By Mike Dussault, 2 years 6 months ago
This offseason there seem to be more holes than usual in the New England Patriots' personnel. With the departure of both starting cornerbacks and long-time stalwart Vince Wilfork, as well as questions at guard and unproven depth at running back, the Patriots could have a number of rookies immediately step into starting slots. The other concern is at linebacker, where both Jerod Mayo and...

New England Patriots Sticking to Proven Philosophy in Free Agency

By Mike Dussault, 2 years 7 months ago
The New England Patriots' decade-and-a-half of dominance was not built with over-priced free agents, yet every offseason the collective followers of the team seem to forget this simple fact. Despite handing out plenty of top end deals over that time, usually to their own players who are just hitting the primes of their careers, the Pats are often labelled as "cheap." That...
