New England Patriots: Sign Sidney Rice, the Time To Win Is Now

Изображение

Face it fans, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn't getting any younger — he's getting older. Brady is turning 34 in August, and doesn't have too many "elite" years left.

This offseason is crucial for New England, and Bill Belichick needs to understand that.

Enough with MVP awards and Pro Bowl selections, it's all about the Vince Lombardi Trophies. Brady and the Patriots organization need to gain some rings out the final years of Brady's career.

New England has a good thing going here: a young defense, up and coming tight ends, quality receivers, and an elite quarterback. But, they need to keep adding.

During the dynasty years, the Patriots had the same core group of players for those three Super Bowls, and by adding a player like Sidney Rice could very well put the Pats over the top.

It's not like New England is in desperate need of a receiver; Wes Welker and Deion Branch are both very efficient receivers. But, Welker and Branch aren't as physical as they are good route runners.

The Patriots didn't need former wide receiver Randy Moss against the New York Jets in the playoffs, they need another type of receiver who could "physically get open."

Rice would be the ideal answer.

Not only does Rice have a large, athletic frame for a wide receiver standing in at 6'4", but he's a well-rounded player.

Rice can be a possession receiver, a deep threat, and more importantly, a play maker.

The four-year receiver has spent all of his seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, and most certainly has been a top tier receiver.

Spending most of last year hurt, Rice still had a productive season. Playing in six games, Rice managed to bring in 17 receptions for two touchdowns, averaging an impressive 16.5 yards for reception.

Rice's best season in Minnesota was 2009, quarterback Brett Favre's first season with the Vikings. Arguably, this was Rice's first season with a "decent" quarterback. He caught 83 passes for eight scores.

The past few seasons with the Vikings, Rice has spent it playing alongside slot receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin, who's' very similar to Welker, excelled with Rice's presence, and Rice can do the same with Welker.

Earlier this offseason, the Vikings neglected to place their franchise tag on Rice, which now allows Rice to enter free agency.

However, due to the uncertainty of a new labor deal for the NFL, free agency will be delayed. But, once free agency starts, the Belichick and the Patriots need to pursue Rice.

Redskins trade Haynesworth to Patriots for 2013 fifth draft pick

One of the biggest free-agent flops in NFL history came to an end Thursday, when the Washington Redskins shipped defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick, NFL Network's Albert Breer confirmed via a source.

It's relatively meager compensation for a two-time All-Pro with one of the most lucrative contracts ever signed.

The move rids the Redskins of a two-year distraction who did little to justify his standing on the field and was in constant legal trouble away from it. Haynesworth played in just 20 games in Washington, recording 6.5 sacks. Last season, he constantly feuded with new coach Mike Shanahan and was suspended for the final four games for conduct detrimental to the team.

The deal also completes the second half of a much-needed task for Shanahan in the compressed few days between the end of the NFL lockout and the start of training camp. The two big-name malcontents from last season -- Donovan McNabb and Haynesworth -- are gone, just in time for the players' official report date Thursday. The Redskins worked out a deal to trade McNabb on Wednesday, sending him to the Minnesota Vikings for a sixth-round draft pick in 2012 and a conditional sixth-round selection in 2013.

Haynesworth was guaranteed a then-record $41 million in the seven-year, $100 million contract he signed in the early hours of free agency in 2009. On the same day, he infamously declared: "You're not going to remember Albert Haynesworth as a bust."

But he'll be chronicled as just that -- the biggest free-agent mistake in Dan Snyder's 12 years as Redskins owner, quite an achievement considering the money he overspent on underachievers such as Deion Sanders and Adam Archuleta.

Now Haynesworth is headed to the Patriots to play for another controlling, Super Bowl-winning coach -- Bill Belichick -- who has a new reclamation project to undertake. Randy Moss and Corey Dillon are among the players who found new life in New England after their careers appeared on the wane.

"He'll see how we do things around here, point blank," Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork said. "We had guys come through here with a rap sheet and (people) say he can't be handled, this guy can't do this and, you know what, it worked out fine for us. So I don't think it will be a big problem."

Haynesworth's problems accelerated when Shanahan was hired in early 2010, launching a battle of egos that never ceased. Haynesworth skipped offseason workouts because he didn't want to play nose tackle in the 3-4 defense the new coaches were installing, voicing instead his preference for a scheme that would showcase his talent and help achieve his goal of becoming "the best defense tackle to ever play this game." Shanahan told Haynesworth to go find another team, contingent upon giving up a $21 million contract bonus due April 1.

Haynesworth kept the money and stayed on the roster. He boycotted a mandatory minicamp, drawing a $10,000 fine and the public ire of several teammates. He became a league-wide punch line when he needed 10 days to pass a conditioning test at the start of training camp, then lost his starting job and became a marginal role player. He played in just eight games last season before Shanahan suspended him with four games to play, citing a litany of issues that amounted to insubordination.

