    Technically Mayo hasn't been signed yet, so once he does, they'll have to cut someone.

    The Pats don't necessarily have to cut someone. They could move one of the guys from the PUP list to the IR, which would free up a spot as well.

    Well, let's hope that's not the case!

    Not even that....from the ACTIVE PUP list to the Season PUP list..meaning they will miss the first 6 games..the season PUP does not count against the 80.

    Again, let's hope that's not the case! I'd rather see someone like Adams or Dillard cut than see someone go to R/PUP, a la Seymour last year.

    I agree...last year..there were some count issues early on in camp..and I really believe that Brown and CJackson were PUPed a lot earlier..so others could be in camp..other years, they have added to PUP after the third game..but I agree that is not a great option... On the other hand, if there is a player that really has no chance of getting ready in a month or so, PUP makes a lot of sense.

    I'll bet some rook or street veteran FA failed the conditioning test in a big way and they've already decided to release him and Adams was signed instead. Not necessarily as a positional replacement, but as a better use of the roster spot.

    Disable Jersey

    Rumor has it that Myra Kraft hereself intervened and forbade Titus Adams from having his jersey labled "T & A"

    With Green and Wright both on the PUP list they do need another body on the D-line. The scouting report on this kid is pretty good for a camp body, he should provide good competition and who knows maybe even surprise. Seems like a long shot on this D-line though. He does have good size and is thickly built with a strong lower body. He has good initial quickness and is mobile for a big man. Has balance and is best at standing up OL and crashing the gap. He has good read & recognition skills and uses his hands to get off blocks. He takes good angles to the ball and is a powerful tackler. Is disruptive vs the run. Very durable, never missing a game at Nebraska. Has played better as a shaded DT so far in his career. Is he a one gap or two gap player?? Is he disciplined enough to handle the Pats D? Can he play head-up on an offensive lineman? There are certainly questions with this player but they do need another camp body and he seems to be a competitor that will give the line some good looks in camp.
