Brandon Deaderick DL JAC Oct 29 '11
Patriots activated DE Brandon Deaderick (shoulder) from the PUP list.
A seventh-round pick a year ago, Deaderick came on late in the season, tallying two sacks in 10 games while playing well in New England's Divisional Round loss to the Jets. He should be used as a rotational pass rusher.

Patriots placed DE Brandon Deaderick (shoulder) on the reserve/PUP list.
He'll be eligible to return in Week 8 against the Steelers. A seventh-round pick last year, Deaderick was productive in parts of 10 games, tallying 10 tackles and two sacks. Although he wasn't believed to have a roster spot sewn up heading into camp, he now seems likely to stick with the Pats all season as long as he gets healthy.

The Boston Globe believes DE Brandon Deaderick's spot on the Patriots' 53-man roster could be "iffy."
A rookie seventh-round pick last season, Deaderick drew a four-day suspension between the end of the regular season and New England's playoff loss to the Jets for a "violation of team policy." He was productive in parts of 10 games, however, notching 10 tackles and two sacks. He'll likely be back.
