Relieving to know Blount won't be back. Gillislee is a solid timeshare guy. He's really good with 10-15 carries a game. He was also the preferred GL back over McCoy in Buffalo and I'd make a bet to say his success rate was be pretty good in that area. I think that's what his role ends up becoming in New England.

Gillislee has great vision and great feet imo. Probably why he was GL

Via Ian Rapoport:

#Patriots gave RB James White a 3-year extension worth $12M base, source said. $4.69M guaranteed. $15M is the max. Was to make $690K in 17.


Decent chunk of money for White. Glad to see him get paid and hope he improves his running game.

But honestly, even if his running doesn't improve, f he can somehow keep up his passing game he'll be well worth the contract.

Bills didn't match. Gillislee is a Patriot.

What an off-season.

The ultimate in paying for potential future performance vs. paying for past performance. Looks like Gilleslie will make almost as much as AP.

Gillislee is cool and all but I"m not sure I get the hype.

He's a slasher with great vision but, can't break tackles and his only strength in the open field is his long distance speed.

Belichick tendering Blount is classic Belichick. Laughing Plays chess while the whole league plays checkers.

So now they're guaranteed a pick if (when) he walks.
