You never know if/when an athlete wants to cash in on the last big paycheck.
I'm just hoping Cyrus Jones can field a punt without muffing it.
Kyle Van Noy would like to have a word with you.
Super excited that i will see Jordan Richards playing next year as a starter.
dont like mcdaniels back, hope he goes to mars
less injuries- some potential starters ,no one is talking about Rivers, Langi, not to mention Valentine and Mitchell which both woul be playing in SB as starters. And Cyrus Jones as slot corner.
overcome tough schedule
hope that Gronk and Dante does not retire
good draft especially without 2rd brainfart
I included him in the last paragraph as someone who needs to be replaced.
You’re right. Will edit accordingly. Forgot about KVN.
Remember ............ Tavon Wilson survived all four years of his rookie contract.
One of the stranger picks from Belichick lately, in my opinion. He may not even make the team if he doesn’t impress in TC and they have better options.
Just another of Bill Belichick's recent second round brain farts:
Offensive Tackles (4) - Solder, Cannon, Garcia?, xxxxxx
Offensive Guards (3) - Mason, Thuney, Croston
Centers (2) - Andrews, Karras
Fullbacks (1) - Develin
Running Backs (4) - Gillislee, White, xxxxxx, Bolden
Quarterbacks (3) - Brady, Hoyer, xxxxxx
Tight Ends (3) - Gronkowski, xxxxxx, Hollister?
Wide Receivers (5) - Amendola, Edelman, Hogan, Cooks, Dorsett or Mitchell
New England Patriots Salary Cap | Over the Cap

Salary Cap Additions (Offense)
Solder, Nate - $10,400,000
Amendola, Danny - $1,600,000
Richards needs to be on the next plane to siberia. He is god awful. Then BB needs to make amends with Pats Nation for leaving Butler on the bench for the biggest game of the year.
That said I think we saw the last best chance for a SB win. Brady will end with 5 and still be the GOAT.
Why didnt Edelman leave the Pats despite substantially more money elsewhere? Brady.
Why will Dola stay on with a slight pay increase and with full guarantees? Brady.
Patriots are going to go all-in, 2007 style.
I expect a big name on defense, probably via a released player or trade.
They are winning the SB.
I like those player but Bennett was grossly overpaid, Ryan was replaced by Gilmore, and Sheard was not coming back for both financial and behavior reasons. And as much as I like Blount personally their run game was much better without him and he was one of their worst playoff players on a consistent basis. If they weren’t playing the Colts he was worthless.
Imo the Patriots had an excellent offseason last offseason and people claiming they didn’t are engaged in revisionist history. Pretty much the entire fan base here was really excited by what they had done in the offseason and excited about the team going into the year. They went 13-3 and lost in the final minutes of the Super Bowl, and that was after losing more games to injury than every team but one, and I think the leader in that category was the Giants, who are picking top 3.
Do they have a lot of work to do this offseason, without a doubt, especially in the defensive side of the ball, but bemoaning the loss of guys like Blount makes no sense to me. And while I can see where Sheard could have helped I think most here realized his relationship with the team had seriously eroded, and that he wanted more than they thought he was worth.
I tuned it all out, plenty of other things to focus on.
let me get this stright........Bennett was grossly overpaid so we let him walk and trade for Dwayne Allen......who makes more than Bennett
now I am starting to see towards the origins of the idea that the defense was better without Butler
