I think we can all agree that if there was one area in the Patriots defense that most needed an upgrade this offseason, it was next to Patrick Chung at safety.

Despite a weak safety draft class and a shallow free agent market, the Patriots addressed that need drafting Tavon Wilson and Nate Ebner and signing Steve Gregory and Will Allen.

So where will Gregory and Allen fit in this season and are they the answer the Patriots need?


2012 NFL Free Agency: Patriots Sign CB Will Allen

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.
