Found April 29, 2013 on CLNS Radio:
With the NFL draft over and several undrafted free agents added to the roster, the New England Patriots released five players, who were on the bubble to make the 2013 roster. Released were CB Malcolm Williams, WR Jeremy Ebert, FB Tony Fiammetta, TE Brad Herman and DL Tracy Robertson. The most noteable names from this list includes Williams and Fiametta. Williams was a 2011 7th round pick by the Patriots and over the past two seasons spent most of the time on the practice squad. In career NFL games, he has recorded one special teams tackel. Fiammetta was orginally signed by New England before the 2012 season but was placed on the exempt/left squad list last August 4 and didn't appear in the game last season. He was activated from the reserve list on March 18 but wasn't expected to make the 53 man roster in September either. The Patriots haven't really used a fullback since Heath Evans left after the 2008 season. Herman, Ebert and Robertson were not expected to last long i...

Patriots might make sense for John Abraham

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes that free agent defensive end John Abraham would be a good fit for the New England Patriots. He made his tour of visits, and he’s been pretty firm with his asking price, but this still leaps out as a Bill Belichick move to me. He is always collecting veteran edge players who can add situational help, and the Pats are always in the hunt....

Patriots cut receiver Jeremy Ebert

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston, the New England Patriots have cut wide receiver Jeremy Ebert. Ebert could be mistaken for Wes Welker on the field; his size and frame have a similar look. Maybe off it also, as he’s heading out of town to make room for receivers Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce. Reiss writes: ‘Ebert didn’t make the Patriots out of training camp last season...

Belichick talks Jeff Demps trade and LeGarrette Blount

The Patriots were successful in their attempt to move running back/return man Jeff Demps after the Olympic Sprinter announced that his devotion to Track & Field would limit his time on the gridiron. In addition to Demps' open devotion to track, the Pats signed Pro Bowl return specialist Leon Washington this offseason as well. So the need to keep Demps quickly spiraled...

Could the Patriots have gotten another steal in the seventh round?

Getting drafted in the seventh round isn't exactly the greatest thing for players. Sure, it's great to say that you were drafted, but it's very rare that seventh rounders stick around. At least as an undrafted free agent you can chose a team where you might have a chance to compete. Just look at one of the Patriots seventh round picks last year, Jeremy Ebert, he'...

Jeff Demps won’t be available until mid-season

Patriots’ 2013 NFL Draft Class Has Boom, Bust, Boring Potential Written All Over It

There are many things you can say about Patriots head coach (and general manager) Bill Belichick, but when it comes to drafting, conservative is not one of them. It may appear that way when the Patriots are constantly trading down because it allows them to take more players, but typically the players they do draft are raw and let their workout numbers stand out just as much as their...
