Weekly Patriots chat at noon today

Our weekly Patriots chat has been moved to Friday this week (it returns to Thursday next week), and will kick off at noon today. Questions can be submitted in advance.

The chat comes at a time when owners and players are making significant progress toward an agreement.

In recent weeks, a lead-in question has sparked some discussion in the chat.

Today's question: At what financial level do you expect the Patriots to invest in veteran free agency when it begins -- high, moderate or low?
