It’s been a long off-season so far, and we’ve still got over a month to go before training camp opens up for our New England Patriots. That said, we here at NEPD want to know which moves have you excited this off-season, and which moves have you worried. You can choose from draft picks, free agents, players released, etc… We’ll get the discussion going.
When the Patriots drafted Brandon Spikes, at least one player was smiling, along with a few million Patriot fans. Jerod Mayo has to be excited about the possibility of Spikes taking on some guards from the “Mike” position, letting Mayo flow to the ball and make some plays. Seeing these two former-SEC thumpers on the same field sounds like a dream. The new TE’s and re-signing Vince/Leigh would be my honorable mentions.
This is a tough one, as I really like what the Patriots have done this spring. That said, the loss of Jarvis Green is a tough one. Even though he didn’t have a spectacular year in 2009, he was a solid option at the 5-tech DE spot. The Patriots do have some options to fill that spot (Deaderick, Pryor, Wright, Lewis), but none of them have proven themselves consistent starters.
