After spending the last few years north of the border, Jason Vega is coming home. The Boston Globe reports that the Patriots have agreed to terms with the linebacker/defensive end, who is coming off two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League.

Should the Patriots go after Darrelle Revis?

Could the Patriots make a move for Darrelle Revis? After reports that the New York Jets are open to trading super-stud cornerback Darrelle Revis surfaced Wednesday night, I began to think, “Is it fathomable to think Darrelle Revis could end up in a Patriots uniform come September?” Of course, it would be tough to see the Jets trade their best player to their hated in-division...

New England Patriots head north of the border to fill roster

The New England Patriots have headed north of the border to add two players to their roster. Last week, New England added intriguing prospect Armond Armstead.

The defensive end suffered a heart attack as a member of the USC Trojans prior to the 2011 season, and sat out the year. Teams passed...
