    Somehow I don't think BB and co are done with FA yet?

    We won't know how much cap space we have until contract details are released, but I imagine we are pretty close to done a) we've our filled major holes (well, they weren't even holes as much as areas in need of upgrade) b) we need to have cap space left for draft picks and mid-season reinforcements.

    I think they are done with FA's this year. The Patskrieg of yesterday was well planned out and if they had someone else in mind, I think they would have addressed it yesterday.

    I don't think we see any more FA's and no more major news on players until the draft.

    The one exception to major player news is I think the signing and money thrown around yesterday opens up the idea to me that the Pats will work out a long term deal for Asante. I didn't think so prior to yesterday, but now I think it gets done before the draft.

    Don't be so concerned about cap space. Look what the Redskins do.

    We can always tweak some contracts to get cap room for our draft picks.

    I would love to see Donnie Edwards. with a LB core of Vrabel, Colvin, Thomas, Edwards, Bruschi

    Then focus on the draft on secondary. I have a gut feeling they are going OT with one of their first round choices.

    Once the Thomas, Welker, and Morris contracts are applied, we're probably looking at $8-12 million in cap space left.

    Seriously -- one or two more vet LBs, and then one has to wonder whether other needs (especially at DB) wouldn't best be met via the draft.

    In today`s Boston Globe BB said they are not done .

    And of that, you'd have to allocate bout 5 mill for draft picks and emergency mid-season signings, right?

    Gotta think they are targeting another vet LB. There were hot rumors in SD last preseason that Pats were trading for Donnie Edwards. I would be infinitely pleased if they signed him.

    If Troy retires, I see another vet WR coming in on the cheap. Nothing flashy though. Wouldn't mind seeing Joe Horn if he doesn't get any takers. Say what you will about the cell phone, dude has been a warrior and playmaker.

    I think they might go after DBs in the draft. BB has a much better track record with drafting DBs than any other position IMO. Only day 1 bust I can think of OTTOMH is Brock Williams, and really it was injuries that did him in.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I'd like to see them sign Edwards and Seau, and then we would have a nice rotation of LBs going in and out, and won't have to worry about anyone tiring out... I hear one of the Colts DBs is in FA, Nick Harper, I believe, he's solid and reliable, haven't heard anything about a team interested in him...

    Stallworth is injury prone... Flashes of brillance, then the next play hurts himself and is out for several games/season... Naw, no Stallworth... What about Horn?

    What about extending a younger player early?

    The only realistic candidate for that would be Wilson, and I think the Pats want to see something more out of him before giving him an extension.

    Why wouldn't Warren, quite early, be viable?

    I think we see Seau back... last year he wanted to play a full season for $1M, and I think he wants more... at that price, it is okay if they get injury-punctuated production from him, but he doesn't count as a full timer (but as part of a rotation.)

    Trade for Edwards. Definitely. I still say he will be in silver and blue in 2007.

    And it's "linebacking corps," not "linebacking core." Similarly there is no Marine Core.

    Teams usually stray away from extending players 2 years before their contracts expire.

    I still want Nap Harris/Takeo Spikes for an ILB rotation vet and Donnie Edwards to take Don Davis' spot coverage LB position.

    I'd like them to resign TBC too. He is great depth and a spot starter a la` Jarvis Green.

    Not necessarily....if he was referring to the "core" group of players, they he is correct. I believe we will carry more than 5 LB's. The 5 he mentioned would make up the "core" of our LB "corps"

    Sorry....couldn't resist.

    And I would also love to see Donnie Edwards....for the right price.

    Welker would be our primary punt retuner, he is much more than just a receiver.
