This is my thought as well. KC isn't real strong on the OL, and the Pats are really good, so it seems like a bit of an odd fit. But hey, if there's one position BB does well with, it's offensive linemen.Strange that the Pats are trading for an OL from the Chiefs of all teams when that appears to be a position of strength for the Patriots and weakness for Chiefs.
Indicative of Henry making good progress on his injury, and possibly ready to go for week 1 or 2?
Meh...I was hoping he'd be WR 5. Here we go again entering the season with a stumpy little 4 WR bench.
Perhaps....although if the plan was to have 5 WR why not keep a 5th and if a better one shakes free, then cut him.Unless they pick up another cut from another team. For example, I've heard that the Raiders might cut John Brown. If they do, maybe the Pats would give him a look.
Because they'd rather go with 4 without Wilkerson, but would prefer to go with 5 if someone better than Wilkerson became available.Perhaps....although if the plan was to have 5 WR why not keep a 5th and if a better one shakes free, then cut him.
I know we won't know until final cuts are announced but this sounds like someone who is not being cutBill Belichick on WR N’Keal Harry: “Had a good camp. I’m glad we have him. I think he’ll make a big contribution to our team. We’ll see how it all goes from a time standpoint, of when he’ll be able to get back on the field.”
And Schefter.Tom Pelissero has it and Jim McBride
Holy shit. If true, that is one outcome I did not see coming. A trade? maybe. Cut? No. They have to be in the market for an available veteran to back up Mac, right? Can't be an injury away from Hoyer.
Yes, news was breaking fast when I posted. Stunned, TBH. But like the move. Mac seems like he's ready to dive in, and another year of watching Cam was not filling me with warm and fuzzies.I mean, we can assume it's true. McBride, Pelissero, and Schefter have reported it (among other trusted sources I'm sure at this point).
This wouldn't surprise me at all, especially since Hoyer is paticularly unlikely to be grabbed on waivers and particularly likely to stick around and wait for the call post-handshake.Now watch BB cut Hoyer so that his initial (not final) 53 has only one QB.
Get an extra injured player thru to IR, then sign a backup QB when one gets cut today.
