The Patriots’ cornerback situation is very much in flux this offseason.
Three of the Patriots’ four primary cornerbacks — Devin McCourty withstanding — are set to become free agents come 4 p.m. on March 12, which means there is some serious work to be done. Aqib Talib has drawn the most headlines of the group, but Kyle Arrington could be equally as important to the future of the secondary.
Fortunately, for the Patriots, Arrington, who has played his entire four-year career in New England, wants to be back with the team next season and into the future, according to Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com.
“I’m such a loyal guy,” Arrington said. “Bill [Belichick] and the Patriots gave me my first opportunity to play regularly. I want to stay; they want to keep me and both sides want to work something out.”
Arrington, 26, has enjoyed much success during his four seasons with the Patriots, including leading the NFL with seven interceptions in 2011. His 2012 didn’t start off quite so well, as his defici

Mary Kay Cabot reports that an NFL source expects to see the Browns pursue a trade for Patriots backup QB Ryan Mallett.
Cabot adds that a separate source believes Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is unwilling to trade Mallett at this point in time.

Wes Welker sees your move, Patriots, and he’s calling your bluff.
While the Patriots and Welker appeared to be close to making an agreement on a new deal in recent days, the situation has suddenly become much more complicated. First came the news that Welker was none too pleased with how the Patriots treated him last season, and that he might be willing to test the free-agent market...

Wes Welker turned in yet another.. er.. ppr studded season. He hauled in a whopping 118 catches for 6 touchdowns. While Julian Edelman was nipping at his heels during the early portion of the season, Welker, in the...
Contract negotiations between Wes Welker and the New England Patriots have gone to opposite sides of the spectrum and everywhere in between in a matter of days. I have ridden the Welker Contract Roller Coaster now for two offseasons in a row, and I have spent hours wondering about his future. I live and think like someone living in the modern Western world, so I think in terms of...
Wes Welker is destined for free agency and Patriots fans wonder if the team can live without the record-setting slot man. The reality is that the Patriots can not only live without Welker, they can thrive without Welker.
The million question is how much of Welker’s success is based of him and how much of it is based off Tom Brady. I don’t care how great of a Wide Receiver you are, it helps having a Hall of Fame quarterback throwing you the ball, but I think people aski underrate Welker’s talent.
He isn’t a perfect fit for every team, but there are several teams I think he would fit in nicely...
It seems there’s only one position on Patriots fans minds right now: wide receiver.
Patriots faithful is agonizing over slot receivers, outside receivers, deep threat receivers, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Danny Amendola and countless other options. Whether Welker is back in a Patriots uniform next year or not, New England will no doubt look to acquire a few outside targets for...
Not really any sudden or surprising news here, but the possibility of free agent WR Danny Amendola becoming a New England Patriot seem more and more likely. So this has been considered almost a gimme for a while now, but with Wes Welker deciding to test the market, Amendola could be a factor in Welker's contract negotiations. Writer Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com says that...
