    Someone tried to get this going in the "Cuts" thread, but it's different enough to warrant its own thread, I think.

    Right now I'm looking at
    Green-Ellis
    DeVree
    Redd

    though I don't think Redd will make it through waivers.

    Spann is still eligible, right?

    Yes, Spann is eligible.

    Redd won't get picked up.

    Green-Ellis showed some promise as a runner, just as Redd did at LB. I'd like to see Spann on the PS as well as Gutz. I hope they find some promising young OL guys to develop there as well-although I don't know who that would be.

    I noticed that DE/OLB Stanley McClover was waived.
    He is another high-potential OLB project.
    Hopefully the Pats can retain Redd, but they should check in on McClover.

    There are lots of young OL released. I would be surprised if the Patriots don't make a strong effort to bring in a couple guys they might have scouted but not ended up with in the draft. They have a decent record of promoting OL from the practice squad (Yates, Britt, etc.) -- and a history of paying above minimum for players they want to retain.
