But does it have to include this guy?
It may. Why wouldn’t you sign the best special teamer you can find while other teams are ignoring the position? You want to wait until he gets other offers?
You act like something was sacrificed to sign him.
I like this signing. Special teams demons have value and a place in the nfl. Bb seems to keep four or five on the roster every year.
If he can take gunner snaps away from jones, then that leaves more snaps for Jones on defense.
It ain’t that deep Andy
ST little monster (4.37) that has significantly more D experience than Pats core ST guys (D&O). Think Bademosi but cheaper (id guess).
Early ACL, MCL injuries at BAL (3rd round pick) set him back after strong rookie season. Made record time recovery which could indicate character, work ethic.
Terrence Brooks was drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft after a stellar collegiate career at Florida State. Brooks was regarded as one of the best free safeties in the draft class - with blazing speed, blitzing ability and the elusive 'rangy' centerfielder coverage ability.
Brooks came on strong during his rookie season. He played 245 defensive snaps, including time as a slot corner.
Entering his prime he could become actual solid back up from the core ST group that is usually missing. Enters the FS backup competition behind D-Mac w Obi. That makes quite a nice FS back up competition after few empty years. Pats might still go S at Draft for their future starter though..
Signing him on a 2 year deal indicates Pats see him making 53/46 roster.
But yeah, funny signing, funny, funny, funny..

Offense does not win your SBs. Special team does.
Of all the lost causes on the forum, I think you're responding to the most lostest.
"All three phases of the game".. it is that Pats attention to details that helps them be so successful..
Why does it matter if they sign him now or later?? The sooner he comes in the sooner he becomes acclimated to the Pats winning culture.
Hmm. Great info. Good morning reading here.
Mosslost might be vying for that title
It never ceases to amaze me how every single year Pats fans here and elsewhere wring their hands at the seemingly underwhelming signings that come to Foxboro while everyone else is snatching up the big names. I mean, this franchise has played in FOUR OF THE LAST FIVE SUPER BOWLS. They understand how to build a team. Obviously. It's not just that they win because they have Brady, though obviously that helps (duh). They put together great teams year in, and year out, because they know how to do this.
Doesn't mean they'll get every decision right. But you can bet that unless #12 is injured, they're going to the AFCCG at minimum. Yes even with the Maurice Harris, Mike Pennel, Matt Lacosse, Terrence Brooks, and Bruce Ellingtons of the world.
I must say I'm disappointed... where is the BB sipping orange juice pic?!
This is the type of stuff that drives me crazy.
We get a bunch of special teams guys and kickers who get tossed off the team. Then the draft happens, we trade down a hundred times and never get anyone. I think belichick is literally building players out of spare parts like Frankenstein
Where do any of these guys come from lol. I get it really, B.B. thinkS he can’t draft because goodell takes them all. So, we beat elite teams with garbage
Ask and you shall receive.
Andy, on a normal day I would disagree and do so resoundingly. However, I’ve been around here a while.
I swear that look is like “I’m going to destroy you”
I'm not sure if it was that coach's bfast or another one but there was one in which the minute BB sat down he had like 30 handheld recorders, phones and mikes stuffed in front of him. Visibly annoyed and exasperated, before he spoke he started pushing them all to the side and then spoke for less than 2 minutes.
We do beat teams with what they believe is garbage.
I saw that one. It was hillarious because he hardly said anything after shoving those microphones away.
Because there is nothing to reasonably disagree with and you know that.
