    INDIANAPOLIS -- The New England Patriots have consistently made roster moves the day before games this season. Now, in a tough blow for receiver Tiquan Underwood, they've made one the night before the Super Bowl.

    The team released Underwood on Saturday, and promoted defensive lineman Alex Silvestro off the practice squad. The move was not discipline-based, but a pure football decision based on needs specific to the Super Bowl XLVI game plan, according to a source.

    Dolphins add Chad O’Shea as offensive coordinator; Tiquan Underwood offensive quality control

    Underwood moves into coaching after a nine-year professional playing career. He was a seventh-round pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009 coming out of Rutgers. After two seasons with the Jaguars, Underwood moved to the Patriots for the 2011 season before a two-year stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2014, Underwood started the summer with the Carolina Panthers but was released prior to the end of the preseason. He then joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Canadian Football League in 2015, playing into the 2016 season before being released. The Montreal Alouettes then picked up Underwood for the remainder of the 2016 season and brought him back for 2017. He did not play in 2018.

    There is no clear blueprint for a best coach. But, I've noticed that a lot of the best coaches come from fringe players. Guys who recognized they couldn't just get by on superior athletic talent, so they learned everything they could, mastered every technique possible, spent countless hours grinding and analyzing hoping to augment their athletic ability just enough to make the team, or start. Those guys struggled harder than anyone else and they seem to carry over that will to succeed into their coaching. Don Shula was one of those guys. He had experience in an NFL locker room but a nondescript career. Maybe Underwood will be one of those guys too. I'm eager to find out.

    Chad O'Shea isn't the biggest name hire, but he may be the one I'm most interested in seeing. That Patriot offense is not filled with great players. Yes, Brady is among the very best, and yes Gronkowski is probably the best complete TE ever, and yes guys like Edelman and Michel are good players, but there's an awful lot of role players playing very well in that offense, and it's not all Tom Brady. I'm curious to see whether Chad O'Shea is actually a budding star at OC … or just another Belichick family tree guy with mediocre production away from Belichick. If he's good of course, he'll leave in a year or two, if he's not, it's just another false dawn. But, this guy is an unknown at a position we really need someone to fix.

    Yep. Him and Kenny Britt tore it up for Rutgers with Schiano. He was the underneath possession type and Britt was the downfield guy. Back in the Ray Rice days.. Prob the only time they were good and cracked national rankings.

    Really sounds like Flores must be doing him a solid and giving him his initial start into the coaching ranks. Must like him and think he has potential as a coach.

    Thank heaven. This is what we needed. An entirely new staff. Nothing against Rizzi but we needed this.
