    Cool! A chance for more peope to b!tch about Belichick blowing a vital draft pick (in a crappy draft class)!

    I wonder if they'll put Nunn in his place?

    Nunn is closer to getting a spot.

    Well, that was a wasted draft pick.

    I'm nowhere near "Richard Seymour trade shock," but... wow. Has there ever been an off-season like this?

    I doubt it. This is the beginning of a totally new Pats team.

    You're just a contrarian! This was a great way to get rid of an overpriced 5th round pick and get a much more affordable 7th.


    In BB we trust! ;)

    I'm disappointed that Lewis didn't work out here. I thought he was a very decent pickup...having watched some of his career with Philly. He was completely invisible this preseason. I can't say I'm that surprised.

    Not complaining..just saying that is two 5th round draft picks for which the Patriots received training camp fodder.

    wonder if lockett is on active roster? that means too many safeties now


    more moves to follow no doubt


    what an off season for drama

    Can anybody rattle off the recent list of players the Patriots trade for, that don't hang with the team very long? Even a team with a great record like the Patriots, seems to miss quite a bit in the personnel department. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

    Kinda saw the Lewis cut.

    another safety?, who is this guy? STs ace or something?
    Does this mean McGowan is in danger or does this take Slaters spot

    This means Welker isn't hurt and will play Monday night.

    Another reciever is coming in Hello Ocho Cinco or Marshalll!

    I had Nunn making the 53 over Lewis in my original rosters, but wasn't surprised when they kept Lewis. Now that they have Nunn on the PS, they're probably just using the spot to try out some guys and see what they can get.

    I don't at all like his attitude, but his talent is amazing. Moss/Welker/Marshall in a 3-wide? Holy smokes.

    UCLA Safety. Undrafted.

    Should be what Matthew Slater was.

    I like how this has been rubbed in Mangini's face. Someone stolen from their PS :D. Bring Nunn into the 53, Bill or Fat Eric will steal him from us.

    2007 comes to mind, but maybe for different reasons- not often you land Adalius Thomas, Randy Moss, and Wes Welker...

    And following on from my old post.

    I like the move.

    I'd have cut him anyway to keep Nunn or even Bubba in the cut to 53.

    Showed nothing. Done nothing on ST. Hardly surprising he's gone.

    Probably means Slater's gone for a long time, if I had to guess. Lewis was expendable anyways- worst comes to worst, we can always just call Nunn up. Hell, if that doesnt work let's just go grab Bam Childress from the CFL :p
