He sure looked good back in the 2003 season, so let’s hope that he can still lace them up in 2020.
Why the hell would you want A.J. Green? He's constantly hurt and he's 32 in July!! He's an aging WR with a history and injuries.
He should have plenty of time to properly heal, and even 75% of the usual Green would still make him an explosive receiving option on a team that lacks any aside from Julian. The likelihood of deep throws, red zone targets, contested catches, and chain-moving possession grabs still make him an attractive option.
In other words, there’s still a good chance that Belichick and company could get a nice year out of him, maybe even two. The biggest question would be the price tag, as his value on the market may likely still be too rich for NE.
If they’re cut I wouldn’t mind signing Patterson or Andre Roberts for return duties.
Kyle Juszczyk would be my top target for the Pats. Best fullback I've ever seen. He's even a threat in the passing game. He'd be great with Micheal & would be a perfect Patriot. However, I doubt San Fran will let him walk, because he & Kittle are that offense.
I want to say that he’s signed a new contract a few years ago, and I think it runs out next season.
The other Henry is going to get vastly overpaid by some team that ignores that his production was completely correlated to Tannehill's ascension into the ranks of top-5 QBs. I'd rather throw that money at Jack Conklin, who was actually responsible for it.
Robbie Anderson at wideout feels like almost chalk. He'll come cheaper than he should because the Jets suck and the Patriots know him and he's got what they lack - speed to burn.
Cory Littleton to replace Van Noy, Javon Hargrave for beef in the middle.
Karl Joseph if McCourty goes, though he won't.
Austin Hooper, Ebron, Hunter Henry would
Happily take any of those. My ideal guy would be Henry as he’s a great blocker as well as a receiving threat too.
Will be interesting to see what happens this off season.
Jordan Phillips, if the price is right. They obviously like him.
Steelers, Patriots, Saints Wanted Jordan Phillips
But seems like he wants to get PAID, so probably not a good fit in that regard.
I'd be stunned if Patterson isn't cut or forced into a paycut. I think he'll return to New England.
The PFR advanced stats have him somewhere around 15th-20th among DTs in total pressures (hurries, hits, and sacks combined) depending on how we count the 3-4 DEs that would be 4-3 DTs. He’s only worth big money if he maintains his rate of getting a sack on half of his total pressures, which can’t possibly happen long term.
Can't blame any of these FA for going after the money. These guys are playing against their long term health, reason for so many recent <30 yo retirees. Teams don't care about these guys so loyalty is dead.

Kennan Allen through a trade since he’s on his last year and LaC should be rebuilding soon
Who the Patriots should trade for would be an interesting thread (and another opportunity for me to advocate for Stafford) but it's not this thread.
Why? With Gilmore, Jackson, JMac, Jones, Williams, and Ross. I think that the Patriots are actually stacked at CB.. It's the Safety position I'm worried about.
DMac is a FA. Brooks showed he wasn't that good on defense. In fact, he was horrid as a replacement for Chung. A position that Williams should easily take over.
And I'm not convinced that Harmon is the guy to step into McCourty's shoes in terms of play-calling.
Robbie Anderson? You mean the guy who got arrested on 9 charges including resisting arrest on 2 separate occasions? And one of them included him threatening the arresting cop's wife? That Robbie Anderson?
