    The Pats may be going towards a true ameba defense.

    4-3, 3-4, 3-3, 2-4, 4-2. They can pretty much play any package they want now.

    From Mike Reiss when Collins was traded

    "This seemed to indicate the thinking of the coaching staff that Collins wasn't as good of an option against the run as rookie Elandon Roberts."

    Anyone else think Jamie looked bigger in CLE than he did here?

    That's how players get into the bargain bin.

    Might have been already noted, but KVN and Collins crossed paths on the team for less than a week in 2016 and never played together. Interesting to see how it plays out with roles and responsibilities. Potential to be the deepest deck at LB in more recent years.

    I don't think Bill has a habit of consulting with his coaching staff and the players on personnel moves. Heck, I don't think he even talks with Brady about the draft.

    The trashing was well deserved.

    I am not suggesting that they are the same player but I was just going through the depth chart and the players I expect to make the roster ahead of Collins.

    I wouldn't ignore Shalique Calhoun. I think that he has a better chance of making the squad than Sam, Munson or Hall.

    He is listed as a defensive end by Reiss.

    I rarely saw him in a Browns uniform. Lol. But he always seemed to have skinny arms for a LB with the Pats. Basically, Shawn Crable in reverse.

    Sorry to rain on your parade but if the rumors about a one year deal are true then we are back exactly in the same situation as back then: He will want to maximize his value for next year's FA cycle.

    The main difference is that we are better equipped to immediately bench/cut him on the first sign of freelancing because this time he would be the the depth player not the starter. Hopefully for everyone involved he matured in his time in Cleveland and will be more of a team player.

    Truth be told there are some unflattering pictures of him around that make it appear as though he has gained some weight.

    Cool! He was an exciting player that made some big plays for us.

    I thought he looked a little more hefty. CLE had him play more on the edge so maybe he needed to eat a couple of Bic Macs to keep the weight up there.

    Calhoun faces an uphill battle at Edge/OLB. Hes not an ILB

    Smaht move. Collins is a Beast.

    This team is going to be better than last season. Crazy. I mean, another serviceable WR and the team is basically stocked. I'm not even concerned about TE because I believe BB is switching gears to a RB oriented offense. The TE play will be good enough

    Bound to be roster cut downs that will add more talent. The Vet with a year left to get his ring.
