Andre Carter’s performance in 2011 was a revelation, both for Carter and the New England Patriots.

However, training camp is rapidly approaching and little progress has been made on a new contract – is there still room for Carter on the Patriots roster?

NEPD Staff Writer: Matthew Jones

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.

2012 NFL Free Agency: Patriots Sign CB Will Allen

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

NEPD Editor: Doug Kyed

In a very Patriots esque maneuver, in the midst of the Saints discipline and Tebow-to-the-Jets, the Patriots signed former Dolphins CB Will Allen according to Bryan McIntyre.

The Patriots love to bring in veteran defensive backs, in the past signing Shawn Springs, Leigh Bodden, Lewis Sanders, Deltha O’Neal, etc.

Allen played in 15 games this season, with six starts and 676 total snaps at slot corner after missing all of 2010 and half of 2009 with a knee injury. Before Allen’s knee injury, Allen was the 10th rated CB on Pro Football Focus in 2008 and 32nd in 2009 despite missing half the season.
