I thought we'd make one thread for the signings we'd like the Patriots to make when free agents are concerned.
Often, recent history have shown, it's not the biggest signings that will end up making the most noise. Therefore I'm particularly interested in under the radar signings you'd like to see. I'll start off with a few obvious ones:
Mathias Kiwanuka, OLB - Kiwanuka is intriguing but comes with a buyers beware sign (a suspicious neck injury). If given the green light by doctors and/or signed for a relatively modest price he could be a great addition and add to our pass rush instantly. He's got experience playing LBer and has shown to be a very good player when healthy.
Matt Light, OT - If Solder had been given more time my stance on this might have been different. However, Light is dependable and could play in a number of spots. While I like what the Patriots did adding to the offensive line through the draft both Solder and Cannon (when healthy) might have to learn the ropes for a while. Having Light around for at least another year would be a great insurance policy further on as well. However, if he gets a great deal somewhere else he will have to go and play ball there since we can't give him a huge contract under these circumstances.
