Jeff Howe also mentioned that Vereen was getting reps with the fist team.
Well he made it through one practice without getting hurt!
Admirable attitude, still not loving him in 95 though.
This is starting to get a little easier the more I look at it. No need to waste a spot on Gerard Warren, he’s not going anywhere else.
This time around the tough cut was Dane Fletcher. The combination of Hightower, Cunningham and Tracy White left me without a spot for him. He’s no better than third at either inside linebacker spot. Cunningham has more versatility when comparing him to Fletcher in pass rush. So I like him, but basically Hightower is going to push him down the depth chart in multiple areas.
Defensively you have a number of guys who can do multiple things, especially in the secondary. Markell Carter was my surprise to make the team.
As for Andre Carter if he wants to come back to the Pats he probably can. It would be easy to PUP him and get him ready for the stretch run. But the Pats have protected themselves sufficiently should another team make an amazing offer.
