    4.38 speed plus over 200 lbs and can be a return man as well, me likey. I wonder if him and Salas make the team next year. Branch and Welker (or Edelman) will likely be gone next year. Fayson has size AND speed, Salas is even bigger. Watch this video on Fayson, apparently ran a 4.31 as a high school senior !

    No Jersey Selected

    Why hasn't a QB been signed to the PS yet? Brady's & Mallett's arms will fall off their sockets by season's end.

    Last I heard, Chris Simms was still a coaching assistant with the Pats. If an arm is needed beyond Mallett to run the scout team, Simms is still only around 32 years old.

    Bringing in another wideout...I get the feeling that sadly Deon Branch's career (as well as PT) with the Patriots is pretty much coming to an end--fast.

    No surprise really--he just isn't doing squat these days (even in his limited reps). Seems to have finally really fallen off the cliff in terms of what he can do on the field.

    Doesn't mean squat if he can't mind meld...How many fast, quick young guys do wr need to see before we realise comfort and trust with Brady is what's really paramount? It's the slow guys who make up for it with precision and/or body control. Lloyd...measurables fairly pedestrian I believe. Branch, Wes, givens, Brown, faulk...give me the heady slow kid with sticky fingers every day while Tf'nB runs the show.

    I doubt we dump Edelman if he agrees to reasonable dollars. He's a valuable punt returner/Slot receiver who seems to understand his role in our offense. It's a read dependent offense so it does require processing ability between the ears, something that unfortunately Ocho Cinco never adjusted to. Contrast that with Randy Moss, just shows that Moss wasn't just a freakish athlete, he was also a very intelligent receiver.
