In the Starting Line-Up
Would love to see another MLB to mentor under Hightower.

Maybe Zaven Collins?

Add another piece for DL depth and the defense is looking quite good. Also wouldn't be surprised to see them draft a CB, perhaps Horn, depending on how Jackson shakes out.

When I thought we were in a slow rebuild I didn’t want him back. I didn’t know Bill would try and kick the rebuild into hyperdrive. Move makes sense with our need for LBs.
He's sick of the media harping on how Brady bested him. Bill wants to win the Super Bowl without Brady and preferably this season.

i wonder why he was released from Miami...seemed like he‘d be a good fit for Flores’ defense...

I won't claim Belichick is immune to that stuff, but I feel like Bill would have come out guns blazing after a 7-9 season regardless of what Brady did. Dude HATES losing, and hasn't had to feel it for 20 years. I think this was always going to be the plan. It's like when people say, "Oh man, Brady is going to be EXTRA motivated for THIS game!" as if Brady ever comes in thinking "Meh, I'll just coast through this one." Those things just aren't in these guys' blood.

Its extra motivation. Even Brady needs it sometimes. Pats Bucs will be epic ratings this season and the SuperBowl. It will be billed Brady vs Bellichick no matter who our QB is. Guaranteed Bill is aleady starting on his game plan. It will unleash hell with constant pressure on Brady.

Obviously he wants to win every year, but it's really no deeper than the fact that we had money to spend this year. What was he going to do? Not spend it?

Cool I suppose. He plays well under Belichick but please no more nicknames. The “boogeymen” had a very underwhelming finish to 2019.

I still hope we address ILB at some point this April. Need some youth to eventually take over. That being said great signing!

It's definitely going to be a fascinating (and heartbreaking) game to watch. If anyone knows how best to attack Brady, it's Bill. But Brady no doubt knows enough about how Bill coaches defense to find whatever weaknesses they have by that point. If that's not a Sunday night or Monday night game, someone should be fired.

went from bentley and....to KVN, Judon, Hightower

I wouldn't really count KVN and Judon as the same position as Hightower and Bentley. The former two play on the edge and the latter two play ILB. KVN has played some ILB in the past, but that was arguably why he struggled in Detroit.
