I really think this may have to do with keeping their word with a player they made a promise to, which is fine. Otherwise it doesn’t make sense.
I think with the very real gamble of Gordon and/or Brown lasting 16 games, it makes a lot of sense.
I hope Brown lasts. I really, really hope Gordon lasts. But unfortunately the other shoe could drop for either one any day.
They were very cautious throughout the summer as well as last night in terms of managing his Achilles/hammy, so I would have been surprised if they cut him. It would seem as though they have plans for him and have been keeping an eye on the future.I really think this may have to do with keeping their word with a player they made a promise to, which is fine.

So they're sticking with 1 TE I guess (plus Develin). That's a ton of WRs, but many of them are very good blockers in the run game, so that helps... It also creates interesting scenarios where they have so many talented WRs, some large and some small, that it forces opposing defenses to have to game plan to stop both. They won't know if the Pats will be rolling out Brown, Gordon & DT or Brown, Edelman and Dorsett. Two really different looks. Pats can also gameplan and activate/utilize who they want based on the weaknesses of the opposition's secondary.
