The combine came to an end on Tuesday, and while the scouting process will continue over the course of the next two months with private workouts and Pro Days, here’s a quick look back at who helped themselves and who hurt themselves over the six days in Indy. WINNERS

Twenty-four hours after the news of Tom Brady’s extension was announced, more contract details are starting to leak out. At this point, here’s what we know, according to multiple reports and different sources:

INDIANAPOLIS -- It’s never easy to predict who the Patriots will target in late April every year, but this time around, the wide-open nature of this year’s draft class makes the task impossible.

INDIANAPOLIS -- It’s almost impossible to separate Manti Te’o the football player from Manti Te’o the pop-culture punchline. But let’s think for a minute about Te’o as a prospect -- specifically, if he were still on the board when the Patriots were on the clock this spring, would they consider the controversial linebacker?

INDIANAPOLIS -- If the Patriots are going to trade Ryan Mallett, this is as good an offseason as any.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The distance between the Patriots and the rest of the AFC East is already pretty wide -- New England has won nine of the last 10 division titles, and done so pretty handily. The only exception to the rule came in 2008 when -- of course -- quarterback Tom Brady was on the shelf for practically the entire season.

When it comes to gauging how well a team is positioned for the NFL postseason, late-season momentum is overrated. Health is not.

We’ve already touched on the possibility of Ed Reed as a potential Patriot here, but when free agency begins, there are a handful of less-heralded players who could appeal to New England as well.

With the 2012 season done, we’ve decided to take a look back the 10 best plays of the year for the Patriots. Not every one of the plays ended in a touchdown, sack or interception, but the combination of execution, results and situation led us to name it one of the best of the year.

The Patriots' season ended almost two weeks ago (by this point, it seems like it was months) with a loss to the Ravens in the AFC title game, and by now, most New England football fans have had more than their fair share of storylines and hype involving Sunday’s game between San Francisco and Baltimore. (Did you know that the two coaches are brothers?

  Ed Reed is a Hall of Famer, a rare talent who can get away with being out of position, but still managing to come away with the right play at the right time. And if the Patriots can get the impending free agent on their terms this offseason -- that is to say one, or maybe two years tops, on short money -- they should jump at the chance.

It’s always a pleasure to get some additional insight into the game from a scout -- they offer a perspective on life in the NFL that we rarely see. With that in mind, we asked an NFC scout who watched plenty of Patriots’ games this year about three points of emphasis for New England heading into the offseason.

Here’s the first look at the group of players who were with the Patriots in 2012 but aren’t under contract to the team going forward, as well as a thumbnail sketch about their respective situations and their chances of returning.
