    wow, he must have really impressed the coaching staff, although he probably isn't going to be active for a lot of games.

    Very surprised at that.

    Thought Murrell would have been resigned.

    Interesting...

    So now the decision looks like this:

    Is James, Green-Ellis, and a 4th > Maroney, Green-Ellis, and a 6th?

    Time will tell.

    Interesting that he has ascended so quickly.

    Here's the basic data and summary on him. He was projected to go in the final round of the draft, or go undrafted.


    A Colts fan page did a fairly good assessment of his skills prior to his release.

    I seriously thought the move would have been to sign a recently released Jets player, like Danny Woodhead, drain all his knowledge and then cut him after this week.

    I don't think we need that against the Jets. We've seen enough of them, and had no trouble with them 2nd game of last year.

    That's true. Plus it doesn't take a genius to figure out that offense.

    He may be in there as a blocker, because he doesn't have the explosiveness that his cousin had. I wouldn't be surprised to see this because we've had problems using Dan Connolly as FB, not because of Connolly but because of Wendell who takes Connolly's place at LG. He keeps getting blown off the line.

    I think it's cousin, not brother.

    Down the road you could be right, but I'd be surprised if he was active against the Jets this week. With the other four backs healthy, I don't think we're going to carry five, especially against a team we're not going to run much against.

    The Patriots are expected to sign RB Javarris James off their practice squad to replace Laurence Maroney, according to Scout.com's Adam Caplan.
    This would be a confusing move. The Patriots already have four healthy running backs on the roster and James is a fringe talent at best. Edgerrin's brother is not in the mix for carries, even if he is active Sunday.

    I thought it was going to be Mankins to take Moroney's spot

    I think this has been the wishful thinking on most people's part. Still doesn't mean a Mankins deal isn't possible... I'm sure they can think of someone else to part with to make room for him if necessary.

    Disable Jersey

    Seems strange. Why put him on the 53 with 4 supposedly healthy RBs? If he's game inactive Sunday this move makes no sense, so he must be gonna play.

    He may be in there as a temporary roster filler.

    This. Anybody that has watched Javarris during his time at The U knows that he probably shouldn't be depended on to be a productive runner at any point.

    In last year's 31-14 win over the Jets, 4 of the first 10 Pats plays from scrimmage were handoffs to Maroney. Three were passes to the right flat -- all completed, incidentally. Two were deep balls to Moss. The other play was a direct snap to Edelman.

    They handed off to Maroney 40% of the time during their first two drives. In fact, Maroney had 22 carries in that game. Now Maroney's gone.

    If James has been promoted, its news to him, per Reiss.
