If Talib can get things figured out, he is going to be a good player for the Patriots.

It's the 2nd. They cut him at the end of training camp, and they cut him today.

I'm pretty sure he's been cut by the Pats more than twice.

I'm 100% sure you're incorrect. He was cut for the first time at the end of August. Prior to that, he had never been cut in his career.

They've traded him before. Perhaps that confused you with these two cuts?

Salas Stat Line for Today:

9 Catches
131 yards
2 TD's
8 first down catches
Regular Season MVP
OPOY
CBPOTY
3 INT's
2 Pick 6's

If BB is going to trade away a 6th Round pick, we're obviously going to get production like this.

So, seriously, is Salas likely to be getting any playing time? I really liked him in that draft.

We have pretty much no fully healthy WR's.

Cut Branch as he isn't going to be picked up by anyone so we'll be able to keep him easily but also have a healthy WR available for today.
