    I was hoping the kid could put on 20 pounds and be someone's 4-3 DE.

    He did lack explosion in the pass rush from what I saw in preseason last year, but he's got the size to set the edge. What I'd consider if I was Pioli/Haley is to bulk him up another 30 pounds and move him inside to DE - which he has played in a 3-4 while at Virginia.

    It's worth noting he appears to have gotten a Belichick endorsement on his departure when BB discussed his skills applying better in a different scheme.

    Not that long ago it was just the Jets who were signing almost every player cut by the Pats. Now they're a forgotten afterthought, with former Pats more likely to end up with the Chiefs, Broncos and Browns.

    #80 Jersey

    Patriots waived LB Vince Redd.
    Redd, mostly a practice squad player who was active for a few games last season, was expected to add depth after the Mike Vrabel trade. He wasn't ticketed for much playing time with Paris Lenon and Gary Guyton ahead on the depth chart.


    I guess BB is satisfied with Guyton and Lenon

    For the sake of argument, let's assume that Pioli wont' poach Pats players that he nkows BB wants to have available. Then BB probably let Pioli know it was OK for the Chiefs to claim Redd and BB really is not interesting in developing him further. Which adds up to bad for Redd.

    They sure will. Whatever they pass on you can bet your bottom dollar that Cleveland will scoop up.

    All the more reason to root for KC in the West.

    Don't think Pioli can afford to think that way. He has to do what's in the best interest of his team : the Chiefs. To be honnest, BB would probably respect that more than just "playing nice". BB doesn't give a crap about playing nice himself - that's why we like him.

    I wonder what Todd Haley thinks of the Chiefs signing all of BB's guys. I mean, Haley's not even part of BBs tree. What is he going to do with all these signings if they don't fit.

    No Jersey Selected

    I'll be rooting for them, too.

    Nice to see a blue-colored post again, Psycho-P.
