    When have the patriots ever had athletic DEs? Chandler jones is the only "athletic guy" that comes to mind.
    Typically they are complete players big and strong more than quick and athletic.

    But I expect Hightower to essentially be used in a role much like a de.

    No Rivers, so we'll go with a Marsh. Going for the all natural defensive line.

    I liked in that Miami game clip how he was on the field late in a one score game. A lot different than late in a 20 point blowout.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Personally, I like the moves Bill's made since cut-down. Definitely nervous about the quick season ending injuries.

    Two comments from Seahawks fans about Marsh.

    Matthew Holm1 day ago
    Take it from a Seahawks fan, Marsh will be the Pats' new Ninkovich. He doesn't look all that impressive on paper, but he's absolutely relentless on the field. He's an excellent rotational end for Seattle, and a special teams ace, and a cult hero in Seattle. Really sad to see him go.

    i honestly don't put much stock into those analytics. I've seen Marsh solo tackle Adrian Peterson... and i mean just run him down going to the sideline. Completely by himself. He's a maniac. He excels on special teams... He's the kind of guy who will work as hard as he can to do ANYTHING for his team. THAT is WHY THE PATRIOTS TOOK HIM.. DO you think the patriots don't know what they're getting ??? LOL LOL LOL LOL They have watched this guy and have the same opinion i do... He's probably just about the most passionate hard working player you're going to find ANYWHERE. And yes... he is FAST. THAT is all you need if you can coach people up. Not some ****ing analytics. I'm not some hill billy either... medical degree and i know a good football player when i watch him play. Marsh is good with A LOT of potential. This is one of those GLUE guys that makes a championship team champions. The kind of guy you let go after you win it all and then your team is never the same after he leaves kind of guy. Seahawks WILL have injuries in the front 7 and they WILL regret this move.

    "Oddball" is a verified method for sorting out a person's ability to do a job. That's very helpful.

    And the reality is that almost all of us are "mixed" in some manner. The commoditization of DNA testing is going to shine some wonderful light on a lot of old, inaccurate assumptions.

    My brain fart escapades don't look so bad, after reading this.
    Thanks Kenny b.
    So potentially being the next Nink just isn't good enough?

    I think that's a huge stretch and a bit too quick to give away van noys job to a guy who hasn't played LB.

    Special teamer in the rotation at de and possible 3rd down de when flowers shifts inside.

    He'll earn his playing time, but clearly Bill had his eye on him for a while.
    He's been pursuing him since the off season began.

    Put down the keyboard and go find a woman.

    I'm sure plenty of MtG players would agree with your political views, seeing as they're mainly white dudes.

    I don't think my political views have anything to do with skin color and you sure as hell dont know what they are.

    Obviously, i don't think he's the next nink. Couldnt hold the line to save his life. If he were, it would be.

    And i was liking nink while others were calling him stinkovich.
