    Bolden's already been activated, and GRONK's just inactive, so there are two open roster spots ATM.

    Who gets them?

    It sounds like they're bringing back Branch for one, but what about the other?

    Maybe there's a good punt returner out there. We could use one and it's not a big game plan position so he could get going fast.

    How hilarious would it be if Lee Evans was picked up and we beat Baltimore in the playoffs with him?

    Quick question -- why did LEE EVANS have such a precipitous fall from grace? Has he been injured?

    His tank is empty, wear and tear pretty much take a toll on him. Jags cut him in the preseason is saying a lot.

    Seeing as there is literally nobody that knows the offense out there, if it is a WR it has to be (aside from Branch) one of:

    Aiken, Kamar WR 6-2
    Ebert, Jeremy WR 5'11

    Gaffney is still suspended. Slater will also probably have to play more.

    According to Bedard the weeks off count towards his suspension so Gaffney can come straight in and play.

    Branch will take one for sure. Is Jeremy Ebert on the PRactice squad? Is any other WR on our practice squad?

    The 2nd spot may not be WR after all. Hernandez is playing as a WR anyway.

    Carried over from a less appropriate thread:

    Does one of the roster spots go to the recently released Ron Bartell? Just a random guess here - no idea if the Pats have any interest. Were there any rumors of him getting a look when he was a FA?

    McDaniels and him shared a locker room in 2011, but he spent most of the year on IR with a broken neck ... :nooo:

    Branch officially fills one. I'm thinking the other may be filled by a CB.

    Logan's a punt returner; makes roster sense. 5' 10" 193 LBS.

    I think he's going to the PS. They have an open spot and he takes the locker of the former PS member.

    Of course, I could be completely wrong.

    Probably but he could also moved to the active roster very quickly as we need a PR. Ebert in on the PS but never returned punts (or many kickoffs).

    My Jersey:

    Branch to active roster; Logan to practice squad.

    The Patriots like to have their roster (including P-Squad) set by midweek so nobody is behind in practice. That makes me thing that the final spot will likely go to one of Aiken (the biggest), Ebert (another slot guy), or Logan (dynamic returner), depending on who has the best practice / state of health.

    If Gaffney or another vet was to be brought in, it would have been today.

    If for whatever reason the Patriots do not opt to promote one of these three, we could possibly see Forston called back up, as depth on the defensive line is still rather think.

    Is Jesse Holley still out there? I recall he had a few moments during camp and could fill Ebert's PS spot if Jeremy gets elevated.
