    The third and final Reserve/NFL Europe Injuree, RB Earl Charles, is apparently sticking around for the time being. He is a ERFA. Smith was also.

    Ventrone and Zuriel Smith! This really pisses me off, those cheap bastards in Foxboro have some serious explaining to do. You cannot tell me this move was not motivated by Robert Kraft trying to save a buck.

    If by "pretty good" you mean "worthless in every way", then yes, i'd say he was pretty good:singing:

    I liked Ventrone, thought he might someday have a chance to stick at the end of the roster. In Belichick I trust.

    Ventrone didn't play a down last preseason.

    A lot of players look good against the opposing teams scrubs.

    Mrs B will be seriously pissed. She has a case of the hotties for Ventrone, whom I'd always considered a total stump.

    Didn't Ventrone win practice player of the week twice last year?

    Poor Bubba, I enjoyed the energy he brought to the game and hoped he'd get another chance to come to camp. Now I'm wondering if they expect more from Jones and Mitchell, or if they are eyeing someone in the draft...

    The same award Kyle Eckel won a few times? Sometimes you can practice as hard as you can but that doesn't always translate to Sundays.

    When did he win it? He was never on the roster during the season.

    When last we heard of Ventrone...

    A year or two ago whenever he was here. Eckel was the talk of this forum. Everybody loved his work ethic and liked what they saw in preseason. Apparently he could only do so much in practice because he was never going to beat out even Pass for the last RB/FB spot. Same can be said of Ventrone and the safeties.

    What's with the change in names to Europa? Why not NFL Germany, since that's what it is (oh, and Amsterdam, excuse me).

    No Jersey Selected

    They better be eyeing someone in the draft.
    And perhaps a UFA like Terrence Holt, or Michael Lewis.
