Pelzman, who also believes the team could release LB Dont'a Hightower and S Devin McCourty to free up more than $15 million in salary cap space.

Our View: OverTheCap.com currently lists the Patriots near the bottom of the NFL with only $17.8 million in cap space at this time. They could make some moves in order to keep some of their own key free agents.
