Miguel has posted his next analysis. For me, I always focus on signing our own and look to free agents only in the last couple of weeks before free agency starts. START WITH $15.5M after signing Practice Squad, signing ERFA's, and tendering J Jones GET TO $33.5M by tearing up 3 contracts (they could sign new contracts) TE Gronkowski TE Allen DE Clayborne ============= This should be enough to start with. We have several key free agents needs to START T Brown Dorsett Hogan Patterson Hill 1-2 TE's (Gronk?, Allen?) ------ P Allen Gostkowski ------- Flowers J McCourty 1-2 DT/NT (Brown?, Shelton?) ============= There can also be restructures/extensions to Brady, McCourty, Hightower, Van Noy and Mason.
