Default Ben Watson?

Might not be thread worthy but I thought I would post it anyways. I guess Ben Watson could be cut because of a lock jam at TE in NE, but we kind of have the samething here. Still he knows McD and I wouldn't be shocked if he was cut and he ended up here.

Watson is a good TE.

Unless he's suffered from sort of knee injury or something, he would bring quite a bit to any team. [Edit: I just read the article and saw that he tore his ACL last year...oops!]

I think Thomas is the one on the block, not Watson. And Thomas is also a good TE. Like the article says, NE is stacked.

But I still don't think there's anyway that the Patriots cut Watson. Not with teams like the Eagles or Bengals dying for TE depth. At the very least, I expect NE to get a 4th or 5th round pick in return for Watson. Especially from the Eagles who have no hope of getting him off of waivers.


I wonder how Champ would feel if Watson did come here though?

I like Watson, but Scheffler is basically the exact same skill set. I'd rather keep him.

Graham, Scheffler, Watson, Quinn would be an amazing TE core.

I for one have always viewed Watson as a high quality TE.

... but yeah... I don't see NE giving away one of their former 1st round picks by cutting him, nor do I see them even getting rid of him unless they're robbing a team.

With Watson in Denver we have a hell of a TE core, all of them can block except Sheff and if we had a top notch QB.

We would be literally unstoppable.

Yeah, we need a 6th TE running a primary shotgun 3 wr set.

Has anyone actually SEEN Baevis' amazing offense? Sans Moss, Welker and Gaffney and watson?

It got stuffed by Spaggs.

With the state of free agency - Watson would be majorly overpriced. That means, even if he were available, there would be a bidding war for his services.

Wa already paid the bucks foor Graham, and I think he fits our game plan bettter than Watson.

He tore the ACL his rookie year, 2004, not last year. If not for nagging injuries every year since he'd probably be one of the premier TE's in the league (although not quite a top end receiver in the mold of of Gonzalez and Gates). Remember, NE let Graham go because they preferred Watson, and rightfully so based on potential at the time.

Under this year's rule change, it would have been Bronco's ball regardless of whether it crossed the plane or not. I think this rule change is a good one.

Even if Watson were to be cut, why in the hell would he sign with Denver? It's not like he is going to come in and supplant Graham from his starting position or remove Scheffler from the offense.

If Watson did sign with Denver his stats would look like this:

16 games played, 2 receptions for 21 yards, 11 special team tackles...umm, yea, that's going to get him paid next year

I can do that regardless but I was thinking you wanted a blue ribbon or pat on the back. Good for you! Keep it up. Here's to another empty thread.

No blue ribbon or a pat on the back. Just thinking that McD would grab a guy that he knows if he is cut to help the team. TE is a pretty strong position on our team already but then again so was LS.
