    That didn't take long - one day after his release.

    Nice to have the added depth at RB - if Sammy Morris is healthy all last season we might have had a different finish to the season.

    Re: Pats sign Lamont Jordan

    Depth & flexibility, good to have a little competition, will they all stick??Maroney - Morris - Jordan - Faulk to go with Evans.......looks good to me.

    Re: Adam Schefter reports Pats sign LaMont Jordan

    Alright so there's the RB competition. Who do you think he beats out?

    Early in camp it sounds like Evans is doing well with special teams and pass blocking. No RBs on the PUP and I doubt we go with five, so who goes? Maroney, Morris, Faulk, Evans, Eckel and now Jordan... (and of course, fan favorite BenJarvus Green Ellis Bruschi)

    Re: Adam Schefter reports Pats sign LaMont Jordan

    He's an awfully good #3 RB. I doubt he'll play much with Kool Aid and Morris stay healthy but if they don't, Jordan is a nice piece of depth to have.

    Re: Pats sign Lamont Jordan

    The great thing about the signing will be the depth. Jordan not always the most healthy back in the NFL will be able to share the load to ensure Morris is ok. I guess he checked out ok with the Pats. When healthy and his head is in the game he is a very capable running back.

    Well the chances of my darkhorse BenJavus Green Ellis making the team have certainly dropped.

    It would look the the RB will be Maroney, Morris, Jordan, Faulk, Evans.

    Not quite sure where he fits in, but good quality depth just in case somebody gets hurt.

    Quite a few roster spots for running back. I wonder where we will make the additional cuts?

    I like it for you guys. It strikes me as an under the radar move that can pay dividends in january.

    Re: Pats sign Lamont Jordan

    It'll be nice to have someone other than Heath Evans getting mop-up time carries. As much as a luxury as that is, Jordan should be able to keep our defense off the field in blowout 4th quarters instead of just conceding three and out with 3 runs to Evans or Eckel. Plus it adds depth in case of injury...I love the signing.

    Re: Adam Schefter reports Pats sign LaMont Jordan

    I hope he can play ST. Unless he can play good enough to take over for Morris and move Morris back to ST where we all thought he would be last year.

    Seeing Jordan and Faulk split behind Brady would be a scary sight :cool2:

    Jordan is a great receiver out of the backfield, he had 70 catches in 2005. But don't forget LoMo!! Maroney will be scary for defenses this yr, think last few games last yr and playoffs.

    Yeah, he would of been a nice addition last season when Morris went down. These coaches plan for every contingency. Good stuff.

    Re: Adam Schefter reports Pats sign LaMont Jordan

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    If they did sign him, they need to make room for him on the 80man roster... so who goes? Please not our buddy Lavdrim "Lav" Bauta again... :)

    If Maroney's short history of injuries continue, Lamont Jordan will have his chance to shine and contribute to the Championship.

    Re: Adam Schefter reports Pats sign LaMont Jordan

    That was quick. Reiss didn't even update his blog yet, LOL!! :D

    This signing says one thing to me. The Pats are SERIOUS about using the running game more in their offense. They have really put a lot of emphasis on it so far in camp too. Jordan still has to make the team. If he does, I think that he brings us good depth at the running back position.
