They just re-signed Arrington to a fairly pricey (for a non-starter) deal. They're not going to cut him or eliminate his snaps by giving Dennard the nickel/slot spot.

Another veteran starting CB isn't going to happen unless Dennard is in prison.


He can be the Dime/extra DB in packages and I'd be fine with that. The less snaps he sees, the better.


So the 6th DB is either going to be last year's 2nd round pick or a guy they just re-signed to a $16M contract?

Don't think so.

It's obvious by the contract they just gave Arrington that they like him a lot more than you do and they are planning on using him a fair bit. The #4 CB on the Pats doesn't get much playing time outside of injuries. When they run dime, they most frequently use 3 CB and 3 S. It makes no sense to add another (presumed) high end veteran CB unless Dennard is going to miss time with his legal issues.


Depending on your argument, Ras-I Dowling is either a 2nd Round Pick with potential, or someone who cannot be depended on based on injury history.

Which one do we believe?


I don't know what 'we' believe, but I would be very surprised if the Pats weren't committed to Tavon Wilson -at least headed into camp.

I didn't mention Dowling because the team -historically- hasn't been overally committed to guys in their 3rd camp.


I thought we were talking about CB's Embarassed

They might have the fastest group of WRs in the NFL.

I'm not a big Heyward-Bey fan, but their receiving corps (including TE's) is pretty good. It's pretty amazing how quickly they've totally rebuilt their skill positions on offense (minus Wayne who has obviously been there the whole time)

Started well early, had a pick-six on Ben Roethlisberger on week 1 to end the game but then dealt with injuries and once he was healthy he was passed in the depth chart by Chris Harris and Tony Carter.

Probably because you want them to sign crappy players like DHB.
