I have seen a lot of articles, stories, threads, posts saying the Pats will not keep a FB. I personally disagree, my feeling is that Fletchers injury really solidified Larsen making the roster. Larsen is a BB type player, he fills several key roles on the Patriots. True blocking FB. 3rd TE blocking ability. Ability to catch the ball out of the back field with knowledge to JM's offensive scheme. Backup 4-3 LB (mainly inside). Ability to fill Fletchers role ST. If Daniel Feils and Dane Fletcher were both healthy I'd suggest otherwise because then you have Feils to block as a FB, the 3rd TE for receiving/blocking and obviously Fletcher is a superior LB to Larsen. I know Tarp and White are BB and fan favorites but roles are basically the same, more of cover linebackers and ST players. I see only one of them making it and Larsen being our 6th LB at least till Feils comes off PUP mid season.
