Street, 26, is a veteran of three NFL seasons. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder, was drafted by Dallas in the fifth round (146th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh. He was released by Dallas on Sept. 3, 2016. Street joined the New England practice squad on Sept. 5, 2016, and was signed by Indianapolis to the 53-man roster off the Patriots practice squad on Sept. 21, 2016. Street appeared in five games for the Colts last season and caught one pass for 20 yards. He was released by the Colts on May 1, 2017. In three NFL seasons, Street played in 36 games with two starts and caught 10 passes for 152 yards with one touchdown. He also appeared in two postseason contests for Dallas in 2014 and did not accrue any statistics.
Exactly right, Stan. No sooner does the draft end than coaches and GMs are busy dialing up rookies who weren’t selected in hopes of luring them to their teams as “priority free agents,” as they’re widely known in the business. Generally, those calls and agreed-to signings are completed over the next day or so, but the Patriots usually wait to announce their list until the entire rookie class arrives at the end of the following week.
The past few days, players were given time off to deal with what can be an onslaught of requests from family and friends to arrange for tickets and accommodations for the Super Bowl. March Madness can bring out school pride in its purest forms, and with your Patriots alma maters well represented in the initial bracket, players were of course cheering on their teams. Tuesday afternoon both ends of that passion were on full display as more than 1 million fans lined the streets of Boston to celebrate the Patriots fifth Super Bowl victory with the emotional players and coaches.

A team that has won as often as the Patriots have won, especially over the past 25 years, has done something right. Or perhaps, they’ve been privileged to have hired and brought in personnel that have done things right. And it had to start somewhere.
It’s one thing to note a great career. It’s another thing entirely to show someone who, if it weren’t for their presence to begin with, is responsible for the resurrection of a moribund organization that could only once dream of dominance. And in turn, someone who is indirectly responsible for the many great players and coaches to follow his initial influence on the team so many years ago.
How else can you explain the smallest draft-haul in franchise history over the past weekend, with a grand total of four ex-collegians ready to join the ranks of a defending Super Bowl champion? That is, if they even make the final squad.
How else can anyone explain why the New England Patriots jersey cheap had a mere 50-70 college players on their draft board they seriously considered before the draft started? Or, that the Patriots didn’t seem too bothered by the relatively paltry total of six selections to make (which they didn’t) in the entire 7-round draft?
Hence that awkward, anticipatory feeling of “hurry up and wait” that has descended like an isolated storm shower hovering over Gillette Stadium. It’s football purgatory; a bottomless pit of anticipation, hope and desire, waiting for the ground to settle below us so the climb to the top can begin. LeShun Daniels Jr. – Warren G.

Put aside, if you can, Peterson’s suspension from the league for 15 games in 2014 due to child abuse allegations. Not that anyone should ever put anything aside like this, but for the moment simply consider only the football side of this equation.
I’m all for athletes going after what the market will bear when the time is right – after all, the sobering news from former 49er star tight end Dwight Clark this weekend (he announced he has ALS, potentially caused by playing football) simply reinforces the brutal nature of the sport and the potential after-effects of its punishment to the human body.
I have a fairly strong hunch – no real facts to base this hunch off of, but a simple thought based on their personalities – that Jay Cutler is going to start out as a better TV game analyst than Tony Romo.
