Many Patriots fans probably feel as though free agency is setting up to be a dream scenario. The secondary has long been a problem, and not only does it appear that Ravens safety Ed Reed will be a free agent at some point, but the Packers released defensive back Charles Woodson and his $9.4 million salary-cap number.
A match made in heaven with one of those players? Perhaps. I’m sure Tom Brady would love to have Woodson, his former Michigan teammate, in the fold. And the further the last Super Bowl title gets in the distance, the more likely it is that the Patriots go for broke with an acquisition they wouldn’t normally make.
