A capable reliable 6th OL when the 1st cam mine around making 6 the backup for all 5 is almost worth the cost of a starter.Belichick pays backups more than most. His position is important. He is the Game Day backup at C and G.
We can hope that Herron is a good at backing up the tackles.
We’ll see the details, but i’m skeptical it’s a real 4 year deal for a guy who missed a season due to blood clots in his lungs. I’m guessing the Patriots have an out after 2 with minimal impact. We’ll see.And again - the most important - and very rare - part of this FA - another long term deal for NE on lower market!

Plus if a T goes out, Onwenu could go back to T and Karras play G, so 6 linemen together cover an injury at any of the 5 positions! No need to go 7 deep unless 2 go down. Very versatile grouping. Edit...Oops, and Ring 6 pretty much said exactly that...This is great news, Karras is a more than capable back up to all 3 interior line positions. Injuries happen it’s always good to have good back ups.
Why does it suck to be Karras? He gets to do what he does best, play as a reserve in multiple offensive positions. He'll get into every game for a few snaps. He'll be part of the solution and a pair of fresh legs we can bring in at the end of games to help us finish strongWow! It was really weird he didn’t sign but damn sucks to be Karras
I love BB... but it's March... no games have been played... and QB is still a ?.Dear Ian,
Please don't erase this gem:
Here they come. Knives out! USA Today: Belichick's greatest mistake was betting against Tom Brady. https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/2021/02/10/bill-belichicks-greatest-mistake-was-betting-against-tom-brady/ I'll post other media content related to the title here as well so it's all in one place.www.patsfans.com
I plan on referencing it early and often.
they seriously have the makings of a super bowl
Yes definitely need a good QB....not Newton. We could work with a 2001-2004 Charlie Weis short passing, heavy run offense with a QB that can make Quick decisions and can make all the throws....sometimes on the run. Doesn’t have to be superstar but efficient and not turning it over....Call me a homer but with New England's superior coaching, I firmly believe BB is a QB away from putting a Super Bowl-caliber roster together. Retaining Andrews is mammoth if only for solidifying the starters and improving depth.
