Zo thinks the Patriots might have missed the boat by not franchising Talib, Andy Gresh disagrees,
What could be most appealing to Tampa Bay is a dance partner willing to take Revis’ $16 million contract. If that’s true, then a third-round pick could get the deal done according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
The Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe joins Toucher and Rich to explain why the Patriots won’t be franchising Aqib Talib this year.
Aqib Talib has given the Patriots their first cover cornerback since Asante Samuel, and perhaps their best secondary player since Rodney Harrison and Ty Law . . . when healthy.
The period to franchise players begins on Monday and the tag for cornerbacks is north of $11 million. Is that the route the Patriots should go?
Don’t let Aqib Talib sign with another team, because this Patriots defense is very close to being elite, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
The Patriots offseason began two weeks and one duckboat parade shorter than what fans had hoped for, so now we look forward to the free agency period and which players will be back with the team.
Monday’s 4 p.m. deadline for NFL teams to place the franchise tag on players came and went without the Patriots using the designation on any player.
For the first time in four years, the Patriots may not be playing tag.
Monday marks the first day that teams around the NFL can place the franchise tag on one player from their rosters. According to one report, the Patriots won’t be using theirs on wide receiver Wes Welker.
