RE: [SPAM] [patriotzip] Bill says Troy will be back!
Bill Belichick did not say what role Troy Brown has in the plans. That could mean anything given what we seen out of the Patriot camp. I think that Troy will make the roster. I believe this because, although he may have lost a step or two, he is a solid backup WR that usually makes the needed play in clutch situations and he is a solid backup CB. Add to that he can still return punts and you have a versatile backup that can fill several team needs. This may be Troy ’s last year making the roster but in some capacity I believe Troy will continue as a part of the team for a long time to come.

everything Troy has done for the team, I'd hate to
see a promising WR cut, even if right now that WR
isn't up to par with Troy , just to keep Troy on the
team out of a sense of sentimentality. Though with
Belichick being the cold-hearted bastard he is :) :)
I don't think we'll have to worry about that.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Troy not make the team,
but then be brought onto the roster later in the year
when the inevitable (sigh) wave of injuries hits,
or if one of the WRs just doesn't work out as the
