Aaron Hernandez is ding everything to get ready for the Jets. However, we know from the last two games that the NE offense is not the same without a second TE. Even Gronk poses a greater challenge for opponents when paired with Hernandez vs. being subject to double coverage when alone. And please, using makeshift TEs like Thomas Welch does not fool defenses because he is not a threat to catch the occasional ball. Which leads me to believe that the cuts which BB most regrets are those that involve Yeatman -- who was a genuine blocker and a pass catching TE (enough to make defenses respect his potential). Lee Smith, drafted in the 5th round, was competing with Yeatman -- a competition Yeatman seems to have won. In any event, if BB could redo his choices, not keeping three TEs was a gamble too many. Warren who made the 53 was cut on the eve of the season. Tarpinian was cut later. Alas, by that time Yeatman and Smith had been grabbed by Miami and Buffalo.
