In response to PatsEng's comment:
The day is finally here and who do you want or expect, other then our own FA's
For me it's:
David Nelson WR
Keenan Lewis CB or Chris Houston CB
Glover Quin S or Quintin Mikell S
Connor Barwin OLB
Michael Bennett DE
I actully hope they stand pat today cuz only BIG money is moving...But eventually I would like...
Adrian Wilson, Ed Reed(1 year fixes), Kenny Phillips, Louis Delmas(longterm), . Basically ANY safety Help. I understand Wilson would be here for a year so I really like K.P. but he has knee issues So I would take either Wilson or Reed for one year and draft a S this year to groom.
Josh Cribbs + Danny Amendola in place of Wes Welker. Both are under 30 and would be combined cheaper than what Wes is asking and you get a return man/wildcat/4th WR out of Cribbs while getting a younger all be it less reliable slot WR for the future in Amendola. I have never really researched Danny but I heard he is capable of doing Wes' job if healthy. He is younger, taller, faster and Cheaper and may have some knowledge of system
Desmond Bryant, Cliff Avril - I know Bryant is a good player because ATJ told me so and I know C.Avril can play and help out a lot but he may be one of the early signings that gets the brink truck so maybe we just settle with the CFL guys. Have no idea what they do here after the Fanene disaster but I would expect them to draft a DT/DE this April pretty high.
Dunta Robinson, A.Talib, Rashean Mathis, Bradley Fletcher, Cedric Griffin,Cpt. Munnerlyn, D.Hall - Very deep class and I dont Really have favorites, just need help. I would like for them to sign Talib if its a good deal with injury incentive and then sign 2 mid level guys off this list.
Manny Lawson/Anthony Spencer - I believe we are pretty set at LB, with Fletcher returning back to health and the drafting of Hightower but I would like to see a 3-4 type OLB added to give us the flexibility to go back to 3-4 at times. I believe the 3-4 is a better base D to get pressure because of that 4th rusher being unknown at the snap. I would like to see C.J. play a bit standing up and have one of these guys across from him.
Im sure the Pats can find a RT out there. Take a look at Winston while Cannon comes along but I wouldnt break the bank for Vollmer and his yearly back issues. If he returns at decent money fine, but there is a reason Dante has been here forever sooo. Thats it for me. I would look to the draft for a DT, S, WR, CB, OL in that order with the above coming to fruition.
