Pats Get Lynched

ESPN is reporting that the Pats have signed big hitting safety to a one year deal. I love this signing. Lynch is a 9 time probowler who is known for hitting the snot out of people. I doubt he has what it takes to play every down, but let's face it, we don't need him too. Tank Williams is out for the year, and Lynch can fill that role well.

Think about the options it give the Pats. You put him, Harrison, and Merriweather on the field at the same time, and the opposing QB will have not idea who the safeties are, or who has cornerback responsibilities. It's going to keep them guessing, which is what we want.

Best case scenario Lynch come in and pulls a Junior Seau. When Seau was signed a few years ago he was only meant to play on certain running downs, and thats it. But he showed up and worked his way into the starting rotation. Lynch could do the same thing....

Either way this is a great signing.
