    Speaking of eligibility, I was curious as to what exactly the eligibility requirements were for PS players and found the following in Article 34 of the CBA;

    And for those wondering what the hell an Acrued season is (like I was), here's the definition;

    Which means Mills isn't eligible and neither is Kight (I think) as he was on the Pats PS last year and was on the Vikings PS in 2005. Anyway, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    It sure does seem like Mills wouldn't be eligible, unless section (a) ii applies in that he wasn't ACTIVE for 9 games... We'll just have to wait and see.

    Personally, I think its wrong to punish a young player like that... He gets hurt and IRed and can't practice, yet he gets accrued time and won't be allowed to sit on a practice squad to make it up?

    While I agree with you on this, and I am a huge fan of Mills, he did have 9 games in 2006 (before he went on IR and was inactive) to prove his mettle. Albeit he was fighting other injuries during part of this time. Anyway, here's hoping he catchs on with another team... in the NFC.

    The ProFootballTalk report made it sound shocking that the Pats cut so many day 2 picks.

    I'd say around here that's exactly what we all were predicting with many of them hopefully making it to the PS.

    This again reaffirms the brilliance of BB and SP recognizing that there were not many holes they were going to fill in the draft and therefore they "punted" many picks til next year's draft.

    Mills went on IR at the very beginning of the year. Not sure where these 9 games come from.

    According to the Pats website (and numerous other websites), Mills went on the IR in November.

    Any big RBs available? I haven't seen any yet, but I may have taken my eyes off my screen for a minute at some point today.

    Besides Pittman, I mean.

    Active list apparently means the 45-man game day squad, not the 53-man squad, so I believe that Mills is still eligible.

    Somehow, I can't see TPTB just throwing Mills under the bus, so to speak, if they can avoid it.

    I'll agree with the first couple of posters that Rogers, Q. Smith, Childress, CJ Jones, Elgin, and Oldenburg should be on there for sure. [Mays, eh.]

    After that, I'm not so sure.

    You are out of date... last year a third allowed season on the practice squad was added, as long as the main roster is full (53). (Presumably that's to keep teams from saving money by taking the 53rd player on the roster and moving him to the practice squad).

    So as soon as we fill out our 53 (and not until then) we could add Thomas, Childress, and presumably Kight. Mills wasn't active for 9 games last year so he should be good to go right now.

    I stand corrected. Thanks for the clarification.

    CJ Jones absolutely HAS to make this PS. He is dynamic. He is more valuable, in my book, than Binky Bam Bam.

    This brings up an interesting point. If the Patriots are AT ALL worried about adding the players you mention, won't they be more likely to, as quickly as possible, get back up to the 53 number? If so, perhaps something happens sooner rather than later.
