    Per Reiss' Twitter.

    They also officially placed McKenzie on IR. Once you factor in the Bruschi retirement, the Pats are currently at 72.

    Reiss: LeVoir and Tate officially PUP'ed

    So they won't be playing until at least week six. Certainly not unexpected moves, but we can safely give away those roster spots in all projections for now.

    I had been wondering why McKenzie hadn't been placed on IR yet. Saw this on PFT and was educated on the IR/Waiver system.

    I don;t think he signed until the end of last week (8/26/09) ( creative contract that gives him a chance to recoup what he lost being injured)
    so it's technically only been about 5 days....They might hsve had to wait for the league to approve the contract.

    I would rather have a center.

    I suspect the contract's general outline was in place before Training Camp, there was just no reason to move the process along before now.

    because I am not confident with the choices of Wendell, Connolly and Ohrnberger as our backup center. It would be good to have another choice. The normative player for backup interior linemen on Game Day is a grizzled veteran who has seen it all and can backup at LG, RG and C.

    Can't be. They got rid of Hobbs. All their CB problems were solved instantly. Wheatley has been nothing short of spectacular, and Bodden and Wilhite have clearly become the two best CBs in the NFL already. Once Springs steps on the field, New England will shatter the scoring records as the defense will not be allowing a single point this season.

    I think if we are picking anyone up at this point its to take reps in garbage time during Garbage Game (4th preseason). They will be cut before the stadium lights are turned out.

    I wouldnt worry. We had 2 of those, cut one very early and traded the other for a bag of balls.
    If we were in danger not having a grizzled vet, we would have kept Hochstein, nothing was preventing us from doing so.
    He was beaten out.

    I think Wendell is already an upgrade over Hochstein, by quite a bit.

    I agree that Wendell is an upgrade over Hochstein. It does not follow that there is no one of the over 600 players to be cut in the next week that would not be worth trying out for the squad. In your eyes, are Wendell, Connollly and Ohrnberger so good that there is no one among the 600 who MIGHT be an upgrade?

    Already??? How....and quite a bit?? THAT is incredibly puzzling..I really DOUBT he's anywhere near as versatile..PLEASE help us all with the "quite a bit" upgrade over Hochstein. I do see Wendell as cheaper AND in time possible better..but that is a long way than from what he is now.

    I can't believe that BB hasn't made a move for all those FA DBs just sitting there when it is clear that they are that much better than those four. I'm beginning to think the success was was all Pioli.

    Re: Pats place Tate on Reserve/NFI, LeVoir on Reserve/PUP

    He sure looked like an upgrade playing C/G in preseason. Does he get used as a FB, TE, whatever, does it matter if BB has it covered elsewhere?
