Sure, why not...

It will be interesting to see who gets the axe to take his place. It might be a straight swap with Hoomanawanui after his sub-par play, but the roster is still unbalanced with a 26/24 split favoring the defense, so maybe someone like Forston gets cut. Wouldn't be surprised if it was Lex Hilliard either.

Don't get why we signed Fells at all.

If he's still injured... maybe it's an excuse but still.

Meh. I'd rather keep Hoowhahapowpow than Hilliard. Hilliard has looked deplorable.

Don't know yet. If Winslow wasn't such a big name, we wouldn't have even know that he's been signed yet. Does BB meet with the media today?

Michael Hoomanawanui's days with the Patriots are numbered. Or should be. Brutal vs. Arizona.

But he gets one more week since he was signed off a practice squad. Ideally, Fells will be active and Ho-ho will be inactive this weekend.

We signed him off the Redskins practice squad.

Oh ok. Why do we have to wait one more week to cut him?
