    Patriots interested in Ernie Harwell

    – According to a league source, the Patriots have showed strong interest in free-agent LB Edgerton Hartwell, cut by the Falcons last week. The source said the team is still looking for a “run-stuffer”, a need that Hartwell could satisfy.

    Hartwell will be 29 when training camp commences, and has battled through injuries in two years with the Falcons playing eight and five games, respectively, in ‘05 and ‘06. But the three years prior to that, in Baltimore, he registered 141, 140, 191 tackles for the top-notch Ravens defense and earned a rep as one of the best against the run in the NFL. He also started some as a 3-4 inside linebacker there, brings good size (6-1, 250) and the Patriots now have his former teammate Adalius Thomas as a reference for him.

    Things are in a holding pattern now, as the Patriots staff is spread out to cover college pro days, but are expected to move forward next week.

    The key is his health. He was excellent in Baltimore's 3-4.

    yep. A real boom or bust guy, with an emphasis on the boom (with his health problems the last few years, I can't see there being much of a bust factor, as odds are he will sign a heavily incentive laden contract that will cost whoever signs him very little if he fails)

    I wanted the Jets to be interested in him, he was pretty good in the 3-4 ILB when healthy. I hope the Pats don't get him.....

    Because a dumb Patsie troll should be posting Patsie news on a dumb Patsie website not on a Jets website! If a Jets fan posts it that is a different story.

    I heard from a very reliable sorce that Tom Brady was intrested in Ed Hartwell to Play inside lie on his backside. Looks like he's gonna get a real stud pro baller.

    Mods, can you please start dumping these Pats threads? NE_PATS_FAN_54 doesn't seem to realize that he's on a J-E-T-S forum.

    Weather you like it or not, what the Pats do directly impacts what happens with our Jets. I have no problem with threads like this because it's smart to keep tabs on your rivals too. We have the same threads when the Dolphins or Bills do something.

    if you didnt care that the patriots are going after hartwell, then why did you open up the thread??


    seems to me that you must have cared at least a little bit because if you really didnt care, you probably wouldnt have opened it and spent the time to tell me you didnt care when you really do.

    i'd say there is a solid percentage of stuff on this forum that is patriots related. not something crazy like half but i'd say there is a good amount of patriots stuff on this board before i even joined.

    and why does it matter who posted the info?? its the same information no matter if a patriot fan or a jet fan posted it. im pretty sure any person can join this website, not just jets fans. i am well aware this is a jets forum and i like to hear different opinions from time to time. i posted this news because there has been a lot of patriots talk on this board(and dont try to say there is a lot of patriots stuff because of me, there was plenty of patriots related stuff on this board before i joined)

    Pats signing a free agent is news thats relevant to the Jets. I don't get the name calling and venom. Besides, I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Hartwell.
