    That's good news. Hochstein is a very solid backup for both the center and guard positions.

    Yea, I can't wait to see how they use him in that role next year.

    How about Hoch and Taylor running at you on the goaline? :eek:

    I hate Russ Hochstein, he's an awful offensive lineman and he can burn in my oven.

    ^^ This guy would be an upgrade over Butch Stearns on EEI when it comes to pure football commentary and analysis

    Good for depth - I loved seeing him in the backfield blowing up opposing LBs.

    wonderful news, very important signing imo

    he's incredibly versatile on the line, and will at least battle for the LS position

    That includes LS and both LG and RG. In fact, I think he's the only credible, experienced backup for Mankins. And I wonder with Lonnie gone if Russ will take over the LS job as well.

    The roster is filling in nicely. Sign a veteran CB and we are basically set. Bring in 10+ draft picks and let the position battles begin.

    Welcome back!

    Hoch is a backup LG, C, RG, LS, FB and TE. He is a key part of our goalline offense and is always active on Game Day as the backup to all the above. In addition, he can start if needed. Hoch is a perfect role player, a perfect patriot.

    I love Russ, but if he's coming back for anything other than LS, or just to create competition in camp, I'm bummed. Yates coming back was a bummer, but I've also wondered if Billy was nursing an injury to slip as badly as he did. I really want to see NE draft a late 2nd/third round interior OL who can play all three slots, this draft has some kids who could develop nicely as Neal's heirs.

    Why be bummed? I still think that we will draft a lineman and cut Yates or O'Callahan if he is good enough to make the roster.

    I am not sure signing Yates...Hoch precludes looking at the young...more competition..Hoch is solid inside...it's a 1 year deal. I like it...I agree he is a perfect Patriot.

    The guy has been a tolerable backup at times, a don't-miss-a-beat backup at others. And he's increasingly useful in sub packages.

    What would be amazing would be if he became the regular long snapper, but we'll see if that really happens. Paxton made, IIRC, a number of tackles; dunno if Hochstein would make as many, or make them as far downfield.

    Also IIRC, Paxton had a couple of penalties. Dunno if Hochstein would make those either.

    Good. I loved seeing him rumble through the guard and tackle positions to open up holes for our running backs.

    I gained so much respect for Hochstein after that game against the Cards last year. This guy is indeed the Perfect Patriot.
