The Patriots entered the morning with 10 offensive linemen and only four cornerbacks. That doesn't make a ton of sense. They've made some moves to correct that today.
Pats have re-signed Marquice Cole and cut Josh Kline.
— Christopher Price (@cpriceNFL) September 2, 2013
This of course after releasing Marquice Cole just yesterday. This should have Patriots fans more at ease about the cornerback depth, I guess. Cole is not a guy you'd want covering anyone significant. His role with the Pats has mainly been on special teams, though he has improved in training camp and preseason.
If it becomes Cole vs a backup offensive linemen, the choice is obvious.
The Patriots ended up claiming two offensive linemen yesterday. They probably didn't predict landing both and released Cole to open up a roster spot. Kline will most likely end up back on the Patriots practice squad.

Tom Brady has a new commercial for Uggs. NFL AM had an exclusive peek at the commercial below that shows Brady in Uggs going through various stages of his sports life:
Brady catches a lot of heat for rocking the Uggs but the commercial is actually well done. I still won’t be rushing out to get a pair though.
The Patriots have brought back the one wide receiver who made Tim Tebow look good throughout the summer.
New England signed Quentin Sims to the practice squad, according to a source. Sims had a breakout fourth preseason game, catching three passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns, all from Tebow. Sims also caught one pass for 14 yards in the Patriots’ third preseason game against...
The Patriots ran 1,191 plays from scrimmage during the 2012 season, which was just nine short of the all-time NFL record (1994 Patriots). It will be difficult for them to mimic that speed again this season. Wes Welker and Aaron Hernandez are gone and Tom Brady is working with an almost entirely new cast of characters at wide receiver — most of whom are rookies. So, even if speed...
The Patriots are continuing an aggressive offseason of cuts and waiver moves with a recent contract restructuring of Michael Hoomanawanui's contract. According to ESPNBoston, Hoo-Man was set to earn $1.3 million in base salary this year; however, with the new contract, he will be most likely receiving less than that.

One of the biggest stories this offseason was the nearly complete revamping of the New England Patriot receiving corps. While no one doubts the ability and resolve of Tom Brady, somebody still must catch the balls he throws. In addition, he lost his primary third down outlet in Danny Woodhead.
