The New England Patriots have holes to fill for 2014, patriots.com

There are a lot of big names in NFL free agency this season. They are headlined by the Saints’ Jimmy Graham, but there is talent to be found at most postions. The New England Patriots could use help in a couple of areas, most notably the offensive and defensive line and the secondary.

Unfortunately for Patriots fans the team isn’t known for making big splashes in free agency. That’s not to say they won’t find the appropriate players to fill the right holes through the NFL draft and free agency, but you’re not likely to see the big names being thrown around playing in Foxboro in 2014.

That, however, doesn’t mean that you can’t at least speculate on who you would like to see rocking the floating Elvis head in the coming season. Continue reading Who Should the Patriots Target in Free Agency? »

Aaron Hernandez's former barber, Robby Olivares, could be called as a key witness to testify against Hernandez in the murder case of Odin Lloyd.

According to a report from Fox 25 Boston’s Ted Daniel, Aaron Hernandez’s former barber, Robby Olivares, could be called to testify against his former client and friend.

Two days before Hernandez was arrested, Olivares made a house call to Hernandez’s North Attleboro home. Now that relationship and loyalty is being put to the test as Olivares could become a key witness for the prosecution.

Hernandez has been behind bars since June on a first-degree murder charge in the death of Odin Lloyd. Although the case against Hernandez seemed strong at first, the case has since weakened a bit as the credibility of Carlos Ortiz, one of the prosecution’s key witnesses, was called into question since his story of the night of the murder has changed several times. Prosecutors are now looking to another key testimony to solidify their case against the former Patriot. Continue reading Aaron Hernandez’s Former Barber Could Become Key Witness for Prosecution »

Aqib Talib

With the NFL season ending in disappointment for everyone except the Seattle Seahawks, teams are looking to take advantage of the offseason and restructure their rosters to build a championship caliber team. With the offseason also comes free agency and teams are faced with the difficult challenge of deciding which players are worthy of re-signing and which players to just part ways with.

The New England Patriots have some tough decisions to make this offseason. One of them being whether or not to re-sign cornerback Aqib Talib to a contract he deserves or to add him to the long list of players let go by the team because the Patriots were too cheap to re-sign them (Wes Welker, Adam Vinateri, Richard Seymour, just to name a few). Continue reading Why the Patriots Need to Re-Sign CB Aqib Talib »

In another interesting turn in the Aaron Hernandez saga, his former close associate and right-hand man, Alexander Bradley, was shot in the leg outside a Hartford nightclub Sunday night.

In retaliation, Bradley retrieved a firearm from his car and fired 11 shots into the exterior of the building. Continue reading Former Hernandez Associate Held on $1M Bond »
