    I was thinking he's here for Cleveland but those 2 scenarios make more sense. Especially Sanchez:D

    As someone who generally likes your sports knowledge I can honestly say this signing must suck.;)

    Did anyone really think they were taking Edleman to be a QB?

    I'm with everyone that said Crompton sucked in college, he was awful

    Why was Crompton drafted in the 5th round if he was even this awful in college? Even Zac Robinson, who was quite close to being Mr. Irrelevant, didn't get all of this criticism (well, that is, until he got on the practice field and we saw how terrible he is).

    I thought it was for wildcat formation potential.

    Crompton was one of the few live arms in the draft that didn't play in a spread offense. Add that to the fact that the Tennessee program has been imploding the last half a decade and no doubt San Diego and now New England think they could correct some bad habits that weren't ironed out in college.

    Reading his bio he's basically a more polished Kevin O'Connell.

    Yes, he reportedly showed significant improvement from his junior to senior season after Lane Kiffin brought in a QB coach developed under Steve Spurrier, and Drew Brees' old Purdue OC to work him in a Pro-style offense. Crompton had a good week for scouts at Texas v. Nation. San Diego took a flyer on him, and signed him to their PSquad after cut downs. This is a kid who had mechanical flaws that Tennessee under Kiffin started to address, he's filling a spot on the PSquad that has been open two weeks. Can't hurt to take a more detailed test drive.

    Atlanta apparently did, and they have a BB-trained GM. :p

    Hello to all...Have always been a Patriots fan, have been lurking for awhile but wanted to jump out of lurking to comment on Crompton. I read some earlier posts from fans who saw Crompton play in Tennessee..while I agree Crompton had an awful 2008 season..I can't agree that Crompton is an awful QB.
    I became a fan of Crompton's in 2008 , he had a terrible season , and the fans and the media voiced their disapproval viciously. He didn't play his best that year..the team as a whole was pretty disappointing but you could see the kid had the ability to be a good QB. Still it was the way he handled the adversity that year that won me over as a fan . And I was thrilled to watch his phenomenal turn around in 2009.
    I'd be the first to admit Crompton has some developing to do and perhaps will never be another Tom Brady or Payton Manning ..but given a more steady coaching environment then he dealt with at UT , he very well could be a top NFL QB. This kid has talent, determination, dedication and even when being booed by 120,000 fans at UT , he still gave 110 %. I hope my fellow Patriot fans will give him a chance to warm up before deciding he isn't worthy of wearing the Patriot uniform or holding a clipboard for a couple years.

    There are a lot of articles out there about Crompton's poor performance at UT..here are a couple articles that give a better picture of the situation he faced at UT.

    Maybe he's a psych major for Moss.

    Probably doesn't amount to much but considering we had a vacancy on the PS, can't hurt to have a look. BB has a track record of developing QBs so why not? It's extremely low-risk, high-reward. Having said that much, I doubt Hoyer loses any sleep over it.
