Patriots re-sign S James Ihedigbo

The Patriots snuck in the re-signing of James Ihedigbo just before closing time on Friday.

Contract details have not yet been disclosed.

In 2011, the 28-year old safety started 12 of 16 regular season games and a trio in the playoffs. He finished his first season in New England with a career-high 72 tackles, one pass defensed, and four special team tackles.

And throw in one successful offseason shoulder surgery.

Ihedigbo will provide depth somewhere behind every-down safety Patrick Chung. Where he ends up -- in a mix including Steve Gregory, Sergio Brown, and Tavon Wilson -- will shake out more clearly after training camp.

Rumor has it there are NFL teams willing to send a 'blockbuster trade' to the New England Patriots for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Mike Giardi describes what he thinks would be a blockbuster trade for Jimmy G.

Bennett to critics: ‘You take a paycut’

Martellus Bennett is as good at Twitter as he is at football. Add to that the fact that all eyes are on whether the free agent will stay in New England and the @MartysaurusRex account becomes a must-follow. 

On Wednesday, Bennett put his powers to good use and shared a glimpse into his line of thinking regarding free agency.

Bennett, who could very well leave the Pats for more money, responded to a criticism of his desire to get paid and followed it with several more musings.
