In response to jri37's comment:
Cannon can play both guard and tackle and gives them the versitility they love in their O-lineman i can't see him not making the team.
Lovie??? That's a tough call there are so many variables with the new interior guys and deaderick. Of the 4 you mentioned this could be the most likely cut.
Edelman like cannon gives them versatility and he is one of the few recievers with any experience in this system. IF the 2 rookies and jones pick up the offense quickly and show they can handle the load then possibly he could go I just don't see that happening.
Ballad is here especially with the health situation of gronk and hern. The only way he goes if he hasn't recovered fron his injury or he isn't the same player because of his injury.
just my 2 cents
Cannon's not a bubble player, he is the most talented young player on the line, there's always a chance he could start at guard or tackle if there's an injury or even if there isn't. I've always thought Connolly was our best center and Cannon our best guard after Mankins.
Edelman just signed a reasonable contract plus he can play special teams as well as corner in a pinch. I see TJ Moe making this team one because he won't survive on the practice squad but also he can also return kicks and is strong enough to play special teams.
Ballard if healthy is our best tightend after Gronk, he and Gronk will be a matchup nightmare on the goal line and will open up running lanes.
I saw a lot of camp last summer. I have to say, and I posted on this forum, that if Waters was in camp, I thought Cannon was the odd man out. He was horrible. He did play in what, one game last year against the Jets with out mishap? I hope he is in shape and ready to take on a starters job, with Connolly or Wendell the C...I would like the Ol to get bigger. I am huge on Edelman, and happy he was resigned. If the 2 rookies perform this summer, some one has to go (I already have Jenkins out)
My Ballard comments were strictly health related...he hasnt played in almost 18 months, and he was half a step slow to begin with.
I wish I was going to be there this weekend, but I am not. Hope some one is and posts on the board.
