Out Like a Lion?

The Patriots certainly haven't made much news this offseason so far (except for Ty Law's recent tirades):

Veteran Free Agents

DE Rodney Bailey (Pitt.)
P Josh Miller (Pitt.)

S Je'Rod Cherry
LB Don Davis
RB Kevin Faulk
FB Patrick Pass

S Chris Akins (to Miami)
OL Mike Compton (to Jack.)
NT Ted Washington (to Oakland)
OL Damien Woody (to Detroit)

Miller should be an upgrade over Ken Walter, but the jury's out on whether Bailey could replace Bobby Hamilton. The recent courtship of Keith Traylor is likely a fishing expedition for a cheap lineman in light of his age and recent injury history.

Re-signing Faulk seems like a better move than overpaying for an older player like Charlie Garner. It also makes you think that the Patriots goal in the first round of the draft is to get a true number one type running back, since they didn't trust Faulk with the ball on an every down basis late in the season. On the other hand, Antowain Smith hasn't been signed by anyone yet...
