The New England Patriots have signed free agent offensive tackle Will Svitek.
Svitek is a seven-year veteran who spent three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and the past four with the Atlanta Falcons. He was on injured reserve all last year with an arm injury.
Svitek has played in 61 games with 16 starts since being drafted by the Chiefs in the sixth round in 2005 out of Stanford. Kansas City released him at the end of training camp in 2008. He was out of the NFL that year, then signed with Atlanta on Feb. 12, 2009.

If it’s one thing Patriots fans have
been shouting at their radios, TV’s and computers while watching
free agency coverage it’s “get some defense, Bill!” And
finally Bill did just that. But not before he challenged the trust
people had in his decisions. Bellicheck, who has been worshipped in
New England for over ten years, finally was challenged by Patriots
At the NFL annual meeting in Phoenix, 30 of the 32 NFL head coaches got together to pose for this nice 2013 class photo. The two missing coaches?
The Patriots have signed offensive tackle Will Svitek to a deal, the terms of the deal are not yet known. Svitek was a sixth round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2005 out of Stanford where he played on the defensive side of the ball, but was converted to offense when he joined the Chiefs. Svitek was signed by the Atlanta Falcons in 2009 and spent last season on injured reserve...
WES IS MORE
Patriots owner Robert Kraft, still smarting over Wes Welker's departure to Denver, stated that the team made a better financial offer to keep the receiver.
2013 could be a big year for Patriots running back Shane Vereen reports ESPN Boston's Field Yates.Fantasy Spin:With Danny Woodhead out of the equation (he signed a two-year deal with the Chargers on Friday), Vereen will move up to second on New England's running back depth chart.

Fresh faces are heading to the New England Patriots wide receiver core as Wes Welker gets used to the thin air in Denver and Brandon Lloyd tests the cold free market. The Pats and Tom Brady will have to get used to new players like Danny Amendola, Donald Jones and Emmanuel Sanders.

Like many NFL teams, the Patriots have been busy since free agency opened last Tuesday.
Their most talked-about acquisition is surely slot receiver Danny Amendola, who was brought basically to replace Wes Welker just hours after news surfaced that Welker had signed a two-year deal with Denver.
But the Pats’ moves didn’t stop there. New England soothed fans’ disappointment over...

Now before I do this I would like to point out that Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game. He has consistently led the New England Patriots [...]
Or how to first pump.
It's kind of funny that he says, "Do it right at the other team!" because that's basically what the Jets have been complaining about for years. They say Brady does that everytime they score a touchdown, taunting them.
In their defense, that probably would get annoying when the Pats are scoring like six times every game.

Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the winning-est coach and quarterback tandem in NFL history, so calling them the best ever wouldn’t be much too much of a stretch. And that’s just what Robert Kraft did.
Kraft, who along with Belichick is out at the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Ariz., this week, joined NBC Sports Pro Football Talk crew on Tuesday and let his feelings be known...

It would be poetic justice if the New England Patriots could sway defensive end Elvis Dumervil to play in Foxboro.
The Denver Broncos were able to sign longtime Patriots receiver Wes Welker with the old strategy of double dipping, getting a great receiver while hurting a conference foe.
Years from now, when your grandchildren’s grandchildren dig up this odd “2013 NFL Head Coach Class Photo,” they’ll wonder where the “Gate Guys” were hiding — as in Bill Belichick of Spygate and Sean Payton of Bountygate.
OK, so Patriots fans’ great-great-great grandchildren will likely know of Belichick for much more than the “S word,” but you get the point....
New England new england patriots owner Robert Kraft was unusually revealing Monday in lamenting receiver Wes Welker's defection to the Denver Broncos, saying the team wanted the receiver back and placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of Welker's agents., http://juicedsportsblog.com/sports-news/news/pats-owner-blames-agents-for-welkers-exit
