I know if Pats sign AT that gives them AT, Colvin, Tedy, Vrable, with maybe Seau returning as backup. Not much behind that. I think that given that all our LB are near or over 30, there is simply a very high statistical chance that one or more will miss significant time. Not to be a glass-is-half-emptier, but its just reality. So why not have 5 capable veteran starters? Hear me out: The market for Porter could be similar to the one for Harrison after SD cut him. Proven vet, somewhat controversial, coming off injured season, but perceived as "having lost a step." If this is the market and JP won't break the bank, he could be a realistic signing. As stated above, chances of injury to our LB is high at that age. Why not have 5 starters? And with AT being able to lineup at S, you could have 5 on the field in lots of situations. And I think it would benefit all the LBs to be in a nice steady rotation to keep them fresh. I know I know. I hated Porter too on PIT. Sure he runs his mouth. Sure he gets shot in the ass. Sure his dogs kill horses. But the end of the day, the dude makes plays.
