Patriots sign Forston to P-squad; release Quarles

FOXBORO -- What could be gleaned from Patriots practice attendance was confirmed by the team: Rookie defensive tackle Marcus Forston was signed to, and safety Cyhl Quarles was released from, the practice squad Friday.
Forston was released just Wednesday. The 22-year old originally came in as a rookie free agent in May of 2012. He was inactive for the first two games of the regular season and made his debut on defense and special teams Sunday against Baltimore.
Quarles, released by the Ravens in August, didn't get any game snaps for New England.

Giardi and Mayo also discuss Cyrus Jones, who had a rough rookie year for the Patriots. Jerod thinks he could make a major leap in his second season and play a huge role.

On Malcolm Butler, Mayo has one piece of advice - stop being so emotional! He talks about how Butler has no leverage as a restricted free-agent, and the Patriots are in the right. Mayo stresses to Butler that insurance can offset any fears for playing for what he believes his market value is.

 Giardi goes 1-on-1 with Saints reporter Nick Underhill about the latest rumors from the owner's meetings regarding Malcolm Butler, and how his acquisition could prevent Drew Brees from considering going to a title contender when his contract is up in 2018.
