    According to the PR man at BB's press conference.

    "One transaction today. We did sign Todd Sauerbrun. Coach will be right in."

    ...

    Time to buy my Colts jersey.

    Mike Reiss: "Did you have to check out some of the off-field stuff and was that a concern at all?"

    BB: "Well, it was a league issue. So, you'll have to talk to the league about it. All that stuff is done on a confidentiality basis. Even if I knew anything I wouldn't say anything about it. But we're not really privy to that type of confidential information. I'd say talk to the league about it."

    ...

    Reiss: "Does he have experience holding?"

    BB: "Yes, in Chicago. A little in Carolina, too."

    Can't say that I'm all that surprised, it isn't the first time BB has taken on a 'problem-child'. If his (steroid) problems are now behind him, all I care about is whether or not he can punt.

    Does that mean that he will hold for FG/EPs here, I wonder.

    I would guess yes, since we've got a need for one. That may have had something to do with the signing, but I can't say that I know whether or not any of the available guys hold or not.

    I would guess no, not on a Friday pick-up, though he may after this week. Now we have both choices covered and can stop to admire Pats1's new jersey. :)

    Awesome signing. He will be the best P pats have had in years, since Camarillo probably. Could care less about his baggage. He's an f'ing punter. I'm pretty sure the Pats clubhouse won't let him get out of line. Plus, sitting on the ww for 12 weeks after being cut by Broncos prob. gave him a well-deserved taste of humility.

    And its not like the guy is going to disrupt any crazy-good chemistry on this team. In fact, maybe an a-hole punter is just what this team needs to gel. :)

    Don't know what if anything he knows or has observed but Andy Hart was on with Felger yesterday and he said he thought they would probably go with Cassel holding at this point.

    Please do. No offense, but BB is trying to win games here and ultimately a superbowl.

    I don't get the reference to the Colts jerseys. Can someone explain that?
