Hello Gerard Warren My Old Friend
In a move that I predicted when he was cut before the season-opener, defensive tackle Gerard Warren is back with the New England Patriots.
It was such a foregone conclusion that apparently he already had some of his stuff remaining in a locker at Gillette Stadium, talk about job security.
Fellow lineman Landon Cohen was released earlier in the day so naturally reports began to surface almost immediately that Warren was back. He was probably just chilling at Patriots Place, watching movies on Bob Kraft's dime and crushing mad food.
Albert Haynesworth and Mike Wright missed Sunday's loss in Buffalo so who knows what their status will be this week as the team travels to Oakland on Sunday? Regardless, the Pats need more bulk up front to maybe tighten up the front four and prevent running backs (like Darren McFadden and Michael Bush) from gashing them for routinely huge gains.
The other news of the day is that New England will wear their Pat Patriot red throwback uniforms a week from Sunday (for the only time this season) at home against the New York Jets. Love those jerseys, I'm surprised that they're only wheeling them out only once.
Bill Belichick and Co. get back to the practice field tomorrow as they prepare for the Raiders (2-1). Injury updates and other roster moves will be reported as they happen.
