In a development that could mean something or could mean nothing (where should I put the Pulitzer?), the New England Patriots did not bring in any free-agent punters on Tuesday.
According to Nick Underhill of MassLive.com, no punters visited on Tuesday during the day. Underhill points out that there’s a chance a punter or two (or more) could work out tonight, with the transaction not showing up until Wednesday afternoon’s report.
It could mean that punter Ryan Allen’s shoulder injury isn’t as bad as expected. It could mean that coach Bill Belichick is comfortable with the idea of kicker Stephen Gostkowski pulling double duty (yes, duty) on Sunday at Denver.
It also could mean that, if Allen isn’t sufficiently healed by Friday, the Pats could bring in punters on the final day of the workweek and sign someone then.
Either way, don’t look for the Patriots to tell us anything until they have to tell us something. Which starts tomorrow.
