    I'll admit, I read this quick and assumed it was just another "we signed who? this is stupid!" thread and was about to jump on you... then I read closer and chuckled.

    Stapleton is very intriguing. He started at RG for the Steelers during there last SB season. Was IR'd last 8/31. Supposedly he is 100% healthy.

    Re: Pats sign G Darnell Stapleton and CB Willingham

    Stapelton seems to be the bigger deal because of our need for bodies at LG, but does anyone know anything about Willingham? Any potential there or another camp fodder / shadow roster type of deal?

    Re: Pats sign G Darnell Stapleton and CB Willingham

    If healthy, it adds another body to the mix at least. The more people we have competing, the more likely it is we find a suitable player. And that's all we really need, with four solid starters at the other OL positions, we just need someone who's not a disaster at LG.

    Could Stapleton be the first black guy on the Patriots offensive line?

    My thoughts exactly.

    As for Farnham, I honestly expected to see him on the PS. Oh well...

    No Jersey Selected

    I think Thomas Clayton was the first cut.

    Don't know much about Stapleton but at least he's a body to throw into the mix at guard.

    Maybe Farnham will become somebody else's Wes Welker. But we've already met our small slot receiver quota. Good luck to him. Glad to hear us adding more bodies at guard to compete.
