Patriots: Some familiar names are staying and some are going in a quiet first day of free agency for the Patriots

March 15, 2022

Free agency unofficially began yesterday with the legal tampering window starting today at noon. As expected, the Patriots primarily focused on retaining some of their players while losing some key contributors as well. Here are my thoughts on day one of free agency for the Patriots. I thought J.C Jackson got a fair market deal from the Los Angeles Chargers. Jackson signed a five year, $82.5 million dollar contract. He…


Patriots: Should they stay or should they go? Which of their free agents should the Patriots re-sign?

March 13, 2022

The Patriots have 18 free agents. 16 of them are unrestricted free agents and there are some familiar names on the list including Devin McCourty, Trent Brown, Dont’a Hightower, J.C Jackson and Ted Karras. So who should Bill Belichick bring back? Well, much of that will depend on cap space and the Patriots don’t have a lot of it. They currently have just over $10 million in space. Here is…

NFL free agency kicks off next week and we will plenty of coverage in the coming days. There has a lot of movement already, specifically with the quarterback market.

Patriots: Patriots should bring back James White

March 8, 2022

James White, a three-time Super Bowl champion and Patriot since 2014, is going to be a free agent in just over a week for the second year in a row. Like last year, the Patriots should bring him back into the fold for 2022 to bolster their already strong running back group. White, 30, played in only three games in 2021 before suffering a hip injury that ended his season….


Patriots: Latest news on Julian Edelman means the Patriots are still in the market for a receiver

April 9, 2021

According to a story by the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian today, Julian Edelman is not expected to play the entire 2021 season.

Patriots: Patriots re-sign David Andrews to a four year deal

March 18, 2021

He’s back! Center David Andrew’s re-signed with the Patriots tonight. Andrews signed a four year deal with the team but financial terms were not released. Andrews had been linked to other teams most notably the Falcons (He’s from Georgia) Packers and Dolphins. In the end, Andrews more than likely took less money to stay in New England. He loves it here and this is where he wanted to be all…

Patriots: Bill Belichick goes on a wild shopping spree to unofficially kick off free agency

March 15, 2021

Bill Belichick is a changed man. A 7-9 season will do that to you I guess. Gone are the days where the Patriots are shopping for deals. As of today, those days are over in New England. The Patriots are big spenders now. Armed with over $60 million dollars in cap space, Belichick splurged and in the process landed some of the top names on the free agent market. Belichick…
