Gresh and Mike Flynn, the former NFL offensive lineman filling in for Zo Wednesday, discussed the possibility of the Patriots adding Giants DE Osi Umenyiora.

He would cost a second-round draft pick, and New England is reportedly interested at that price.

Would he be worth acquiring, considering the the salary he will command?

The guys also get into how Umenyiora would potentially fit into the Patriots’ defensive scheme, and also lay out the differences between a 4-3 and 3-4 base defense.

With players like Albert Haynesworth now in the fold, how will the Patriots walk the line between accommodating a player’s skills and changing their game to fit the overall scheme?
