Evan Lazar of CLNS takes a deep dive into the free agent quarterbacks and tries to figure out who might be the best fit should Tom Brady depart. Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston goes the other route and takes a closer look at Jarrett Stidham.
Bernd Buchmasser of Pats Pulpit puts the focus on Wisconsin linebacker Zack Baun, an athletic edge rusher who would likely project to a versatile off-the-ball role within the Patriots defense.

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal runs down the Patriots free agents one last time before things get crazy next week, while Ben Volin of the Globe takes a whack at filling the team's potential holes.
Nick Goss of NBC Sports Boston relays that Titans receiver AJ Brown would be very excited to play with Tom Brady, if the team doesn't bring back Ryan Tannehill of course.
