    A longshot? I nominate that remark for Understatement of the Year.

    Re: Patriots sign WR C.J. Jones

    Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Browns in 2003. Was on and off their roster in 2003. Spent the entire 2004 season on the Browns' practice squad. Was out of football after getting cut before the 2005 season. Signed by Seahawks after the 2005 season, cut before the 2006 season.

    He has 1 accrued season (Browns, 2003), so he'll be on the books for $360k.

    Yep. Gostowski would have better odds of kicking a ball through the Gillette uprights standing on the 50 yard line.......of Giants Stadium.

    LOL Why do this to someone?

    Look we are going to sign you but you have 0% chance of making this team.

    Jones: What about on special teams?

    Team: What part of 0% wasnt clear?

    Don't get too upset. They only need him for practice.

    Re: Patriots sign WR C.J. Jones

    Let me make an official prediction.
    Pats will trade a wideout to someone before the start of camp. TENN is desperate for a WR with Givens still injured and possibly headed to PUP then IR.

    Titans were pissed that Washington did not sign with them. Maybe if Washington is doing iffy we'll trade him for a low pick to Tenn.?

    A strong possibility. However I would like to see a young wideout besides Wanker signed multi-year to the Pats.

    Re: Patriots sign WR C.J. Jones

    That, Sir, is a great prediction. Or possibly Gaffney or even Caldwell. I was looking at the Titans depth chart the other day, and right now their starters would be Brandon Jones, Roydell Williams, and Courtney Roby. Now that's just not fair to young Vince.

    These types of signings (Tom Sverchek, Ifo Pili, Keron Henry, Walter Rasby, Kelvin Kight) get me excited for training camp and the preseason.

    To be completely honest i think this coaching staff really likes Gaffney. I dont know why but i get that feeling. Same with Caldwell, Belichick told him he has a place on this team.

    I don't think 10 receiver sets are legal.

    Right now besides needing enough bodies for camp...it's getting the right mix of the 80 plus into camp. And that will only make the 53 better...

    Opportunities for young receivers with Practice Squad eligibility are not to be sneezed at. The kid has been on the edge of things and keeps working at it, who knows what will be possible if he can earn a PSquad berth and works hard behind these better known receivers who may not be here next season. Welcome aboard kid, kick some butt and learn from the best!

    Plus for the rest of his life he can tell stories of playing with Brady, Moss, Seymour, etc.

    He has every chance in the world to make another team roster by having a good showing here...

    ...and as of June 7th, there's no one who has a 0% chance to make the roster... anything can happen including good trades where we use some of our WR depth to address other areas of need, and God forbid, injuries.

    Quite right. We always have room for 2 wide receivers on the Practice Squad, as long as they are solid special teamers. He is competing with Kight and Childress.

    I thought we have a oversupply of wide receivers, but i'm thinking that maybe he was brought in to compete for kick/punt returns and special teams. His bio says that he was a first team all american return specialist at junior college so maybe he could compete for that role here.

    whats the big deal about him signing if he has no chance? He gets a chance to meet some great players..learn from a great organization and get some quality coaching while he can. i know it doesnt seem like a big deal but these things can help the kid a lot more than if went to a crap team and still didnt make it

    To me it's very possible that we're looking at switching him to cornerback.

    :confused: If that were the case what would keep them from just signing a CB? That would make a lot more sense.
