    Finally some depth on the line. Still don't get carrying 5 RB's though when we only have 3 healthy corners

    I don't know, at his size I'd hate to see him returning punts!

    Moore is Pierre Woods, with hopefully more potential. He needs to convert from a 4-3 DE to OLB, or is a sub package guy. In other words, at about 260, he's not a "lineman" on this team.

    2 career sacks, but he hasn't played much. Showed some PR potential at Florida State and played a lot against good competition there.

    So clearly we need to see Moore active in this game, right? Or does the return of Page solve the special teams issue?

    Either way, we NEED pressure guys for the upcoming string of games.

    I doubt this is a move to get a pass rush, I think it's directly related to the crappy special teams coverage. Moore is 29 years old, we'll find out if he's Pierre Woods v.5 or v1.5. I don't think it's a guy with a whole lot of potential room left.

    That said, I figured G. Warren was a scrub too. Maybe this guy will bring something we need on D as well.

    That was the joke, but 'PR' usually means punt return and not pass rush :)

    Not really a DL for the Patriots, certainly not a replacement for Wright. He's 6-4 268 and is an OLB in the 3-4 and DE in the 4-2-5. Derrick Burgess / Shawn Crable type in the Patriot's system. He was actually a LB in high school and a pass rusher at Florid State -- he played at 6-4 244 there. Only one start and 2 sacks in his 5 prior years the NFL.

    Poor Pierre, back to groundskeeping but at least with a few thousand bucks in his pocket. Must not have impresses on STs and in the PT he got at OLB.

    Hope Woods stays by his phone. If I was a betting man, I'd bet that we probably haven't seen the last of Pierre on the 2010 squad.

    I am concerned about Wright. If he can't go that does hurt the pass rush in a pretty significant way.

    re: transfer fee. Dale and Holly speculated that Moore paid the $25k.

    It depends on how quickly Eric "Roger" Moore can pick up the defense and how effective he can be at getting off blocks and causing some disruption in the backfield. Pretty simple answer for a simple question. If he can do that, losing Wright (our best interior pass rusher, for my money) doesn't hurt as much. If Moore can't do that, then it still hurts a lot.

    There's a 25k transfer fee? Undoubtedly the Pats paid it then. I very much doubt Moore could afford it even if he wanted to. And besides why would he pay 25k out of his own pocket when it's mighty likely he gets cut in a week or two if he fails to impress? The Pats must really see something in this guy. Or are they that desperate for pass rush?

    Hey guys this is what Eric Moore last accomplished when he was in the NFL. He used to be a Carolina Panther.

    I hope he's made some leaps and bounds improvements since then!

    Question for Miguel or other cap expert.....

    While it doesn't matter this year, what is the rule regarding if the team pays this fee to the UFL does it count towards the cap as salary or is it just a general business expense similar to pay for a players hotel room during training camp?

    So, Woods was replaced. I don't see the big deal. Depending on the health of Pryor and Wright, he may or may not even be active. Belichick does a lot of shuffling at the bottom of the roster, especially late in the season. For example, these last two additions may be more about 2011 than 2010.

    I'm not sure Moore will be ready for Monday, if he is he's purely a situational edge rusher. If he is active and in the game Monday, we may see NE's plan to handle three very mobile QBs whom BB wants kept in the pocket - Sanchez, Cutler, Rogers.
