Patrick is a #3 corner ON A GOOD DAY. He is terrible, but if you need a #4 CB I guess you could get him. He only costs us 600k. On surprised about DT though.. Sad I liked him.

There is no room for him though, the Patriots have at least 5 TEs on the roster right now. [Fells will be released though most likely]


Kind of off topic, but what do you think will happen with Hoomanawanui? Will he stick on as a 4th TE or will he leave (he's a RFA IIRC)


Since he also contributes as a FB and played over Fells last season [which indicted the Patriots liked him] i expect the Patriots to keep him as 4th TE on the roster.

He could get a pretty low original draft pick tender which was a 5th round pick.

Considering Heath Miller is unlikely to play this season, I hope Pittsburgh grabs Thomas. He's got some extremely underrated hands. Ben would love to have that in Thomas since Miller is done for this season.

He did not and is still very much a gamble to even suit up (the injury is chancey from what I understand.)

Hmm, thought it was an ACL tear that sidelined him? Can't be THAT bad, can it?

He had microfracture surgery. But he was on our PUP so I'd say its a good sign for him.

I expect Hooman back and Fells to be released. I like Hooman more than Fells and he was getting PT and should be cheaper.

Johnny Patrick was a player I wanted the Raiders to draft. Can't be too good if he got released though.

Patrick looked like a stud in preseason his rookie year. Battled injuries that whole season, and played like garbage last season. Don't know what to think about him, I wont miss him though. That's for sure.

Most if not all Saints fans aren't too happy with losing Thomas. He's been behind Shockey and Graham on the DC. I have no doubt he could be a #1 on a team that needed a TE.

Given the fact that Chris Carr and Greg Gatson started at times last year, i'm not sure it could get all that much worse...but it's not an ideal situation
