James Develin seems to be joining the tight end mix

Photo via patriots.comWith Rob Gronkowski recovering from a torn ACL and... yea, thats it for tight end. So the Patriots have a big hole to fill. They did resign Hooman and have two undrafted rookies (Justin Jones and Asa Watson) looking to make an impact. But that doesn't seem to be quite enough at tight end.Throughout the spring it seems James Develin has been practicing...

Ugly Bowl Voting: AFC North

Holy ****, guys.  You want an intriguing voting process, fraught with drama, excitement, and wonder?  Forget Deadspin and Dan Le Batard’s stupid Baseball Hall of Fame stunt, The 2013 National Football League Ugly Bowl is where the real magic happens.  Last week, Nick Folk handily defeated the Patriots’ James Develin by a healthy margin, but the matchup the world was watching...

Patriots longshot FB Develin never gave up

The fullback with the Ivy League engineering degree wouldn't be stopped. James Develin kept moving his legs after being knocked back on his leap with the ball at the 1. More than half the defenders hit him. None could keep him from scoring. The play that began at the left hash mark ended about halfway to the left sideline. That's where Develin finally fell into the end...

Do whatever you do, like New England’s James Develin

Watch New England Patriots’ fullback James Develin’s touchdown run against the Houston Texans. Then you’ll know what I’m talking about. I love that my kids love football.

Wondering what the trickle down effect is when Gronk and...

Wondering what the trickle down effect is when Gronk and Amendola come back. Most specifically how does it affect Edelman, and how does it affect their preference to run 11 and 12 personnel? And what about James Develin? Will he still be needed? How about Hooman? There will still likely be a rotation but Amendola’s return has to come at the expense of someone’s snaps, likely...

Patriots release James Develin

The Patriots continue to tweak their roster, a process that isn't likely to stop at any point. Fullback James Develin is the latest casualty.
