The way Tom Brady has dominated the free agency news cycle, it’s almost hard to remember the Patriots will be pursuing other players.
That’s why we’re here.
Each day leading up to the NFL’s legal free-agent tampering period, which begins Monday, the Herald will unveil one of 10 potential Patriot targets on the open market. The Pats rank in the bottom half of the league in available cap space, so high-profile free agents like Cowboys wideout Amari Cooper will be omitted from the list. But the Patriots usually hunt in the bargain bin anyways, so that’s where we’ll dig.
Some names you’ll recognize, others you won’t. All, however, deserve to be remembered come Monday. Because all could be potential Patriots.
