typical patriot response from Kraft and coach bb, we won’t admit we screwed up the SB and the Jimmy G trade, nothing to see here, we are onto next season where we will continue to shop for bargain based free agents and draft players in the second rd that have 6th round potential, lets not go all in with the reigning MVP. lets pretend Gronk and Brady are not happy with the atmosphere in the locker room

So.. what I’m getting from McD is that Kraft/Belichick told him– You’re going to be our head coach soon, but no guarantees.

As a 30 front team, I’d bet they’re planning on playing all 3.

And with the addition of Stewart, there’s not a huge hole there anyway.

Kraft says there was a meeting with himself, Belichick and Brady this offseason. “The residual of this loss was hard on everyone.”

Maybe Kraft and Brady finally had an airing of grievances and were able to bitch out BB for Butler, then they all cried, hugged and decided to kick ass this year. All is well again

Cam Fleming signed a one year deal with Cowboys … the money is low enough should the Pats have signed him? Would he have taken that offer from Pats?

Neil X
Member
Free agent

I’d heard he wanted to go someplace where he would start,and he was not going to replace Cannon here. But I didn’t hear that he had ruled out coming back here.

hugowasmyhomeboy
Member
Free agent

Fleming has drawn the start at LT for us before. With the roster as constructed, he had as clear a path to starting as you can ask for.
I’d think the Pats simply chose Waddle over Fleming. I’d have preferred Fleming. He’s available more and I’m more concerned with the floor here than potential upside. A draft pick can provide the best-case scenario.

Frank Stein
Admin
Free agent

A draft pick will not be ready to start day one … Garcia is also a rookie for all practical purposes.
I agree with Mike Reiss, they should have ponied up a couple M more for a longer deal with Solder.

Frank Stein
Admin
Free agent

He’s signing for the backup money not starter money… I don’t know who are in Dallas OL but looks like a depth signing

hugowasmyhomeboy
Member
Free agent

If he signed here, barring a draft pick, he’d be competing against Matt Tobin, Andrew Jelks, and Cole Croston. I don’t think playing time was an impediment to coming back.

Frank Stein
Admin

and Waddle .. .

I was talking about Dallas …
Not sure what Pats offered if they offered anything at all …

Neil X
Member
Free agent

There has been talk that Dallas will move La’el Collins to guard so that Flemming can play right tackle. We’ll see if it happens.

jdlboot14
Member
Free agent

I’m okay with Pats moving on with LT, and Waddle is a decent starter while either Garcia or draft pick gets into full-time shape by mid-season.

dp73
Member
Free agent

Waddle has played more RT then LT. No, I don’t think Waddle has the talent to play LT for 16 games and help this team.

I think the Patriots need to draft a LT who has the ability to start at some point during the season.

These guys have a chance to be that guy.

Mike McGlinchey, Notre Dame- May have to trade up to get him
Connor Williams, Texas
Kolton Miller, UCLA

Cowboys OT Cameron Fleming has signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Cowboys today, per source. At worst, he’s an upgrade for the Cowboys at swing tackle. At best, he could end up starting depending on whether Dallas decides to move RT La’el Collins back inside to LG.-Brandon George

I’ve got the Sunday Globe here, and Solder’s ad really is a nice gesture. The Globe didn’t do them any favors with design, though. The font is a pale gray. On a white background, it’s quite difficult to read. But still, it’s super cool personal statement from the Solder family.

I can’t remember many instances where a player did this, pretty classy of them. Considering the BS that Solder’s wife got on Twitter about their kid.

i’m liking this kid ILB LEIGHTON VANDER ESCH: STRENGTHS Big, long and athletic. Has history of achievement with dominant performances and state titles in two sports in high school. Former basketball standout with fluid hips and smooth movement around the field. Almost no delay in his change of direction. Has agility and quick-twitch for sudden lateral bursts in his slides to close out slashers. Triggers with compact burst to the ball. Works under climbing blockers to stay clean. Easy sideline-to-sideline range as tackler. Has athletic ability to recover and tackle despite over pursuit. Widens frame and opens arms to welcome… Read more »

BOTTOM LINE Vander Esch is a loose-hipped, instinctive linebacker who played in 2017 like he had a GPS tracker on the football. His production totals against both the run and pass are rare for being a first-year starter and with a frame that is primed for more muscle, his NFL ceiling is high. Vander Esch might benefit from a reduced role his rookie season while he improves his play strength and becomes more skilled at taking on blocks. He’s an every-down linebacker with very good starting potential and the talent to fill up a stat sheet.

Most mocks I’ve read had him going to Pittsburgh.

Neil X
Member
Free agent

Yeah, I was talking him up last week, wondering if BB would package pick #31 and a late 3rd or early 4th rounder to move up to #27, ahead of Pitt. (That’s what Jimmy Johnson’s value chart says it should take to move from 31 to 27.)

From Reiss:

For Patriots fans curious about Belichick’s commitment for 2018, his update had to be reassuring — albeit short on specifics — when it came to Malcolm Butler not playing on defense in Super Bowl LII, tight end Rob Gronkowski’s future, quarterback Tom Brady’s mindset, and the health status of 2017 third-round draft picks Derek Rivers and Antonio Garcia.
