    At first glance I read that as Ventrone...lol. Guess I'm used to seeing his name on the roster merry go round...

    New England Patriots release A.J. Edds, Scott Vallone and R.J. Mattes | masslive.com

    Another former Rutgers football player bites the dust.

    Meh, all the Rutgers stuff is overrated. There are so many players on the initial roster now that simply have no chance in hell of making the team, what difference does it make where they come from.

    No Jersey Selected

    So much for the hope that Bill would bring reinforcements; instead, he's cutting guys
    more than an entire week before he had to cut any of them. This does not compute.

    I'm sensing some sarcasm but I'm not sure why.

    Wasn't so long ago that training camp rosters were only 80 players. He has to cut down to 75 by next Tuesday.

    Mattes was hurt. The other two long shots at best.

    It's good to remind the bubble players that the 'competition' does end at some point. We'll survive Thursday's Scrubfest with only 80'ish players.

    We do need some warm bodies on the OL though.

    I agree. We need a couple of scrub OL's.

    Somebody has to play backup OT. As of now, we have Schwab as our only backup, since Svitek is the starting RG. I suppose Svitek could play all game.
