Chris Price of WEEI Boston predicts the Patriots will let free agent CB Aqib Talib test the market.
Price expects the Patriots to prioritize Sebastian Vollmer among their own free agents, retaining the right tackle "either through tag or new deal." Price admits he's "not sure" about free agent Wes Welker. The Pats aren't going to overpay for Talib, and seem to consider Vollmer a more integral puzzle piece. They do not appear to be considering slapping Talib with the franchise tag.
