The Patriots Cap situation and my Predictions



Hey everyone, I did some hard researching and figured out what the pats cap situation might be this offseason and going into next year. I did not predict who they were going to pick in the draft but i did have them trading out of the first round to acquire a second round pick. I think they will try to pick a defensive end in the first round. I also did not predict what other free agents they will sign. I have Brandon Lloyd and his salary because I think he has a very good chance of being a patriot next year. Take a look and let me know what you think....
