Send Patriots Reporter Jeff Howe a Question for His Weekly Mailbag

Send Patriots Reporter Jeff Howe a Question for His Weekly Mailbag This should have been the first week of NFL free agency, but you know how that goes. Since there's still no telling what will happen with that situation, all we can do is speculate, so who would you like the Patriots to target once that opportunity arises?

New England's greatest uncertainty in 2011 is on its offensive line. Left tackle Matt Light is a free agent, left guard Logan Mankins is unhappy, and right guard Stephen Neal has retired, so how should the Patriots approach that area during the offseason?

Pats running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was given his restricted free agent tender last week, too. He can speak with other teams, but the Patriots can match any offer. Otherwise, if Green-Ellis signs elsewhere, the Patriots will gain that team's second-round draft pick. Are you confident Green-Ellis will stick around?

And then there's the whole CBA thing. Who are you siding with, the owners or the players, and why? Do you have any more questions about this uncertain time in the NFL?

The Pats are also stacked with draft picks and could make some moves that will continue to set them up for the future while also making them better in 2011. Do you have a draft wish list?
