    I always hate to see him go.

    Wasnt that the year BB cut down to like 48 because he didn't have 53 NFL worthy players?

    Yes, I'm sorry. I was thinking of Moore's salary which is about 8k per week. My mistake.

    Either way, Salas was making about 3x as much as any other practice squad player on the team, which was my point to the poster.

    I hope Salas is targeted some today - he's got size and speed. I loved it when they picked him and this could be precisely the spot where he helps out. Branch is a favorite of mine, but clearly not able to get open like he could year ago. Salas could be used in the slot if Welker's ankle gives him trouble.

    As we noticed, Salas didn't get many opportunities as the #4 emergency receiver. Brady had plenty of targets in Welker, Gronkowsi, Lloyd, and Edelman.

    Branch clears waivers. I suspect he is on the shadow roster now.
