Good move by the Pats.


I'm not sure at all Jones would be worth what he will command on a new contract.


Of his 12.5 sacks this year in 15 games, three of them came in the second game of the year against the Bills. It was Tyrod's second ever game started and a game in which he was sacked EIGHT times overall for 53 yards loss (-6.6 average). In the rematch, the Bills cleaned things up and Tyrod was sacked only twice for a total loss of 8 yards. Chandler sacked Tyrod ZERO times in that game.


Jones had a lot of multi sack games in 2015. Which means he also had a lot of games where he was a non-factor (according to the box score, New England fans would who actually watched all the games my have more incite). And his multi sack games came against questionable QB's, Tannheill, who this Bills fan knows often gets sacked. Marriota, a rookie. And Luck, who aired the ball out 50 times in that game and is a QB known for staying in the pocket longer to get the ball downfield.


Decent player but not worth what he will command on a new contract.

Agreed. Chandler Jones was a solid player, but Brady needs more protection. Cooper was a 1st round draft pick (#7 overall) but he was injured his first year. He's 6'2 and 312 so Brady will have some size on the left side....

Didn't realize Cooper went 7th overall in the draft. That has to be one of the highest ever for a guard.

Yeah high pick but he has underachieved and been injured....still a lot of upside though.

The writing was on the wall for Jones once he took his walk on the wild side ending up in a police station right before the playoffs

With Hightower, Butler and Collins all looking to get paid in the next year Jones made the decision easy for Belichick on who not to keep...

Gotta love the Marcellus Bennett pick up, huge up grade over Chandler

Tight end with the second most yards after catch in the NFL? Bennett

First of course is Gronk...

Nice 1-2 punch for Brady, match up nightmare..

I remember when Chandler signed with the Pats. The thought from Bills fans was that he would find a lot more success with Brady and the Pats system. Goes to show, it's more than just a good Qb and system. The player actually has to be good or at least fit the system.

Chandler also had some drop issues during this season.

Hogan, Bennett, Cooper, Long...it's been an exciting first week of free agency for the Pats.

I thought they were going to sign Matt Forte, but Lamar Miller was the RB I wanted them to go after. Still time to add more assets for Brady...and the draft.

Yes it has...

Honestly if Dion Lewis comes back healthy they don't even need to add another RB....maybe a late round draft pick if they want a big body....they will also have Develin back at full back next year, his absence hurt the running game clearly because they were a much better running team with him on the field

The Pat's beat writer Mike Reiss was drooling over the possibilities of the "twin towers" all off season and through mini camp and training camp, apparently Chandler was looking real good. Unfortunately he did have the drops and just couldn't get open consistently once the games counted....he ended up being replaced by a left tackle playing TE in Williams by the end of the season...
