Patriots Looking for a New Contract for Christmas

There are currently 17 players who will be looking for a brand-new contract this Christmas (or offseason as its known in the NFL) on the Patriots’ roster. As usual, the list includes key contributors and some important depth players. G Logan Mankins will once again be a free agent and may get slapped with the franchise tag this time around if a new deal cannot be reached. Joining him in free agency will be his partner on the left side, T Matt Light. Some other notable names include DL Gerard Warren, who has been a steady contributor on the defensive line, RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and CB Kyle Arrington. Kevin Faulk is also on the list, though he may retire considering Danny Woodhead has filled in Faulk’s role quite nicely and was a contract extension through 2012.
