And nothing of value was lost. They also signed two players that I've never heard of and put Fiammetta on the left squad list.

Glad I left him off my latest roster projection. He had nothing left in the tank.

Koppen next?

Rapsheet:
Why did Robert Gallery retire? Source says Gallery felt his body would not be able to handle training camp/season. Too much wear & tear

Nothing of value is lost.

The Patriots strangly listed Kareem Huggins as FB in the press release but he is just 5-9 198 and reportedly ran 4.28 40 time.

Derrick Martin might actually make the team since hes a decent special teams player who has played both CB and Safety in his career.

Was he that bad really? I actually thought he was gonna be a key part of the o-line because of his versatility and injuries on the line. I'm shocked, considering I haven't heard or seen anything about him from TC so far.

Huggins and Arrington were teammates at Hofstra. He blew out his ACL midseason in 2010 and hasn't played since.

Yes, he was that bad. He's really tall for a guard, and his body couldn't handle all the bending anymore.

It seemed like from all of the training camp accounts out there, he was a disaster. He was pretty crappy last season for the Seahawks, so this comes as no surprise.

He retired because he felt his body won't be able to make it through an NFL season, not because of his performance.

On Tony Fiammetta, source says he will not play in 2012 due to family issue. Hopes to return to Pats in 2013.

That's the news I'm not happy about. I wanted Fiammetta on the team.

Now Larsen or Kettani? Neither is really a traditional fullback, both are special teamers who can catch out of the backfield and run around a bit. Larsen has experience at linebacker, which has to help.

Neither. The fullback position is dead, let it stay that way instead of wasting a roster spot on a limited athlete that will only be used situationally at best. Cross-training an athletic offensive lineman is still a better option, in my opinion.

As bad as Gallery has looked in camp, it's still a blow to the OL depth.

The OL looks mighty shaky right now with no Vollmer, Mankins or Waters and no backups other than Wendell who are competent. It wouldn't surprise me if the Pats added a veteran depth lineman in the next few weeks.

Wouldn't be surprised if they signed some veteran OL in the next couple of days. Not sure who's available.

According to this: http://www.nfl.com/freeagency (which looks out of date to me)

Mark LeVoir is currently an FA...he knows the system and was with JM at the Rams last year.
