New Can of Worms for Patriots?

Just as Spygate seems to be winding down, there’s new reports of more NFL rules violations by the Patriots. Ross Tucker – a veteran of seven NFL seasons with five different teams – has come out and said the Patriots allowed players on injured reserve to practice, which is against NFL rules.

Matt Walsh had originally claimed that the Patriots not only let IR players practice but they did what they could to hide it.

Tucker said before the 2005 season he witnessed first hand the Patriots practice and quotes veteran WR Troy Brown as saying, “Everybody does it.”

After Walsh brought up the subject, the NFL said it would investigate.

My Take: We’ll see where this goes, but it wouldn’t surprise me if most other teams did this. This is just more dumping on the Patriots and gives ESPN another news cycle to bring up the whole mess.
