    Why haven't we seen more FA signings from the Patriots?

    Their usually somewhat busy this time of yr from trades/FA signings and so far they've been quiet.
    Are they just waiting for the draft? Or is everyone just asking for a ridiculous amount of money?

    They want the compensation draft picks.

    The rich get richer.

    Aren't you a Patriots fan?

    I don't recall them being busy on the first day of free agent, except two years ago when they signed Stephon Gilmore.

    As it stands they're set to receive a haul of compensatory picks next year so I'd be surprised if they handed out big free agent contracts this year.

    I am. I just thought with everyone else signing guys left and right they'd be more busy. But you do make a lot
    of sense about the compensatory picks thing.

    Patriots have rarely been involved with the first wave of FAs where stupid money gets handed out

    Unless there is a Stephon Gillmore type of FA, meaning someone who is a strong fit? I don't think the Pats need to be handing out lofty contracts. It's crazy how a Funchess could get a deal worth up to $13 mill. With the $ many teams dole out for big names, like Flowers? The Pats are doing what they do best, which is get value on the dollar. Belichek has always been about getting rid of guys too early rather than too late.

    Any Patriots fan would know that they never sign FAs like that.
    First 4 years:
    Brown - 54 GP, 27 GS, 261 catches (63.3%) for 3,561 yds (8.6 AVG), 15 TD
    Landry - 64 GP, 57 GS, 400 catches (70.2%) for 4,038 yds (10.1 AVG), 22 TD

    Huh. Wonder why Landry is getting paid so much...

    I'm just surprised there hasn't been more talks or trades coming from this team.

    They're too smart to piss away the kind of contracts that the first days of FA brings. Some early 30s vet who still has a lot left in the tank will give them a discount soon enough for a ring.

    Because they already have probably players on the practice squad thatll xome in and somehow become elite and lead them back to the superbowl. Every year they lose great players n we think their run is over but some next schmuk comes in and dominates.

    After Ninkovich left and Edelman got suspended, I thought they'd suck this year but of course Trey Flowers emerges and Brady manages just fine.

    Only the sports site that's also a 4-letter word would watch a team lose 2 starters and sign nobody....and refer to them as one of FA's winners. Not losers? fine....but winners? smh
