    Hand size? NE will only take a large hand QB because of weather considerations.

    I never take this ratings business too seriously - two years ago he was something like the top rated center by PFF and last year he was the worst by the same folks. Personally I didn't see a big chang more »

    The biggest issue with mallett is money - any guy you draft this year you control for 4 years at reasonable dollars. Mallett is on a one year contract at this point - if he pans out next year you have more »

    I am a bit intrigued by Ayers - he is young, was pretty highly valued coming out and shown some flashes - and I don't see much market out there at the moment so he should be cheap and might surprise a more »

    The issue is not just salary but dead money - not sure what the exact details of aqib's deal are, but part of what makes it work for Denver is the bonus money being spread over five years - so if they more »

    Sorry but I don't see this as 'PC' but human decency. I suppose you are fine if the person sitting next to you at a sporting event with your family is yelling at the players 'f__ing N___'?! If not the more »

    I think the answer is simple - To the Patriots in 2014 he is worth a 2nd round pick - low cost high skill and long exposure to their system. If they trade him then they either have to pay serious mone more »

    Problem with this is two fold: 1. Mallet is a cheap back up in a year where Pat's cap space is very limited because of a certain TE they cut. A good back-up is likely to cost more. 2. Good depth in th more »

    On the stats side of things - people are pointing to 18 tackles in 8 games and saying he isn't producing - this of course compares to 'all world' nose tackle Vince who had something like 8 tackles in more »

  • Forum Post: NT available..

    Posted 10/29/2013 05:21:09 EDT

    This is a no lose deal - by the late fifth round/early sixth round the draft picks are more guess work than talent evaluation so Pat's gave up nothing for a guy that up until this year was playing ver more »

    OK folks - fess up all you posters who thought Edelman should be dumped. 7 for 79 and two TDs.  Never said he was a game changer, but he provides a poor man's WW as receiver and one of the best PRs ar more »

    Well ... ask Vick how that running thing has worked out for him long term (or ask his team's fans and coach.) And seems there was another run option guy last year who didn't make it through his first more »

    This is pretty normal for BB and a lot of teams at this time of year. 600 players became available in the last week and some of them have probably been on the Pats list of interesting players either f more »

  • Posted 09/05/2013 06:17:03 EDT

    Emergency players can include trades - like last year with Talib. Not sure what his cap charge ended up being for the rest of the season, but I am pretty sure it was more than the Vet minimum that is more »

  • Forum Post: Long snapper . . .

    Posted 09/02/2013 06:05:53 EDT

    The idea of a specialist snapper is a fairly recent phenomenon in the NFL - they used to take a OL or DL or LB aside each year and teach him to long snap. Of course they had a few more botched field g more »

  • Forum Post: Develin Released

    Posted 09/02/2013 05:43:53 EDT

    Very curious to see who is coming in. On the Develin/Hooman question, hooman was never a threat to actually receive the ball on a run where at least in preseason Develin did. And hooman is not a reall more »

  • Forum Post: CRAZY CONTRACT!

    Posted 09/02/2013 05:19:58 EDT

    12.5 sacks from a DT is going to lead to this kind of contract. But I agree. The Pats are pretty good at keeping a balance on their contracts - they pay good players well, but tend to shy away from th more »

    Good for him - good guy and good punter. I think Allen was a good keep - he made the mistake of outkicking his coverage once early but didn't do it again - hit the endzone once but had two beautiful O more »

    Wow - a thread that actually has stayed on topic and not devolved into name calling! Too good to last, but just wow! NYC - The Mesko cut ties directly back to the Vinatiere situation but not in the wa more »

    They were in base personnel last year for only somwhere around 45% of the time and their non-base personnel is often only three DL or a single DT and three DEs. With a number of semi hybrid players (a more »

    AJ probably has higher upside and like the other teams/players was caught in a numbers game at Miami - they wanted him on their practice squad. I was curious about Ta'amu out of Pitt as well. For what more »

  • Forum Post: Quarterbacks

    Posted 09/01/2013 04:03:06 EDT

    With the practice squad the teams that only keep two QBs typically stash a third QB on the PS. This makes a lot of sense as you don't waste a roster spot on someone you hope will never play, but you h more »

    Grass is always greener and all that. I look at a number of the cuts announced today and see an awful lot of first second and third rounders being cut from teams across the NFL - seems to me that it i more »
