It is May.
This is probably what Bill Belichick would say when asked how he feels about the status of the New England Patriots roster. The implication is that regular season games do not start until September, which is very far away. There is a lot of time for team building, which could include trades and free agents. That said, the project is complete. The window in which free agents count against the compensatory levy formula will end on May 7, so New England could make a second incursion into a free agency to fill other holes.
Here are some of the best free agents that could fall into New England, ranked from the least likely to the most likely.
11. Dez Bryant, WR: C & # 39; is a contingent of you (usefully small) who is screaming at your screen: Bryant in New England?! It's not way. The patriots, however, are loading up large and versatile receivers in Josh Gordon, Demaryius Thomas and N & # 39; Keal Harry. Each of them comes with some advantages and some risks. If Bryant took a minimal veteran deal, the patriots might be interested in trying it as a big slot.
10. Mo Wilkerson, DE / DT: The patriots are still looking for versatile defensive linemen who can play both in defense and in defense. Wilkerson's game has declined over the past few years, but is not washed. The Patriots would make him a role player in multiple positions along the defensive line.
