07:30 AM ET 04.28 | James Sanders found it easy to sum up what has been ailing the Patriots in 2009: leadership. The safety, going into his sixth year, said it was lacking last year. And so the idea in the offseason program is for some of the younger guys to emerge and grow into the roles so long taken by guys like Mike Vrabel and Tedy Bruschi and Rodney Harrison and Richard Seymour on defense. "You can tell over the last year or two, our chemistry hasn't been as good as it has been in years past, and that's something that we're working on," Sanders said. "We're working on it from now until passing camp, minicamp and, ultimately, training camp and into the season.
