James Sanders Patriots

Sanders' great play against the Colts in 2010 will be our lasting memory of his play in New England.

The Patriots parted ways with veteran safety James Sanders today, in a move that clears nearly $3 million in cap space. Sanders totaled eight interceptions and over 300 tackles during his six seasons with the Patriots.

Also notable among the releases were long-snapper Matt Katula, 7th-Round pick Malcolm Williams, and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite.

Signed by the Patriots were wide-receiver Tiquan Underwood, long-snapper James Dearth, and former Patriot WR/DB Ross Ventrone. More on Underwood after the jump.


James Sanders Resigns with Patriots

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

The first dividends of the Matt Cassel trade have now been realized. With the $18 million dollars in cap room created, James Sanders has become the first player re-signed, inking a 3-year deal on March 1st.

The 25 year old safety has played with the Patriots since 2005, when he was drafted out of Fresno State. He is projected to start alongside Brandon Meriweather, unless further moves shake up the defensive depth chart.

According to Reiss’ Pieces, Sanders turned down more money to stay with the Patriots. You have to love guys that put winning and loyalty ahead of the glitz and glamour.
