    Somebody help me out with the final roster. I think I have it, but check to make sure...

    1 on PUP: Patrick Pass

    2 on IR: Tebucky Jones, Barry Gardener

    1 Traded: Patrick Cobbs

    1 Aquired: Doug Gabriel

    53 man roster:

    Eric Alexander
    Willie Andrews
    Tully Banta-Cain
    Tom Brady
    Deion Branch
    Wesley Britt
    Troy Brown
    Tedy Bruschi
    Reche Caldwell
    Matt Cassel
    Bam Childress
    Rosevelt Colvin
    Don Davis
    Corey Dillon
    Heath Evans
    Kevin Faulk
    Randall Gay
    Stephen Gostkowski
    Daniel Graham
    Jarvis Green
    Rodney Harrison
    Artrell Hawkins
    Marquise Hill
    Ellis Hobbs
    Russ Hochstein
    Larry Izzo
    Chad Jackson
    Nick Kaczur
    Dan Koppen
    Matt Light
    Logan Mankins
    Laurence Maroney
    Josh Miller
    Garrett Mills
    Gene Mruczkowski
    Stephen Neal
    Ryan O'Callaghan
    Lonie Paxton
    Asante Samuel
    James Sanders
    Chad Scott
    Junior Seau

    David Thomas
    Mike Vrabel
    Ty Warren
    Benjamin Watson
    Vince Wilfork
    Eugene Wilson
    Pierre Woods
    Mike Wright

    That's 53, but I didn't list Doug Gabriel... does he not count yet?

    Also, these 4 guys were listed on patriots.com official roster, but I'm thinking they were prior releases that I missed and patriots.com didn't update on:

    Raymond Ventrone
    Gemara Williams
    Zuriel Smith
    Earl Charles

    Deion Branch isn't on the active roster, reserve/did not report instead.

    My biggest surprises in red

    QB (2) Brady, Cassel
    We all saw it coming.

    RB (4) Dillon, Moroney, Faulk, Evans
    Some thought that Cobbs had a shot, but I think things have worked out for the best. Somehow, I always feel real confident with Evans on the field.

    WR (5) Brown, Caldwell, Gabriel, Jackson, Childress
    I think we'll be absolutely fine without Branch, if it comes to that. To be honest, I dont hold out a lot of hope for Caldwell. But I'll be very excited to see Childress and Jackson develop at players in the scheme. I think they will become the next David Givens and Chad Johnson, respectively. Lots of upside here.

    TE (4) Graham, Watson, Thomas, Mills
    Crush.

    OT (4) Light, Kaczur, O'Callaghan, Britt
    I'm surprised that Britt made the team, really. This actually adds a twist to the Gorin trade that hadn't really been discussed. Everyone assumed it was O'Callaghan who made Gorin expendable, but if BB was planning to keep 4 OTs, then Britt's performance may have had just as big a role.

    OG (3) Mankins, Neal, Mruczkowski
    I had picked Stevenson over Mruc. mgteich was taking Mruc. I lost that coin toss. I've got Stevenson as my #1 lock for the PS.

    OC (2) Koppen, Hochstein
    Never in doubt.

    NT (3) Wilfork, Sullivan, Smith
    Worth raising an eyebrow at LeKevin making the roster. Keeping this many widebodies makes me think that we'll be playing more 4-3 than recent history has indicated.

    DE (5) Seymour, Warren, Green, Wright, Hill
    Hill was on the bubble and beat Klecko for the 53rd spot. I dont see how he's going to get on the field, with the depth ahead of him.

    OLB (4) Vrabel, Colvin, Banta-Cain, Woods
    Woods is the feel good story of the year. Gay, Wright and now Woods. I like the fact that BB gives UDFAs a legitimate shot at making the roster ahead of his draft picks. College players will see this, and it'll make a difference during recruiting. Even thought MV was playing inside recently, I'm certain that he's just playing out of position while Bruschi heals up. Come Week 1, he'll be back at his natural position.

    ILB (5) Bruschi, Seau, Alexander, Izzo, Davis
    Alexander. What can I say? The stars aligned. I am shocked he actually made the roster. If Gardner hadn't gone to IR, he'd be on the wire. In March, I would never have picked him to beat Beisel for a roster spot-- and now, in retrospect, it wasn't even that close. Still, I dont expect to see much of him in the regular D. He's our new Matt Chatham and, honestly, I'd rather have Chatham.

    CB (4) Hobbs, Samuel, Gay, Scott
    Hard to say Chad Scott is a surprise with the way BB gushes about him. And Gay was never at much risk, assuming he was healthy. Interesting that we only have two "pure" CBs-- the other two are DBs in a more broad sense.

    S (5) Harrison, Wilson, Hawkins, Sanders, Andrews
    The surprise at S isn't who's on the list, as who is not. This is the fewest safeties that I've ever had on the 53-man this year. And the difference is the tough loss of Tebucky and Mitchell for the year. Guss Scott is probably gone for good if he cant win the 53rd spot away from Hill, who barely even practiced.

    P (1) Miller
    K (1) Gostkowski
    LS (1) Paxton

    By now, Gostkowski is old news. I'm starting to think he could outplay Vinatieri (and his bone spurs) this year... which would be alright with me, and would do a lot to reassert BB's "genius" tag.

    They must see something in Hill we don't. They aren't afraid to get rid of draft picks like some teams so.......

    He counts Branch on the roster, even though he really isn't.

    1. Four OT's is (and should be) the norm We especially need four since Kaczur is coming back from injuries. While I never thought Britt would make it until Gorin was cut, I had Gorin on the team. O'Callaghan took Gorin's starting spot; Britt took his roster spot.

    2. Mruc is Koppen insurance, pure and simple. He's on the inactive bench and is Player 52. He could go any time.

    3. Smith is a surprise. I had Hill over Klecko for the Player 53 spot, but keeping both Hill and Smith is a major surprise. Smith could be gone, and to the Practice Squad at any time. Apparently Hill has another year.

    4. We need another linebacker. But the linebacker could be Chad Brown.

    5. For me, the roster is complete as we start Game 2, and a couple of vets are brought in, with no need to guarantee their salaries. My roster had us bringing back Brown and Poteat (now to replace Smith and Mruc).

    6. I had Beisel over Woods, but another linebacker would be even better.

    7. Obviously (to some), we needed Branch and/or a free agent. Gabriel is a fine pickup.

    Is Ventrone on PUP??? I have seen a few places where on transactions they list Ventrone as PUP 8/30..It is interesting as he would be back when reinforcements might be needed.

    My surprises are: Hill and Sullivan

    I was positive that Sullivan was out when he was arrested. I guess I was wrong...

    Deion Branch is on the reserve/Did Not Report list and doesn't count against the 53-man roster.

    Branch is on the RESERVE/DID NOT REPORT list. He is contractually bound to the Patriots, but does not, currently, count against their active roster.
