut before the 2005 season began.

    Yup. So he's as much of a Patriot as Fernando Bryant. :)

    The guys who in a perfect world I wish the Pats still had.

    I chose Huard over Cassell because no world is that perfect.

    I'm pretty much with you (I'm glad that you didn't want to change our kicker!) But, what? No love for HANK POTEAT???

    Great job!

    And no surprise which teams are clustered at the top of the list.

    I'd also be curious as to which teams' ex-players the Pats have most of. Early in the BB regime it was surely the Jets, but that's mainly for reasons that are ancient history now. (I say "mainly" because BB has stated a lingering bias towards guys in his division just because he has a lot of film on them specifically playing against teams he's familiar with, which he believes helps him in evaluating them.)

    I suspect that you're a little off in those stats, because that link for some reason makes it look as if the Patriots' 2008 draftees were UDFAs.

    Even so, the true UDFA number is non-trivial.

    Add Chattam to the Jets' list. Unless he's gone, then never mind.

    Garett Mills was on the Patriots as well..though he was IRed for his 1st year.

    Ty Law is still with the Jets according to NFL.com..

    Jeremy Mincey is still with the Jaguars according to NFL.com

    Patrick Cobbs was on the Patriots and they traded him to the Steelers who then released him and he was signed by Miami.

    Pat Ross spent time on the Pats Practice Squad and is with AZ now.
