    I just read this at Scout.com. I guess we will know soon enough if it's true.

    Done deal.

    Scout.com has learned that RB Sammy Morris has signed a free-agent contract with the New England Patriots.

    Re: RUMOR: Pats sign Sammy Morris??

    does anyone know why Sammy would fit here?

    can someone provide a link if it's been discussed or just briefly tell me why he's a good fit?

    I don't get it. I was always under the impression he sucked. I don't know whether that's b/c he played for Miami or not.

    he's a good Kevin Faulk/Pass kinda of player. Maroney's the man now. You don't spend a 1st for him to rot on the bench.

    He's like Patrick Pass except faster and doesn't fumble as much and catches the ball better. So, not really like Patrick Pass at all. More like a bigger Kevin Faulk, but not as quick or shifty.

    If I recall correctly he burned us a few times in the 21-0 nightmare game last season. Or was that Travis Minor?

    I think that special teams might have something to do with it. He's supposed to be a very good special teams player, and I guess that he might be able to fill that short yardage role. But I think that special teams might be the main motive for this signing, IMHO.

    Re: RUMOR: Pats sign Sammy Morris??

    And he's played for both Buffalo and Miami. He's used to this tough division.

    I still think we're drafting a RB in the mid rounds.

    Re: RUMOR: Pats sign Sammy Morris??

    I guess I like it. All I know is that he smoked us for 25 carries and 123 yards in that disaster vs Miami.

    I still would like to see that battering-ram like #28 that can wear down defenses and pick up the 3rd and 2s. Morris is a nice pickup, but he is not that type of player.

    Disagree. Evans is not a 3rd and 2 back. He does not have the lateral quickness

    Re: RUMOR: Pats sign Sammy Morris??

    Are you kidding me?

    If we got 3rd and 2s we'd be sizing a 4th ring right now.

    How many times did Maroney get stopped vs Indy?
