http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/03/16/buccaneers-sign-dane-fletcher/This is a fantastic pickup! Pats fans love this guy. He played well last year when Mayo(?) went down, and is a solid coverage LB as well as a special teams stud. He might be our best pass-coverage LB, and the guy we ask to cover other teams' TEs like Jimmy Graham. As such, he could end up competing not just for SAM but also for MLB in this scheme.Amazing what Licht has done this off-season!
I have been watching some of the Patriot’s games on NFL Network and was also impressed with Dane Fletcher. Excellent speed, able to get back in coverage and always seemed to be around the ball. Could compete with Foster and possibly allow Foster to move outside.
This could be a nothing signing, but if you believe half of what you read/see about the guy, this could be one of the more underrated moves. Hard to see Bill missing on a guy like that though, so I’m not getting too excited.
