Time For Belichick to Roll up His Sleeves

Now that the super bowl champs victory is sealed and in the record books it’s time for head coach Bill Belichick to start planning ahead for next seasons roster. First and foremost is to sign Darrelle Rivas. Rivas is the games best cover corner. He’s proably the best corner since Ty Law that the Pats have had in quite some time.Rivas is owed 20 million dollars for the 2015 season. But earlier this week Pats president Johnathan Kraft came out and said they will make every attempt to sign Rivas.

Kraft must formulate some type of contract that is both satisfying to his agent and Kraft. At the same time they can’t be insulting but sensible. It makes sense for the Pats to overpay him and keep him in New England for at least for or five years. A two or three year offer would be a slap in the face.Four or five years makes sense for both Rivas and team owner Robeet Kraft.

Other notable free agents the Pats need to sign are running back Shane Vereen, kicker Stephen Gostowski,offensive lineman Dan Connelly  and running back Stevan Ridley.Out of the group look for Ridley not to be back next year Gostowski is an interesting situation their is a lot of free agent kickers vailable, but Gostowski has one thing in his favor kicking in cold weather and kicking in big games.

Other Pats free agents are Danny Aiken, Chris White, Johnathan Casillias,Silver Sega, Alan Branch, Greg OrtanThese players can be signed for a bargain One player out of this group who made an impact was defensive lineman Alan Branch. Branch played significant amounts of snaps all season long and is just thirty years old. For the right price he could be a steal and a very effective player.

For the Pat’s needs offensive lineman are a priority. In the Beginning of the season the Pats had a sub par offensive line. But as the season went on Belchick rebuilt it bt installing center Brian Stork a 2014 draft pick out of Florida and moved center Ryan Wendell to guard. This was the line that got the Pats to the Super Bowl. With a successful draft coming up in May and some sensible free agent signings after March tenth New England should be a Super Bowl contender for next season.
