Felt it was coming for Fells after playing during #TebowTime yesterday, he isn't a good enough blocker to make up for his lack of ability in the passing game... also it's a good sign that Gronk won't be placed on PUP.

Edit:

Patriots releasing TE Daniel Fells, per @RapSheet. Saves $1.25M in cash/cap space this season. Will count $333,334 against NEP's cap in 2014

Glad Fells is gone. Don't think he quite deserves all of the hate for last season though, considering his shin stress fracture.

Never liked the signing and still don't know what Belichick saw in Fells

Ballard gone too. That one surprises me a little more. There's not much at all separating Ballard, Fells, and Ho-oh, and Ballard was the cheapest and in my mind had the highest potential as he gained more strength in his knee.

Could mean Ho-oh is gone as well and the Pats are trading for a guy, though. Lance Kendricks is the guy I think they'd target, though I don't know if StL would make him available.

The only TEs on the roster are Gronkowski, Sudfeld and Hoomanawanui.

I see this as a huge positive about Gronkowski's health.

Might add a veteran in the next day or 2

Makes sense that Hoomanawanui is staying because during the Lions game after Sudfeld was benched, Hoomanawanui joined the first team.

No way they go into the season with just two healthy TEs. Surprising that they chose to cut Ballard AND Fells. If they do pick up a TE, I have to imagine that Ballard or Fells would be a better fit in the offense given their playbook knowledge.

Yeah, either from the roster cuts [should be a number of decent options] or like Sciz said, a trade is in the works but i agree that they will probably add someone. Even if Develin stays it doesn't make sense for them to play the first 2-3 [minimum] with just Studfeld and Hoomanawanui at TE.

Finally, Fells is gone. Waste of roster space. Ballard would have been nice, but he can't run anymore, and it's no surprise they dumped him. It's the Studfeld show now, until Gronk gets back.

Also, writing is on the wall for Tebow to move to TE. Very Happy
