Three free agents the New England Patriots should have spent money on

The New England Patriots had an interesting free agency. While they brought back Devin McCourty, the loss of Darrelle Revis could prove painful. Jabaal Sheard seems to be a nice addition, but was he the best option? Bill Belichick rarely makes big moves during free agency, but could he have done a little more? Here are three free agents the Patriots should have spent money on instead...

The New England Patriots three worst draft selections of the last five years

The New England Patriots are one of the most well run organizations in all of sports, and Bill Belichick is the man to thank. That said, for as great as Belichick is, he’s not perfect. In fact, there seems to be one area in which he just can’t succeed: Belichick cannot draft a cornerback or wide receiver to save his life. I don’t know what the deal is, but every time Belichick...

Houston Texans sign S Rahim Moore

Given that it was a weak safety market, especially after Devin McCourty re-signed with the Patriots, I thought Rahim Moore had a good chance to be overpaid. There was an argument to be made that he was the best safety that hit the open market this off-season. Given that, the Texans deserve credit for landing him on a 3-year, 12 million dollar deal with nothing guaranteed past 2015...

New England Patriots re-sign S Devin McCourty

The Patriots were unable to re-sign Darrelle Revis, but they did well to bring back Devin McCourty before the start of free agency. It was a weak safety market so McCourty easily could have been overpaid, but this deal, which pays him 47.5 million over 5 years with 28.5 million guaranteed, is appropriate for someone of McCourty’s skill set. It’s right in the middle in total money...

To fill the void left by the two corners, the Patriots still have free-agent options: 1. Tramon Williams: The former Packers cornerback has recorded at least one...

Devin McCourty: New England Offered Best Chance To Win With Contract