Meanwhile, Haynesworth's legal problems kept piling up. At one point last summer, he was juggling as many four court-related matters at the same time, including lawsuits from a bank, an exotic dancer, a man injured in an automobile accident, and complaints from his ex-wife that he wasn't paying her health insurance or their children's bills.

In May, Haynesworth reached an out-of-court settlement after being accused of a road-rage attack in Virginia. He still has pending a misdemeanor sexual-abuse charge, stemming from an accusation that he fondled a waitress at a hotel bar in Washington. He has pleaded not guilty, and the case is scheduled to go to trial Aug. 23.

But at least his football future now lies with another team. The Patriots aren't expected to announce the trade before Friday, subject to a physical and conditioning test.

Of course, Haynesworth's 2010 conditioning test turned into its own soap opera.

"Obviously, from the outside looking in, you can see that Albert wasn't really happy in his situation," Patriots defensive end Ty Warren said. "And, really, at the same time all you see is what goes on on the outside and sometimes that's only half of the truth. So I don't think (his arrival) is going to be a problem, with the structure of this locker room, the guys that's in this locker room."

Cincinnati Bengals trade Chad Ochocinco to New England Patriots for 2012 & 2013 draft picks

Chad Ochocinco's next stop is New England after an offseason in which he had a soccer tryout, rode a bull, took a spin in a race car and waited to be traded.

That wait ended Thursday when the outspoken wide receiver was dealt to the Patriots, a team coached by Bill Belichick, who closely monitors, and tries to control, his players' public comments.

A source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora the Patriots obtained the colorful Ochocinco from the Cincinnati Bengals and that he agreed to a new three-year contract. The Patriots gave up a pair of late-round draft picks in return, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"He was an incredible player here," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in a text message to NFL Network's Kara Henderson. "I will miss him as a player and a person. I wish him the very best and thank him for his hard work for me."

It was the second major move by the Patriots, who earlier in the day obtained Albert Haynesworth, the disgruntled Washington Redskins defensive tackle, for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick.

The relationship between Belichick and Ochocinco, with extremely different public personas, is unexpectedly warm.

"I like Chad," Belichick said before the 2010 season opener between the teams. "I like him as a player. I like him as a person. I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has with football, and I like how he competes on the football field. I have a lot of respect for that.

"An odd couple, but in the end, I think we have a lot of things in common."

Belichick and Ochocinco grew closer during Pro Bowl practices.

"It became a relationship beyond just a football player and a coach," Ochocinco said. "He became a friend of mine. He has a lot of respect for me in my game, and I have a lot of respect for him in everything he's done as a coach.

"We just became really close and fond of each other's work. He's one that I look up to tremendously, one that I've never played for, but I show the same respect as if he was my own head coach."

Now Belichick is Ochocinco's coach.

Ochocinco, who caught 12 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown in a 38-24 Patriots victory last year, provides another option for Tom Brady, who has been without a deep target since the Patriots traded Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings after four games last season. In 10 seasons, all with the Bengals, Ochocinco has 751 catches for 10,783 yards and 66 touchdowns. He has made the Pro Bowl six times.

But when the Bengals drafted wide receiver A.J. Green in the first round in April, it became likely that Ochocinco would be released, traded or told to take a large pay cut.

The trade follows a one-year partnership with wide receiver Terrell Owens. Ochocinco dubbed the pair "Batman and Robin." They combined for 139 catches and 13 touchdowns, but the Bengals were 4-12.

Ochocinco joins a receiving corps that includes Wes Welker and Deion Branch, along with tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, both of whom are coming off outstanding rookie seasons.

With the lockout over, it's back to football for Ochocinco, who might have to negotiate for Hernandez's No. 85 jersey.

Wearing a helmet and standard protective vest, Ochocinco rode a 1,500-pound bull named Deja Blu on May 14 on the Professional Bull Riders circuit. He earned $10,000 for making it out of the chute, but he was bucked off after just 1.5 seconds with no apparent injury.

On June 30, he rode in a race car at Atlanta Motor Speedway with Jeff Burton, who estimated he reached speeds of 150 to 160 mph.

Earlier in the offseason, Ochocinco had a soccer tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer. Last year, he was one of four finalists on the "Dancing With the Stars" television show.

Under Belichick, though, it's all football -- and Ochocinco has been outstanding at that

He has exceeded 1,000 receiving yards in seven of his 10 seasons, including an NFL-high 1,369 in 2006. Last season, he had 67 catches for 831 yards and four touchdowns.

Belichick now must work Ochocinco into the offense -- and grow accustomed to the receiver's prolific use of Twitter.

Ochocinco was fined $25,000 by the NFL for using the social media network during a preseason game, but he apologized and has followed the guidelines since.

