Neither one would have happened if he wouldn't have at least initiated some moves.
My guess, they made a call to NE probably around the time the Colts were gonna be on the clock and the Pats said no (initially). Makes me wonder who came off the board the the Pats were waiting to get that now wasn't on the board?
I had their Team needs as WR, DT, CB, WR, RT, DE, FS, OG, OLB going into FA, then they signed WR Danny Amendola, SS Adrian Wilson, resigned CB Kyle Arrington, CB Aqib Talib and OT Sebastian Vollmer.
Datone Jones to the PUCKERS perhaps?
