The Patriots appeared to be admitting a mistake, when they released 2016 second-round pick Cyrus Jones at final cuts.

Now they’ve brought him back.

According to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, the Patriots have signed Jones off the Ravens practice squad.

Jones played sparingly as a rookie and missed all of last season with a torn ACL. But when you’re drafted 60th overall, you get more chances.

In the short term, he offers secondary depth and punt return abilities.

UPDATE 9:29 a.m. ET: To make room for Jones on the roster, they’re releasing running back Kenjon Barner, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

  1. I think it’s insulting that Tom Brady, the greatest QB who ever graced an NFL field with his presence, has to stoop beneath his level to play these wussy teams that clearly don’t belong in the same sentence as the back to back AFC Champs, soon to be 6 time World Champions and the NFL’s Greatest Dynasty.

    I think it’s long past time to fold them all and let’s get some new teams in here who will give the GOAT Tom Brady and the Patriots some real competition. The GOAT Tom Brady will appreciate it, as we all will.

    Brady correctly understands that Wussies don’t belong in pro football, they belong stuffed in the locker at school. Period. So get them OUT of our league.

  2. Between his return gaffs and injuries, he never got much of a chance to actually play corner. I have no problem giving him another shot, especially after seeing Bortles impersonate Johnny U. How much worse can he be?

  3. Patriots are constantly shuffling the guys on the practice squad based on week to week need. It doesn’t mean they are “admitting a mistake”, it means they have a need in the secondary this week with Patrick Chung concussed.

  4. BB has a soft spot for this kid. He was a mess bungling plays, got hurt, yet BB kept him. Now he’s back. BB must see something special about him and is nurturing him.

  5. So in 2 weeks your team has muffed punts, failed in coverage and shown a lack of overwhelming character/talent/motivation.

    Response: Let’s bring back a guy who muffed punts, struggled in coverage and has only shown underwhelming character/talent/motivation.

    Tom Brady deserves a raise. He carries that team.

  6. one of beligoat’s trademarks is that he embraces constant change and has no problem changing course or recognizing a mistake. if indeed this even was a mistake. he did what was best then and did what was best now. the results are clear- built the greatest sports dynasty in history.

    The ‘mistake’ was drafting him to begin with.
    The kid will make some plays before he is done.

  8. So in week 2 you have become some kind of all seeing,football guru wizard that is an expert fantasy football player and can tell if its going to rain because his elbow’re that guy.
