    Re: TBC Cut??

    This really makes little sense at all. Perhaps making room for a trade about to happen?

    re: TBC's contract terminated (merged)

    This strikes me as a odd move, could there be something going on behind the scenes with some of the defensive players?

    Re: TBC Cut??

    Looks like Reiss just tweeted it. His contract has been terminated today.

    Help me out guys. Did he play that bad or had issues like AD? Or, do you think some resigning is on the works? Puzzling...

    Or maybe a strategy to get the entire D notch it up several levels??

    That's what I was thinking, but it only saves the Patriots $25,000 against the cap.

    Ever so slightly out of left field. Played a healthy number of snaps yesterday.

    Re: TBC Cut??

    Given the timing, almost certainly a trade on the way.... who could we be getting?

    Trade of Galloway for a LB perhaps?

    Re: TBC Cut??

    Banta-Cain was playing great for us. Something has to be going down, could we be seeing a trade for an OLB on the horizon? There has to be. Why else would you cut an OLB that has played well for you after a game which just saw Adalius Thomas deactivated? I don't know about the numbers, but imagine Merriman was on his way? LOL wow that would be awesome. Bill has been MUCH more aggressive without Pioli.
