    Josh Barret was a Bronco Safety who, after being placed on injured reserve, had surgery to remove one of his Ts.

    Nobody is going to get cut, he is going straight to IR.

    He's a workout warrior. He's a big safety that ran a 4.3 at the combine.

    The Patriots needed a replacement for Crable, a young player with physical gifts who can't stay healthy.

    Special teams gunner when he gets healthy maybe? This move is certainly perplexing?

    Hmmm...can someone explain how this works?

    I thought if you stick a guy on IR you get to keep him. Apparently we snagged him from Devner. Can Denver snag him back if we try to put him IR? Why didn't anyone snag Brady when he went on IR?

    Even as a Sun Devil and someone who watched Barrett play his whole career at ASU, this signing does nothing to excite me. Barrett was consistently one of the most frustrating players on the field. Tons of talent and a great frame but generally scared to hit anyone and not very good in coverage. Not to mention how often he is injured... His senior season was a disaster.

    During the offseason, players have to clear waivers before going on IR. During the season, teams can put them straight on IR.

    So if we try to put him on IR, Denver can snag him back? And the guy become a ping pong ball for the entire off season?

    My best friend is a Bronco Fan, Barrett was his binky.
    I've watched alot of Bronco footage of Barrett particularly.
    His game is alot like Arrringtons.
    Relentless to the ball quicker than he should be, can deliver a pop when he's in position. Now that's where the similarities end, he takes wrong angles does not wrap up properly. He does have decent hands and I saw him rail in a pair of interceptions playing against scrubs.

    Yeah. That's why I think he's here specifically for a look on special teams when he gets healthy.

    So they pick up a guy, essentially to pay him and put him on IR, since he is about to have season-ending shoulder surgery.
    Um, hope it's a two-year deal.

    To be fair toward myself, I took Clayton off my 53 as soon as I heard that Edelperson might be getting reps at RB ;)

    Not necessarily; there's some sort of offseason deadline (I forget when) after which you can safely IR a player.

    This is why, if you might recall, the Patriots didn't IR McKenzie right away, even though it was clear he wasn't going to be playing at all last season, and he wasn't going to count against the roster before he was signed.

    Maybe Josh Barrett is Aaron Schobel's best friend.

    This was designed to stick it to Denver and twist the knife. I think that Denver was trying to sneak him through waivers or some such thing.

    I guess that BB is still really really PO'd at Josh McDaniel's little war dance. Someone should check to see if Denver did this to the Patriots in the past. Wasn't there a little dust up when BB asked a team to let his player go through waivers but that team claimed him?

    Skippy McDaniel must be beside himself. First Dummer-ville and now this.

    Maybe this is the first salvo in the Schobel War.

    Don't f*ck with Bill; he will get you back in the end! Glad he is on our side.
