Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Brian Waters' future with the Patriots.
2. With RB Joseph Addai released, what now for the team's running back corps?
3. Shuffling along the offensive line and how it comes together.
4. Brandon Lloyd and what he might bring to the receiving corps.
5. What's up with all the tight ends?
