    Will Ebert make it! :eek:

    Branch, you earned the #3 WR role. Hopefully you don't run out of gas this year because we will need you at critical times. With limited snaps, Branch should be more effective.

    Doubt it....but Ebert and the practice squad guy they just picked up will get alot of reps vs the Giants JAGs

    I have wondered if they would keep 4 TE maybe wait for Shinacoe to get healthy, they are playing a 2TE base and they can use a TE to flex in the backfield as a FB role use the wham block ect.

    I never thought that both Gaffney and Stallworth would be cut. I will guess that Edleman isn't on the bubble.

    Sounds like he's the #6 if there is one. Well, or the new Taylor guy, but he's probably just a body for the last preseason game.

    Notable: Ballard placed on PUP, not IR.

    Most likely going to IR via PUP. IIRC in this way he isn't exposed to waivers.

    I suspect this maneuver allows the New England Patriots to keep five running backs on the roster:

    Woodhead
    Vereen
    Ridley
    Bolden
    Demps

    Maybe Gaffney will end up on injured reserve?

    Gaffney and Stallworth just more Shadow Roster candidates?

    No 3 guys were IR's Gaffney wasn't IR'd/

    I felt they were going to keep the 5 RB with no FB.
