    From the day after week 3 of the season is complete, the order is based on the W/L of the teams.

    Prior to that, it is based on the drafting order.

    Probably because they're too heavy..... "ba-dum-bum-CHING"

    Exactly. We won the SB so every other team has priority based on their standing at the end of last season.

    If he is suspended they are not responsible to pay him so it cost them nothing.. and he is better than anything else out there so... for a 5th WR option he is a damn good option... (and they had over 8 mill in cap space)

    Also since he was under Charlie in ND he knows the terminology the pats use. Per aweis he feels he knows 75% so he be ready go a lot faster.

    They have not given him a new contract he is just here for the season and playoffs☺️.

    To bring in a FA this time of the season is pointless. It takes time to learn the system and the playbook. Then you have to cut or wave someone to make room. With Forsett, The need and experience with Kubiak make him an exception.

    We just brought in Marlon Brown. Not sure adding WR #42 will save the season.

    It is just too late, too much a newbie needs to learn to matter, even if they would otherwise be a better player (I am sure a street player could be a better RT but would be worse for the offense)

    Just so cray, cray, isn't it?

    No kidding. So he didn't learn after the first DUI so he gave it another whirl. No thanks.

    How come he hasn't been suspended though?

    Apparently we do, because DT is now persona non grata according to some here.

    Yeah, we really need ANOTHER wide receiver......

    All we need is a couple more and we can line them up at every position on offense, that'll be fun

    It's based on this seasons records. Pats were 31st or 32nd (depending on where the Cowboys stand), so every other team passed before the Pats picked him up.

    To me, as a Pats fan, it indicates how thin they are at wr and how likely they think Amendola will be available I the post-season.

    I myself like their chances, there is no really scary D this year and the only one that does scare me (Denver)would have to come to the Razor where I like our chances.
    It's all good. Here's to Denver going Razor on the Pats.
