Looked it up:

Quote:
Basically, when a player is signed to “reserve/futures” contracts means they are being signed for the upcoming season even though that season does not officially begin until the official start of the league’s new year as outlined by the NFL. Only players who were not on any NFL team’s active roster when the previous season ended are eligible for these types of contracts. If they were under contract, then they would remain so until the league’s new year starts. Players who were on practice squads at the end of the season are eligible to sign with any team. Hence the reason that you see many practice squad players being signed by their current team for the upcoming year to a reserve/futures contract. That way the team can continue to work with a player they’re familiar with and hopefully get them ready for an eventual roster spot on game day.

Not good enough, need someone better, bigger, faster, stronger.

In all seriousness this is quite a solid signing and a step in improving our interior pass rush.

I assume you're talking about Armstead. I agree. Another example of the Pats working while others are thinking about the SB. At the very least, he represents the 3rd round pick we don't have this year.

Add in Ballard and Demps and BB is off to a great start in this draft.

Quote:
When former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison assesses areas in which the team needs help, he highlighted his former position.

“I think they need an enforcer at the safety position,” Harrison said on Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live. “The tight ends and wide receivers running across the middle, they’re not afraid of getting hit. They need someone like a [Bernard] Pollard to really make a statement, set the tone, and really make them fear coming across the middle. They don’t have that.”

The Patriots finished the season with Devin McCourty and Steve Gregory at safety. They also had 2011 second-round draft choice Tavon Wilson and four-year veteran Patrick Chung at the position, with rookie Nate Ebner as the No. 5 option.

Of the group, Chung is the hardest hitter, but he fell out of favor with the coaching staff in the second half of the season. He played just two snaps in the AFC Championship Game, as part of the goal-line defense.

The lack of an enforcer at safety highlighted why Harrison felt the Patriots lost.

An enforcer would be nice but we have more pressing needs, imo.
It's not surprising to me that a former great S sees S as the problem. Reminds me of this..."When your only tool is a hammer, you see every problem as a nail."

I think rodney is right tho. Safety problems that we're having makes cb problems much worse. And many times this season we got heavily abused down the middle because our safeties simply arent good enough. Stud safety would help a lot.

Agreed with this, also agreed with Chev. Coverage issues have been a huge problem with the S position, something that might not even make a whole lot of sense because they have generally practiced against the best TE duo in the league. McCourty looks like a good fit at S, so they found some good there but to me, the Gregory/Chung/Wilson revolving door has just been bizarre.

Perhaps also the abysmal play at S this year has an effect on the way the DBs play and think. For example, McCourty's sophomore slump has widely been attributed to the horrible play at safety that year--clearly, he was not confident with the help at S so maybe he placed an added pressure on himself to perform and lock down his man. And then there's the thing where they think they have help at S but they really don't. So perhaps it is also discipline that needs to be practiced.

I'm not too worried about not having a "hard hitting" safety, but rather a good, solid, coverage safety that will surely break up those +20 yard receptions.

Chung isn't the answer since he began to follow the path of Meriweather. Gregory has been inconsistent. He started pretty well then had a span of 4-5 games of playing poorly then had another 2-3 games of playing well. In the AFCCG, he played poss his worst game of the year. Just keep in mind Tavon Wilson played pretty well in the beginning of the year but didn't have the experience to be paired up with Gregory. McCourty did so Wilson was the odd man out. Hopefully Wilson's experience this year helps him get on the field more. At 6', 210, he's comparable in size to Chung & has shown he is capable of giving a good hit. I'm not as worried about the S position as I am the CB position. Right now we have Dennard & Arrington (as the nickel guy). Most would agree Arrington isn't an answer at outside CB. We need to sign Talib or someone similar. It's possible that Talib has played himself into a big contract from another team.

CB has to be addressed.

Getting rid of Fells will be the first thing they do. Maybe they see Hernandez transitioning into a receiver role full time, can Ballard block? Maybe they use Ballard to block, he's certainly got the build for it at 6'6"/275 (makes him same height but 5 lbs heavier than Gronk!)

Hoomanawanui has proven himself to be a useful tool, and a decent blocker, I think that Hooman could become a solid blocker and has shown that he can catch balls too when called upon, also showed an ability to play lead blocking FB if desired.

Gonna be an interesting season
