Tom E Curran breaks down which Patriots are in danger of losing a roster spot.
-- Tom we're talking about players that are on the proverbial bubble let's start. With a guy news. -- most of sombre I don't just mean as friends but also. But in -- now from an ankle when has he done enough to make this team to get to show up geographically close yeah he's GA -- He has been geographically almost intimate but I'm not sure that intimacy is going to be enough and we because the versatility. Needed on the Patriots offense applies to you right now -- dealt to play multiple positions Dan Connolly. You play multiple positions can't -- in the center -- center only you're gonna play one position you better be a hands down best data on your roster and I'm not sure Ben -- Continues to. Beat I hope to work with a first vehemently. He's got opportunity tonight to solidify his position and I'm I'm glad I don't endorse all of Tom parents. Thomas -- I think it's more likely he makes a team and not much. It's certainly over 30% please excuse OK we've Benetton -- time on wide receiver obviously some people projected as many as seven guys to make it. Jabar Gaffney a guy who noted on the bubble not simply cannot because the entry Donte' Stallworth another guy your thoughts and we're -- we're stands right now. The way I look at it Donte' Stallworth is being number one backup. To Brandon Lloyd plays the same position has the same level with speed and athleticism. The other wide receivers are more similar in terms of gap -- branch and so when I look at that position I'd say okay what happened to what goes down. -- back up it will probably be Donte' Stallworth could not in the Matt Slater is a key special team. Long round of always saying that I think it's always plays football for the Patriots. And you believe it -- there as well. I do I think they're gonna have to find their custom was so it's starting quarterback and Augusta might -- is fifty. Evident by the ability without a Alfonzo -- the rookie seventh round graphic obviously got good enough for character concerns off field stuff would have been higher draft pick. Finally get back out to practice this week is he on the bubble and a guy have to show some tonight we saw on grass -- -- that he's gonna play. No I think -- should be fine to make this team I think that he shown that he can do that personal god similar Kyle Arrington. Can play inside play outside that's our position. The matches up against the slot receiver so I mean. That we like him you don't want -- wanna get arrested a week with a draft it's generally just a learning process what's I think is he's a lot better than a seventh round pick and he -- up. I'm curious about the quarterback -- receiving Belichick over the years. Almost start to set the trend two quarterbacks that time he did -- would Brady and where one year I'm. As Ryan -- Any way shape or form in trouble if he doesn't perform well earlier in the final two pre season games. When you look at how Belichick admitted that thing and obviously some of the national rumblings about O'Malley had a good camp which as we've seen. It's not the takes. I think that it would be a starter Ryan now was somehow released the reason being Bill Belichick of course a lot of problem up. There's been no indicators that they're dissatisfied with -- anything. And if you watch closely enough Bill Belichick has a lot of things but -- -- on dishonest. And I think that if he was gonna pace subsonic compliments. To mallet. To find a way to get him on the team and I think got to be the case.
