    Addai deal potentially good news for S. Ridley's chances of securing primary early-down job. Addai lone strength is blitz pickup at this pt

    Addai looked like he was going to be very good when he came out, he's shifty. He has had some injuries though which have slowed him down since 07. The Addai of 07 would be a huge pickup but we don't know which one we have here.

    Low risk! Worth giving him a try.  Picks up the blitz very well, which is good for a "typically" pass happy team.

    This is exactly the kind of signing I expected . . . a veteran to back up the young guys.  Addai is a decent choice, I think.

    I've been wanting this to happen for awhile now. Addai is a tough runner and he'll be a great asset to have. The RBBC will be a good one this year.

    Fresh starts usually bring out the best in a guy, assuming there's anything left.

    I wish Rapoport was still with the Boston Herald...Hopefully Addai has something left in the tank


    Thought Joseph Addai was done after last year. My guess is he still is. But  system could make him productive, catching the ball

    I like it. He's a little older than I'd prefer, but with all the RB's the Pats have, he'll fit in ok and not be overworked. The only thing that worries me is that none of them are proven game breakers YET. Addai was, but is older now, and the others like Vareen and Ridley may end up being great, but are young and unknown quantities as yet.

    There's your veteran running back. Nice signing if he can stay healthy.

    Looked good as a younger player, certainly get the sense injuries have slowed him.  Oh well hopefully this will quell the people whining for a stud running back to eat up cap space, Ridley will be just fine with the supporting cast.  Running to win is playing to lose.

    Re: Joseph Addai signs with the Patriots

    @ Seattle and Pro,

    We signed Addai for 1 reason, to pick up the blitz as we go pass heavy and teach Ridley to pick up the blitz after Addai goes down with injury in week 5.

    I just hope they're both good at it. Brady is 35.

    You never know though maybe this is the year we pass our way to a SB?

    I wonder if this means that Faulk is done here....I hope he will retire as a member of the Patriots....He will be apart of the Patriots HOF

    He's a good all-round back . . . or at least he was when he was younger.  BB is looking for a do-all veteran to back up the Ridley/Vereen/Woodhead trio in both the running and passing game.  He's a much more versatile player than BJGE and, while on the downside of is career, is probably more effective than Faulk is now, particularly in the running game.

    I wanted/preferred Ryan Grant, but I like this move.  I sure hope he can stay on the field.
