2009 Free Agency Class

Having faith that the Patriots front office has for the most part done right by its fandom so far, doesn't help my nagging concerns about the fate of our players whose contracts are set to expire in the near future.  John Tomase brought it to my attention with his article in Sunday's Herald, and it made me curious to know exactly which Patriots are up for a new contract and need to be signed and taken care of so I can rest easy in the off-season.



First a disclaimer.  I'm not completely sure how accurate this list is, so please feel free to correct me where it's wrong.  Aside from John Tomase's initial teaser on Sunday, this information is taken from Miguel's Very Unofficial Patriots Free Agency Page.  Thank you Miguel.

Here is a listing of when each current Patriots player will become a free agent in the future:
