    TE Visanthe Shiancoe has been released, Patriots announce. Shiancoe signing ($1.2m) did not produce desired results. Just 59 snaps played.

    Next year we will have Gronk , Hernandez and Ballard     I don't think Gronk will get snaps till Miami just to get some game speed reps.  The fracture needs time to get strong and the muscles are weak.

    Shiancoe was released which means Gronk will probably be active this week, as he's been "practicing".



    Even so you push that injury less then a month before the playoffs?  They can rest him as long as necessary.  shianco dropping mallets rocket was his death.  Ha ha

    Uhhh this is a shocker...

    Stallworth looked pretty good last night in limited reps.  His speed certainly stretched the field, which is something we've lacked.  I'd rather him over Branch at this point.

    As some have suggested, I think this means we'll see the return of the Gronk earlier than expected.

    In response to dmpc's comment:

    Why didn't they just bring Branch back instead of Stallworth?




     

    Because Stallworth brought more skill to a position of need. If he didn't get hurt Branch would still be unemployed. Time to find out if Branch has anything left.

    Unbelievable... Well if we've learned anything... Brady will handle it.  Its like an embarrassment of riches sometimes.  Welker gronk Hernandez Lloyd vereen.  How many balls can you spread around?

    I forgot woodhead... And fells...  and now branch.  I guess it makes sense.  If we're guessing imagine other teams trying to figure it out.

    Re: Patriots release Shiancoe and place Stallworth on IR

    That stinks. Doesn't kill us. But Branch can not stretch the field the same way Stallworth or even Edelman could.

    He's no more than another possession receiver. As much as I love Branch, part of me wishes they just brought who ever the fastest receiver is on the FA market. 

     

    You can probably go man to man on Branch with your 3rd or 4th best cb. At least when it comes to speed, you have to have someone who can go toe to toe. 

    Pats screwed up with their I.R. desgination. Should've been Demps instead of Shiancoe. If Gronk and Hern were never hurt, would Shiancoe even see any snaps?

    Demps held value as a returner and rb (a position that was somewhat of a question mark coming into the season).

    Also, don't know what they plan on doing with Demps for next season, considering we are have good rb depth now, but I hope they can work on his route running and make him a rb/wr hybrid.

    That's what I thought.  With Stallworth going to IR and Shiancoe released, they've got two spots open. I continue to believe a deep threat would help the team.  Stallworth added a different dimension last night.  Gaffney might also be able to do that . . . but is his suspension still in effect?

    Re: Patriots release Shiancoe and place Stallworth on IR

    I must be missing something.  The Pats website shows 52 active without Branch.  They dropped 2 players (one to IR).  Did someone else get elevated from the PS?  I was expecting to see 51 active, or 52 with Branch.

    Re: Patriots release Shiancoe and place Stallworth on IR

    Bringing Branch back at this point may be a desperation move with Stallworth injured. If he had been really ready, the Pats would not have put in a claim for Binns last week, who ended up with MIA.  But it is interesting that the Pats cut Shiancoe. That created another open roster spot. Is there a promotion from the PS or will there be another signing?
