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?Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
That HUGE run on OL this year did us 2 huge favors.
1) it pushed some great talent at other positions right into our laps which gave us the ability to get 2 great players without moving up and another one by trading, up.
2) it is going to decrease the ultimate value for Kalil when he comes up for his next contract because there will be a whole class of equal talent and value players right behind him so the demand will be reduced from where I projected it would be last year.

Performance takes a step back in zone coverage, struggles to pass off and close on receivers entering or leaving his area.Just don't ask him to play in zone, because Rhodes shows tight movements when forced to pass receivers to a separate area. His game is somewhat scheme-dependent.
Proof that our scheme is evolving to a more press coverage that I wanted for years.
