Patriots are cleaning house. Maybe Ocho will need some of Evelyn’s book money after all.
After years of overweight underperforming, Albert Haynesworth has finally been dropped by the New England Patriots. The experiment to rejuvenate his career and somehow get the Pats defense on the right track has come to an end. But his underperforming and bad play finally cost him his last chance to play in the NFL. Here’s what the Patriots’ coach said:
“I’ll just say this on the Albert situation: I thought that both he and myself — speaking for the (coaching) staff — we really tried to make it work,” Belichick said. “He had a few physical limitations to overcome when he got here, but I thought he really tried to do what we asked him to do. We tried to work with him. In the end, it just didn’t work out. I think the best thing we could do was just move on.”
But here’s the most important nugget: is OchoCinco next? The Patriots dropped Randy Moss last year out of nowhere and Chad has played like garbage this year. And not catching a single pass on Sunday will only make matters worse. Is OchoCinco on the chopping block? Sound off!
