“@MikeReiss: As @FieldYates reported, Patriots have waived safety Don Jones today. Has been core special teamer. Unexpected move that sparks question why”

Might be to make room for Siliga or Hughlett if Aiken can't go Sunday

Well, they are deeper at ST safety than WR or RB. Jones wasn't even active last week.

He's played well on special teams, but they have a lot of good special teamers and they can't all stick around.

Of course, it's possible there's something off-field going on that we don't know about. If not, I'd expect Jones to be back if not claimed by another team.

We have space, Slater, Casillas, Bolden and Ebner are all good to great STers.

Sign of Siliga being active this week?

I would have hoped they could have done this after the Packers game, now they can pick him up and question him. Like someone else said there could be more to this on the background.

What are they seriously going to get out of a career special teamer who played zero defense?

Jones still would have been in the meetings. So they could get the same from him as they would from Chung were he cut.

That's like saying we should never cut anybody because they could go to the team we are playing the next week.

It rarely happens in the NFL, we just think it happens more than it does because the Jets are so desperate when we play them.

I doubt that Don Jones going to the Packers would keep Belichick up at night.

I never said Don Jones would be of use to Green Bay.

But your assertion that he wouldn't know anything because he's a "career special teamer" was incorrect. He would have plenty of knowledge of how the defense works, the calls, the alignments, the terminology.

How much of that would be damaging if he signed elsewhere? That's an unknown but I doubt it's much of a consideration when releasing him.

God dang it, now they'll get the precious "information."

At this very moment he's probably being water-boarded in an aqua bathroom with orange details. Tannehill holding him down, Philbin manning the hose. Hickey is there, pacing up and down beneath a bare bulb, the ghost of a cigarette at his lips. Thinking: "I miss Incognito, Richie would have had this SOB singing his guts out by now."
