Wendell, 22, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Fresno State on May 2, 2008. The 6-foot-2-inch, 275-pound guard/center was with the Patriots throughout their 2008 training camp and was released on Aug. 26. Wendell was a four-year starter at Fresno State and was a first-team All-WAC selection as a senior in 2007.

Dillard, 21, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Louisiana Tech on May 2, 2008.

What to hell do they need another receiver for? The problems are not receiving the ball it is getting the chance to throw it to them. The O line needs attention not receivers.

Welcome to PSD, first of all. Second of all, I'm not sure how much we'll see Price, if we see him at all.

Well, unlike Chad Jackson, we don't have much money invested in this guy. But yeah, there are similarities there.

It's probably for depth, nothing more. I mean, I don't think that we're looking at the second coming of Jerry Rice here.

I would think Belichick has proven himself over the years. He has forgotten more about football that all of us know. I trust the man. There is obviously no one available who would help out the OL.
