Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

How has re-signing Sebastian Vollmer, Aqib Talib and others changed the Patriots draft strategy?

NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

The New England Patriots have kept with their usual strategy during the first two weeks of this year’s NFL free agency.

Report: Patriots sign Emmanuel Sanders to Offer Sheet

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette the Patriots have signed Steelers Restricted Free Agent WR Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet. Sanders was in Foxboro on Friday, but it was unknown up to this point if he signed an offer sheet. By signing the offer sheet the Patriots force the Steelers to match the contract offer or give him up to the Patriots. In doing so the Patriots will have to surrender their 3rd round pick (#92) to the Steelers.

Update: Multiple sources, including Tom Curran and Adam Schefter have contradicted the earlier and state that an offer sheet has not been signed.
