Marquice Cole is the latest former member of the Patriots to change over to the opponents side the week of a matchup.

Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran said that Cole waited things out in New England, hoping the Pats would come calling in the postseason, but once it was obvious they weren't calling, Cole took the job in Denver.

So, can he help out the Broncos by giving them any tells or inside information about the Patriots?

Mike Felger, Rob "Hardy" Poole, and Steve DeOssie don't think so.

"Yeah, [he can help] as much as Ross Ventrone can help the Denver Broncos," Hardy said jokingly. "He's one of these guys who's in, he's out. Any meaningful help he's going to give them, I think John Fox and Peyton Manning are smart enough to figure that out on their own."

DeOssie agrees. There's nothing Cole knows that the Broncos don't already know or won't already know after a week of preparation.

"If you're not a smart enough coach or coaching staff to watch the unbelievable amounts of film and video that you have, and you need a guy to come in and tell you something that you can't see on the film. Maybe he can tell you some signal calls, but teams change up their calls all the time," DeOssie said.
