We are all waiting on whether or not Bill Belichick will make a move on cornerback Darrelle Revis, so until then, let’s go over what has happened today not involving Mr. Revis.
The biggest news once again comes from Denver, where defensive end DeMarcus Ware signed a three year, $30 million contract with the Broncos. It seems like they are loading up for Peyton Manning, because their cap situation is going to be in disarray after this season. But as of right now, you could make a legitimate case saying that Denver is the best team in the NFL.
Aqib Talib signed with Denver yesterday, but he gave his opening press conference earlier today, and it sounded like he took a shot at the Patriots. Here is the quote: (via ESPN Boston)
This was after he was asked about his health:
“That was in Tampa, that was the right side. I haven’t had a hip problem since Tampa. The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff, but I haven’t had a hip problem since Tampa. The injury I had was actually a quad injury, it was reported as a hip injury, but that’s how they do things.”
I still respect Talib for what he did for the Pats while he was here, but that kind of seems like a low blow. However he’s gone now, and we should turn our attention to the players currently in Foxboro, and hopefully a couple that we will see in New England very shortly.
Offensive guard Shelley Smith was in Foxboro today for a visit, although nothing has been announced in terms of a contract between the two sides. Interior offensive line help is an area of need for the Pats, so this visit makes sense.

Former Denver linebacker Wesley Woodyard has been in Foxboro for the last two days, and even though there is no deal yet, the visit reportedly went “great”. Woodyard is an excellent coverage linebacker, and he is supposed to make a decision after he meets with Tennessee.
