Fleming is just as capable, far less injury-prone and more versatile. No guarantee whatsoever that the Pats are able to replace Gillislee's success rate/production and pass-pro even with a 2nd-round RB. And that only saves about $1M off the cap. Good idea. Very highly unlikely that the Pats would be able to even come close to replacing Allen or Bennett's blocking abilities with a TE drafted from this class. Allen still has some upside as a receiver. Bennett is old. Flowers is a definite yes for me. Branch is clearly past his sell-by date. McClellin should retire and immediately register for a CTE study. I get that he's the most reviled player on the Pats roster, followed closely by Roberts, but there's nothing significant to be gained by cutting either until their upgrades are under contract (which is far from certain to happen).
