If both guys are healthy, Shiancoe is a better player than Fells, though I don't know how much Shiancoe has left at this point

As someone who regularly names his fantasy team Mowatt's Patriot Missile, I approve of this comment.

I'm a bit curious as to why Clark didn't sign with us now. Maybe he didn't like the idea of being the third best TE on the team(at least at this point in his lengthy and impressive career.)

Maybe the Pats didn't want him after checking him out? Was there a report that he turned down an offer?

Very intrigued to see what happens.

What do you guys think the odds are that he's not on the roster to start the regular season?

Shiancoe is a good blocker and a much better receiver than Fells.
