    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    Guyton is should not be considered a starter at inside linebacker next year. Hes proved that he can fill in at times but he gets knocked around too much and isnt much of a presence on defense.

    They need to get an OLB in FA or the draft.

    Dont forget McKenzie (he was 3rd on the depth chart behind bruschi and mayo to start the 09 season)

    Dont forget Tate (first round talent that hasnt really played due to an injury)

    Dont forget Ohrenberger (sp) the guard that will most likely rotate with Connolly

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    i know theres plenty of back ups i missed on here. i also forgot Burgess at OLB. 

    i would not depend on Tate.  too much of a risk with Welker being out a while

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    Kaczur is signed for 4 years he isn't going anywhere he had injuries that limited him this year. They will focus on RG position and Let Light go and Put Vollmer at LT I think... now Banta-Cain is not a starting caliber player... great player for situational pass rushing but thats it... now as for the RB position I am hoping the Patriots do draft one of the top 4 backs in this draft Best and CJ are my favorites. basicly I could see the roster looking something like that. OH... also I hope they go after a true FB like Evans was I think that was a huge loss to the running game when they let him go.

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    I think this is realistic.  hear me out on this one.

    QB: Brady
    RB: Taylor, Draft Dwyer from Georgia Tech, Maroney, Faulk
    FB: Green-Ellis
    WR: Moss, Sign Antonio Bryant FA, Welker (IR), Edelman, Draft Jordan Shipley from Texas in 2nd round, Tate, Aiken to special teams.
    TE: Baker, Watson, cheap FA dont know who exactly
    LT: Vollmer
    LG: Mankins (re-sign)
    C: Koppen we need a FA here koppen is getting pushed around too much
    RG: Connely or mid level FA or Draft.
    RT: 1st round pick. 22nd pick of the draft.  again not sure who, but i want this pick to be Oline, either RG or RT, what happens to light?

    LE: Sign Julius Peppers FA.  jason Taylor FA.
    DT: Wilfork (re-sign or tag him), Wright
    RE: Warren,
    LOLB: TBC
    MLB: Mayo, Guyton, Mckenzie, cheap FA
    ROLB: 2nd round pick, Woods, Crable, tully banta cain, resign burgess cheap
    CB: Bodden (re-sign), Springs, Butler, Wilhite, wheatley, joe haden in the draft if he is still there at 22?
    FS: Meriweather, Chung
    SS: Sanders, Mcgowan, Chung can play either spot. 

    this is very rough but i think with the uncapped year we can spend a bit. 
    Get Peppers, Bryant and keep everyone else.  get rid of Thomas. of course theres a lot more to this.  but I believe just keeping most guys and getting Peppers and Bryant and drafting a 2nd RB will be Great.

    matt light lost my respect this season. he is no longer good.  he got destroyed by suggs. 

    Joe Haden isn't a bad choice, but I believe we need to fix our lines first and I think Bodden and Springs can hold the secondary together.

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    I see Banta-Cain as a 3rd down pass rush specialist. Guyton is also a backup. These two LB positions need a real every down player. I wouldn't worry about DB until we can bring the consistent heat on opposing QB's.

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    I really hope they hire an OC and DC soon. I think some level of stability in the coaching staff would put them in a better position to do what they need to get done in the offseason. They'd have a better chance of aligning on their philosophies earlier so they can get down to doing things right away. There's just so many things to address that one person can't do it all. To me addressing this is the bigger test of BB's greatness at this point.

    I just don't understand why so many of you guys are still in love with peppers. The man is 30 years old! He's making $20 million dollars! We could sign the top DE/OLB in the draft for less than that!

    We need youth and speed not over-hyped, overpaid FAs, most of whom become lazy underachievers as soon as the ink on the new contracts are dry. Just look at AT for  a perfect example of that phenomenon.

    Don't like the look of your L/Bs.

    Seriously think TBC on one side and Woods, Crable (IR for two years) and 2nd round rookie is going to fix our worst problem.

    Even counting for Peppers at DE who we won't get.

    Re: My Patriots for 2010

    The Pats should be able to find a guard, a tackle and a better center from this group.

    2010 NFL Free Agent Offensive Linemen

    By: Roshan Bhagat
     

    Age as of 9/1/10. All free agents listed here are done so with an optimistic outlook that a new CBA will be agreed upon. Accordingly, only four accrued seasons are necessary to obtain an Unrestricted Free Agency status on this list.

    Jahri Evans, New Orleans Saints (27) 
    Jahri Evans is continuing to grade out as the team’s best run-blocking linemen week after week. The Saints have done a nice job of efficiently running the ball through the middle and on the right side of the line. His continual high level of play and positive, team-first attitude should translate to a high-end offensive guard contract at year’s end. Expect the Saints, who have nothing but positive things to say towards Evans, to richly reward him for his hard work and production.

    Logan Mankins, New England Patriots (28)
    Logan Mankins has been a very consistent player for the Patriots since he was drafted, starting all 77 games. That type of consistency is difficult to match, but with free agency inflating the value of offensive guards, the Patriots may end up letting him walk if the price isn’t right. They drafted a couple interior linemen last year and have to use some of their free money to re-sign other players. From what Mankins has said, he wants to stay on this winning franchise, but he could be one of the top players available next offseason.

