Cole a terrific addition by the New England Patriots Dan Leberfeld

Yesterday, the New England Patriots signed former Jets cornerback Marquice Cole.

For the cornerback-starved Pats, this is a sound move.

Cole is a Bill Belichick kind of defensive back. The Northwestern-product is very smart, and will be able to pick up numerous positions.

Cole has a nice combination of speed (sub-4.4) and toughness.

He probably should played more with the Jets, but was stuck behind Kyle Wilson for political reasons.  Wilson was a first round pick and Cole was a free agent.
