In response to patriots44's comment:
I have Cards season Tickets. 2 things, he can't cover anyone anymore. As soon as HGH testing is in place he will be suspended. Not the same player he was 3 years ago. On the good side, Belichick will use him to his strengths.Still a big time hitter, biggger and stronger than Rodney, good football IQ.
If you're being serious...then let me tap your knowledge!
1) What position did he mainly play? Up at the line? Back in coverage? About 50/50?
2) How was he? I mean simply, as a fan of football and going to games...was he a player you watched? Did he show up in plays a lot? Shoving matches?
What you said so far sounds perfect for the role I envision him playing:
With ONE more piece (talib), I feel very comfortable with the Pats' secondary. Wilson plays mostly near the line, against the TEs, up the middle (2 areas of weakness), and heavily against the run. McCourty gets to play over the top where he's been best, looking into the backfield. Talib at one corner, Dennard/Arrington/Player X/Likely Draft pick as CBs 2-4.
Chandler Jones being back healthy will be a HUGE plus. Hopefully he stays healthy. With Vince, Deaderick, Ninkovich/whoever at the line, I expect a better pass rush overall. We all saw the difference with Talib on the field. It opened up a LOT of options for the D. Jones and Talib never really played together completely healthy. I'd really like to see that team, with the obvious LBs, play healthy...at least early in the season I bet it would be fun.
