Is this to make room for former Rutgers OL R.J. Dill?

What is going on with this roster.


Maybe we have a deal in the works to bring Tebow back as our FB. One can only hope.

Not worried about his role because Michael Hoomanawanui can replace him, but now there is only two TEs/FBs on the roster for gameday with Gronk out.

Unless of course... Gronk plays week 1?!?

Um, no. And stop talking about Tebow, it's over.

If they wanted a non-Develin FB on the roster, they would presumably sign one who can actually play the position at a higher level. Not a guy who can't block or catch.

I will say this, I'll completely forgive the Pats for releasing Develin as long as they're signing Michael Robinson. Otherwise, I'm mad.

(As my adopted Patriot, Develin is the one player that I'm allowed to be illogically emotionally attached to)

Develin was pretty useless, I'm not sure what the attraction is. There are definitely guys on the street who can block or catch (or both) better.

I knew Richter would respond because he did the same in the other thread. Tebow is a funny distraction until the season starts.

Expect that the Patriots will sign another TE with Develin release, if they havenít already.

I thought that spot was filled by OL R.J. Dill? or does he not know that?

RJ Dill was a PSer, I thought.

And nooooooo...he was carrying the Brown flag Sad

Not sure if it's to the active roster or PS yet.

Pats announced the release but didn't announce an addition.
