Patriots’ Crowded Secondary Forces Logan Ryan, Kyle Arrington To Safety

FOXBORO, Mass. — Bill Belichick might value versatility more than any professional coach in any sport. The New England Patriots head coach likes wide receivers who can play cornerback, defensive ends who can drop back in coverage, running backs who can split out at wide receiver and defensive backs that can play all over the field. That kind of versatility allows Belichick to put...

El Jefe Speaks - Belichick clears up Patriots' competition at safety...sort of

"When he can keep the action in front of him he has the fluidity to react to the play and is a solid tackler.  Where Arrington got in trouble last season was trying to cover taller receivers on the outside, but had a tendency to lose the receiver if he looked back for the ball - resulting in really bad looking long-gainers or pass interference penalties." - Foxborough...

Kyle Arrington on the All-Bad Contracts Team

Kyle Arrington photo by John Wilcox/Boston HeraldBeginning with the institution of a salary cap, a player’s contract status has become almost as important as his ability on the field. As Patriot's fans, we don’t tend to think of the Patriots as giving out bad contracts very often or, well, ever. The Patriots always seem to have an “out," be it a cheap buyout or a cheap...

New England Patriots neglect “safety-first” approach in 2014

It has been quite the offseason for the New England Patriots’ defensive secondary. Landing Darrelle Revis in free agency was arguably the biggest NFL news in 2014 outside of the Seattle Seahawks’ Super Bowl title. Couple that with the addition of Brandon Browner, and the New England secondary could be the most-improved unit in all of football. Yet it’s not the cornerback position...
