    Yeah that one was bad, but end of day it didn’t cost a ton.

    Am I remembering incorrectly or was t he one of those ‘his position coach has ties to BB somehow, so he vouched for him’ deals?

    Not sure about position coach, but I do remember Seattle D-linemate Michael Bennett saying he’d stand out for the Pats.

    Bennett was right, but probably not in the way he expected!

    Marsh sounds like a peach:

    yeah, but I mean, he wasn't having fun. At least, not enough. Not when getting paid $450k to play a game for a living. That's the real crime here.

    Marsh played two snaps against Oakland. So this is kind of a chicken-and-egg problem. Was he cut because he got upset, or was he upset because he was clearly on the path to being cut?

    Both. The incident expedited his release. He sucked against the run and likely wasn't putting in the work to make himself better at it given his comments. Easiest decision Bill had all year.

    Marsh played 2 snaps because he had been well below replacement level all season for the Patriots. And the 2 sacks and 9 tackles he had after he joined the 49'ers just means he can a find a spot on a 6-10 team with the 25th ranked scoring defense. Most players cut by Bill don't have stellar careers after they leave; Cassius Marsh is not going to be the exception.

    My experience is that players are rarely super happy and comfortable on really good teams. Guys who don't get playing time are going to be unhappy. Also, only when a winning team is involved would this type of thing get media attention.

    He said BB put him in a lot of positions where it wasn't what he did well. Because if we all know one thing about BB it's not that he finds a role on a team for a guy doing the things they are good at.

    Marsh: “Just let me do my thing and get after the QB! Just set me loose Coach!”

    BB: “ But that makes everyone else have to scramble if you get too far upfield.”

    Marsh: “But that’s how I do me! We don’t need to set an edge if I’m hitting the QB every drop back. This edge thing is slowing me down and cramping my style!”

    BB: “rrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigggghhhttttttt...”

    This is funny. I wanted the guy to be good. Hey look a pass rushing specialist! Yay! From a strong D in Seattle?! Yay! But all i recall is him getting toasted on several seam routes in his short career here

    I like the sound of this, from Andy Hart's post-mini-camp Patriots stock watch:

    "Rob Gronkowski – Simply put, Gronk was by far the best player on the field for mini-camp practice. He had an obvious bounce in his step as he made plays all over the field. He was quite expressive both physically and vocally after many of his receptions. Whether it was big plays down the seam or fades in the end zone, Gronkowski was practically uncoverable (it’s a football word, just go with it) on the practice field."

    Brady has a couple of strong campaigns left in him. So does Gronk, if he stays in one piece (and FWIW at this point I’m on board with anything keeping him pliable and on the field). The Pats have a potentially monster O-line shaping up under Dante, and I see a lot of Brady to his queen-on-the-chessboard binky coming. Good times...

    BSJ noted that Gronk made a point of saying how "when you feel good, football is fun." Sounds like he was having lots of fun. Hence, he must be feeling good.

    Gronk with the Gronkiest wager ever on his namesake. How much?

    I saw the Gronk-Mayfield proposal referenced somewhere on SoSH the other day and thought it was a joke:

    Bryce Harper will today confirm that anonymous source is often a synonym for cowardly manipulators. And it seems awfully convenient that this one has the last solicitation-of-interest phone call coming one day before Gronkowski re-committed to the program.

    That said, I would not be surprised if they were shopping him before Gronk re-committed. Not for Mayfield necessarily, but just because. Sensible people here were asking for exactly that.
