Expect the Patriots to give Devin McCourty an extension this offseason

With free agency moves abating a bit as teams set their sights towards the draft, it is also time to start thinking about extensions for next year. Of the Patriots set to become free agents next year (which includes such notables as Matthew Slater, Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley), the one guy who the Pats are most likely to approach is Devin McCourty. First, there's McCourty...

Reloading the Musket - Part 3: Patriots' return to balance dependent on three-down back

So, what can we take from the fact that for the second year in a row, the New England Patriots have let a productive running back escape their system in free agency - and for very affordable money.It raises questions for sure, not the least important of which is why Gillette Stadium seems to be turning into a clearing house for quality running backs - and also taking into account...

The New England Patriots have tough choices to make at running back

The New England Patriots approach the NFL Draft next month with obvious needs for depth on defense at linebacker, the defensive line, defensive end, and safety. On offense, the team needs a future quarterback, a tight end, possibly another impact wide receiver, and interior offensive line help. What gets overlooked in discussions about the upcoming NFL Draft is the running back position...

Chris Johnson Unlikely To Sign With Patriots Because Of High Price Tag

The New England Patriots need to bolster their stable of running backs, and Chris Johnson just hit the open market. Johnson fits what the Patriots need, since he can contribute as a receiver out of the backfield, but the three-time Pro Bowl selection might be too expensive for what the Patriots need, even after a down season in 2013. The Patriots already have two starting-caliber...

Report: Michael Bush visiting with Patriots

With the Patriots losing LeGarrette Blount to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, there's a bit of a void to fill at the running back position behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen. Perhaps the Patriots are close to filling it. NFL Network reports that former Bears running back Michael Bush is set to visit the Pats. Bush, a six-year NFL veteran, is coming off the quietest year...

Humble Pie. Patriots 34, 49ers 41

With the Patriots down 31-3 just minutes into the third quarter, I couldn't help but think that this was exactly the way Houston fans must have felt six nights earlier.  I also felt just slightly guilty for all the gloating I did on Thanksgiving night in MetLift Stadium as the Patriots piled on the Jets 35-3 at halftime.  Ok, I'm lying about the second statement, but the...

Patriots' offensive backfield back to pre-Blount state

BY NICK ST. DENISLeGarrette Blount joined the New England Patriots last offseason basically as a bonus pair of legs, as Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen were entrenched as the team's 1a-1b pairing at tailback.But an early injury to Vereen and fumbling issues with Ridley opened the door for Blount to contribute, and Blount came through. He went on to amass 772 yards and seven touchdowns...

New England Patriots: 5 Draft Sleepers To Know, Offense

I’m a hipster. Sigur Ros is blaring out of my retro stereo. I just finished ranting about how good Ridley Scott was before he went all mainstream and started exploiting the zeitgeist. In my lifetime, I’ve worn glasses for decoration and not to help my eyesight. I’m actually the worst. And this all stretches to the NFL Draft too. The main tenet of being a hipster is you pride...

Should the Pats keep Blount, Ridley, and Vereen?

The New England Patriots are coming off a season in which the team finished in the top ten in the NFL in rushing yards during the regular season, building off of a solid 2012 season that saw running back Stevan Ridley break out as a potential star at running back. The Patriots in 2012 rushed for an average of 136.5 yards per game. In 2013 the Patriots rushed for only 129.1 yards...

Dynasty Fantasy Football Debate: DeMarco Murray vs Shane Vereen

If someone were to make a film or write a book about the 2013 fantasy football season, they would probably title it “The Fall of the Running Back” due to the overall disappointing production from the position across the league.  Whether it can blamed on injuries (David Wilson and Doug Martin, for example) or just general ineffectiveness (Trent Richardson and Lamar Miller, for...

Like the rest of Boston in 2013, the New England Patriots just kept fighting back

During the 2013 regular season for the New England Patriots, the team lost four games. During each of the four games, the New England Patriots were throwing into the end-zone at the end of regulation to either tie or win the game. A couple of those games, they really had little business being in the game because of how they played during most of the game, but there they were, trying...

Patriots RB Shane Vereen Likely Out For Week 17

Mike Reiss, probably the best beat writer for the New England Patriots, is speculating that Shane Vereen will miss week 17 as a precaution. The Patriots are already in the playoffs and if this was a must-win type of game, Vereen would likely suit up. But to be safe, Reiss thinks New England will make him inactive. This could mean more snaps for Stevan Ridley or possibly Brandon Bolden...
