    Pats will be just fine with Ballard

    They should still remember some of his great highlights, like this, this, and especially my particular favorite, this...

    You don't know very much about the Pats roster. Plus, the Pats could scour the waiver wire around cut time for bodies.

    Ballard To The Rescue ?

    He passed His physical and was taken off the PUP list. If BB hadn't of Scooped up Jake when He did, The TE's coach of the Patsies would really be screwed right now.

    Ballard is a blocking TE.. The dude ran a 5.0 40 before the injury.. Replacing gronk no the thug with him is a huge downgrade

    This, Jesus. Ballard is solid but he isn't in the same area code as Hernandez.

    ACL with microfracture surgery.
