It won’t be looked at as one of the higher profile free-agent signings of the offseason, but it is one of the most important.

Many expected Ed Reed to be the veteran safety the Patriots would consider, but there’s no reported interest or meeting between the two sides in recent days. In fact, Reed seems poised to sign with the Houston Texans.
New England continues to stay busy and releases another receiver in Brandon Lloyd.
Lloyd was second in receptions with the Patriots last year behind Wes Welker with 74 for 911 yards and four touchdowns. He was due to make $1.9 million in 2013 that would have come with a $4.9 million cap hit.

Patriots sign safety Adrian Wilson
Good move for the Pats to lock up the longtime Cardinal veteran. Of all the moves the Patriots have made in the last few days, this one seems to me like the most effective one. The Patriots struggled all year defending the middle of the field against the pass, and also lacked an intimidator on the back end. Wilson should bring a little of both.
The New England Patriots needed help in the secondary and folks help is on the way in the form of former Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson who inked a three-year deal with the team.
Wilson, 33, was released earlier this month after 12 seasons in Arizona that led to four All-Pro selections and 5 Pro-Bowls. He is large, at 6’3” and 230 lbs he will be a presence in the...

Multiple reports had the Patriots tied to Talib since the Patriots season ended.
New England acquired him last season from the Buccaneers during his...
The Patriots defense - particularly the secondary - struggled mightily to start the 2012 season. The Patriots then made an uncharacteristic trade at the NFL trade deadline, sending a third round pick to the Buccaneers for Aqib Talib. Things started to turn around after that as, under the radar, the Patriots defense turned into one of the better units around the league after that...
Talib is banking on a big year with the Patriots, so he can cash out in free agency next year. Interesting gamble, we will see if it pans out.
Aqib Talib wil return to the Patriots in 2013.
Just after 11:45 this morning, Adam Schefter broke the good news that all Patriots fans wanted to hear. After letting one of their “big three” free agents in Wes Welker get away earlier this week, the team has reached an agreement with cornerback, Aqib Talib, on a one-year deal reportedly worth $5 million.
The news comes less than...
The New England Patriots re-signed free agent cornerback Aqib Talib to a one-year contract on Saturday. Talib came over midseason in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he helped solidify the shaky New England secondary.
He is the third defensive back that New England has signed in the free agency period along with re-signing Kyle Arrington and former Arizona Cardinals...
Keep in mind, this isn't a report. It's speculation on Schefter's part, but Schefter's speculation is always informed. Of course.
RT @var78: Hey mr schefter any news Aqib Talib yet? ... When all is said and done, whenever that is, I believe he returns to New England.
