    He's a safety who was with the Bengals for a few years and the Broncos most recently.

    Interesting they'd release Spann who knows the system, and bring in this guy. Guess Porter was no Stephen Neal....

    I think there is an eye to the change in ST's that we can't see yet. That unit could end up looking a LOT different than last year.

    So much for the Porter experiment.

    Re: Pats release Porter, sign safety Herana-Daze Jones

    If Porter is nursing an injury, this may allow him time to heal up and work on some technique drills before being re-signed later. Porter may also have failed the conditioning run and NE could just be saying thanks for trying, but its not enough.

    Spann has floated on the shadow roster before and can be brought back if someone else doesn't lure him, Dazy whomever is getting a test drive.

    Re: Pats release Porter, sign safety Herana-Daze Jones

    I think that you might be on to something. The Pats seem to have been busy rebuilding the bottom half of our roster this offseason. It was necessary. We lost a few guys to the Broncos, Chiefs and our special teams captain to the Jets. We have a new special teams coach too. Who is from DENVER. He might want a few guys that he's coached on the unit.

    Due in no small part to the rule change for the wedge I'd guess....

    Agreed, along with the new ST coach. DB's and TE's might be a bigger part of the mix now than the hefty's.

    Re: Pats release Porter, sign safety Herana-Daze Jones

    Following on the fact that Jones has time with our new Special Teams Coach, it should be noted that Jones led the Bengals two years straight in special teams tackles.. So that is something that gives him an up on Spann..

    Thank goodness we finally snagged Jones. Wasn't sure tomorrow's camp would be able to go forward with what we had. Smooth move by the front office.

    While Jones was a solid pick up, the real story is we finally got rid of the bum Porter.

    Well, he clearly didn't fit the Patriots way. I read that J. Porter had gotten into a pissing contest with the coach of the Jets. No way BB could stand for that. :)

    Re: Pats release Porter, sign safety Herana-Daze Jones

    Pro Football Weekly's transactions have Porter waived/injured, meaning he likely cleared waivers today and will be placed on injured reserve. It's still possibly he will receive an injury settlement though, like Hairston in 2007.
