Report: Pats reach deal with DT Leonard
This is another UDFA, so maybe our luck continues.
Uh oh.........could that mean bad news on Mike Wright or Myron Pryor?
A Fresno State Product, interesting.. guess he and Logan have banged heads a few times..
Must mean that Pryor, Brace or Wright could be seriously nicked up and go on IR.
He has experience in RACs D so hopefully he'll pick up things quickly.
Don't like the sound of this one!
Interesting, but not really deserving of it's own thread...
AdamSchefter To help replace injured first-round pick Brandon Graham, the Eagles will sign former Patriots LB Derrick Burgess today.
minor adjustments in order to be as stout versus the run as possible by playoff time. at this point, I think the pats may give some players a week off by inactivating them even though they could play.
Burgess? Really??? I thought he had been shipped off to the taxidermy shop.
Where is Adalius Thomas?? Find it hard to believe that no one picked him up..

Interesting from Rapoport:
"Ya know, Caserio seemed a little lukewarm on DL Eric Moore today, too. That was surprising. Maybe he goes..."
That is exactly what I was thinking, although I thought G. Warren was also banged up a good bit.
Don;t we already have DE Washington from Alabama on the PS?
The guy walks in and in 20 snaps nets 4 tackles, a sack and a FF and is cut? Would assume that they would give the kid another game.
Yeah, me too. I think Rapoport is out on a limb on this one.
Maybe I am just trying to be optimistic but it might just be the cumulation of three injuries at one spot and not neccessarily the severity of the injuries.
Wouldn't shock me, personally - we gave Crable a similar "audition" in the Pittsburgh, and the results looked similarly decent on paper. But on the film, they must've had problems with his technique, effort, etc.
I just signed this guy in Madden to the Pats not two days ago, to be Vince's backup. I have Brace at DE. I can read Belichick's mind.
Maybe he was being sarcastic?
The DL is banged up. Even 7 roster spots (instead of the more normal six) seems to insufficient.
However, it seems that Leonard is competition for Love rather than Eric Moore. We certainly do need a backup for Wilfork.
Even though he has been signed, there hasn't been a roster move.. yet... Reiss says Caserio hinted that there might be some roster movements soon.
Well, now Rapoport tweets:
I think Moore stays. Caserio said "Itâ€™s been 1 game. Heâ€™s made the most of (chances)." Things change in a hurry on a week-to-week basis.
Turns out that he actually had a workout with the Pats last Saturday before the Pats took off for Chicago.
BTW - Kid is 6'4 5/8" tall.. 320 lbs (give or take)..
Kid is a run-stuffer more than a pass rusher..
True but Moore accomplished more in 20 snaps than Crable did in 3 years.
But who did you cut that's what we want to know?
Also, FYI, Brace rates much higher at DT than DE on Madden. I know I should leave it as-is, but I moved Cunningham to DE and he's a star in the making.
If Wright or Pryor are not IR'd maybe Ohrnberger or Clayton go. Ohrnberger is behind Wendell and Ojinnaka with the Pats also having G Austin on PS, and although a T Maneri is also on PS so the numbers are there OL wise. With Clayton we seem to be carrying one RB too many with an eye towards the future w/Morris and Faulk having expiring contracts after this season.
Unless I missed something, there HAS to be a roster move today, you can't just sign a guy and not put him on the 53. (I don't believe he is is eligible for the PS.)
Do you want to tel Rappy they play two different positions, or should I? 330 lbs is 3-4 D Line. 268 is de/olb.
Drew Boylhart's take on Leonard
Good points. We have some flexibility.
I jumped the gun. He hasn't signed yet- I misread the original news release, but I decided not to revise the original post because he's passed his physical and who wouldn't want to sign with a 11-2, red hot team?
