As Patriot Nation waits for the NFL Draft to take place, the Patriot are progressing through the free agency period as they signed CB Eddie Jackson†and re-signed†WR Bam Childress, DE Mike Wright, S Rashad Baker, LB Corey Mays, and OT Gene Mruczkowski to the team.
The re-signing of the five former Patriots†brings back a young and talented group that have performed well for Bill Belichick and Co. or still have potential to develop.†
CB Eddie Jackson will re-join his follow ex-Miami team mates: Sammy Morris and Wes Welker. It makes you wonder if the Nick Saban connection Belichick enjoyed when Saban was at LSU is impacting the Patriots interest in these players.
Obviously the Patriots have played against these players the last few years and know them quite well, it is interesting that now Saban is gone that are going to a team with a similar†system.
