    A signing like this almost certainly has an upside for this year of the Practice Squad. We need to keep bodies with any potential moving through the organization.

    They have the roster spots so they might as well fill 'em. Plus you never know when you will find the next Andruzzi, Ashworth, or Neal.

    If so, he can take Ashworth's place. Obviously BB having Ashworth catch a TD pass last year sent a message that he didn't trust Graham, Watson, Vrabel or Fauria in the red zone. PROOF: Fauria is already gone. Look for the rest of the cement hands group to follow. I predict that within ten years not a single one of them will be left on the team!!!! You heard it here first :)

    For those of us too lazy to click the link, we have signed John Doty, who played in NFL Europe this year.

    And I believe he's an NFLE exemption...right??? Which would make 9..O believe... (Wonder of Box has any tapes of games..to see him???) ONE thing is quite certain..they Pats are looking for BIG guys on the line..all the new drafted and signed UDFAs are big monsters..Maybe making a wall in front of Brady

    According to Cologne's depth chart, he was the starting LT. I often fast forwarded through the offensive series to watch Ventrone play on defense so he doesn't stand out in my memory. I like the signing as far as another player with LT experience coming into camp to compete, O'Callahagn and Hand are both RTs or Gs. With Mankins pretty much locked in at LG, that leaves Light, Kaczur, and Britt competing for LT, too thin a line-up for my blood.

    I'll say it since nobobdy else has yet: "seems like a good fit" "or I like this pick-up". ;)

    No one has said "camp fodder" either.

    A little digging provides the story that in the 2003 www.collegefootballnews.com preview JR Jon Doty was projected to split time at RT with another player and a Soph stud had LT sewed up. Fast forward to the 2004 preview and we see the Soph is now a JR who stood out at RT and SR Jon Doty is returning as one of the bright lights of the OL at LT. You just have to like it when the kid goes into training camp and wins the LT job.

    This from the 2004 preview:
    I'm all for more competition with LT experience coming into camp, that was an area I had issues with since we had plenty of candidates for G and RT. The kid may be camp fodder, but you have to think in terms of Ashworth and Gorin rising from the recycle bin to appreciate that he's still scrapping through NFLE to make another Practice Squad. In Dante We Expect Miracles.

    The bad news is the Giants cut him after the NFLE season.

    This article reports the Giants signed an NFLE Guard when they waived Doty. Guess they need interior help more. The battle for Practice Squad will be interesting again this year.
