Interesting take here from Jeff Howe at his new Herald digs. I really see the sky as the limit for this defense with all the talent they’ve stockpiled, but there will he hard decisions to make. Obviously Mayo is part of the core and was given another contract. But after him who are the real building blocks that will also get another deal from the Pats?
There jury is still out on a lot of their young defenders, but after this year we’ll start to see who they want to build around and who they don’t.
