Free-agent guard Dan Connolly, a stalwart on the Patriots' offensive line in 2014, is still on the market.'s Mike Reiss gets the sense that it's a situation where the Patriots basically have had Connolly test the market while keeping an open dialogue with him, and then they'll see if they can ultimately find something that works. At this point, it doesn't seem like many other clubs have stepped up to spark the process along, which puts it in a holding pattern of sorts.
