    Leaves them pretty thin in the secondary, doesn't it? Hope Bill's cookin' up something good.

    I keep thinking all this could have been avoided if the Pat's kept Wil Yeatman on the 53 man roster and released Butler on Saturday. I hope Gronk 2  turns out to be  a solid TE, but it all comes down to the upside of Yeatman.

    Yeah, something like this seems to happen a lot.  While on the one hand BB says that he expects everyone he cuts to land elsewhere (as in doesn't count on them returning), he clearly does count on some of them returning.  Now, if the other Gronkowski is better than Yeatman, then BB is correct (like 99% of the time).  If he isn't viewed as good (or not as much potential), then we messed this one up.

    I think BB simply counted on Yeatman making it to the practice squad, regardless of what he said in his news conference.
