For all of the furor that was made over what the Patriots lost in their passing game last offseason, it’s worth mentioning that things are considerably different this offseason.

With Tom Brady ostensibly on the back nine of his career, he uttered a telling statement earlier this spring when he told Peter King, “You don’t have to suck when you get older.”

It can be a fool’s errand to try to put together a depth chart at this time of the season for any one position. Despite the fact that free agency and the draft are in the rearview mirror, there’s still plenty left between now and the start of the season when it comes to the team-building process.

The arrival of Jimmy Garoppolo has sparked plenty of conversation about the Patriots and their plans for a post-Tom Brady world. While the incumbent signal-caller, who turns 37 in August, has stated he wants to play for several more years, it’s only natural to start to think about the transition.

FOXBORO -- While there’s some debate as to whether or not Jimmy Garoppolo could be the guy who eventually succeeds Tom Brady at quarterback with the Patriots, he’s certainly been constructed in the mold of Brady.

Are the Patriots better now than they were at the start of free agency? As the first wave of this portion of the team-building comes to a close, they've certainly shown improvement -- particularly when it comes to their secondary -- but at the same time, it’s important to remember that the process of crafting the final 2014 roster is far from finished.

The acquisition of Darrelle Revis gives the Patriots a transformative defensive presence -- a shutdown corner who is capable of singlehandedly changing a game.

When 4 p.m. hits on Tuesday and NFL free agency begins, it’s important to remember the words of John Wooden: Don’t mistake activity for achievement.

So, what really changed Sunday night? Prior to Sunday, Missouri defensive end Michael Sam was thought of as a relatively highly regarded prospect. The reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Year, the 6-foot-2, 255-pounder finished the 2013 season with 11.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss, and he attained All-America status as a result.

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 some points of emphasis for New England heading into the offseason.

Throughout the offseason, we’ll check in frequently on New England’s free agent class. Here’s the first look at the group of players who were with the Patriots in 2013 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.
