    Berlin was inactive for the Patriots-Titans playoff game in January of 2004.

    He was active and had 1 special teams tackle against the Patriots in the Week 5 Patriots-Titans matchup in October 2003.

    I'm not sure why, but this makes me worried about Chad Jackson's injury. :(

    My first thought was: a poor man's Drew Bennett.

    I'm sure it is unrelated. Branch is still holding out. Maybe they've decided to move on from Branch (as far as having warm bodies in camp, EDIT). Or maybe it's just to replace the WR that went on IR a little while back. Or perhaps John Stone is seriously injured (he came up lame again in yesterdays practice). It could be anything. It's one of the thinnest positions on our team, so an additional vet just says to me that some of the bubble guys are more bubble than the people pulling for them thought. I think this says SQUAT about our ROOKIE second round pick (except that they need bodies in camp and he's been off the field).

    Well, I live here in Titans-land and I've seen Eddie play many times. He's a special teamer wearing a WR number. That's what he is. I've never thought much of the guy, although I'm probably more critical of him than most people around this city would be. I suppose he can be a competent fill-in or number 4 receiver. He has some athletic ability. But it's nothing to get too excited about. He's better than a lot of the guys the Pats are throwing at right now simply because he has some legitimate NFL experience.

    Unrelated.

    With Stone injured and Shelton on the I.R., and with open roster spots, the Pats needed another WR body.

    He's a vet, so that's a plus.

    That's the reason, you said it and pats1 has it in the timeline above - we lose a WR and a Special Teamer to IR, which would you be shopping for first in camp competition if you were BB?

    He could compete for the 5th WR spot, nothing to get excited about. I am pretty sure I read he has experience with ST coverage units, with Mitchell gone there may be an opening. Reminds me of Kevin Kasper but a little smaller.

    I've always thought of him as that - often get confused between the two, since they played on the same team.

    He's not as small as Bam, not as fast either. Other than that I can't really compare them as receivers as I've never seen Bam play.

    I say that because Bennett took off and Berlin did not. I saw a couple of games where he dropped some wide open balls. If he can do ST as well then there you go....we still have 2-3 weeks of grunt work left and bodies are needed.

    He is a JAB for our recieving core.

    Just Another Body....

    I would make no judgements about Stone, Caldwell or anything else. Now, should they make a deal for Stallworth or Porter, then - worry about Branch, big time.

    Never seen a player miss a season yet with a tweaked hammy.

    Anyway, weren't we all saying it would take half the season for CJ to get up to speed? It isn't even the first pre-season game yet and we are worried about his progress?

    Shoot, forgot Stone went down. This could certianly be coverage for if he might be down for a while. I figured it had to be insurance for somebody, it is not as if they need more WR bodies for our plethora of QBs to throw passes too.

    I figured Keron was in as a replacement for Shelton.

    Ask Pats1 ... and we shall receive.

    But the reports are confusing (like shopping for cold cereal in a supermarket).
    Does he have good hands ... or not?
    Is he rather slow ... or not?

    It sounds like he has average speed.

    The whole thing about the hands was that he needs to learn to catch the ball away from his body. It's not going across the middle which causes drops for him, but rather his techniqe in catching.

    Looks like he ran a 4.45 40:

    Well we need depth at WR. I don't expect much from him though.

    Sounds like he might be gunner material on punt coverage and a possible punter returner in a pinch.
