Andy Hart joins Sports Tonight to play a game of 'Take Your Pick' where he gives his input on what the Patriots should do with their franchise tag.
Let's kick off the three-pack of questions with possibly the most concerning area for the Patriots - the secondary.
Who would you rather see in the secondary next season?
The choices: Aqib Talib, Ed Reed, Patrick Chung?
Hart says this one is easy, and the answer is Talib, although he says "I don't think it's gonna happen." Hart predicts Talib will get 20 million guaranteed and it won't be the Patriots signing the checks.
Chung can't get much love, and Merloni doesn't believe Reed is going to ruin his "Ravens legacy" by spending one year with the Patriots.
Hart and Tanguay aren't so sure, and believe Reed wants the money. Plus, there's that 'bromance' between Reed and Bill Belichick.
Who would you use the franchise tag on?
The choices: Sebastian Vollmer or Wes Welker?
Last year there was a lot of drama with the tag and Welker. This time around, the panel thinks the Pats show Welker some love and give him a multi-year contract and use the tag on Vollmer.
Hart believes Vollmer is an "elite right tackle" when he's healthy, and thinks the tag should go to him to 1) preserve the offensive line and 2) let Vollmer prove he can stay healthy. A long term deal with Vollmer would cost the Patriots more than they'd like to pay for a health-challenge lineman.
Which gritty underdog is more likely to be re-signed?
The choices: Julian Edelman or Danny Woodhead?
Edelman brings more value to the team as an above average punt returner and extra receiver. The panel believes both players will be back with the Pats next season.
