It was just about a year ago that I deemed Wes Welker the perfect Patriot—that he should be a Patriot for life.
I made this bold statement following Welker’s infamous drop in Super Bowl XLVI as he was set to hit free agency. I strongly believed that Welker deserved a contract extension—I didn’t necessarily believe that he should be devalued due to his timely drop.

Alongside wide receiver Wes Welker and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, starting safety Patrick Chung is considered one of New England’s most valuable impending free agents.
Chung, who is set to turn 25 years old in August, has established himself as one of New England’s best defensive players since being drafted with the Patriots’ top pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The Boston Herald recently reported that New England has yet to discuss a contract extension with Chung, but it is expected that New England would be interested in re-signing Chung before he reaches the open market.
Of course, both the team and the player must be receptive to an extension, so a middle ground will have to be reached in order for the club to lock up Chung long-term.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Patriots and guard Logan Mankins have come to terms on a six-year contract.
After the terse back and forth during the 2010 season with the Patriots front office and Mankins’ agent Frank Bauer, this comes as great news for Patriots fans and the Patriots offense alike.
Terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed, but one would assume that Mankins’ 2011 cap figure will be significantly lower than the $10m he was slated to earn under the franchise tag.

According to Aaron Wilson of Fox Sports, 1st-round pick Nate Solder (OT, Colorado) has signed his rookie contract with the New England Patriots.
The Patriots had just over $8.5 million remaining in their rookie allocation, so you can expect Solder receive the balance over the four years of the deal.
