Projecting New England Patriots' NFL Free-Agent Targets

NFL free agency officially starts the afternoon of March 12, and the New England Patriots are likely to make multiple moves.

With Tom Brady's new deal in place, the Patriots are reportedly $22-25 million under the cap (per Field Yates of ESPNBoston) and should be able to fill many needs through free agency.

From this writer's perspective, the Patriots' top needs are as follow:

Defensive Back: With Aqib Talib a pending free agent and the future development of Tavon Wilson an unknown, the Patriots need to add depth at corner and safety.

Defensive Tackle: The team needs higher-quality depth behind Vince Wilfork. Kyle Love and Brandon Deaderick are probably better suited in situational roles.

Wide Receiver: With Brandon Lloyd likely getting the boot (per Tom E. Curran of CSNNE) and Wes Welker and Julian Edelman both set to hit free agency, the Patriots need to add more wide receivers.

With a focus on these needs, the following slides will highlight potential free agents the Patriots are likely to target.
