AFC East: Free Agency Catchup

It was another quiet day at Florham Park yesterday as the Jets were unable to strike a deal with any free agents, s what better time to check out what's been happening around the AFC East.

I love SB Nation for a number of reasons, professional journalism, fan perspective is the main one, but the other aspect I love is that we have every single team covered by the people who know them best. We're lucky enough in the AFC East to have four outstanding blogs on SB Nation and thanks to their work, it was extremely easy to put this article together.

So lets dive straight in and look at the New England Patriots. Head over to Pats Pulpit to check in on these guys.

Obviously all the unsigned free agents could return to their respective teams, however at this time because they are not contracted to their old team, I have listed them under losses. So just keep that in mind when looking at the team and if they have gotten better or worse.

Personally I do quite like what the Patriots have done, brought in two very physical corners and we saw how well that worked with Seattle last year. Buffalo losing Byrd will be a big loss and the Albert addition to the Dolphins is a good one.

At the same time I don't think they have got significantly better than ourselves. The Patriots perhaps have now moved ahead with Revis/Browner and Edelman/LaFell combination. There are still a lot of free agents out their to be had, so it'll be interesting to do this again in a weeks time.
