For those (like me) who need annual reminders on how the PUP list works, Reiss points out that "These players can come off PUP list at any time during camp."
"If they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us, to shake us from ... the values that make us who we are, as Americans -- well, it should be pretty clear by now that they picked the wrong city to do it. Not here in Boston. Not here in Boston."
—President Barack Obama, April 18, 2013

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck." RAH
At this juncture a couple of them could be days or weeks away from being cleared. Apparently they were interested in Shiancoe only his asking price remains high. That doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy about Fells, although due to his time with Josh he shouldn't take too much time to get up to speed if and when he's ready. They have bodies to replace Mankins and even Vollmer short term. The third TE no so much.
Not good to see Spikes and Vollmer there. Vollmer is especially important now with Light gone. Spikes had a good post-season and we really need him in our D this season.
He's already missed 12 games in his career with an assortment of injuries. Sample size is still small, but it doesn't exactly indicate a durable player. I just assume that he's going to miss a handful of games and hope for the best from there.
Not worried about players on the PUP the first week of training camp. Belichick frequently holds out veterans who are rehabbing offseason injuries or surgeries just to not rush them back. Talk to me next weekend and then we can get a better idea of who is really injured and who is just being eased back into it.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
