With the NFLPA and NFL brass rapidly coming to an agreement to a new collective bargaining agreement, the NFL free agent market might be open as soon as next week. Who should the Patriots target?
We’ll start things out with our pick. We talked about already about Matt Roth, Malcolm Floyd and Robert Gallery, but have been saving this guy.
While Mathias Kiawanuka might be a tempting fit for the Patriots 3-4 defense, Sidney Rice would be an intriguing downfield threat, but our choice would the 49ers linebacker Manny Lawson.
We were big proponents of Lawson’s back when the Patriots drafted Laurence Maroney. He hasn’t made a huge impact on the stat sheet (12 sacks), but has been very good in coverage and against the run.
If the Patriots used Lawson more as a rusher (he was often subbed out on 3rd down), he could have a career renaissance in Foxboro.
I’ve said my piece, which NFL Free Agent do you want the Patriots to sign?
