Patriots create some cap space by cutting Isaac Sopoaga

— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) March 12, 2014

He’s a big 3-4 nose tackle that could fill in that spot pretty well. We currently have no locks in our roster, As of right now we  have Byron Jerideau and Kwame Geathers . Both are promising players that haven’t shown much. What do you guys think about our NT situation? will picking up a guy like Isaac Sopoaga for a cheap price  solve our NT  situation temporarily or drafting a guy like Louis Nix be the answer?

Isaac is 32 years old and I know Telesco has expressed interest bringing in young talent, but I’d think having a veteran like Sopoaga could be beneficial for our defense and the young guys like Kwame, Byron, and/or an incoming rookie. Last year Telesco chose not to re-sign Aubrayo Franklin which the 2013 Chargers defense proved to miss.

Lets see what happens in the next few days till then Bolt up and thanks for reading.
