Found March 09, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
With this year’s wide receiver free agent class being absolutely stacked, the Patriots could already be the front-runner for one of the top options. Brandon Lloyd has played 10 NFL seasons, and one of them stands above all the others. As a member of the 2010 Broncos under Josh McDaniels, Lloyd caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns — all career highs.

Curran. “For any receiver to be considered to come in and play on the New England Patriots is gonna be excited just because of the history of success. “Winning is definitely the highest pri...

Poppinga lashes out at Williams

Gregg Williams is technically St. Louis Rams linebacker Brady Poppinga's defensive coordinator for at least a few more days. This didn't keep Poppinga from ripping Williams for orchestrating a bounty program while with the New Orleans Saints. Poppinga feels that strongly about a system the seven-year NFL veteran described with such terms as "degrading," "...

How do the Patriots address defense in the draft?

Another year completed, and as we did last off-season, we’re all wondering what GM Bill Belichick will do to fix his defense and take some pressure off Tom Brady and the offense.  The offense had to carry the team more last year and tried to do it not so quickly.  With the defense spending more time on the field last season (31:27 minutes – 27th) than the previous (31:02...
