The Patriots announced that they have hired veteran NFL personnel man Floyd Reese as a senior football advisor today,

Reese, who has been working as an analyst for ESPN, was formerly the general manager of the Tennessee Titans. According to the Patriots, Reese be involved with various football-related assignments, including contracts.

In addition to the hiring of Reese, the Patriots announced that Nick Caserio, as director of player personnel, will manage the daily operations of the personnel department, continuing to work closely with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on all personnel matters.

These moves reshape the Patriots' personnel department after vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli was hired as Kansas City Chiefs general manager.

Reese seems to be a pretty smart guy. From listening to him talk on ESPN, he really seems to be one of the few people on there with any clue at all. Good for him.

I don't why he was fired in the first place? He's actually a smart guy and he knows what he's doing.

the only problem with Resse is his cap management.

He's also the guy that caused the Tennessee Titans to go through a player purge because he mishandled the cap so poorly. The years we lost Derrick Mason, Steve McNair, Tank Williams, Eddie George, Samari Rolle, Andre Dyson, and countless others was because he thought it would be smart to keep restructuring contracts and it came back to bite us. He's a smart guy though, but I prefer Reinfeldt.

Good pick up for the Pats. Floyd is a smart man who knows what hes doing. He can hire someone to help him with cap issues if that really is a problem with him.

Hah, epic fail. The guy put us through cap hell and drafted a roster of busts. Have fun Pats fans.

Then again, the hoodie could probably whip him into shape Laughing

I'm not too sure what to think. Are we hiring him with the intention of promoting him to GM in time, or strictly for the role he's been assigned? We haven't named a full time general manager, and it just seems like odd timing to hire a former general manager only a couple weeks after ours left for KC.

We need a good draft. I'm not too sure Reese can provide that.

It can't hurt to add him as a 'senior football advisor'. I mean, Belichick still has total control so it's not like he's going to be the GM.

Reese was responsible for acquiring 16 of 22 starters on the 2008 Titans, including 9 of 11 on defense. This was the team with the most wins during the regular season, and proclaimed to be the best in the NFL by many before their loss. Draft busts happen, you can mock him all you want, but the fact is your team wouldn't be where you are without him.
