    Re: David Patten

    We have 80 spots on the roster at the start of Training Camp, at least he provides competition and can help out with the young players.  Worst case he's cut, and if he makes the team he is the #4/5.  No problem with this move, considering it is for short money.

    The move could be nothing but positive.  At worst, he gets cut and makes nothing from the team.  At best, he rekindles his chemistry with Brady, provides some depth, and brings back some of the champioinship leadership this team is sorely lacking.  

    There is absolutely no downside to the move.  Why do some people act as if every veteran minimum signing is a life or death move for the team?  This doesn't prevent them from signing, trading for, or drafting anyone.

    ANother 36 yr old dude! Didnt we learn with Galloway debacle last year?He didnt even play last year. I thought the idea was to go young not old, thats why we were saying no to the likes of LT, Westbrook.

    Can't compare galloway to Patten, first off Patten has had history with the Pats and with Brady.  One of his best years was with TB and the Pats in 2004.  He's 36 so?  If he can still has speed and can run clean routes he used to run who cares if he's 36 or 26?  He is a solid veteran addition who will bring back some of the Patriot way teachings, meaning people are screaming for extra coaches here's one he just will have pads and a helmet on.

    Doesn't this strategy take up space for younger prospects that have more long term potential?

    I would rather see a younger player (with good stats) who is coming off an injury get signed than an old player who is inevitably going to get injured. That's a better risk tradeoff IMO.

    This back to the future stuff is literally getting old.

    There is plenty of space for young players.  They already have Edelman and Tate, and most likely will add another in the draft in April.  That will be three promising young receivers to develop while the veterans (including possibly Patten) hold down the fort for a while.  Welker's injury just makes having those veterans all the more important.

    Right now I look at the Patten signing as a non-issue.  It's way too early to tell what the Pats are thinking about the Patten signing.  But if the Pats picked up Patten with the expectation of him being a solid contributor on offense.  Then the Pats will be heading into 2010 with some serious problems.

    I don't know WHY they brought him back, but one of my favorite things to do is put in "3 Games to Glory"  and watch his spectacular, leaping (usually backwards) catches.  Love seeing a receiver FIGHTING for a ball.  Miss it.

    He signed to retire as a Patriot and join the Coaching staff to help with the kick and punt returns.

    I would say worst, he makes the team not at worst he gets cut. I like having him around in preseason camps and in training camp and then I hope he does not make the team because we have much better recievers. Hopefully the patriots can make a better decesion this year on reciever (Galloway vs. Greg Lewis). If Patten does make the team it worries me about the recievers next year, but if they are able to draft (hopefully in round 2) a decent reciever they will have basically two rookies (Tate) and Edelman. So a veteren presence isn't a bad thing.
