I like that the Patriots are spending money to load up on some talent, especially Cam who deserved another chance without the weight of the world stacked against him. I still don't know about the balance of players. The only offensive weapon so far is $50m for Jonnu Smith. He had 1200yds and 15 TDs.. in his entire four seasons. Gronk had 1300yds and 17TDs in one year. Jonnu Smith is young and from what people are saying has great upside, but I don't know about $50m for him in this NFL economy. They better have a serious eye on a top WR for this draft. Can't afford to whiff as badly as they did with N'Keal Harry.
Still, Patriots are quickly emerging as one of the most interesting teams this offseason. A lot more interesting to me than the Rams who I feel overreached for Stafford and just seem like Fool's Gold. Both I feel are in need of a top offensive weapon before they can be serious contenders. Patriots at least still have several assets available, though as I predicted last offseason in the previous thread, they shot themselves in the foot by winning too many games. I didn't think they would have Cam Newton though.
Edit: So apparently if you take time to blink, Bill Belichick will have signed half the league by the time you've finished. God damn lmao.
Still lacking a true no.1 for now, but I love the offensive depth they're building.
