Lawrence Guy visiting Patriots today

New England has been the king of taking other people’s odd parts and turning them into something greater.

So it probably shouldn’t be a surprise when they bring under-the-radar names in for visits.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, Ravens free agent defensive end Lawrence Guy is meeting with the Patriots today.

The 26-year-old Guy has 6.5 career sacks (4.5 of them coming last year), but is a solid run defender and has drawn some interest from others.

    Guy can play both end and tackle. He’s a solid run stuffer and doesn’t command a huge salary. The Patriots need to replace Chris Long and Jabaal Sheard.

    “the king” ok dude. Get back on the wagon.

  3. Only 10 of Pats entire SB49 53-man roster were still on the roster for SB51 (and 32 had never been to any SB before) – that’s the kind of MASSIVE TURNOVER (over 80%) a top team has to overcome every couple of years to stay at the top for 17 years in the era of parity rules and why Belichick and Brady are GOATs.

  4. I believe even a modicum of interest by NE is going to boost Guy’s visibility/viability to other teams. Teams do watch everything NE and Belichick do because the Pats have been rather successful since 1999.

    Every off-season, the Patriots either lose to FA, trade, or cut players who were an integral part of the previous season’s success and then don’t miss a beat. It’s fascinating to watch Belichick and his staff at work. This year, he has to find replacements for Chris Long, Jabaal Sheard, and probably Malcolm Butler. It’s a fact, with a few notable exceptions, really good players seeking humongous contracts are let go by NE yet they are still”in the hunt” every year.

    Is there any doubt anymore that the Patriots will field a team that competes for a playoff spot?

  5. This guy is just a fringe player that’s been hanging on at the end of the roster with multiple teams for the last 6 yrs. Big deal.

  6. “Bum Phillips said,”He can take his’n and beat your’n and take your’n and beat his’n.”? He was talking about Shula but BB has taken that to a new level.”
    ******************
    Actually he was talking about Bear Bryant.

    Phillips actually said it about both of them on different occasions.

  8. Sorry if you kool aid drinkers don’t like facts, but this guy was a 7th rnd pk that’s will be his 5th team in 7 yrs, after being waived by the 1rst 3 and allowed to walk by the 4th. SMH.

    And next February, he will an integral part of the defense in the Patriots’ 6th SB win. Smart coaches know how to use their players to get the most out of them.

  11. I am not sure that the Patriots want to sign him. It seems likely that he will end up back with the Ravens. I think this was more of a scouting an opponent situation. Homework in March pays off in Jan.

    Um…Brady, Garoppolo, Blount, White, Develin, Edelman, Amendola, Slater, Gronk, Solder, Cannon, Fleming, Branch, Ninkovich, Hightower, Buter, McCourty, Harmon, Ryan, Chung, Gostowsi…am I missing something>

    ——
    Actually the NYT on 11/1/92 posted an article that included this excerpt.
    “Don Shula can take his’n and beat your’n,” Bum Phillips, then the Houston Oilers coach, once said in his Texas twang. “Or he can take your’n and beat his’n.”

    This quote is also accredited to Florida A&M Coach Jake Gaither’s evaluation of Paul Bryant as a head coach.

    But thanks for playing.

  15. To be fair, this guy was a nobody on the Chargers bench until he signed with the Ravens and saw a ton of time.
    Ozzie’s the one who found this diamond in the rough.
