April 23: Tight end Colt Lyerla was cut by the Packers eight months ago, but is fully recovered from a knee injuryand is making a plea to NFL teams to give him a look. He's dealt with off-field issues, but has a high ceiling...

May 13: A second wave of free agency could start now that unrestricted free agents can sign with a new team without affecting the compensatory draft pick formula.

May 13: Defensive lineman Corey Wootton worked out for the Lions, who are currently one player short of the 90-man roster limit.

Wanted us to accumulate some 7th rounders last year and gamble one on Tight end Colt Lyerla and (I think this was 2014) NT Geathers (who went UDFA to Chargers and made the team). Note we ended up with a need in both positions

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

While I think we've got plenty of options at wide receiver, both for depth and development...

I would like to see us bring in another big (i.e. 6' 4"+) tight end...

Really wanted us to draft late or make a priority free agent signing out of TE Brian Parker, Albany (NY)...

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Evans makes sense. beat that drum all off season already. has probably two more years left in the tank before he starts to decline. benefit of becoming a starter late ones career. top 5 OL anyone?

Tim Wright? watch him last year and he might be an ok addition. he was the key to the Logan Mankins cap causality trade (4th & Wright ). Plus the pats need a stop gap measure for Rob.

Scott Chandler signing made him expendable and showed the Pats probably had little faith in him.

But he was not all that bad either.

I would rank it as a ho hum move myself. nothing great but not a sign of desperation at the TE position either.

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Sure did quiet down alot regarding TE Jermaine Gresham...

Wonder what DL Red Bryant is doing these days as he was still effective?!?

Consider Dan Connolly affordable vs Mathis for interior OL depth...

Would Zach Strief put in a word for fellow NW alum DL Barry Cofield?!?
