News Blitz 7/15: Six defensive tackles could be in line for roster spot

Posted Jul 15, 2014

The Patriots.com News Blitz gets you up-to-date on the latest Patriots news from local and national media.

Erik Frenz of Boston.com believes that as many as six defensive tackles could crack the Patriots 53-man roster.

"With some question marks around the health and readiness of Tommy Kelly and Dominique Easley, the Patriots may be willing to carry more defensive tackles to start the season," writes Frenz. "Until we've seen Armond Armstead practice, it's hard to project him for the final roster." READ MORE>>

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports that Patriots first round draft pick Dominique Easley returned to Florida to work with trainer Tony Villani following mini-camp.

"He was looking real good," Villani told the Providence Journal on Tuesday. "You've still got a couple months until the season and they’re important, but he’s in the last stages of getting that confidence and pop back so he can do whatever he wants with that knee." READ MORE>>

Nick O'Malley of MassLive.com considers Patriots RB Brandon Bolden to be on the roster bubble.

"Bolden isn't the type of electric runner that will outclass Ridley on first and second down (Say what you want about Ridley's ball-carrying abilities, he's a talented runner)," writes O'Malley. "At the same time, Bolden does serve as a solid depth option in the backfield. He's not a gamechanger, but he isn't a liability when called upon to take carries." READ MORE>>

Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com considers RB Stevan Ridley among the Patriots players with something to prove this season.

"The opportunity to render 2013 an ugly memory is upon him," adds Curran. "And it would be good for business. Ridley is now 25 and entering the final season of his rookie contract. Running back dough has dried up on the free agent market but Ridley’s potential is high enough so that he’d be among the best options out there. If he proves he won’t drop the ball." READ MORE>>

Christopher Price of WEEI.com calls D.J. Williams the key new player for the Patriots at tight end.

"The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder played two games with the Patriots last year, but could be a part of the mix in 2014 if New England chooses not to sign one of the veteran tight ends still on the market," writes Price. READ MORE>>
