Troy Brown and Bob Ryan join Gary Tanguay on Sports Tonight to discuss what's going on with Wes Welker and the Patriots.
Bill Belichick isn't giving any answers -- per usual -- so the panel is forced to speculate.
Are the Patriots trying to move on from Welker and seeing if Julian Edelman is the man for the job? Is there something person between Welker and the Pats because of their offseason?
Troy Brown has his take, and being a former player in the league, knows what he's talking about.
Does Tom Brady have a real say in what happens? Brown says it comes down to Belichick at the end of the day.
Jeff Howe joins Sports Tonight to explain why he agrees with Mike Felger that Bill Belichick mismanaged the QB snaps vs the Panthers.
Our Sports Tonight crew debates whether they agree with Colin Kaepernick's protest, and if his job should be in jeopardy because of his actions.
The Patriots announced three roster moves on Monday night. Two resulted in players parting ways with the team. The other opened a roster spot without a departure.
In addition to releasing both defensive tackle Terrance Knighton and center Bryan Stork, the Patriots also placed guard Tre' Jackson on the reserve/physically unable to perform list.
Jackson began training camp on PUP, and he has not practiced with the team since camp kicked off. Now that he is on the reserve/PUP, the second-year player out of Florida State will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the regular season, but he will not count against the active roster during that period.
Jackson, a fourth-round pick last year, played through knee issues at times as a rookie, seeing action in 13 games and starting in nine. He has been spotted on the practice fields this summer, but he has been limited to warm-ups and conditioning work.
In his absence, the Patriots still have depth at guard, which may have had something to do with the team's willingness to make Jackson unavailable for almost the first half of the season. Rookie Joe Thuney looks like he will be the starter at left guard, while Josh Kline could be the option at right guard to start the season. Jonathan Cooper and Shaq Mason are dealing with injuries at the moment, but they both returned to the practice field on Monday, and they also have a shot at the right guard job. Rookie sixth-rounder Ted Karras could also factor in as a reserve at either guard or center if he makes the club.
The Patriots currently have 80 players on the active roster and need to reduce that number to 75 by 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
