Kyle Arrington has a good year in 2011, then followed up with an absolutely miserable one in 2012. For whatever reason, the Patriots seemed to have blanked out this past season and are deadset on making sure the former undrafted rookie doesn't his the open market. Boston Herald: The Patriots will meet with Kyle Arrington's representation this week at the combine to discuss a new contract, according to sources. Arrington is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent March 12, so this is a sign the Patriots don't want to let him hit the open market. At least Arrington will probably come dirt cheap, I really doubt that there will be much of a market for him. Still, the Alfonzo Dennard verdict probably has the team going in full gear trying to at least ensure they have bodies in their secondary. Arrington began 2012 as a starter alongside Devin McCourty. Neither player had much success but Arrington specifically. He continually got beat on deep balls and it always seemed...

Rob Gronkowski Off Oscars Duty?

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not shy. The man is known almost as much for his over the top, hard-partying personality as he is for his skill on the football field. That's probably why the Rich Eisen Podcast wanted him as its Oscars correspondent on the red carpet this Sunday. The big man would have no trouble approaching anyone. Heck, half the time they...

Is Tavon Wilson good?

Patriot's beat writer Mike Reiss posted today about Tavon Wilson, labeling him a "wild card," and raising some excellent questions about the Patriots safety coming off his rookie season. Based on what we have seen thus far, Wilson's role in future of the secondary is difficult to assess. I posted on PatriotsLife in January and spoke to the playmaking ability...

Chasing The Patriots (by ESPN) Every move the Dolphins make this off-season should be geared toward beating the Patriots.  I think they should pursue athletic tight ends to really attack the Patriots linebackers in coverage. That’s where they’ve been weakest over the past three seasons.

Top 5 free-agent cornerbacks the Patriots could sign

The Patriots have a whole lot of needs this off-season, and one of the most popular to point to is the secondary. Last year, the Patriots defense started out terribly against the pass. Then they traded for Aqib Talib, promoted Alfonzo Dennard to starter, moved Devin McCourty to safety, and vastly improved. Unfortunately we could be looking at yet another complete makeover in the...

Anthony Spencer Would Improve Patriots’ Pass Rush, But Other Defensive Needs Must Take Precedent

Bill Belichick finally addressed the Patriots’ glaring pass rush deficiency in last year’s draft with the selection of defensive end Chandler Jones and linebacker Dont’a Hightower in the first round. Jones (six sacks) and Hightower (four) helped add some pressure off the edge, along with the team’s sack leader Rob Ninkovich (eight), in 2012. Even with the stellar efforts...
