Eric McHugh of the Patriot Ledger analyzes the Patriots moves and says the roster redesign basically comes down to replacing Troy Brown and David Patten with Tim Dwight and now David Terrell.
Elsewhere, Mike Reiss of the MetroWest Daily News chats with veteran nose tackle Keith Traylor, who indicated he will return for a 14th NFL season after seriously contemplating retirement after the Super Bowl. "As long as the team will have me, I'm excited to come back," Traylor said.
The Attleboro Sun Chronicle's Mark Farinella has a mixed bag column that leads with the pluses and minuses of signing Terrell. He goes so far as to compare Terrell to Terry Glenn.
In a short commentary, Pro Football Weekly takes a look at the impact Terrell might have. Jeff Reynolds says Terrell made the"best move he could have made for his career" but wonders if the tall receiver will be a square peg in a round hole in the Patriots offense. Reynolds likes the signing and says there's little to no risk for the Patriots if Terrell is unwilling to pay the price of playing team football.
