    All of those guys were late round picks/undrafted. Not the same thing.

    I’m liking this Brady guy. Think he can build off last year.

    I know this is a belief people share but i don’t think you can actually name many examples.

    Mike Vrabel
    Wes Welker
    Vinnie Testaverde
    Otis Smith
    Tyrone Poole
    Dion Lewis

    IDK that's just off the top of my head real fast of players who I think fully came into their own in a different system than where they started.

    The criteria was players that bounced around failing and ended up putting it all together after missing with numerous teams ie hunter liking fir 5th team.

    Vrabel was a backup who cane here and got a chance to start
    Weaker was a slot receiver with one team who did better here
    Otis Smith was a 9 year vet with 2 teams who started 47 games.
    Poole was a first round pick who was a full time starter his first 6 years in the league who came here to basically have his last good season.
    Lewis played for one team before the patriots and missed 2 seasons with injuries.

    None fit the example cited, which is really my point, that it seems like that happens but it really rarely does.

    I agree some players click when they get to the right team but that wasn’t the concept I disagreed with, I disagreed with the “floating around” concept.

    I don't think Aiken is a good comp. In 6 years in Buff he did less as a WR than Harris in 3 with Skins. Aiken had established himself as a STer moreso than Harris. Harris story is he developed for 2 then had a somewhat decent 3rd year hopefully he builds on that here. My expectations are 35+ catches and 400+ yards.

    short answer: no. I liked him coming out of Tennessee, but he's past the age where if he was going to amount to much of anything it pretty much would have happened by now.

    I would like to point out that just because the Patriots are working someone (or a group) out, doesn't mean they expect them to be legitimate roster contenders, or are desperate for them to be. With Edelman out for the beginning of camp, they probably need another body so they have enough WR's to run enough reps without burning them out needlessly. If one of them happens to be a surprise that's great, but BB always has a continuous rolodex of players in case a need comes up.

    Those aren’t good examples.
    Kvn was in his 3rd year all with one team and starting.
    Guy is a little better example because he was a bottom of the roster guy for a couple of years on 2 teams before carving out a big role in bmore. He came here as a starter level meg level free agent not a journeyman cast off.

    On the positive side he was a 2nd round pick - 4th WR taken and he lost
    time to injuries which hampered his development ... on the negative side
    we are team 5 ... so something is missing there. Doesn't hurt to bring him
    in ... we have ??? marks ... but it's a very long shot ... he's older by NFL standards.
