    I think it is a wasted roster spot. He can't stay healthy, and doesn't bring anything to the backfield that we didn't already have, other than experience. What our backfield needs is a battering ram.

    If I may interject, I think this was an incredible pick up and let me explain why.

    We have the Riddler (Ridley) who has shown good outside speed, and Vereen. I beleive Vereen will be that exceptional runner once he gets more play time under his belt. Woodhead will be the break-up bak that will slither and get you the 8 to 15 yards and keep the defense guessing.
    Now you bring in Addai, who in my opinion was abused by the Colts, Bill B will get this guy ft and keep him rested and not over used.

    Make no mistake here, Addai will add much depth, and can either block on the blitz pick up or offer a swing outlet pass that gets you that next set of downs.

    now this is all just my opinion but many many things just now seem to be going in the right direction.

    Poeple, if this offense clicks this season with all the weapons in its back yard, the Patriots have the potential to blow these games out at half time.

    I would love to see the Pats start blowing games open. I agree. Good pick up. Go Pats

    i don't think so. he hasn't played well for a few years. he used to be a decent back but has had some injuries. its worth a look though i suppose. 

    the kid they signed last week might be good though.

    Re: Addai: good get??

    He is one of the best RBs at picking up blitzes, if Faulk is not back I don't think the young guns will be up to read blocking schemes so at very minimum Addai its a good pickup when you consider the amount of passing plays.

    I can see them keeping only three RBs, Woody, Vereen and Ridley and keep a FB but who goes in for pass blocking?  They probably keep 3 TEs so the roster spot has to come from somewhere RB seems to be the spot.  I like Addai but don't know if there's a roster spot for him unless they decide not to keep a FB which seems that's not the case since they now have 3.

    Exactly, I hope he doesn't make the team because that means Ver, rid & WH and hopefully one of the 2 fullbacks we signed have given BB enough confidence that we don't need him.  But with Verneen not even making the field last year, ridley's fumbles why wouldn't you want a vet that played in a passing offense like ours as a backup insurance policy.

    Don't think he'll last, unless BB cuts or trades Woodhead. No way he cuts loose the youngs RBs or Bolden.
