Indefinite New England Patriots Thread

Recommended Posts

Pats trading a 5th round pick to PHI for DL Michael Bennett and a 7th. Already talk of his brother Martellus coming out of retirement to rejoin NE. Gronk also rumored to be in discussions with the team to see if they can find help at TE to potentially put Gronk on a snap count

If Rosen is now available I wonder if NE is interested. 

I believe they were interested last year.

Probably would have to give up #32. Gotta think Rosen would still be ranked higher than Lock if he were in the draft this year.

I would like to see Bill give a 2nd rounder for Rosen. I wouldn't part with #32.

Amendola taking a physical today with DET. Expected to sign a one year deal worth $4.5 million all guaranteed with another $1.2 million available through incentives.

I think we might get him for a 3rd and future 5th, Rosen that is.

If the cost isn't high I think they will kick the tires on Rosen. A 3rd and a 5th would fit the bill, although it might take more than that to land him. Not sure it is worth delving into the first or second round territory if Brady really intends to stick around 2-3 more seasons. They may not know how Rosen would do if Brady were to take all the snaps.

Pretty easy choice on the tender. Retain his rights on the cheap and hope he can play... at some point. Minimal impact on salary cap and if some team offers a second it's an easy accept. Classic win/win.

I assume Flowers and Brown leaving is a guaranteed two 3rd round compensatory picks?

Only if the Pats stay away from signing other top free agents.  They can sign anyone that was cut from another team without impacting the compensatory pick formula though. 

But yes, both players will qualify for third round compensatory picks.

I guess it cost a pretty penny to get a piece of the GOAT. TB12 did a signing here last weekend. To get a signature cost $1049 to $2199 depending upon the item being signed and if you purchased the item or supplied your own. Mind you, that did not include the cost of the item itself. That price was for just the signature. I would not have guessed that Brady would be that into killing a day to make essentially lunch money for him. It was not a meet and greet, so it’s not like you got to say hi and get a selfie.

That cap space money should be going to Gostkowski.

I'm among Patriots fans who have been frustrated by his big game missed kicks. But, he's still the best option at Kicker by a wide margin.

There's no next man up to replace Gronk.

The Patriots have serious problems to solve in their passing game.

 

Football is a brutal business. Malcolm Mitchell also retired recently due to injuries. He was the Patriots 4th round draft pick (#112) in 2016.

They have a first and two seconds in a decent class for wr and te. They rarely draft for need and i think the odds are good they dip into the d line pool if they like one in particular but they seem likely to add a big target.

If true, that's hard to believe at this stage of the game.  You sure about the details of this?

Recklessly speculating that he got caught cheating in his wife?

Ian Rappaport referenced an unspecified private family matter requiring his attention, so I'm not sure if the speculation is reckless or not...unless you consider speculation about personal lives to be reckless by definition (some do).  Since I don't, I would think an adulterer would prioritize career over marital preservation so I speculate its something else.

Gostkowski is coming back.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001025811/article/kicker-stephen-gostkowski-resigns-with-patriots

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski got what he wanted in the end.

The New England Patriots on Tuesday brought back Gostkowski on a two-year deal, NFL Network's Michael Giardi reported. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

ESPN first reported the news.

The 35-year-old Gostkowski lasted on the free-agent market for a little less than month, but re-signing with the Patriots remained a priority, as Giardi pointed out the veteran kicker told him a return to New England was his "first choice."

And now signed Seferian-Jenkins at TE. Probably a prove-it type deal with low risk and the hopes of a high return. Solid move, if so.

EDIT: via twitter - minimum deal with incentives. Love it.

Belichick/Brady says it all.

Whatever they do seems to work,  without question (Niner fan here) the best ran franchise in NFL history.  Came a long ways since Babe Parilli and Larry Garron.

Patriots projected to have 14 picks next year:

- One first

- One second

- Three thirds (2 compensatory)

- Two fourths

- Three sixths (2 compensatory)

- Four sevenths

Granted, most of them are second and third day picks  Pretty clear they can’t use them all, so most likely they will use them to move up on draft day if there are players they really like

I predict the Patriots will use their first round pick and trade the other 13 picks to get 16 picks back (not all in 2020).

What looked to be a disastrous exodus might actually be better built: 

they added a young QB and some special teams. 

They might have gotten better everywhere! We lost a few studs but what group doesn’t look better than last year?

+ DB, RB added nice rookie

+/- DL, OL, QB, LB, WR (I can see WR, DL and OL actually rating + as a whole)

- TE unless they get Rudolph and would it surprise if the TE receptions go up? Blocking took big hit. 

Liking the off-season
