    Bears DT Akiem Hicks is a guy I'm curious to see if he gets cut for cap space. Some articles on the upcoming decision they have:

    I'd definitely be hopeful of NE making a run at him were he to be released. He spent a year here in 2015 and here's his reflection on that: https://nesn.com/2018/10/akiem-hicks...ill-belichick/

    As I recall, BB actually liked him a lot and was willing to match what he got in CHI. Deciding factor for Hicks was that CHI was going to let him play a full snap count while BB said he wanted to stick with rotating DTs to keep them fresher. So Hicks wanted the extra playing time to grow as a player.

    Hicks by all accounts was a strong leader in CHI. There's been lots of chatter on "the patriot way" and all that. I think bringing back a guy who has positive things to say about it and good individual leadership qualities would be a god culture get. Obviously he could go the ring chaser route so NE would have to pay up to make it worth his while.

    Starting to think all this "they will be aggressive" talk is just that...talk.
