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

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

    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.

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

    Trade of Galloway for a LB perhaps?

    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.

    Possibly clearing space for one of LeVoir/Tate? Not sure if that's possible or plausible, just throwing it out there.

    WTF ? From what it looks, he was doing very much ok ! It doesn't make sense unless another LB joins the group, Who might that be ?

    << Bill has been MUCH more aggressive without Pioli >>

    Bill has got to be pissed at the pathetic lack of pressure we've been getting in a pass-heavy must-harass-the-QB league. Nice to see something in the works!

    Some kind of trade in the works by tomorrow for a OLB for a guy to replace Tully?

    The NE Patriots are probably the weirdest organisation in pro sports history. Not all in a bad way - in fact 99% in an awesome way.

    They clearly don't give a rat's *** about what anyone thinks, anyone says... they care about making their team better - sometimes in the strangest imaginable ways.

    I liked TBC. I am perplexed with the move. But... it's all good. They won HUGE without AD, they've won with street dudes starting at corner... enjoy the ride.
