Head coach Bill Belichick needs the final piece to get this team its first Super Bowl since 2004.

The New England Patriots' season ended in disappointment yet again after a loss in the AFC championship game to the Baltimore Ravens

While injuries and a hot Ravens team factored into the loss, one thing became clear.

The Patriots need to boost the secondary in some way.

Midseason acquisition cornerback, Aqib Talib, provided a talented defender who could match up with opposing No. 1 wide receivers.  But Talib's status is up in the air, seeing as how the Patriots might not want to dish out top-market cash for a player whose character and focus are constantly under scrutiny.  

The Patriots' Super Bowl teams consisted of Bill Belichick type players.  Hard hitters, intelligent position players and veterans were the backbone of the Patriots winning defenses.  

New England is hungry for a Super Bowl victory before Tom Brady's career is over with the Patriots.  

A strong, smart and hard-hitting safety or cornerback could be the missing piece.

Luckily for the Patriots, two of the best secondary players of the last decade are on the free agency market. 

Ed Reed and Charles Woodson would be perfect fits for the New England Patriots.
