Woohoo.... yawn !!! Another "value" signing ?? Is this even worthy news or post?
He wont make the team, Jones wont make the team, Jenkins won't make the team.
Edelman is hurt, Hernandez s comming off shoulder auyrgery, Gronkwoski is having issues with his forearm, Amendola will get hurt in mini-camp. Boyce has a broken foot. Dobson must have some unkown ailement that we dont know about yet... it's a prerequesite as a BB draftee of FA signing.
I feel bad for Brady... they're wasting is last years wth fragile players or has beens or never will be's.
BB is betting on all the TE's and Wr's getting and staying healthy... if that doesn't happen this passing attack is in serious trouble
poor brady having to throw to two of the best tight ends in the league, and amendola......get a clue.
Hey, I'm not saying Hernandez, Gronkowski & Amendola are chumps... all are certainly very talented... but what good is all that talent sitting on the sidelines nursing injuries?
It's really a head scratcher trying to rationlize the injury issue on this team... especially at the skill positions. Save for a handful of players (e.g Moss, Welker, Brown) Brady has had very little talent to throw to when looked at a 12 year span or so. BB just doesn't seem to value the skill offesnse positions like he does the OL of DL. The further the postion is from the ball the less he seems value that postion. And I don't get his apparent facination with injury prone players... value?
I know all this sounds stupid and irrational but boy it sure does seem to fit and from a fan's perspective very frustrating. Hey, Greg Jennings is comming off an injury...why didn't BB jump all over that and sign him? At least Jennings is talented... Jones? Hawkins? Jenkins? not so much. Camp bodies? Does anyone really think bringing these guys in as camp bodies is going to transform them in tthe next Jerry Rice? There are what they are ... !!
