Kyed says Meyers is likely making team.
Agreed. But now they’re stacked at DB...though now they don’t have Crossen or Dawson. So...thinner. But still lots of quality players in the secondary. Like what Gunner brings. Just hate seeing Crossen emerge...with another team.Very happy "The Gun Show" (as McC calls him) made the team.
If this was, say, 2010 then Crossen makes the team (over someone like Terrence Wheatley) and Gunner does not.
Wow. "Beaten out by UDFAs Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski" is a sad coda to DT's career, if this is the endStunner
Source: The #Patriots are releasing WR Demaryius Thomas, who flashed in the fourth preseason game. He’s still working his way back to health.
Or they'd rather use a roster spot on someone else at another position and as a vested vet he's not subject to waivers so if no interest they can sign him after Week 1 and his salary is non-guaranteed.Doesn't sound like a lot of money if he returns to the receiver he was pre-injury. Sounds like they thought he's done.
According to ESPN's Todd Archer: if teams want to place a player on returnable IR, that player has to be on the 53-man roster for a day.
Right. I think this is the plan for DT. Saves a roster spot if they keep a player on the 53-man today (say, Froholdt) and then immediately R-IR him, then re-sign Thomas. It's a nice little way to stash a player you want in the organization, assuming the player you're cutting is on board with the plan.According to ESPN's Todd Archer: if teams want to place a player on returnable IR, that player has to be on the 53-man roster for a day.
So someone like Froholdt could be on the roster Sunday and on returnable IR on Monday.