    Marcus McNeill, San Diego Chargers (26) 
    McNeill isn’t playing at an elite level this year, but is still an above average left tackle. He’s one of the “bigger” names at the left tackle position thanks to his spectacular and deservedly-hyped rookie season. McNeill has also been undercompensated the last few years playing on his rookie contract as a 2nd round pick, which may incline him to ask for more money than he “deserves.” Any of the Chargers could feasibly be had this offseason and McNeill is no different, but with some of the offensive line woes of the Chargers, McNeill may be one of their top priorities. His long-term neck and back problems could be in the back of the team’s mind as well.

    Willie Colon, Pittsburgh Steelers (27)
    After catching a lot of heat after last season’s wildly inconsistent performance, Willie Colon has done a fine job at right tackle for the Steelers. He’s done a nice job keeping Roethlisberger clean and turned in one of the better seasons for a right tackle in pass protections this year. Though Colon hasn’t been able to blow people off the snap in run-blocking, he’s done an average job for a line that has done a nice job allowing Mendenhall to become a good, young runner.

    Jared Gaither, Baltimore Ravens (24) – Restricted FA
    After being taken off the field on a stretcher in New England, Gaither luckily suffered no season or career threatening injury. His return to the field has helped the Ravens a little, but never really regained his level of play prior to the hit. The offensive line, Gaither included, has been one of many reasons for the team’s downhill turn. Still, with him on one side and impressive rookie Michael Oher on the other, the Ravens have found their bookend tackles. Even if the team and Gaither can’t settle on a long-term deal this offseason, they still have the ability to put a tender on him. At the very least, it would force teams to give up serious compensation for his services. Gaither’s length and athleticism are the ideal mold of a modern day left tackle.

     
    Donald Penn, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (27)
    Penn is one of the more underrated left tackles in football today and will be one of many talented offensive linemen set to become unrestricted free agents this year. While Penn hasn’t had his best season this year, he has proven in the pass to be one of truly balanced left tackles. Penn has done a nice job in the past of keeping the blindside clean of pressure and the Buccaneers have done a nice job this year running over left tackle. The Buccaneers should try to re-sign him quickly because a young left tackle on the market may see some high-end coin.

    Jermon Bushrod, New Orleans Saints (26) – Restricted FA
    The Saints called upon Jermon Bushrod to play left tackle the entire year after placing Jammal Brown to the IR due to a hip injury and a sports hernia. Bushrod has done a commendable job replacing the All-Pro Brown, who has a voidable contract at the end of this season. If Brown decides to become a free agent, the Saints would have an interesting choice. Brown will be coming off an injury and will ask for significant money, but has played at a Pro Bowl level whereas Bushrod is the younger, cheaper option with upside. Both of these players are talented enough and good enough to play left tackle on many teams.

    Daryn Colledge, Green Bay Packers (28) 
    Colledge is no longer viewed as the solution at left tackle in Green Bay. Mid-round TJ Lang has taken over the back-up position there. That alone is enough to make his value take a significant plunge. Colledge was even “put on notice” and warned about his subpar level of play, but has since picked it up a notch, as has the entire O-Line. His value outside of Green Bay may not be as high as it is within the organization because of a poor performance in the team’s biggest stage to date – Monday Night in Minnesota. Still, he’s an average starting offensive guard and a good pass protector in the interior. Colledge’s value will most likely be highest to the Packers because he’s a great fit for what they do and they know his true value.

    Kevin Mawae, Tennessee Titans (39) 
    Mawae has started all six games for the Titans this year, but with his contract expiring, the line may turn to Leroy Harris who will have been groomed for 3 years, sparingly seeing the field. If Mawae is up for another season, he could land on a number of teams, or just re-sign in Tennessee. He still has a little gas left in the tank and it the Titans pass on him, several teams will be lining up for him and accept the leadership he brings to the team.

    Chad Clifton, Green Bay Packers (34) 
    Clifton has suffered an ankle injury earlier this season forcing the Packers to retreat to other options at left tackle. After returning healthy to his position, Clifton and the entire offensive line has picked up their play and protected Rodgers at a more respectable level. Still, it’s quite clear that this year’s Clifton isn’t the model pass protector he’s been in the past. Clifton has lost a step and is now more susceptible to speed players and double moves. If Clifton isn’t offered another contract in Green Bay, where he’s played his entire career, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the franchise’s great blind side protector call it quits.

    Ehop that team looks worst than this year's
    You have the same line that was pushed around in both the running and passing game.  Watson will not stay he'll get offered more money somewhere else.

    Need more than Bryant at WR,

    Peppers is not a 34 DE, he would need to switch to OLB which IMO he won't be able to do.  Instead bring a young players
    LBs only worth as a starter is Mayo and IF we draft Hughes he will contribute.  Guyton is worthless in the middle
    Springs is old and not a #1 CB McGowan needs to go.

    if that's the roster for next year, we might be a .500 team I said MIGHT.  The schedule is brutal with that OL and DL we would get killed well Brady would.
