    Monday Media Pulse 2/11/13

    NFL network... per Shalise Manza Young Patriots will keep Welker, Lloyd and sign Vollmer to the franchise tag.   Per another reporter.. look for the Patriots to go after Ed Reed stating the Ed Reed pick up is a classic Belichick move.

    Thoughts?

    I don't tink Ed Reed will ever play to the level that the Past would have to pay him. He's heart and success is in BAL. We are not talking about picking up Jr. Reed has won a SB. A lot of people with have contentment that Jr never really got to. Reed could well turn out to be another AD Thomas.

    Eh there are just as many things saying we are going to let Vollmer, Talib, Welker walk and cut Lloyd.  Honestly I have no idea what is going to happen.  I will say that if we do use the tag it will be on Vollmer.  None of the other guys make sense imo.

    The Boston Globe believes free agent CB Aqib Talib will have to be amenable to a "very fair contract" to re-sign with the Patriots.

    In other words, exceptionally team friendly. It's understandable given Talib's well-documented off-the-field issues, but his age (27 on Wednesday) and shutdown upside should draw robust interest on the open market. It's why the franchise tag could be his most likely means of remaining in New England. Talib would be due $10.7 million under the tag.   Source: Boston Globe Feb 11 - 9:33 AM

    I see a much greater likelihood that they will franchise Vollmer than Talib.

    Target one of the whole host of other CB FA's with less off-field concerns but slightly less on field potential. Take your choice, here's a list of FA's I would put on the same teir as Talib when all things are considered:

    • Keenan Lewis
    • DRC
    • Chris Houston
    • Brent Grimes

    Now I'd rather have Talib over any of them because we know he works well in the system but really any of the above would be an upgrade to what we had starting last year. Then you have the next teir which have solid starters but not shut down, or injury concerns, or not enough years to prove whether they are a one hit wonder or not:

    • Tony Carter
    • Derek Cox
    • E.J. Biggers
    • Leodis McKelvin

    DMC or DRC? McCourty I think should stay at FS. It seems like his more natural position and having back there as a QB helped stabilize a bad secondary. If you are talking DRC then he's another guy with shut down ability but with more effort concerns then Talib. Imo you'd be getting the same talent back with less off-field concerns but slightly higher on-field concerns.

    As for the draft I think they would need to draft one anyways just matters where. If they don't sign a starter imo you are looking at the 1st or 2nd round. If you are looking for a #3 slot CB you can wait until the 3rd or hope someone like the Mathieu to drop.

    Personally from that list I think I'd take Houston. He was killed in the Atl game but with that one exception he was extremely solid all year. His completion given up % was lower then Talib's and he seemed to hold his own bumping at the line. But, then again we've seen Lions CB's leave Det and look horrible so I'd rather have the known in Talib then Houston
