Re: [patriotzip] Patriots Roster Battles heading into Training Camp
- I understand your point, Harry. It wouldn't be an outrageous move; but I wouldn't make it.

These are my reasons George. Wouldn't be the first time BB went with two QBs. Edelman can play QB in a pinch. They can keep a QB (not Hoyer) on the practice squad. There is too much talent at the other positions, every spot will be at a premium and Hoyer can only do QB. (When will BB find a QB who can play special teams or at least another position? :) ).
No knock on Hoyer, just a numbers thing.

No way, Harry. You have to carry 3 QBs, IMO.

I wouldn't be surprized to see the Pats try to get something for Hoyer and free up another roster spot. I think Mallett is far enough along that he can move up to backup.

PUP â€“ VOLLMER, ZUSEVICS A. CARTER, BALLARD
SHADOW ROSTER â€“ ALLEN, VENTRONE, G. WARREN
SUSPENDED - DENNARD ?????
Tough Cuts - FIAMETTA, G. WARREN, BRACE, TARPINIAN, WHITE, ALLEN, FRANCIS
Team will go with 8 OL until VOLLMER is ready. I'd hate to make the game day 45 man roster!
I think there are 36 spots on the roster that are locked up. The battle is for roster spots in the Special Team category.
Addai, Stallworth, Branch, Cunningham, Pryor and Warren don't play Special Teams. I don't think the team can afford to keep more than 5 players that don't play ST. I have heard that Stallworth was working on KO returns. Thats 23 players fighting for 17 positions.
PUP / IR Vollmer, Zusevics, A. Carter and Ballard
Practice Squad - there is actually competition for these 8 spots???? BOLDEN, KETTANI, EBERT, DAVIS, J. WARREN, FRANCIS, TARPINIAN, EBNER and VENTRONE (according to Reiss is eligible)
This is going to be one hell of a camp, the most competitive I can ever remember. These players better not take the next three weeks off and think they are just going to show up and take the conditioning run.
Let the Dead Period begin and see you in 5 weeks. GO PATS
