Yup. Now comes Abraham. BB is putting it all together.
Can the whiners step up and admit that they may have been a little impetuous the past few days? BB knows what he's doing.
Now, sign Abraham, Talib, and offer Vollmer no more than 7 per. If he refuses, give the reigns to Cannon and let Scar work his magic. Draft more OL and DL depth in the draft, trade Mallett for picks or for a DT, and bring in a couple more WR bodies for camp.
I couldn't be happier with the way things are looking for the Pats, honestly.
The BBWs (Babe and Pezzy), Irrationals (Mt Hurl and his pathetic group) and Millenials like a Bdbreu will never quite get there is a systematic process to building a team and this thing called the salary cap.
Obviously, getting a guy like Wilson who will put a hurting on people from that position, is huge to pair with McCourty and tutor Tavon Wilson.
Sounds like Emmanuel Sanders could be next with the Abraham deal after that. Abraham has "come to terms", but hasn't "signed", for whatever reason.
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.
He'll be used correctly. No one is looking for an elite coverage safety if McCourty is that. Also, Tavon Wilson was a CB in college, so I am sure he and Adrian Wilson will share some reps.
BB will use him around the line, on blitzes, as the big nickel on TEs, etc.
Plus, you may be spoiled seeing him be the best Safety in the NFC for 10 years and now him not being as dominant as he once was. Pats could use the IQ, experience and hitting on the back end.
We're talking about a very accomplished Safety here, whose resume is only short on a SB ring.
One thing about Adrian is, he takes great care of his Body. No doubt he will show up in great shpe. He said that he wanted to sign with someone on the west coast. Having a chance to win a ring is definitely the reason he signed with us.
