After Stidham comes off PUP I could see Hoyer cut. Not likely though.
I could see Folk cut if he has a bad couple of weeks and the rook sneaks through to the PS and then does well in practice. Overall unlikely too, though.
More of a legal roster expansion plan than a money saving plan.
It also has the practical advantages of not guaranteeing annual salary for veterans Hoyer and Folk, since in week 1 they were not on the 53. It would make less sense to do it week 1 with a younger guy.
Rob is right, two free elevations from ps to game day active, then revert. Special covid rules. So after next week, if Bill does the same thing, we will likely need to decide on a kicker and also elevate Hoyer to the 53, cutting somebody else.
Overall this was not too negative toward the Patriots. The only hint of "done wrong" there was saying that he believes the Patriots settled on Mac a while ago and "disguised" that decision by starting Cam in preseason games. In other words, they didn't really let him know where he stood, to the...
Here are some notes on what he said (copied from a Facebook page for Pats fans)
Said he was "absolutely" surprised by his release at the time it happened.
Says the Patriots will win a lot of games with Mac at QB. Says "He did do what he came to do. He proved that he can be productive, and he...
That's precisely, 180 degrees WRONG.
Think of it this way, the amount I could possibly care goes from zero (I don't care at all) to infinity (I care as much as possible).
If I could care less, that means that the amount that I care is above zero.
If I couldn't care less, that means that the...

As an organization, the Patriots don't make excuses. That at least partially rubs off on many of us diehard fans. When Ray Rice is shredding you up the middle, you just were not ready to compete on D.
What excuses do Ravens fans make for the Edelman to Amendola double pass comeback game?
