Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source for Patriots news and analysis from around the web.
Mike Reiss has some quick analysis on the acquisition of Darrelle Revis. His thoughts on the Patriots changing their philosophy while also protecting with a one year deal is spot on. The Pats usually don’t spend on a high profile free agent like this, but with Denver adding new talent, Bill Belichick had to do something.
Bleacher Report’s James Christensen says what the Pats will do next, after this monster signing of Revis. I’m surprised he didn’t including adding a receiver to the list. Right now, New England’s receiving corps flat out sucks. They need some help in that department. Although I do agree with his point on Vince Wilfork. The Pats need to free up some cap space, and Wilfork’s $11.5 million cap hit is the biggest problem.
