A look at the Patriots impending free agents shows that the team will be forced to make several very important decisions moving forward. There are several key players, especially on […]
Burleson said about the Patriots roster building, “It’s not about where you are, it’s about where you’re headed.” Really good stuff there.
His teammates call him “Danny Playoffs” or “Playoff ‘Dola” for his penchant of big-time catches when the stage is the biggest.
New England natives have strong opinions on Dont’a Hightower, with crucial plays from Super Bowls 49 and 51 etched in their memory. As the linebacker makes his free agency tour, how do writers and fans view the potential of seeing Hightower wearing black and gold at Heinz Field?
Develin is a very good lead blocker in the running game, can carry the ball, is good in pass protection, and can line up as an H-back/tight end.
He’s a very good playmaker with six interceptions and 25 passes defensed in the last two seasons, along with a forced fumble and 131 tackles.
The 6’6, 350-pound Branch while an immovable force inside is quite athletic for a big man and enjoys skateboarding since he was a kid in New Mexico.
The Patriots and Butler will forever be linked by the one play in Super Bowl XLIX where he intercepted Russell Wilson at the goal line and sealed the win.
The Patriots unquestioned best linebacker and arguably their most indispensable player on the front seven is Hightower
Bennett caught 55 passes for 701 yards and 7 touchdowns. He completely bought into the team-first concept and was a popular teammate in the locker room.
The Patriots will enter the 2017 offseason with a ton of cap space ($61,248,593) but have 21 players hitting free agency.
like many of Bill Belichick’s moves, it was a bargain for the team. Now Sheard joins the ranks of those players deserving of a new deal.
The Patriots should find a younger, more athletic right tackle and then re-do Vollmer’s contract and move him to swing tackle. That falls in line with the Patriots way of thinking, which is to replace a player perhaps a year too soon rather than a year too late.
What the Patriots would really like is an upgrade at the RCB position and move Ryan into the slot. Bill Belichick loves his veterans on the defense and would like to bring in a veteran presence and allow the others to compete and sort out the rest.
Now the team has to decide whether to bring back Chandler who also battled injuries last season for a second go around and cover his cap hit of $3 million-dollars or cut him for a savings of $2.05 million.
