    Can’t wait to see the specifics, but the Pats have quite the secondary now. Revis / Browner / Dennard / Ryan / Arrington at CB & McCourty at FS. Now we need some DT help!

      Armstead is the wildcard of the defense. If he can perform at a high level, we’re golden

      If he can stay healthy they’re in good shape. He will be a monster, his only issue is being able to actually take the field.

        What was his injury history like before the Pats signed him?

        • DieHardMsFan

          He had a groin injury last year. Also if I remember correctly some hamstring issues. That said his biggest liability is actually being on the field. The last two years he got suspended (also suspended first 4 games of this upcoming season).

          • RahZid

            I thought DC was talking about Armstead.

          • DieHardMsFan

            Oh, I thought he was describing Browner.

            Didn’t Armstead have some sort of heart condition?

          • RahZid

            Ok, I finally caved and did some research. He had the heart condition at USC, but he’s played professionally since then without incident (as far as I can tell). He had surgery to address some type of infection, which was unrelated to his heart.

      I was talking about Armstead. I also was referring to that heart condition and last years infection. If all that is behind him, he will showcase what he did in the CFL.

    Stupid signing, I didn’t think anyone would touch this guy, already suspended 4 games, he’s a talented player but not worth the headache

    • RahZid

      I don’t really see him as a headache. Yes he was suspended in 2012 for using a prescription drug, but his suspension to start this season is pretty BS. He didn’t take an NFL drug test while he was playing in the CFL.
