Good depth signing (actually was a franchise player at one point)
Spent 6 years at UT due to inuury, so he should have picked up some smarts by osmosis.
pats worked him out a week ago.

Trouble with Fells? Scaife seems like more than just OTA/mini-camp filler while Gronk recovers.
He's a step up from filler and is probably insurance/motivation for Fells(who hasn't been at OTAs so far). Scaife is 31 and didn't play last year so he's probably cheap

Look--don't flip out because they're signing an extra TE or 2. Right now, they need bodies. Alex Silvestro is there now, for Christ's sake.

Seriously? Belichick collects TE's like eight year olds collect baseball cards.
This cant be a good sign for Gronk and Fells, Scaife is a great value sign but the fact that they believe they need another TE isnt great news.

Note that I say speculate; none of us know shit. But if you're looking for something to be scared about, that's something.

Scaife was noticeably winded after lagging behind the pack in two penalty laps with the offense during 11-on-11 work late in practice, and came off the field shortly thereafter, with trainers offering him water as he took a knee on the sideline.

And many more head scratchers to come...
Why was this a head scratcher? They needed more bodies at TE to get through minicamp because their TEs are dinged up. They signed a veteran guy to help get them through camp so that they could have enough bodies at practice. It was also a lottery ticket to see if Scaife had anything else in the tank or anything special to offer the team. It looks like he didn't and that Gronk's ankle is recovering well, so they cut the fill in piece. Now they also have a book on Scaife should a TE get hurt early in the year and Scaife is still one of the options on the open market to come in and fill a role.
Is this really a head scratcher or something that a team with 90 roster spots should be doing at this time of the year?
