3. Help The Interior 

The Patriots won the Super Bowl in spite of some weakness along the interior of their offensive and defensive lines. Bryan Stork is a keeper, but I’m not sold on either Dan Connolly or Ryan Wendell, and New England should work hard to try and upgrade the interior this offseason.

  • Tom Brady has a plethora of weapons to work with, but if he is continually pressured up the middle, he can’t get the ball to his play-makers. Yes, they did a number on the vaunted Seahawks’ defense, but halfway through the third quarter, it was obvious the Patriots’ lack of talent in the middle were hurting their chances offensively.

    On the other side of the ball, the Pats could use some help along the defensive line. Vince Wilfork, Sealver Siliga, and Alan Branch are big boys, but Wilfork is getting up there in age, and Branch is a free agent. The best defense you can play against Tom Brady is a time consuming offense, and another big, versatile body on defense would really help this team get back to the top.
