Patriots links around the Web

By Mike Reiss

A few Patriots-based links from around the Web:

Polian's free-agent tracker. Former Colts president Bill Polian, now working as a football analyst at ESPN, provides his "free-agent tracker" for all available players. When looking at his grades for Patriots free agents, he doesn't hand out any A's.

Belichick and scouting talk. Nick Klopsis, as part of Neil Best's Newsday blog, writes on how the movie "Draft Day" tapped one of Bill Belichick's unique scouting methods.

Three Patriots among 'top players to get overpaid' list.'s "Around the League" bloggers put together a list of the top 10 players who are likely to be overpaid in free agency, and there are three Patriots who make the cut. Not a very flattering view of the three players widely seen as the Patriots' top free agents.

Talib lands in 'risky' category. In another piece about risky free agents, this one from columnist Adam Schein, cornerback Aqib Talib lands among the list of riskiest free agents.
