    Ah crap, after I just mentioned he was still there with the team from last year.

    Thought he at least had a shot at providing some competition in camp, guess not.

    yeah,

    i was hoping to see something from him too. He did well at Nebraska, but got placed on IR with NE last year. Tough break for him, I suspect.

    Is he practice Squad material if he doesn't get picked up by another team or just be done with him?

    considering they cut him this early, and they can keep 80, I kind of doubt they have much interest in keeping him.
    apparently, they want that roster spot for some udfa.

    maybe he'll drift on over to kc.

    It seems as if any drafted rookie that end up on IR at the start of the season likely to get cut the following season. This can't be good sign for Brandon Tate!

    Apples and Oranges

    Ruud healthy was a late rounder

    Tate, injured, failed drug test, was a late rounder. before injury, he was expected to be a 1st or 2nd rounder

    The thing with Tate, if he comes back from his injury, he could be a long term pass catcher with Welker like change of direction skills, and great hands. I'm going to follow this guys progress, could be very interesting !

    Do you think the Patriots should sign him?

    Oh wait, nevermind we only ask that question for releases of the other 31 teams....:)

    Let's hope that you are right. In addition to this IR thing, the last two WR's Patriots drafted in the second round didn't workout too well.

    A bit surprised...just a numbers game OR something else that happened...A bit different than Lua...AND others..Lua did play some in camp before his injury and he was released 2 months earlier than Ruud..(way before free agency) Another rookie on IR was Ryan Claridge who was a bit similar to Ruud. He was on IR early in camp and was released in July of the next year. Wish Bo well. BTW the Patriots are not even close to the 80 man limit...the draft picks do not count UNTIL they are signed....so they may bae about a dozen more bodies until then.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Seems like every offseason we're talking about "Don't forget about Player X who was a rookie last year we IR'd; he'll make good depth." And of course, Player X never really amounts to anything.

    The only rookie I can recall who was IR'd and ever ended up doing anything is Ben Watson, and obviously he was a first rounder.

    One turned into an OK returner for them even if he wasn't used in the receiver role all that much...and they also selected a decent receiver the year before him that they traded for a first round pick that they used to draft some guy named Meriweather...I'd call that a successful pick.

    Weren't we already up against the 80 limit once you counted our rookies? Any further signings would require releases, or would prevent us from signing rookies.

    I never understood why he drafted him in the first place. He just didn't seem like a good fit at ILB. With Mayo, Guyton, McKenzie, Bruschi and Alexander I certainly didn't see any room for him.

    This is one of the few thngs that really makes me go "Huh?"

    What, precisely, about Ruud made it better to take him with the last pick (in round 6) and then risk that Guyton goes with one of the remaining ~60 picks?

    I'm guessing it probably had something to do with special teams production in college. He probably brought something to the table that might conceivably warrant a spot on a 53 man roster. Didn't work out. Move on.

    Alternately, you could say that of the last 3 WRs that the Pats drafted in the second round, one ended up being SB MVP ;)

    No big surprise with Ruud. Never really expected him to contribute anything anyways.

    In hindsight, just like with Lua apparently BB felt that the newest prospect(s) were better than Rudd based on what little he'd seen close up before each got injured. We've seen him take years to judge guys drafted higher but the Lua and Rudd decisions were atypically quick.

    Actually they workout'd great. That was the source of the problem.

    Just so you know he was drafted in 2007 (6th rnd?) aka before Guyton and McKenzie so one could say there was room for him. I think I read somewhere that BB realized he should have drafted Guyton instead of Rudd with that pick. We will likely add another ILB/OLB or more to the roster anyway.

    workout'd

    Is that even a real word? I mean, it's a word because you strung some vowels and consonants together and I understood what you were meaning and all that... but... still.... :rolleyes:

    Are you by any chance related to Yogi?

    Why limit ourselves to bringing in only players cut by other teams? What harm could it do to bring the guy into camp?
