Continuing on the thread as week 3 just started. I’m going through our alumni are who currently fighting to make the 53 man roster or for a starting position.
Andre Carter wants to be part of a potentially special Patriot’s defensive line though in his belief, he hasn’t played to his potential in the preseason. Carter believes a move back to his natural DE position could again lead to a double digit sack season.
Donovan Edwards has progressed from his initial positioning on the 49ers’ 3rd team to the 2nd team and is now potentially in the mix to make the 53 man roster though he didn’t get into the game until the final 5 plays against the Raiders.
Jeremy Ross had big aspirations prior to week 2’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and didn’t disappoint with a couple of solid punt returns. One Boston writer feels Ross can be a good spark to the Patriots’ special teams during the year.
Lavelle Hawkins is currently battling Justin Gage for the #3 wide receiver position behind Kenny Britt and Nate Washington on the Tennessee Titans. One columnist says he did well to stand out this past week but another writer from MusicCityMiracles thinks less of the young receiving core of the Titans.
