    Well, this is a bit early. But I will presume the cuts of Waldron, Urban, Holly and Taylor. I include Waters. There is certainly room to add an OT, WR or even upgrade at RB.

    OFFENSE (24)

    QB (2) Tom Brady, Ryan Mallett
    RB (5) Stevan Ridley, Danny Woodhead, Brandon Bolden, Jeff Demps, Shane Vereen
    WR (4) Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Julian Edelman, Matthew Slater
    TE (4) Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Daniel Fells, Visanthe Shiancoe
    C (2) Dan Connolly, Ryan Wendell
    G (3) Logan Mankins, Brian Waters, Donald Thomas
    T (4) Nate Solder, Sebastian Vollmer, Marcus Cannon, Nick McDonald

    I know theres still Hernandez and Gronkowski but man the WR depth is so bad, its feeling like 2009 where Julian Edelman was the 3rd WR and thats not good. If Lloyd doesn't work out well or gets injured, the offense is basically vulnerable. Just jam the receivers like the Jets did in 2010 and Brady plays like crap.

    Shiancoe was reported released a few hours ago.

    I wouldn't assume anything.

    Holley and Taylor wont both be cut unless another WR is signed.
    Bolden and/or Shiancoe seem to still be in the danger zone

    Could they cut Branch, just so tey don't have to guarantee his salary? I doubtthere will be many teams beating down the door for his services.

    I, like some, am very nervous about what the offense will look like. However, BB and co. have been at this for quite some time, so I guess I have to give them some benefit of doubt.

    Looking at that receiver depth chart makes me wonder which offensive lineman is going to be reporting in as eligible each play.

    Either that or, maybe, just maybe, Edelman's actually made an impression with them. . . .

    That would be quite an impression, seeing as how they've been trying to get him more involved in the offense for years, without burning down everything else at his position.

    I think they just cut some players they feel didn't deserve to be on the team Week 1. Branch can't beat coverage, Gaffney is currently in the tub, and Stallworth just didn't fit.

    There was nobody of the caliber of Lloyd and Welker on the 2006 team. Add two TE's who are 10 times the threat of anybody on that team....

    so what happens when the defense does not worry about the deep ball and just covers underneath... just see tapes of sb 46 and the jets game 2 years ago

    Nobody worries about the deep ball with Branch, Gaffney or Stallworth either. Pray for Matthew Slater.

    So, Edelman is our #3 receiver after all. Any of the Edelcritics going to own up?
