Patriots | C. Jackson unlikely to make team's final roster

Sun, 26 Aug 2007 21:17:17 -0700

Robert Lee, of the Providence Journal, reports New England Patriots WR Chad Jackson (knee) is a long shot to make the team.

Any chance we take him if he is cut?

NO! We have plenty of receivers.

Isn't he on the PUP list?

If he is they can not cut him.

Three options remain - activate him, place him on the reserve/PUP (which would sideline him until after Week 6), or move him to injured reserve, ending his season.

Or with 2nd round picks: Klemm, Hill, B Johnson and now Jackson.

Don't leave out Deion Branch and Eugene Wilson. Still, the 2nd. round hasn't been good to the Patriots and that's probably why they didn't pick a player in the 2nd. this year. :)

Yeah, but there are 4 busts in the second round.

Wilson I'm luke warm over. He is serviceable but without Harrison just a JAG.

LaMont Jordan was not traded.

LaMont Jordan isn't a starting NFL back by any means GreenMachine. The Raiders have figuered this out and that is why Dominic Rhodes was brought in. When he returns in Week 5, he will be starting by Week 6.

Either way, if Jackson is released it will be a horrible pick made by Patriots if they have to release him already. Schlegel was a horrible pick by the Jets, but Jackson would be a bigger waste.

Horrible pick is right.

Jackson doesnt want to stay on PUP and claims he can play. 3 different injuries in one season. Marques Colston had a hell of a rookie season. NE and NY missed on that guy.

It makes no sense to cut him.

He is signed through 2009. Short of an injury buy-out, the Patriots have no reason to cut him this year when they can IR him and have him comeback at full strength.

Something about receivers (Bethel) in the second round the Patriots fail to grasp.

Yes, but Jackson has threatened to file some sort of complaint with the Players Union if he winds up back on IR. According to him and his agent he is good to practice and compete for a roster spot.

NE may have no other option but to cut him.

Chad and his agent will file a grievance G...saying he IS able to perform

He is still getting paid. It is not like he is riding the pine for free.

Sounds more like Bethel Johnson whining about he wants a fair chance when the bottomline is he did not raise his game to get on the field.

So, a second year guy who was injured and slow to understand the offense has the balls to file a grievance? Good. I hope he loses the grievance and sits and pouts for weeks and weeks - only to be released once he's off of PUP. See yah.
