    I can't think of a single reason why any of them would have a spot here

    If we didnt pick up Taylor I'd take EJ over him. 3 years younger and just as effective. Ya dig?

    I can think of a few reasons why LaBoy would come here. 1.) Competition -- BB loves competition in camp 2.) Ability [but how long do you wait for ability lol] 3.) He has the build of a 3-4 OLB. 4.) Floyd Reese -- LaBoy is one of his kids from his time with the Oilers/Titans. I would tend to agree with that none of them will be here. But in some ways I wouldn't be shocked if LaBoy came in for cheap. A guy with his protracted injury history and failures as a three down DE won't be expensive, especially for a good team like NE. And if he can't hack it, they could cut him after camp. I would say worth a look. Although part of me doesn't want them to bring anyone in, because I want to see what Crable et al can get done.

    Absolutely agree on LaBoy. Edge and Hood are possiblities too at the minimum. The idea would be that they wouldn't make the team, but could add depth in the offseason just in case of injury. The Pats don't really have that much depth at RB or the secondary. Of course, I expect that they'll get contract offers from other teams. Hood is the perfect pickup for a team that doesn't have three CBs that they know they can rely on (there are plenty of teams like that). He's not a great DB, but he's good enough. Edge had a bad year last year, but had been productive most every other year of his career. Some team with issues with their RB depth may want to offer him something well above the minimum.
