The Patriots haven’t done much in the opening hours of free agency, so let’s catch up on things other teams have done that may affect the Pats.

Indianapolis re-signed Vontae Davis to a four year, $39 million contract. This gives us another standard that Aqib Talib may hold the Patriots to, given that he is a much better corner that Davis. I don’t know if New England will be willing to pay that much, so Talib might have to take a pay cut.

Cornerback Vontae Davis has agreed to a four-year, $39 million deal, including $20 million guaranteed, with the Indianapolis Colts, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Mike Loyko of nepatriotsdraft.com also gave us some good information, saying that the market for Talib isn’t what his camp was expecting. This helps the Patriots, because he is now more likely to sign back on with New England.

Safety T.J. Ward signed with the Broncos, taking a potential target off of the Pats list. Ward is a hard hitting safety, and he will definitely upgrade Denver’s pathetic secondary.
