    The day that the Pats IRed Edelman, they also released Shiancoe. That gave them two roster spots to fill. One was filled by re-signing Branch. Have they added anyone to take Shiancoe's spot?

    holding it open to move the new PR up from the PS is my guess

    Agree, I suspect they are checking him out in practice to assure themselves of his judgment and unlikelihood of turning the ball over to SF deep in our territory.

    Wes is unlikely to turn it over, but I'm sure the Pats would like to reduce his wear and tear.

    Develin was activated prior to last game.

    Except that isn't correct since Cunningham is suspended. Cunningham's suspension started on Game 12. It still has Games 13, 14 and 15, to go before he can return.

    So there is still one spot..

    Maybe Bob Kraft will have a stadium promotion, like a Papa Ginos Ultimate Upgrade and a fan from section 305 will be upgraded to the active roster... :)

    It would have to be someone for the 46 man roster as just putting someone on the 53 without having a need for them on the 46 is just bookkeeping.

    So, PR is a thought, but WR in general is thin Lloyd, Welker, Branch, Slater. Maybe the PR/WR guy is a fit, but they have another WR on the practice squad too like Jeremy Ebert who was a draft pick and with us for training camp. Or Kamar Aiken who is BIG at 6'2" and 213 pounds.

    SF 49ers have a very physical secondary and that isn't always great for us with Brandon Lloyd having difficulty with aggressive press coverage. It won't bother Welker, but Branch might struggle to get off the line. We don't have anyone to catch the quick-out screen like Edelman used to do. Maybe Kamar Aiken is that guy.

    It'll probably be a fan from section 305 though. :)

    There is no need to promote to someone to the 53 if he will be inactive. Adding a special teamer like Tarpinian for a game could make sense.

    Yates says they only have 52 right now:

    I would guess that the discrepancy has to do with Jermaine Cunningham's suspension, which still has 2 games to go.

    I believe teams have until 4 PM today to activate someone in order to make them eligible to play tomorrow, though again, I'm not 100% sure. It seems possible that the Pats may go with who they currently have this week, unless the promote someone from the PS at the last minute.

    With Brace hurting and Cunningham suspended... I could see them activating a defensive lineman too. Marcus Forston perhaps.

    I wonder if BB still has Warren on speed dial.

    My first reaction was the punt returner - but I guess we will see.

    I hope you are right, and also hope he can take kickoffs as well

    Deadline passed. Nothing on the transaction wire today. We will be at 52 through tomorrow's game.

    Not happy with 83 returning punts.
    Maybe it's just me.

    What deadline is this? Didn't we activate Bolden just hours before the game last week?

    Not sure it the case, but Bolden was not on the Practice Squad.
