    If you think we're happy, imagine how he feels to leave Philly for New England

    Is this to the PS or to the roster. Because it could have an impact. It all would have been a no brainer if the freakin' Eagles hadn't poached Salas. Meanwhile, either way, it still raises questions about Edelman playing on Sunday.

    FWIW, the Pats waived Salas to sign Markus Zusevics. . . . who didn't end up playing.

    I'm guessing if they were replacing Edelman, they would have signed Branch or someone who can make an immediate impact since, based on the post-game lockerroom video from Thursday, Edelman won't be out for long.

    My guess is they like the guy and decided to use their empty roster spot to reclaim him.

    hope he sticks.

    Could do with having a young WR on the roster next year.

    Thank God. Now we can stop comparing the 2012 draft to 2006-2009.

    Vs the Jets they only had WW, Edelman, Lloyd and Slater avail as WR anyway but I do agree that the signing makes me think that Edelman's concussion may keep him out a bit longer...

    Branch may still be injured.

    I don't expect Ebert to see a ball come his way, just like I didn't expect a ball to come Salas's way. Brady has to trust a guy before he starts throwing to him. Ebert probably wil;l see special teams play. BTW, how many receptions does Shiancoe have ? and he's been active for 3 weeks. Brady will throw to WW, Hernandez and LLoyd this week, IF Edelman is out. If Edelman plays, it'll be those 4 guys Brady targets. It takes quite a while before Brady trusts someone.

    On the other hand, I do like Ebert's speed, and obviously he was quite productive in college. Another former QB turned WR. And I do remember Ebert catching a few in preseason (dropping a few too).

    Delighted for the kid.

    considering how he handled being dumped pre Superbowl.

    hope he sticks somewhere.

    And love the Hair-do.

    Not to be facetious, then, but why did Brady target Edelman 16(?) times in his first regular-season game?

    Slater is also a team captain and a probowl level special teams player.

    You do realize this is Edelman's 3rd year right ?

    I don't recall-- did Ebert have any preseason reps as a punt returner?

    Even if Julian Edelman is able to play, it might be wise to give him a day off from punt return duties, and Wes as well (other than in obvious fair catch scenarios) since he's had a ankle sprain

    Actually, it's his fourth, and I was referring to Edelman's 2009 game against the JEST.

    Edelman was replacing Welker in the slot, and Galloway and Aiken were both screwing up on the field. Brady was pretty much down to Moss and Edelman as options in that game.

    FWIW, I watched Ebert pretty closely during TC and was impressed by his speed and shiftiness. I figured, "wow, he's gonna be a keeper". But then I also noted how he kept getting corrected by coaches on little things like what appeared to be hand placement, where to make cuts, etc...Also, he did take PR drills and fumbled or misread about 60% of them. I found it extremely interesting to see how different fielding punts and kickoffs was. The former seems to be much tougher. JMO.

    Why is everyone talking about him like he's on the active roster? Has that been announced?

    My guess is the PS, and even that could be temporary. This board and it's love of fringe players.

    You are right--could be PS, which would require another move (either release or call up). Also true that he is unlikely to ever play a down, but we love an underdog.

    Either way, it's obvious that Brady needs that trust first. I guess Salas never made an impression with the Pats. Ebert must have impressed in practice, because he was getting throws his way. I was rooting for Salas while we had him, I'm kinda upset we lost him, but it seems like the Pats weren't impressed. I'm hoping Ebert does a Troy Brown, I believe we cut him before he stuck w/the team.

    One of the things I noticed about Underwood right away last preseason (2011), was that he seemed to understand/know the play book right away, we gave Cinco the benefit of the doubt that Cinco just needed time, but here was Underwood making catches a week after we picked him up. Then we cut him towards the end of camp (2011), and brought him back, he had a few catches. My point being is, how can a street FA figure out our playbook so fast, yet Ocho took over a year (he still doesn't know it). I know Brady blamed Underwood for an INT (famous Brady/O'Brien fight), but he still seemed to know the playbook better than Ocho.

    Look how many WRs we have. If Edelman is out, then Slater is taking meaningful reps there. If Lloyd or Wes were knocked out, Slater might be playing most of the snaps. That's why...

    Karen Guregian confirmed about an hour ago that it is to the PS. He will report tomorrow. They don't have to make the corresponding move until he is here and officially signed.

    FWIW Shalise says as of yesterday Branch's locker remains intact. The concensus is he is still injured.

    Still have four TE's and Vereen could probably line up as a WR.

    I thought that when you signed another team's practice squader, you had to sign him to your 53?

    It's very strange. Maybe he was cut by Philly outright? Which doesn't speak well of his abilities.

    I think Salas was the best bet.

    They should have cut Rivera or white or something.
