Free Agent Signings: Darrelle Revis (CB), Brandon Browner (CB), Brandon LaFell (WR), Julian Edleman (WR), Patrick Chung (S), and Vince Wilfork (DT).
Darrelle Revis was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New England Patriots signed him since CB Aquib Talib signed a 6 year deal with the Denver Broncos. Revis is arguably the best cornerback in the game. So this should help the Patriots’ secondary that has had some problems the past couple years. The Patriots also signed CB Brandon Browner who was with Seattle last year. He has been known to have some attitude issues, but if he can straighten out his attitude he should help the Patriots’ secondary a lot.
The Patriots signed former Carolina Panther WR Brandon LaFell. He should be another huge weapon for Tom Brady and the rest of the Patriots’ offense. They also resigned WR Julian Edleman, who was Brady’s favorite target to throw to last year. With him, LaFell, Ammendola, and the two young wide receivers, Dobson and Thompkins, the Patriots’ offense should definitely have a better passing game this year than they did last year.
The last free agent signing that I thought was the most important was the resigning of DT Vince Wilfork. The Patriots had one of the worst defenses against the run last year. Part of it because Wilfork was injured for the majority of the season. He should be a huge factor in stopping the run up the middle for New England’s defense this year.
