    Ominous signing as it relates to the walking wounded D-Lineman.

    Not good. Our DL was less than stellar before the injuries and struggled last week despite the monster game from Vince.

    I'm kind of curious as to why the Pats keep signing players off the street rather than promoting players from the Practice Squad.

    If guys like Cohen and Leonard are a better choice than Lorenzo Washington, shouldn't they take Washington's place on the PS?

    Good question. It must have something to do with their perception that others would then sign the particular player off our PS to THEIR 53. Playoff opponents especially.

    That's not the news I was looking for re: Wright/Pryor/Brace. At this point I just hope they are healthy for the playoffs (which they should, I'd think 5-6 weeks is plenty of time for concussion and Pryor's back, seeing how he wasn't IR'ed yet). Luckily we should be able to gut one out @ Buffalo.

    IIRC, if the team promotes the PQ player to the 45 man roster and are sent back down, they would need to clear waivers again. My assumption is that they don't want to lose them to another team.

    the DL is being saved for the postseason. when the pats play in the divisional playoff, they will have at 100%: wilfork, warren, brace, pryor, wright, deaderick.......and that's all they will need.

    they'll also have spikes back.

    Love will get the nod over Deaderick in the postseason IMO.

    Spikes is huge.

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong - but if another team tries to claim him off waivers that other team has to put him on their 53-man roster. If that was their intent, to sign him to their 53-man roster, they can simply do the same thing by signing that other team's practice squad player. In other words they don't have to wait for him to be released; they can sign any PS player in the league right now if they wanted to.

    Granted the PS player has to agree to go to the other team, but generally they will because the money and opportunity for being on a 53-man roster is usually a lot better than the money and opportunity being on the PS.

    Maybe it's one of those unwritten rules between NFL teams: unless I get your okay first, don't mess with my PS players and I won't mess with yours.

    So they cut one d-lineman and replaced him with another one. I don't know if that an ominous signing or an open roster spot. If the Pats cut a player at another position and added a d-lineman, then it would be ominous.

    Not such an "ominous signing" imo.
    This relates to DL Louis Leonard being released.

    If they sign another DL person without making a cut, then you can turn up the angst.

    Leonard didn't work, BB hopes this guy will.

    It may also be that Leonard was overwhelmed by the system/playbook and couldn't get up to speed as fast as coach would want.

    I'm not too worried yet either. We'll see how things stand when the injury reports come out, and as the week progresses.

    Washington is already on the team, why promote him. I tend to doubt that Cohen or Washington will make the 45 man active roster. Cohen might not want to sign on to be a PS player for a week or two potentially. He signs on as a member of the active roster, his salary (even if it is for one week) goes up quite a bit.

    If we can only get one of our injured DL back, I hope it's Brace. His loss was really noticeable against the run on Sunday night.

    The fact that they are adding D-Linemen and Brace, Pryor and Wright not playing in games is a problem. I'm optimistic re: Brace and Pryor but Wright's status is a complete mystery.

    In theory, if they were playing BB wouldn't be playing musical chairs with the D-Line.

    They are not adding a D-lineman. They are replacing one d-lineman with another. They have the exact same number of d-linemen on the roster that they had last week.

    By the way, is Wright getting his brain replaced or something? That must have been an EPIC concussion.
