We are definitely giving folks a chance inside the front seven.
1) we have Guy.
2) We have Cowart and Jennings.
3) And we have LB's and DT's that few have even heard of.
There is a hard limit to how many db's you can have helping the front seven, especially against a team with a good QB and...
I don't even pay much attention to the bottom of the roster until near game time. At that point I know who is on the roster. Is it just me? In the past, many have agonized about Roster position 51, 52 and 53 and who to put on IR to make room. And yes, this year, we can activate a couple of...
Patriots.com lists the starters as Shilique Calhoun, Ja'Whaun Bentley, and Brandon Copeland, with youngsters Joejuan Williams and Anfernee Jennings in the wings (plus two rookies).
Seeing as how (I think?) none of these guys have even started a game with us, this is really going to be one of...
New England Patriots News 9-06, Initial 53-man Roster Formed
Good morning, here is your Sunday Patriots news 09-06 and AFC East notes this week.
(If you enjoyed this entry - hit the Thumbs Up/If not, hit the Thumbs down in this thread)
No one makes more transactions in the few days before and after the "final" cut to 53. he will make transactions all year. However, i expect lots between now and game time for Game 2. We could help at so many positions: WR, OT, TE, DT, LB, K.
Hopefully, a mod will see fit to sticky this thread so that we don't have to keep searching for it if it goes off the top page and that the 2019/2020 thread will be locked.
NOTE: This year we have a NEW roster move. The opt-out due to Covid. The player's contract will TOLL (meaning it won't...
Does anyone have a pointer to a current list of all the NE players who became free agents at the end of the season and what their current statuses are? Ideally it would be something like:
John Doe - still unsigned
Richard Roe - signed with NE for 3 years
Joe Smith - signed with XXX for 5 years
I think that we generally have our minimum numbers at the various positions and are having disagreements only with regard the very bottom of the roster. What are your priorities? In the end, especially for the last 3 positions, what matters is choosing the best player, independent of position...
Any insight on why Dawson hasn't seen the field since coming back from IR? I know round drafted doesn't matter: Crossen(7th) Dawson(2nd), but it just makes me wonder the reality of the situation. Is it a matter of being a better player at this point, or has the injury taken away a chance for a...
I'm gonna guess WR Damoun Patterson, who's on the Parctice Squad right now. At least he's been exposed to the system for a while. I can't imagine them signing a street FA WR this late in the season.
Of course the spot could be taken by adding to a different position.
Patterson not at practice today either?!
On Zolak show they are reporting Patterson is not at practice either...for unknown reason..and Matthew Slater is working out with the WRs....god let this be wrong!!!:confused:
2018 week 16 vs bills

sky is falling
If we lose a game, will the #1 need be to replace whoever we think contributed to that loss?
I submit that (absent injuries), we will NOT get a great amount of new information with regard to 2019 needs.
In addition to re-signing or tendering Brown, McCourty, Gordon and Jones, we need new...
Yes, we need to tender J Jones, and re-sign Jason McCourty. Given that, we go into the offseason with a strong unit.
CB: Gilmore, J McCourty, Jackson, Jones, Dawson, (Crossen)
S: McCourty, Chung, Harmon, Melifonwu
I don't think this group is bad at all going into the offseason. Yes, we need to replace Flowers. Yes, we need to draft a DT and a LB, but we start with a good group.
DL: Wise, Guy, Clayborne, Brown, Butler, Simon
LB: Hightower, Van Noy, Roberts, Bentley, Sam
???: Rivers, Davis, Shelton
