Patriots"We're on to 2015."

You can just picture Bill Belichick uttering those words behind closed doors at Gillette Stadium this week. Super Bowl XLIX is barely in the rearview mirror, but it's already time to start thinking about next season.

There are 10 players from the 2014 champion Patriots who will hit free agency in March, and that's not counting Darrelle Revis, who is under contract but carries a mammoth $25 million cap number. The Patriots will either need to renegotiate that or watch him walk away.

Here's my take on whether the Patriots should bring back each of their free agents (plus Revis), and we invite you to share your opinion in the polls below. Take into consideration the contract -- both in duration and compensation -- it would take to bring each player back as you cast your votes.

    Akiem Hicks' size -- 6-foot-5 and 324 pounds -- and power give the Pats a force between the tackles, but his success depends on how he adjusts to the system.
