In Response to Re: AS USUAL....No Deals in FA for Patriots...Prelude to another Sorry Draft for this Team : what exactly is "their thing"?? I like to know what that is. If "their thing" means sitting back while other teams in our division improve while our team releases or doesn't sign players then yes, they'll be doing "their thing"! That's what they do best.

They are not going to jump in and go after a high dollar guy, they probably put a market value deal to Peppers but will not be close to the money the bears will give him.
Jake delohme is the first of bad contract releases, there will be other players. Who would you have wanted the pats to go after? Peppers? overpay for a DE that is projected as a 34 OLB a position he's never played before and pay him 13 mil a year? so in two years we have everyone saying he didn't pan out and critize BB for not making the right moves as he has been for the AD signing.
They will evaluate everyone thats available look at key roles they need and bring guys in will it be a huge name probably not but the biggest names we can land already play for them.
VW, Burgess, Bodden, TBC are the FAs they would have been going after anyways so they are probably going after them right now and see what they can get in FA as role players.
getting bodden is a bad idea, one year which he won't play every game because he'll be hurt for at least two in the season look at his stats then next year his contract year he'll be looking to break the bank. He is not a good option, WR depth in the draft is really good yes bodden is proven he's also proven to be hurt.
Why go out and get a big name when they big names are in your team and they need them. I'm sure they'll pickup a TE a blocker, maybe trade for Olson and a few other moves. They have good young players already, they'll get a couple of vets and pick some good players in the draft.
