Patriots | Pass Looking Good - At Fullback

Sun, 19 May 2002 09:55:34 -0700

Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports for the Sporting News New England Patriots RB Patrick Pass continues to excel as he makes the transition to fullback on a full-time basis. Continued improvement would signal Pass could eventually be ready to take over from current starter Marc Edwards. Pass is quickly rounding into the fullback the team craves, one with a strong all-around game. The fullback needs to block and pass-catch well. Pass' soft hands and strong receiving skills make him a factor in the passing game and his straight-ahead running style makes him a viable option up the middle.

Patriots | Edwards Ready To Contribute

Fri, 06 Apr 2001 01:23:39 -0700

The Providence Journal reports New England Patriots FB Marc Edwards is ready to take over as the team's starting fullback. The chance to be a starter was a main reason he signed with New England. "They told me they are looking for offensive weapons to help Drew Bledsoe," Edwards said. "They are looking for more versatility from their players." Charlie Weis, New England's offensive coordinator, has told Edwards to be ready to work as a blocker, pass receiver and even a ball carrier. The offensive plan Weis is putting in place reminds Edwards of the West Coast offense the 49ers used in his years there. In the two weeks Edwards has been around his new teammates, he has been nothing but impressed. Edwards feels he is ready to block, run or catch the ball, as needed. Blocking is one area where he has improved.

Steve King reports for the Sporting News the Cleveland Browns are expected to pursue Bengals free agent RB Corey Dillon. If they don't go after him or another free agent RB, they may use the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft on a RB.

The Browns, as previously reported, need help at defensive tackle. Other needs include a weakside linebacker and a cover cornerback.
