    TARP to IR

    Jeff Tarpinian - LB - Patriots

    Patriots placed LB Jeff Tarpinian (head) on injured reserve, ending his season.
    It's another blow to a Patriots defense that has been decimated by injury. Tarpinian actually started in Week 10 against the Jets and had four tackles before sustaining his injury. He was also one of the team's best special teamers.

    Too bad.
    And odd.

    There wasn't an injury I was aware of, and the practice report said 'illness.'
    If it's an illness that was discovered that prevents him from playing football, could be serious.

    Re: TARP to IR

    But who does this open an opportunity for?

    Could it be?
    A 24th transaction?

    That's just too bad. He really shone in that one game he started. I guess that illness must have been concussionitivius.

    I hope we'll sign Eric Moore.

    Actually, they resigned Tiquan Underwood to the 53, and resigned Ventrone to the PS (his 18th transaction).

    Maybe Underwood can play LB;)




    I liked Underwood before the initial cuts, what is he Price insurance?



    Losing TARP sucks...

    we need LB's next game will we have Spikes back at least?

    Well, that sucks. Less so about losing Tarp, and moreso about Guyton seeing more playing time as a result.

    Eh. I'm not totally excited to see him against the Eagles. I fully expect him to fall down untouched rather than attempt to tackle Shady McCoy.

    When I was an unregistered follower of this forum....


    I REMEMBER all the HATE NINKO use to receive and I didn't get it??? The HATE was enormous... don't DENY it


    Guyton isn't a STARTER, That is the only thing I can support. I still think he is a good fill in for the regulars especially in some packages. The dude has speed. I like that :)

    Re: TARP to IR

    No, he really isn't.

    Guyton wouldn't be on an NFL roster, if it weren't for the fact that our LB corp is so depleted.

    Re: TARP to IR

    Yet, he still can't cover even the worst of TEs. Speed is great if the player could actually play the game of football. But since Guyton can't it is useless.

    I have never seen a softer football player in my life than Gary Guyton.

    Re: TARP to IR

    the patriots arent going to ever cut a player they still value when they can simply IR them instead. whether tarpinians injury is truly season ending or not is irrelevant, the patriots needed his roster spot, IRing him allows them to keep him around for next year and continue working with the team, outright releasing a guy allows someone else to swoop in and take them away from you.

    I hope his injury isnt serious, but it really could be serious or it might just not be a huge deal, the patriots might figure they have seen the peak of his growth at this point and it isnt enough, by IRing him for something silly like a headache, they keep him around and also allows them to add someone else to the 53, Free agent deep prospects like Ventrone, Tarpinian and BJGE (as couple of years ago) hold alot of flexibility because their contract isnt huge money and if you make semi-shady moves like this, you can keep them in your system even though they are not on your 53, the patriots have been masters of this for years, last year they probably had 15+ guys on IR and guys such as josh barrett they picked up off of waivers and immediately IRed him, that is really all you need to know.
