    Pats release Zach Sudfeld

    I know he hasn't done anything this season, but he's a beast and was all the rave in the preseason. A big, young weapon at a position we desperately need help at. Go get him!

    Sudfeld generated a ton of hype with a strong offseason and training camp, but appeared utterly overwhelmed once the regular season began. Sudfeld was a tidal wave of mistakes, dropping passes and running the wrong routes. The final straw was likely his muffed attempt on an onside kick Sunday. Injury prone in college, Sudfeld also dealt with a hamstring injury. Sudfeld should earn some looks on waivers, but he's proven without a doubt he's too raw to make an impact this season. His release isn't necessarily a sign Rob Gronkowski will return in Week 5, as Sudfeld played just eight snaps in Week 4.

    He also had some major injury red marks coming out of college, and as the rotoworld blurb states, he is pretty raw in the game. I wouldn't mind bringing him in, because he's young and plays a position of need, but there are plenty of red flags with him to make it understandable if we do pass up on him.

    Not every player that plays/played for the Pats is an automatic beast.

    He's got good size and plenty of talent. I was looking forward to seeing how he would do on the field at the same time as Gronkowski. It's true that he didn't look ready for prime time once the regular season started. And that onside kick muff was just brutal.

    Not being signed and being released are not the same.

    It'll suck if he ends up doing well somewhere else. Hopefully his poor play helps get him onto our PS instead of signed off of waivers. I think he's got a future in the NFL.

    I don't know what happened to the kid. In camp he caught everything and with "grace". The only thing I can think of is that maybe hi is mentally weak, he makes a mistake and that is all he thinks about and can't turn the page. You see it in corner's too, they get burnt and it showballs. Maybe a coach that will hold his hand and and a less strident qb will allow him to play his game.

    Just what we need. A slow, undrafted free agent who couldnt catch and had guys like matt mulligan playing over him.
