New England Patriots 2018 roster breakdown:
#86 WR Paul Turner The New England Patriots currently have 88 players on their active roster. However Cheap New England Patriots Hats , only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns on September 1 and ultimately make the team. Over the course of the offseason, we take a look at the players fighting for those spots to find out who has the best chances of helping the Patriots recapture the Vince Lombardi Trophy.Today, the series continues with one of New England’s wide receiversName: Paul TurnerPosition: Wide receiverJersey number: 86Opening day age: 25Experience: 2Size: 5’10, 195 lbs.2017 review: After appearing in four games during his 2016 rookie season and catching nine passes for 126 yards, Paul Turner was unable to make the second-year jump in 2017: he injured his shoulder early during the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp and was forced to miss all of the team’s preseason. As a result, the Eagles opted to release him with an injury settlement in early September. It would take Turner four months to find a new team.After remaining unsigned throughout the 2017 season, the former undrafted free agent signed a one-year futures contract with the New Orleans Saints in January.2018 preview: Turner failed to establish himself with the Saints and was let go again after mandatory minicamp. This time Cheap New England Patriots Hoodie , it would “only” take him one month to find new work: in late July, the Patriots brought him on board. Joining a crowded wide receiver room at the time, Turner was projected as a long-shot to actually make New England’s 53-man roster. And even though the position has changed quite a bit since last month, Turner’s roster outlook has not.The 25-year old currently appears to be at the bottom of the depth chart, having played only 10 offensive snaps during the Patriots’ first three preseason contests. Turner, who also played 13 snaps in the kicking game, failed to register any statistics or stand out in any way. The best case scenario for him therefore appears to be the following: after his inevitable release Cheap Custom New England Patriots Jerseys , he gets signed to New England’s or another team’s practice squad.In order for that to happen, though, he will need to perform well during the preseason finale next week. Judging by his last three games, this is not guaranteed to happen.Robert Kraft becomes fastest owner to 300 wins thanks to Patriots’ 38-7 victory over Dolphins The New England Patriots defeating the visiting Miami Dolphins not only gave the team its second win of the season, it also brought owner Robert Kraft another record: no other owner in NFL history has reached 300 victories faster than the 77-year old. Kraft, who is in his 25th year of ownership and has won 10 conference title and five Super Bowls along the way, needed “just” 432 games to reach his 300th victory.For comparison http://www.newenglandpatriotsteamonline.com/ryan-allen-jersey , the two previously quickest owners to reach the plateau – the Denver Broncos’ Pat Bowlen and the Oakland Raiders’ late Al Davis – both needed more than 490 games to reach their 300th overall win:twitter.com/patriotsThe vast majority of Kraft’s 300 victories came of course under the leadership of head coach/general manager Bill Belichick and with quarterback Tom Brady at the helm – and during the salary cap era: with free agency and the cap designed to prevent teams from staying on top of the NFL hill for too long, the accomplishments of Kraft and his team become even more impressive.That being said, the Belichick Patriots are usually not high on individual accomplishments. All that matters is that after the final win of this season – ideally his 315th –, Robert Kraft will get the Vince Lombardi handed to him.
