TULLY FOR YOU Patriots: Pats sign Banta Cain

By Greg Rak

After failing as a starter in San Fran for two years Tully, whom has one of the greatest names in the NFL, will be coming back to New England. The Patriots have signed the OLB just a few days after he was cut. Tully will compete for playing time at OLB in a crowded race (Vrabel, Thomas, Crable, Redd, Woods, Roberston). He was a pass rushing specialist with the Pats from 2003-2006, recording a career high 5.5 sacks in 2006. He could not cut it in a new Niners system and as a full time player.

I think this is a great move, Tully for you Patriots! He brings a pass rushing specialist who knows the Patriots system and allows for Thomas or Vrabel to be moved inside on 3rd downs, giving the Pats a more athletic front 7 and better ability to cover RBs and TEs in the passing game.
