The Patriots have given off a few obvious signs they aren’t happy with their safety situation.
They worked out Dashon Goldson, Renaldo Hill, and Darren Sharper during camp. They haven’t signed any of them, but Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports the team is “unhappy” with Brandon Meriweather. (And it has nothing to do with his off-field issues.)
Meriweather wound up making the Pro Bowl last year even though he was benched occasionally. Over the last two days, the team has worked in Sergio Brown with the starting unit next to Patrick Chung. The team also has veteran James Sanders, but he’s been injured.
New England’s cornerback position is deeper than it has been in years. Chung looks like a quality starter. Despite the Pro Bowl nods, Meriweather looks like the weak spot of the Patriots secondary.
