Is there anything more fun than attempting to predict what Bill Belichick does? Well, maybe. Nevertheless, here is my 2018 Patriots roster prediction. I thought I better get it out before any more players decide to retire or get the early ax so to speak.
During March the NFL expanded the helmet hit rule to include any player who leads with the crown of his helmet to initiate contact on any play. This new rule and the preseason calling of it has been the biggest story of the off-season. Many people are concerned with the NFL as we know it completely changing. I'm not one of them and here is why.
No, I’m not going to make up some crap about Gronkowski getting traded just to get hits. If you want to know my thoughts about that, read this post from early April. Besides Gronk, the other tight ends currently on the Patriots roster are: Dwayne Allen, Jacob Hollister, Ryan Izzo, and Will Tye.
By now everyone knows that as part of Brady’s restructured deal he got part of this year’s guaranteed salary turned into a signing bonus. The result of this move ends up having the $5 million in incentives not affecting this year’s cap. In reality, I think this slick move has the potential of saving the Patriots cap space if they need it.
Although I hate clicking on an article only to see that the title does not reflect the information included within, I’m doing that right now. Pictures of Brady and his bosses were taken Friday from the fan bleachers...no still picture taking rules. Unless you are a big time media organization based out of Bristol, CT, feel free to use my pictures. If you do, I’d appreciate some love (a link, a like, a share, a follow, use my links to shop). @BOSsportschick