Four days before last year's opener against the Bengals, Belichick was asked if he follows Ochocinco's tweets.

The coach smiled, and joked, "I don't do Twitter or MyFace or any of that stuff," a takeoff on MySpace and Facebook.

Now Belichick can communicate with Ochocinco in person.

Haynesworth is exactly what Patriots defense needs

New England is the perfect environment for Albert Haynesworth. I love this acquisition by Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

Is Haynesworth difficult? Without question. But surround him with the right teammates, like the strong leaders in the Patriots locker room, and he will comply. Like most players, Haynesworth needs to be led, he needs to be coached and he needs to be put in the best possible position to succeed. And this is what New England does better than any other organization in the league.

I know Haynesworth has lazy tendencies. I know he does not play hard all the time. But when he does, he is a game changer. He is a player everyone fears, because never can one offensive lineman handle him. The Patriots get a motivated Haynesworth, who will be out to prove his naysayers wrong -- especially Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Haynesworth and Shanahan got off on the wrong foot and it went from bad to worse quickly and is the reason why he is now in New England. You can bet Haynesworth is already eyeballing the Patriots-Redskins game in D.C. in Week 14.

The Patriots have a good defense, but it struggles when it can't play its own style. The shocking loss to the lowly Browns in 2010 is a perfect example. The Browns were a terrible team when put in third down and long, but excelled in third and short. So when playing Cleveland, defenses knew they needed to create negative plays to gain control of the game. But the Patriots could not do this. They allowed the Browns to always be in third and short, which they were able to convert and keep the ball away from Tom Brady and the explosive offense. The Pats ranked dead last in the league on third-down conversions and they entered the offseason with the goal of trying to find players who could be disruptive.

Enter Haynesworth. When he is on the field, he has to be doubled. With Vince Wilfork lining up next to him, it spells more than trouble for opposing offensive lines. The Patriots now have two power players who will be impossible for linemen to handle. Watch the negative plays pile up for the Patriots this season.

Patriots sign two draft picks; Release six veterans

The New England Patriots announced the signing of third round draft pick QB Ryan Mallett and fifth round draft pick OL Marcus Cannon. Terms of the contracts were not announced.

In addition, the Patriots released LB Tully Banta-Cain, CB Tony Carter, TE Alge Crumpler, T Nick Kaczur, DL Marcus Stroud, DL Ty Warren and rookie free agent LB Ryan Coulson from Nevada.


2011 DRAFT PICK SIGNINGS

Mallett, a quarterback from Arkansas, was selected by the Patriots in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft with the 74th selection overall. Mallett, 6-6, 238 pounds, began his college career at Michigan before transferring to Arkansas. During his collegiate career, Mallett appeared in 37 games (11 at Michigan and 26 at Arkansas). He started all 26 contests he appeared in at Arkansas and three at Michigan. Mallett concluded his college career with 8,385 yards, 69 touchdowns and 24 interceptions, completing 552-of-955 passes (57.80%).

He moved from right tackle to left tackle as a senior in 2010. Cannon did not allow a sack in his final two seasons.


VETERAN PLAYERS RELEASED

Banta-Cain, 6-2, 250 pounds, was originally drafted by the Patriots in the seventh round (239th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft. He played for the Patriots for four seasons from 2003-06, playing in 54 games with five starts over that period. Banta-Cain was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an unrestricted free agent on March 3, 2007, and played for the 49ers for two seasons (2007-08), playing in 28 games with 10 starts for San Francisco. He re-signed with the Patriots on Feb. 18, 2009 after being released by the 49ers on Feb. 11, 2009. In 31 games with the Patriots in 2009 and 2010, Banta-Cain registered 15 sacks, including a team-leading and career-high 10.0 sacks in 2009.

Carter, 5-9, 175 pounds, joined the Patriots practice squad on Sept. 7 after being released by the Denver Broncos on Aug. 30. He was signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Dec. 18 and played in two games. Carter originally joined the Denver Broncos as a rookie free agent out of Florida State in 2009. He spent the first 14 weeks of the 2009 season on the Denver practice squad before spending the final three games of the season on the active roster. Carter played in two games as a rookie with one start and finished with one solo tackle and one fumble recovery.

Crumpler, 6-2, 275 pounds, was signed by the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent on March 24, 2010. Crumpler started in 10 of the 16 regular season games and finished with six receptions for 52 yards and two touchdowns. Originally a second-round draft choice (35th overall) by the Atlanta Falcons out of North Carolina in 2001, Crumpler played for the Falcons (2001-07) and the Tennessee Titans (2008-09). Crumpler earned four-straight Pro Bowl honors from 2003 through 2006. He enjoyed one of his best seasons in 2005 when he registered career-highs with 65 receptions for 877 yards.
