So just when you thought the New England Patriots were officially stock-piled on the offensive side of the ball, they go out and sign another offensive piece, former Tennessee Titan tight-end, Bo Scaife.
The Patriots have been on attack-mode this offseason. They just keep adding weapons to put into Tom Brady’s arsenal. After the signings of top-tier possession receiver Brandon Lloyd, and veteran wide-receivers Donte’ Stallworth and Jabar Gaffney, Bill Belichick and company just couldn’t resist another tight-end to go along with Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
Why not bring in another veteran player in Bo Scaife who is hungry to potentially get a ring on his finger? These acquisitions of veteran players will make for interesting battles over the next few months for not only starting positions, but for second and third string spots as well. Hypothetically, if I were not a 6’0, 175 pound white kid, and I somehow were a 6’3 250 pound man, like Bo Scaife is, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but New England under the tutelage of Bill and Tommy. It’s all about the rings and the Patriots look to be heading back to the playoffs without question.
This New England offense is a juggernaut and there are only so many players who can wrap their brain around how it works. Chad Ocho-cinco will have an additional offseason under his belt to attempt to squeeze himself into Tommy’s stat lines. Brandon Lloyd will surely work his way into the mix leaving little room for other receivers.
Tom Brady threw for a ridiculous 5235 yards, and 39 touchdowns last season. He is equally as responsible as Gronk himself for making Gronk a nation-wide celebrity. Gronkowski caught 17 touchdowns and fellow emerging tight-end Hernandez caught 7.
Although Wes Welker and the Patriots don’t have a new deal inked, I couldn’t imagine Welker playing anywhere but New England. Welker has become Tommy’s best friend on the field, even if he did drop that huge ball in the Super Bowl.
Sure its only June, but these next few months will be interesting in New England to see who ends up where on the depth-chart.
