The Patriots have been busy filling holes in the secondary with multiple signings in the last few days. Here’s a quick summary of each player:
My Take: I think it’s important for the Patriots to continue to fill bodies into the secondary, even if the talent isn’t great on paper. Jason Webster has struggled with injury but can be a decent corner if he stays healthy. I don’t know much about Lewis Sanders but I like the signing of Tank Williams. He may not be an every down guy but I always love a guy who’s not afraid to take a chance and light up someone. I don’t think these signings have solved all the problems on defense, but I’m starting to think (along with a lot of other experts) that we’re going to see a lot of Brandon Meriweather at cornerback in the 2008 season.
Ty Law is still out there and I think if the Patriots brought him in and then drafted a cornerback in the early rounds of the draft, the secondary would have a good mixture of veterans and youth to be formidable in the AFC East.
