    My guess is more plays with Devlin at H back or TE.

    I think Izzo has the inside track to make the initial 53 man roster as the blocking tight-end. Saubert is probably only going to cost the 7th rounder on condition he makes the roster* so I don't think this is a hugely significant move other than getting another camp body due to the Lacosse injury. He has an outside shot at making roster only due to the Ben Watson suspension, seeing that he is not really reliable in any facet (blocking or passing) other than his special teams value.

    *my projection

    New theory: 7th-rounder is conditional on Saubert being on the roster for 5 weeks. ;)

    What about Anderson? Do we expect him to be cut? And then it comes down to Izzo, Beck, and LaCosse competing for spots with Saubert now?

    I expected Anderson to be cut either way. We already have a pure receiving TE in LaCosse.

    Just read on WEEI that to free up a roster spot for Saubert that LaCosse could possibly land on the IR. That shocked me as I didn't think his injury was anywhere that serious.

    If there is a chance he can come back by week 8 then he has to be on the 53 first. So they would need to carry him on the roster until after cut-down day and then IR him.

    Its from Hannable. I wouldn't rank that too high on a believe-ability scale.

    Gronk was one of a kind. There's no one in the league that comes close.

    Our three most likely TE's are suspended, injured and injured. We need camp bodies. And yes, we may very well acquire another TE.
