So y'all's Super Bowl rings have 283 diamonds? That's beyond amazing.

Doubt he gets a ton of playing time since he's too slow to cover anyone. Could be useful in obvious run situation tho.

Almost every Patriot defender is a role player thought, minus the few studs like Hightower. I think this is a really valuable addition that will help in the run defense and a good rotational player with experience that we can keep fresh throughout the year subbing in other guys. Strong move IMO

A fairly regular BB move. He likes having smart veteran LBs around. Jets fans say Harris is done, but as a cheap move to get a mentor for young players it makes a good deal of sense.

Exactly my thoughts. If he can clog running lanes on 1st down, and help coach up Roberts and Langi, he's easily worth 3m/yr. Would love to see him win a ring as well, lots of respect for him after seeing him play over the years.

EDIT: Even better

New Patriot LB David Harris got a two-year, $5 million deal. Up to $1.75 million in incentives. $1.25 million guaranteed.

I love the move. Adds veteran leadership and depth at a area where it was really needed.

This team is stupid stacked.

For real guys, what's the plan with Jimmy G? I'm sure the Pats have one, but I can't figure it out. The only option to keep him after next year will be to tag him. He's not signing long term unless the Pats are pushing Tom Brady out the door. But a super bowl favorite tying up $22M on a player who isn't likely to contribute to the title that year, doesn't make sense. And that likely leads to the same scenario for 2019 with his value further declining. So, tagging him and then trading him right away, has to be the only plausible outcome right?

And if that's the answer, it would have been more profitable to trade a younger, cheaper Garoppolo, for rookie draft picks who would help sooner in this Brady super bowl window.

What am I missing?

I think they genuinely see a possibility of him playing here after Brady is gone. The roster, outside of Brady, is pretty deep and very young. If Brady wins another SB and rides off into the sunset, or (touch wood) he breaks his leg in the preseason, then JG is there to ensure a smooth transition.

So do you think that could happen as soon as next year? Or do you think they are willing to tag him for a couple years despite being a backup?

I honestly don't know. It will all depend on how this year goes.

I think this has been BB's mindset the whole time on this situation. Obviously just speculation on my part, but I truly think he believes he just doesn't have the information he feels he needs to make a decision about Jimmy G until after this season.

Ive also heard another theory: it's been Brady's plan to retire after next year all along. Brady keeps saying he wants to play another 5 years to hide the fact. He doesn't want the distraction for him or the team. Again that's just a theory floating around. Theres a few things that don't make sense with that theory but I guess it's marginally plausible.

Reiss is indicating Gillislee could be in for an LGB type of season with a lot of goal-line work. I am hoping the Patriots actually use Rex Burkhead too though. I really want to see him get more work.
