    Pats have announced that Holt was placed on IR, Ventrone waived. Also re-sign Buddy Farnham and add OL Bryan Simmons.

    Interesting.

    When did Holt get banged up?

    Look for Ventrone to be IR'd once he clears waivers.

    Miguel, is that Brian Simmons the OG from Oklahoma? Interesting if it is. Came out this year after a solid career and a strong pro day but went undrafted because a foot was deformed, I believe. One of his feet is a size 15 and one is a size 18, I think. I think the troubled foot grew down and in. I'm sure I have the details a little mixed up here, but if this is the kid, I recall him being a hardworking, intelligent, effective OG and I would be glad to see the kid get a shot here.

    Who is OL Bryan Simmons? I was hoping for LB Brian Simmons.

    Interesting. Maybe this sheds some light on why he was having a non-descript camp. Stay tuned.

    Too bad for Holt. I really wanted to see him on the field this season catching passes from T. Brady. That sucks!

    I think we all wanted to see Holt catching passes from Brady.

    This definitely opens the door for Price and Tate to really step up..

    That sucks... Now I really hope to see Tate a lot more. He should be great.

    Re: Holt done for season, put on IR

    Not everyone was fully convinced he'd make the cut anyway. Next man up.

    Interesting that they put him on IR. Chances that he ends up retiring?

    I was really looking forward to him being on the field catching passes from T. Brady, but ah well. We have to move forward with the young talent we have on the team now.

    According to Schefter and Reiss, Holt has a knee injury that requires surgery. This could be the end of Holt's career.

    So he's basically "Assistant coach - receivers"

    why was he put on IR and not cut, if he has only a 1-year contract?

    You can't cut a vested veteran who suffers an injury during practice.
