How much do we pay the person or persons you think? Why do you think they will be a colt? Why/How are they reaching free agency? Any other insight?

I would imagine a few of these players will be re signed in March.

Just because they are up for contracts does not mean they will be hitting free agency.

I agree completely, but they aren't signed now just wondering everyone's thought on the questions.

Hard to answer that question.

Once the season get completely over we will find out. I think the GMs are already talking to agents but till a deal is signed we don't know who or where these players will go.

The rumor mill will be rolling. haha

They're best guess and opinionated questions on what you think could happen. I understand how free agency works. I just want to see if anyone has some good theories as of now before anything is set in stone. Let me give you an example:

 

I think Brandon Graham could be a colt next year. He is getting up there in age so he may not resign in Philly and he has a Frank Reich connection. I think he would get around 6 mil or so(this is just an example).

If Clowney makes it to FA...I hope Ballard does what he can.

 

But Dee Ford (who is supposedly hitting FA) has the Ballard connection...and is probably the most likely.

Would love Clowney but I don't see him hitting FA.  I think Flowers has a better chance but I can see Belichick doing a tag and trade.   Clark would be a great fit as well.

Flowers is the only one I think has any chance of making it to market, so that's who I picked.

 

And I doubt he makes it to market...

I think Trey Flowers has a chance to hit FA. Pats usually try to avoid paying for players they haven't invested in a ton. They have shown willingness to let players go and just collect the 3d-4th compensatory that comes with it...

I think they traded Chris Chandler and Jaimie Collins before they had to pay them.  I could see the same happening with Flowers.

I have this gut feeling an edge rusher is making it to FA and were gonna pay. I'm thinking Trey Flowers as well, but then again they may sign him since they haven't traded him yet to get max value. Maybe its just wishful thinking on my end.

Chandler Jones. And they did trade both of them. Collins was a bit of a different case...because he was apparently doing his own thing too much on defense. Still not sure why they traded Jones.

 

If Flowers gets tagged...I hope the Colts stay away. Doubtful those two teams are trading again for a while anyways.

Thanks for the correction.  It was Chandler Jones I was thinking of.  I wonder if the Patriots would want Brissett back as part of a trade for Flowers.  Just thinking out loud.

Brandon Graham is my dark horse. He's getting older, but he is still consistently in the backfield. If we could pair him with Grady Jarrett, oh muh god.

They'll sign DeMarcus Lawrence, Clowney, and Earl Thomas...all of em. Then we'll draft Deebo Samuel, AJ Brown, and DK Metcalf at WR and Jacobs at RB, and Hockenson at TE. All defense FA, and all offense draft. That's. What's. Gonna. Happen. 

 

I love these posts because it keeps the offseason interesting, but the odds are much better of none of those guys listed hitting FA than them hitting the market. They'll most likely aggressively pursue anything that does hit the market, and draft DL early. I'd imagine there will be either an FA WR or one drafted (the brass is more content with in-house WRs than the fanbase), with other most likely positions addressed via draft being CB, S, LB and OL...always OL.

Forget about David Irving.  He missed a few drug tests, apparently.

 

I could possibly see Shane Ray, as an Ebron-type move.  Polian thought he was the next Mathis.  Let Mathis work with him and see what happens.

Lawrence would be who I want but I doubt he hits FA, Ford would be a nice pickup that I could see happening more realistically.

I know Trey Flowers is the most popular on this forum but do you think given that if the Pats are successful on Sunday he'll have won 2 Superbowls and therefore join whatever team will offer him the most money?

None.

 

A couple of them will be re-signed or tagged. The ones that aren’t, Will be more than what Ballard likes to play. I wouldn’t count on any big name edge rushers.

    • Oh, that's what I fear, for sure.  But even if that's the case.... What's the long term solution?  Who starts at QB in whatever city they have to play in in 2030?  Jk.... slightly.... That damage won't be undone soon, or easily.... Surrounding talent won't fix his issues, just raise the floor a game or two.
    • Oh, the players already know that, regardless of who starts jn The present, past, future, they are well aware JB isn't a true #1 leader at the qb going forward.  Stop gap? Sure... If there's an endgame.
    • This list does not fit the narrative you are trying to put forward.  Only 2 would even be close and even they had chances.    Browns and Redskins don't even count; they are dysfunctional franchises who had plenty of chances but couldn’t get out of their own way.   Dolphins, Titans, and Bears all could have had good QBs if not for trying for retreads, sticking with a player too long (Mariota, Tannehill), and/or missing when they had good players available to draft (Ryan, Mahomes, Watson). Also jury still out on Trubisky.   Vikings and Broncos have not had the best luck with QBs lately, but they have also lingered in the mediocre to good record zone a lot which doesn't help them getting a high draft pick for QB . They also got a few good seasons out of retreads which helped them in the short term, but not the long term. Although in the Broncos case I am sure they will take their SB with PM.   I will give you the Jets, they have had some bad luck. When they did have good picks there wasn’t much available; although jury still out on Darnold (also they could have taken Lamar Jackson). Buffalo also had some bad luck for a few years, but they also blew their chance to draft Mahomes (though Allen may still turn into something).   During the last few years all these teams have had periods where they had a player/or players  as good or better than JB and it didn't amount to much other than keeping them from a top draft pick. If you don't have an very good - elite QB you are just playing the lottery hoping for one of those all the stars perfectly aligned runs that rarely happen.
    • Thanks for this.   My favorite part is his tackle at 5:30.  
    • Not a big deal.     Brissett puts fans in an odd position.   He is almost the definition of average.  His QB rating is average.  His yards per game is below average but his INT % is above average.  So I can understand supporters and detractors.
