The first six days of free agency have seen a dizzying pace of activity throughout the NFL. As for the Patriots, they’ve said goodbye to a pair of high-profile receivers and added two others, and also made some interesting moves on the defensive side of the ball.

Because the receiver wasn’t hit with the franchise tag for the second consecutive season, it’s been hard to figure out which direction Wes Welker and the Patriots are headed when it comes to a new deal for the receiver. Not a day goes by where there isn’t a new report regarding the relationship between Welker and the Patriots: Are the two sides close on a deal?

With free agency set to start Tuesday at 4 p.m., we decided to take a look back at the 20 finest free agent moments of the Bill Belichick era in New England.

NFL free agency opens Tuesday afternoon at 4 -- not counting the weird negotiating/tampering window this weekend -- which will bring with it a blizzard of rumors, half-truths and hearsay that will likely snap Twitter in half before things are done.

The Patriots don’t deal in hypotheticals, but with some uncertainty surrounding his contract situation, it’s worth speculating what the New England offense might look like if

Five (mostly) Patriots-related thoughts as the NFL’s tagging period came to an end Monday afternoon:

The NFL is a league full of copycats, and so when a read option team managed to make it all the way to the Super Bowl, the rest of the league stood up and took notice.

When it comes to scouting wide receivers and defensive backs, the Patriots have traditionally put a lot of emphasis on the 3-cone drill.

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

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.
Christopher Price
02/23/2013 - 5:46pm
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?
Christopher Price
02/22/2013 - 7:39pm
INDIANAPOLIS -- If the Patriots are going to trade Ryan Mallett, this is as good an offseason as any.
Christopher Price
02/21/2013 - 11:17pm
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.
