The New England Patriots have announced on Thursday, October 12, that the team have officially inked tight end Will Tye and linebacker Trevor Reilly to its practice squad. In a parallel progress, the the defending Super Bowl champions have cut safety Alex Carter and listed offensive lineman Cole Toner on the practice squad injured reserve (IR) list.

Reilly is a familiar professional American football player around these parts as he has had a previous stint with the New England’s practice squad back in the 2016 NFL season prior to his eventual signing with the Miami Dolphins back in December. He has played in a couple of games for the AFC East nemesis. The linebacker is a former seventh-rounder of the New York Jets in 2014 NFL Draft and has a stint in a total of 31 contests with 11 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.

Reilly also played a role on special teams completing a total of 22 tackles in that department as well.

Tye, in the other side of the field, is an interesting inclusion to the Patriots given the health issues of the superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski and the uselessness of Dwayne Allen.

Tye is also most recognizable as a former New York Giant whom he played for for a couple of regular seasons. Back in 2016, the tight end caught 48 balls for 395 yards and a touchdown on 70 total targets.

After being waived by the New York Giants in early September during the final 53-man roster cuts, he stayed in the Empire State City being claimed by the the Jets and played for them in the 2017 NFL preseason regular season opener against the Buffalo Bills. His short stint with his new organization didn’t last long as he was cut on October 3rd.

The New England Patriots are prepping up for the Week 6 games of the 2017 NFL regular season against the New York Jets.

Dwyane Wade Cleveland Cavaliers Oct 22 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers have encountered something that has become equally usual over the three previous seasons in the league. After defeating the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks, the Cavs came across a major disappointment contest with a blowout home game loss to the Orlando Magic.

Developing agonies should be anticipated with this organization, given the number of turnover earlier this year. But one persistent through three matchups has been the campaign of the NBA star Dwyane Wade. He was limited to just 16 minutes on the floor against the Orlando and has faded to reach double digit figures in scoring at any contest this season so far.

The former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade has appeared out of manner offensively and usually takes hits that aren’t within the run of the offense. Wade shared his thoughts regarding his struggles so far, according a report from ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

I’m trying to find it, man,” Dwyane Wade said after scoring five points on 2-for-8 shooting against the Orlando Magic. “It’s very different, different than I’ve ever played. Just trying to find my way, as we go on, see how I can be best for this team. Everything’s happened so fast. This has been a long, a long week.”

Despite his endeavor to begin the season, the Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue is quite optimistic that Wade will be competent to find his tempo offensively:

“Just got to get him in positions to where he’s comfortable,” Cavs coach Lue said. “Right now we have a new offense, a different offense than he’s accustomed to running. We just have to put him in better positions to be aggressive and get to a spot. That’s not really an issue of mine or his. Just continue to keep playing good, team defense and his shot and his game will come around offensively.”

Wade is well-established to having the ball on his hands far more frequently than he had so far with the Cavs. With his former teammate superstar LeBron James during their prime in Heat as well as Derrick Rose alongside him in the starting five, Wade is near the lowest point of the wall when it comes to professional basketball players launching an offense. Most significantly with the ball club starting to go to Kevin Love in the post more during the two previous contests.

Should Wade was promised a starting job during negotiation with the Cavs, preserving that role may not be suitable in Lue’s decision. It must need to come from Wade should that is the case.

Wade playing with the second unit offense would enable him to have the ball in his possession more and provide the starting line more room with J.R. Smith. It’s very likely that the Cleveland just needed to try this strategy and have it fall in to their places.

At this phase of Wade’s NBA career his ability to build for himself and others is his greatest selling point and it isn’t currently being employed since he signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
