    So... Tate is taking Galloway's most recent spot as a healthy scratch every week, or he's taking Galloway's early season spot as a third WR option?

    If you didn't know EA was Eric Alexander (and how could you not know, he's so popular here) you'd think by the title Matthews was also being re-signed.

    That could mean that Aiken goes to being exclusively a special teamer and Tate comes in for snaps. This is definitely going to be interesting.

    im not sure tate and levoir are techically occupying a roster space because they are practicing.. they have a week or 2 i think to decide to either activate them to the roster, release or IR them.. so technically 2 spots are still open..

    Yeah, I thought Matthews had re-signed Eric Alexander, and that's just weird.

    well the speculation was fun while it lasted. So much for a D with Mayo, Merriman, Peppers. With Branch, Stephen Jackson and Dwayne Bowe added to the O.

    Still not sure why these moves were made today. I have to believe they were pursuing a deal that ended up falling through. The new contracts for TBC and EA likely created additional cap space for this season...why do that if there was no deal?

    How common is it for guys that were PUP'ed to immediately be activated and not take advantage of the 21 day period given by the league? Seems like it would be a tall task to have two guys that haven't practiced at all be inserted into the active roster right away, doesn't it? Please pass the link...gotta see it to believe it.

    You can't redo contracts twice in one year if the player is still under contract. That's why they were cut before being given extensions.

    I doubt it. Tate probably doesn't make the 45 for the first couple weeks. MAYBE in week 9 or 10 is he pushing Aiken/Edelman for WR time. Levoir atleast has a year of time playing with the team, Tate is practicing with the Patriots for the first time this year, and as seen with Galloway, Lewis, and pretty much every other WR besides Moss, it takes some time to get into the Pats' system.

    I'm pretty sure both TBC and EA were on vet minimum deals, there is no deal that they could be given that would pay them less this year. Any new deals would be using cap space, not creating it.

    Because you can't change contract terms in the first 12 months. These were done to extend both players.

    And no, there is no extra cap made available. Both were minimum salary players. Aiken, TBC, and Alexander's cap hits all went up this week. (TBC and Alexander we'll know later, but Aiken's salary went up from 650K iirc to 1.15M)

    Most likely the opposite, eat up cap space this year to save on cap space next year.

    Same with Galloway Im guessing, BB just knows he could and should be playing better so he wanted to send him a message by sending his but home and not playing. Only difference between AD and Galloway is Ad is not going to get cut, at least I hope not.

    my guess is he was not happy in he's roll in the D and BB just sit him out for runing he's mouth

    maybe AD talked to ray lewis and he told him hey AD the pats are not useing you right your a LB not a S you should be rushing the passer not covering a TE lol

    I thought VIP members only were able to delete their own posts (other than the mods).

    They can't cut AD. They don't have the cap space, and theres no way to make the cap space without cutting other key players.
