Apparently, Bill Belichick ordered the front office to sign any and all DL free agents and they complied.
Actually discussing any of the D lineman on the roster beyond Vinny may be a waste of time as the PUP list grows. Lets see, within 30 days about eleven of these guys will be cut or IR'd. so, lets go with Vinny at tackle or a nose depending how the wind is blowing and that is that.
The injury list changes by the hour so, all we can do is observe the head coach/GM and make one basic conclusion, he likes first round draft picks now doesn't he? A lot of these new guys were drafted high, little did they know BB was willing to wait 10 years to get them on the team.
Beyond the first rounder thing, everybody is hurt all the time or has only been in Foxboro for 48 hours...except for Vinny who shows up for practice all the time and meets a greets the new guys before they head over to the PUP, or the trainer's room, or the stationary bicycle...or better yet go look for Ron Brace and see what he is doing because we may have 20 or so D lineman in camp, but, about 9 and a half of them are wearing pads...oops forgot Vinny he counts for two so lets call it eleven and a half.
All this 3-4 or 4-3 talk might just end as they break camp in September with four healthy D lineman...I mean Vinny, his back up.and three other guys...maybe a -2-5? Lets have Vinny be the only guy with his hand down with ten DB's dropping. Good luck Sanchez.
If you are in your 30's, weigh over 275 and might have been a first rounder? Keep checking for messages...Vinny is waiting for ya..
