    They signed center dan koppen to a 5 year deal today. Thought he would of been a perfect signing for the fins next year, o well.

    I don't know if to hate the pats are to admire them.....this team is going to be good for years to come. They are always adding pieces to that puzzle, and more often than not those pieces seem to fit.

    This is a great signing as you can see
    Position / name / yrs till they are a pat
    Center/Dan Koppan(2011)
    left tackle Matt Light (2010),
    left guard Logan Mankins (2009),
    right guard Stephen Neal (2009),
    right tackle Ryan O'Callaghan (2009),
    swing tackle Nick Kaczur (2009) and guard/center Russ Hochstein (2008)

    they and even the backup are going to be together for a while.They are all in their mid 20`s or early 20`s.

    Btw, Picking up a big expensive FA on a OL is not going to fix the OL ... if you look at the list koppen and ryan and most ar 5th round picks and above who have developed over time that would be a sound strategy.

    Well the good news is that the Pats are probably all done for the rest of the offseason because of that resigning.

    Actually, He is being paid next season so they still have 12 million in cap room as of now.They might give him his bonus or part of it this season but as of now this deal starts after his rookie years.
