  • Patriots sign Atiyyah Ellison. Hasn't played yet this year and his only action came for Jacksonville in 2009. He was with Kansas City for a week in October, so he has SOME familiarity with the system, but not much. You have to be encouraged by how well these in season acquisitions have worked out so far, but our luck has to run out sometime.

    • I was suprised they didn't sign LeKevin Smith (in for a tryout the same time as Ellison) or look into Jarvis Green ( he is free right now isn't he?). Right now it's looking like Wilfork, Warren, Pryor as starters and a bunch of waiver pickups heading into the playoffs....uhg....

      Even if Mike Wright comes back he hasn't played in two months (or practiced). How effective can he be?

      • Jarvis Green can't sign with us because he's currently under contract by the Texans even though they're done...or something like that.

        • Jarvis is done. He was a great situational pass rusher type behind Seymour and Warren but he showed last year that he isn't a full time starter, especially now with his age. He probably wouldn't bring anything to the table that we don't already have.

          • I'm sure he is far less than he once was at this point. My thinking was that bringing in someone with an understanding of the system would add more value given the stakes.

            • If we could take him I'm sure we would. especially considering how dinged up at the position we are. Plus we are known to bounce people in and out of here like we did with Seau.

                Yup. I was sad to see him go, but at the same time it wasn't that hard to see this happening.

                      • God damn it.

                        Counter move is lifting Brandon Deaderick's suspension. Bit of a silver lining there.

                        • Well...they didn't have him for a very long stretch... But the idea of getting him back was something to look forward to. Oh well. Hopefully Deaderick bounces back from his suspension like a Patriot should.

                          • Sounds like the only reason Deaderick was suspended was an issue with alarm clocks/possibly opening up a roster space to sign someone while we wait to see on Mike Wright. Good to see us take concussions seriously, but this is very bad news. One of our best defensive linemen this year against both the run and the pass. Would have been nice to see him get some action with our improved pass rush and see how he fit in there. Myron Pryor can do the same type of things he does for the most part and we have him back, but he doesn't do them near as well.

                            • This is really starting to concern me. Were most likely going to have to play a strong running team in the first matchup, we need a healthy Dline.

                              • We've played the run better than we did with Mike Wright in. That's largely irrelevant to him and he can still help in that area, but still. Not a death blow for the run. More a bummer that he can't help.
