'Take Your Pick'-Who should Patriots use Franchise tag on?
Fri, 25 Jan 2013|
Andy Hart joins Sports Tonight to play a game of 'Take Your Pick' where he gives his input on what the Patriots should do in the off-season.
Patrol wouldn't take your pick every -- -- a picture of what we don't really great they were good enough to ninety yards and don't know I don't know. -- Maybe who would you rather see in the secondary next season take your pick would be a key to leave we'll be Ed Reed 32 years old. -- won't always be patched up. The guy I'd rather see these huge toll. You know I don't think it was overblown and the second. Here the confidence Belichick had in him to sort of -- him up against the opponent's best receiver. -- -- happen I think you know little guys about this off the air is the guy you start to look at contracts for cornerbacks. There's just not enough -- to go around so if you have any talent and ability you get paid. You know you look at the contracts from last year it was fifty million dollars basically five year deals fifty million dollars Jason McCord. Who -- -- anybody considered the anywhere near an elite corner who wasn't even the best corner in the court family signed the twenty million dollar guarantee deal forty million dollars I think to leaves gonna get at least twenty million guarantee. Resiliency unfortunate I think I agree with you -- likely fight traffic -- is outings Ed Reed to me. Ray Lewis -- whole careers a reason he's gonna play one more years ago it jump ship -- they wanna know about you Arnie and he wants to get a little bit of money I think I think bill would pay him we don't celebrate the one more you can get the ruling that Ed Reed Ravens legacy kind of go to the -- There about that he wants the money he wants some money and I know the Raiders are gonna have -- -- you -- no female have this thing. It's a weird man I'd love to get out Chad Jackson logged in to for definitely -- -- -- any safety help but it's not then there's not an Ed -- safety they need somebody who can lay the lumber Ed -- isn't that especially now he's a coverage guy at this point is -- as much as Brady was afraid of them and try to fend him off with -- -- he's a coverage guy you know bring in any impact hits and Rodney Harrison's that they -- -- the guy more like all the guy that's gonna get. Fines because he's laying people out that's not -- -- now let's move on up the if you call the shots who would you put the franchise tag on wouldn't be Wes Welker but would it be Sebastian Vollmer. I think it's -- you know I'd like to welcome sign and I think this -- for his career. His demands are gonna come down so you can say. Westbrook and it paid fifty million dollars or forty million dollars what's the -- some agreement in the thirty million dollar -- -- former is a guy hit a great year and when he's healthy. He is eighth in the league right tackle and -- at left tackle type talent and maybe he'll try to sell some team on that try to get some money quote that back injury I think you. That's your insurance policy you franchise -- -- to worry about the -- get a year out because he was healthy this year but you know previously missed foot injury back injury while at the back going back to college. I worry about the back to however it's offensive line and still you have Tom Brady and if you get two bookends like you have right now you -- people. I do think Walker's gonna agree to a deal. I do it and I mean do you wanna pay him eleven and a half million notes only one year deal but I think you'd like to reward him make that goal -- -- the story goes away -- three years. Thirty million whatever is. And get that done so I think he attacked -- and and you try to get so you tagging -- to see because you know different again here I'm trying to protect its on line demanding offensive line it's -- -- it got I'd like to happen I'm not ready to -- Marcus cannon is ready to be my starting right tackle I range guys. And the back injury scares them also not willing to give Vollmer you know fifteen million guaranteed over a 45 year deal so I think protection -- -- attack which gritty underdog returns take your game I'd say. It's going to be -- number one Belichick loves the effort to Shane -- at the scene we'll make would have expanded. Would it is definitely more expendable we saw that this year you had welcome back as the main punt returner and to me that's where Adelman -- value comes as a pretty good. Punt return he's a very you know August there was some static he -- had a couple more punt returns who's going to be the best average in NFL history forgot the number returns he had some crazy -- I don't think he's that good. But he's been able to make them in that role over the years and has the extra receiver that Brady has some confidence and we know it's hard to build that report -- Brady for guys coming in. I think he's gonna be back because I think he's a more value here than anywhere else. I would be surprised him both well I think it will you know look at the -- I think it would headed to -- we'll both be back because -- loves the competition. But for sake of this discussion -- let -- -- an agitator purpose yeah we'll go out with Iowa that's just -- of those classic in. Quickly and I don't mean a lot we got -- -- -- right early years I think because of -- compared to Welker -- thought that was ridiculous. But I do think maybe we. -- valued him a little bit -- the better law that loss hurt a little bit more gonna help on some there's no certainly helped on Sunday not only as a punt -- taken some of the the weight off Welker but. Get more comments than in the -- Brandon Lloyd with the ability to make a play right so but forget about those comparisons he's -- the well replacing -- anymore he's just got.
