My take: Roster spot # 52: Samuel will be activated for the Jets game, so there is no sense to keeping a guy only to cut him in a couple days. Roster spot # 53: BB intends to sign a DT to have until Seymour comes off PUP, probably Kimo von Oelhoffen, or maybe even Bobby Hamilton, both of whom were cut by Mangini. BB will sign one of them (or someone else) after the first game. The reasoning is that if Kimo, Hamilton or any vested vet is on the opening day roster, the Pats are on the hook for his entire salary. If they sign him after opening day, they only pay him for games he plays in.
