Why is Banta-Cain forgotten?


I was reading some patriots article and saw his name. Then suddenly I realized he is still available. Why has he not been picked up yet?

I found this article when he was released on 29th july.

It says he re-aggravated an abdominal strain and would be on the shelf for 4-5 weeks. 4-5 weeks? Is that such a bad thing? There must be more to it.

But if it is just a 4-5 week thing then why not pick him up. He would be an excellent backup to merriman. He doesnt have to start immediately. By the time merriman goes down banta-cain would hopefully be healthy.

I know kelsay is sort of untouchable for some reason. So i am not even going to suggest we can start merriman and banta-cain together.

This week's game showed us that without merriman we are very weak at generating pass rush still. I think this would be a good addition to the team. I would project these as our linebackers:

OLB - merriman, kelsay, banta-cain, batten, coleman

ILB - barnett, davis, sheppard, moats, white

The only significant cut would be torbor who is not good outside or inside.

So, does anyone know more about this? Why is he largely ignored by all the teams?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
