Run date 3/11/16 • ~r Patriots Pick Up Brady, Gronkowski Options Brady will keep tossing them and Gronk will keep spiking 'em, for the foreseeable future anyway. A week after agreeing to a two-year contract extension with quarterback Tom Brady, the team announced Mon- day that it had picked up the remaining $6 million on a $10-million contract with tight end Rob Gronkowski. The moves-likely secure that both men will remain Patriots through 2019. An irreplaceable piece of the Patriot offense, last season Gronkowski caught 72 passes for 1,176 yards and 11 touch- downs. On a forgettable Janu- ary afternoon in Denver, Gronk was one of the lone bright spots, fighting through constant dou- ble-coverage to snag 8 passes, 144 yards and a touchdown. Regrettably, one more Gronk catch, and he was wide open in the end zone (see photo), would have ensured an extra session of play and a shot at Super Bowl 50. (Gulp) Moving on ... Bye Bye JoJo Last Week, the Patriots an- nounced the release of receiver Brandon LaFeU. The move was hardly shocking, as LaFeU pro- duced a rather unremarkable 2015 regular season and was relegated to the wide re- ceiver spot on the depth chart for the post-season. LaFell was a phenomenal ac- quisition for the team in 2014, catching 74 passes for 953 yards and seven touchdowns. He came through in huge spots during the Super Bowl run, including the game winning touchdown versus the Balti- more Ravens in the divisional round, and the ice-breaking score in Super Bowl XLIX ver- sus the Seattle Seahawks. However, last season, LaFell battled through injuries that may have hindered his produc- tion. After beginning the season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, I.aFell struggled to regain his form. His 37 catches for 515 yards and zero touch- down totals were dwarfed by those of the previous season. The team will save $2.675 mil- lion in cap space by releasing LaFell. Patriots Free Agent Plans With few key free agents to retain, namely starting run- ning back LeGarrette Blount, the Patriots find themselves with two possible paths this off- season: Lock up current players or actively pursue adding to an already loaded roster. Frankly, they should be able to do both. At publication, the Patriots find themselves with approxi- mately $15 million in cap space this off-season. That number could increase should they extend some of their own free agents, lowering the 2016 cap hit, or if the team outright re- leases underachieving players, ahem ... If the Gronk option is any indication of things to come, look for the Patriots to extend linebackers Don't'a Hightower and Jamie Collins. Both are set A wide Open Gronkowski eludes Brady's vision on the failed two-point converszon m Denver. to become free agents after next season and both will command substantial contracts should they hit the open market. Col- lins has been a salary cap bargain for the Patriots with his current contract counting a stingy $1.2 million against the cap.. Speaking of undervalued (contract-wise) players, king among them is cornerback Mal- colm Butler. Breaking onto the scene in 2014, Butler capped it all off by merely clinching a Super Bowl championship. Last season, Butler was thrust into the starting role and didn't disappoint. He fin- ished second on the team with two interceptions behind fellow corner Logan Ryan (4). Butler's cap number for 2016 is set at $600,000 and like Hightower and Collins, will be a free agent after next season. Defensive end Chandler Jones completes this dynamic quartet, but is likely to be odd man out when it comes to an extension. Pass rushers are a highly sought after commod- ity and Jones is likely looking to cash in. He seems the best candidate to hit the open mar- ket next spring, if he isn't dealt away sooner. Of the possible namesnot on the roster that the Patriots could pursue, chief among them is running back Matt Forte. Since his interview on the NFL Network during the Super Bowl in which he claimed a desire to eschew money, making cham- pionships his primary goal, Pa- triot Place has been targeted as a primary landing spot for Forte ala Corey Dillon in 2004. But will the Patriots come calling? With his Swiss Army knife type abilities, Forte would be an ideal addition to an already potent attack. He just screams Patriots. However, Forte looks to be high on many teams wish list, teams that have far more money to spend than the Patriots. The offensive line is another area of need. The unit is un- doubtedly in need of revamping. However, after watchil g Super Bowl 50 and the Broncos deci- mation of the vaunted Panther front, maybe not as much as some would have you believe. The Patriots lost tackle Nate Solder to injury back in October and his presence should greatly solidify things in front of Brady next year. Furthermore, it is un- likely that the Patriots will throw big money along the line during free agency (sorry, no, Rus- sell Okung). Look for more in the way of depth signings and second tier options with some baggage like the Giants Will Beatty, who lost all of last season to injury, or the Saints Jahri Evans, who is coming off a down year. Trade Garroppolo?! No Thanks! A much discussed scenario making its way around New England and the NFL in gen- eral involves a potential trade of backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo is signed through the 2017 season, and with Brady locked up until 2019, the odds of Jimmy G seeing legit playing time seem slim. However, what if... 1). Brady begins to look human, joining a long list of Hall of Fame quarterbacks whose skills simply dimin- ished once they approached or passed the age of 40. 2). An injury similar to 2008 knocks Brady out for a consid- erable length of time Brady is 39, a fact at times not distinguished by the naked eye, and while having the high- est TD-to-INT ratio (5.1) in NFL history by a quarterback over 38/his age should be seen as a detriment and met with, at minimum, a tempered amount of caution. All of the above is null and void should Belichick and the Patriots not deem Garoppolo worthy of the starting job. If the PatriOts don't think he's THE guy, the anointed one to follow Tom Brady, then trading him for assets that could help the team now makes sense. • However, that path would beg the all-important question of who is-next in line and how long do the Patriots plan to wait to begin the grooming process. • "We know what Tom's age and contract situation are, so we felt as an organization that we needed to address that ... I think you're better being early rather than late at that posi- tion." That was Belichick after using a second round pick on Garoppolo in 2014. Clearly the Patriots believe that grooming a replacement is imperative. We've seen a late approach to succession handcuff local teams before. It's something that the Celtics failed to do following the fading of the Big Three in the early ' 90s and the reincarnation of a lethal threesome in the late 2000s. And while backups have come and gone, i.e. Casse11, Hoyer and Mallett, Garoppolo's two years of learning behind Brady are a great start to the evolution process. It's probably best not to throw them away. Proceed with caution.
