Kind of similar to when they signed Rodney Harrison. Wilson can still be a solid player in the right role, i think the Pats are a good fit for him. Id guess he probably stands a decent change of getting a ring.


Harrison was an ANIMAL for New England, and wasn't this old when they signed him...

Remember this play in the 2003 playoffs?

Knocked out a 325 Pro-Bowl LT to tackle Eddie George.

Edit:
At 5:33.

Harrison was 31 when he signed here.

Good signing though. Need some vet leadership in DBs.

I agree it is a good signing. I just don't expect him to have anywhere near the impact that Harrison had.

Good move for NE and a definite upgrade over the bums they had last year.

That is an understatement.

Not expecting some All-Pro play out of him (although it would be nice lol) but just a solid season somewhere right below his career averages would still be an upgrade over what the Pats trotted out there last season.

Seriously, though, what's wrong with Kerry Rhodes that nobody's snapped him up yet?

Perhaps he wants more than what the market will give him.

It's hard to judge any of our defenders last year. They were depressed and exhausted from the offense's incompetence.

As a player? not a lot.

As a person? plenty.

Good signing for the Patriots.

They should be able to bring out the most of his abilities, and bring a sort of late career revival!

Good luck Adrian!
