    These two players (if they stick around) will be exempt from the 80-man offseason roster limit until the first cutdown to 75. These players (probably) won't get the Pats any extra rookie/1st year bonus exemptions.

    The Pats currently have 49 players under 2007 contract, and 10 near-locks -- the ERFAs -- to be added. So 59 minus 2 (NFLE exemptions) equals 57, or 23 shy of the 80-man limit thus far.

    We also get a Chinese kicker who will be in NFL Europe, according to the NY Times. I assume he is exempt from the roster size limit as he will be at training camp at least until the CHINA BOWL (dun dun dun).
