Free-Agent Fit: Defensive line
By Mike Rodak
(Student assistant Mike Rodak continues an early position-by-position look at free agency with the Patriots. Because free-agency rules are unclear based on the uncertain collective bargaining agreement, the 2010 rules were used to compile the information. Teams may also restrict some of these players with the franchise tag.)
KEY CONSIDERATION: Eight-year veteran Ty Warren is coming off a hip injury that wiped out his 2010 season. His production has dipped since receiving a large contract extension four seasons ago, so the team may be on the lookout for his eventual replacement.
