While we’d all like to see former Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha suiting up for the Patriots, we’re relatively certain some other NFL team will break the bank to acquire his services. That said, these three players seem like they would make a good fit.
Even though the Patriots have a pretty crowded depth chart at receiver, a true down-field threat has yet to emerge. Taylor Price and Brandon Tate are still options to develop, but if the Patriots aren’t feeling patient, Floyd’s 22+ yard average might be tough to pass up.
Gallery has long been a favorite of the Patriots coaching staff, ever since he broke into the league as the #2 pick with the Oakland Raiders. If Logan Mankins won’t re-sign, Gallery might be an option to replace him.
However, Mankins is clearly a better blocker and Gallery will ask for close to what Mankins signs for. If possible, re-signing the former 1st-rounder from Fresno State should be a priority.
When I first met Roth during his days at the University of Iowa, I couldn’t believe the intensity that he plays with. His motor and drive hasn’t changed in the NFL – providing the Patriots with an option to play some outside linebacker that has a proven track record of being able to disrupt the quarterback in the NFL.
