New England Patriots 2018 roster breakdown: #96 DE Geneo Grissom The New England Patriots currently have 89 players on their active roster. However Limited Rex Burkhead Jersey , only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns over the next two days 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 a player returning from injured reserve.Name: Geneo GrissomPosition: Defensive edgeJersey number: 96Opening day age: 26Experience: 3Size: 6’4, 265 lbs.2017 review: Geneo Grissom’s third year in the NFL started with him getting released during the Patriots’ final roster cutdowns. However, he made it through waivers unclaimed and was subsequently added to New England’s practice squad. The former third-round draft pick was promoted to the 53-man roster after the first two weeks of the regular season and appeared in New England’s next four games as a primary special teamer.However, the Patriots decided to release Grissom again in early November before re-signing him to their practice squad once more. Not even a month later, he was back on the active roster: New England promoted him ahead of its week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills to serve as depth at the defensive edge and, as usual Josh Gordon Jersey , in the kicking game. Grissom remained on the active team for the remainder of the season.Overall, the Oklahoma product appeared in 11 games over the course of the season, playing a combined 202 snaps in the kicking game (of 540; 37.4%) and registering three tackles. Grissom also saw some defensive playing time: he was on the field for a total of 37 snaps – 10 of which coming in the Patriots’ divisional playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, a game during which Grissom registered 2.0 sacks.All in all, though, the 2017 season can be seen as another rather disappointing one for a player that once was a day two draft pick.2018 preview: Geneo Grissom’s fourth year in the NFL could start like his third one: with him getting released during the Patriots’ final roster cutdowns. This time around, however, he will not be able to join the team’s practice squad as he is no longer eligible. This means that his tenure in New England could very well come to an end later today – and judging by his summer Authentic Phillip Dorsett Jersey Salute to Service , this would not be too big of a surprise.Grissom would not go down without a fight, though. Playing 131 of a possible 284 defensive snaps (46.1%), he registered 10 tackles, a sack,aforced fumble and a recovery that was almost returned for a touchdown. In addition to his contributions on defense, he also was again a regular in the kicking game. Ultimately, however, this may not be enough to make New England’s deep defensive edge rotation. For most of the night Limited Danny Shelton Jersey , Super Bowl 53 between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams was a defensive battle. As a result, the game entered the fourth quarter with both teams sitting at just three points. After punting on each of their first three possessions in the second half, however, the Patriots made a key offensive adjustment to generate some positive momentum after struggling to a certain degree for the game’s first 45 minutes.“I think the real key breakthrough came when Josh [McDaniels] went to the... McDaniels made a great adjustment,” said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick in the aftermath of his team’s 13-3 victory. “We talked about that on the sideline. We went to a two tight end offense but we spread them out. We were able to complete some passes to Julian Edelman and then to Rob Gronkowski at the goal line to score.”After the Rams were forced to punt for the ninth time in their first ten possessions, the Patriots implemented the change to get favorable matchups with the defense’s linebacker corps. The result was the game’s first touchdown drive, a five play 69-yard sequence that saw New England generate three chunk plays: two passes to Gronkowski for 18 and 29 yards and a 13-yarder to Edelman helped set the team up on the L.A. 2-yard line.One play later, rookie running back Sony Michel was able to finish the series by bursting into the end zone to give his team a 10-3 lead and score what would turn out to be the only touchdown of the 53rd Super Bowl. “It was really well executed Jason McCourty Jersey ,” said Belichick about his team’s offense changing on the fly. “Not something we had anticipated doing a lot this game. We did it against Kansas City, but it was kind of right time, right situation.”How were the Patriots able to pull it off? For Belichick, it all starts with execution. “We had good protection to be able to make those throws. Tom Brady did a great job getting the ball to the open guy — that was a great throw he made to Gronkowski to get it down to the 2-yard line,” said the future Hall of Fame coach. “Josh McDaniels did — as usual — an outstanding job of play calling and eventually finding things that worked and made some big drives for us.”“Running game at the end, we were able to knock out a couple of big runs when we were backed up and then really got the ball back until we had the 10-point lead,” continued Belichick. Indeed, New England’s next possession after the touchdown also was a positive one: after an interception by Stephon Gilmore set the team up at its own 6-yard line Troy Niklas Jersey , New England was able to drive 72 yards in nine plays to take 3:05 off the clock.The Rams received the football down 10 points with only 1:12 left to go — a situation they would not be able to turn into a positive result. Consequently, New England is now able to celebrate another championship and the adjustment made by the team’s offensive staff in the fourth quarter plays a big role in this.
