The Patriots pinpointed several needs in free agency and seemed to address most of them. They missed out on a couple of good players, and a few other solid players as well. All in all, it was a good free agency to lead up to the draft.DAY 1:DT Juan Rodas
This player definitely makes the d-line stronger. He now sits on a d-line that features Ray Hamilton and Richard Bishop. He will be the second best d-line man on the team, right behind Hamilton. Rodas used to play for the Bills, and he did not show us much stats as he started less than half of the games for the Bills. Now as a starter, let us see what this 25 year old can do.DAY 2:
The Patriots did not sign anyone missing out on a player that would have helped a lot in LDE Bobby RiordanDAY 3:
For the second day in a row, the Patriots miss out on a player that would have helped a decent secondary. We will be seeing Mason Dantzler's
services twice a year against Buffalo.DAY 4:QB Kurt Diedrich
This is not a big signing. Diedrich will be replacing Gibson who will be leaving in free agency this year. He is young, and we should see him play this preseasonFS Albert Christensen
With both Robert Amaral and George Davis leaving, Albert will help fill the void they will leave. He will be the new starter in front of Bob Howard. He is young and he is one of the fastest players on the field. Instead of Dantzler, this is who we get.
So the Patriots filled holes and upgraded positions, and we will see what the Patriots do come draft time.
