    Jake Ballard signs with AZ

    Looks like Jake is heading to AZ now. Punk Belichick never used him nor had intentions of using him. Just wanted ot keep him away from NY.

    Nonsense. Ballard wasn't healthy enough to crack their 53, it's many weeks later now.

    Jake made out, right? By BB claiming he, he had to pay him, where as if no one claimed him and we signed him back, he would not have as much lettuce in his salad. Good for him.

    So you're saying Belichick took him to use him right? Knowing he had (at the time) Gronk and Hernandez on his roster for the TE spot.

    I am happy for him too, but NY has never really valued the TE spot.

    Gronkowski and Hernandez were both starters, so the Pats tended to carry at least four tight ends at a time. Ballard would've been a depth move.

    The Giants cut Ballard. I don't know how anyone can say that the Patriots took him off them. The Giants could've had him back this year if they'd wanted, instead they expressed zero interest.

    How does this make any sense?

    Keep him away from us when? Last season? He wasn't healthy enough to play.

    This season? He was cut before the season even started, so we could have had him back if we wanted him.

    How many times was Bennett thrown to last year?

    Their D is pretty damn good. If they can improve their O-line, and protect Palmer, they could make a push for the playoffs.
