Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who has spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Patriots, has reportedly asked to be released, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport reports that the Patriots asked Wilfork once to restructure his contract, but Wilfork refused and the two sides haven’t talked contract since.
The Patriots were very quiet during the first few hours of free agency, making headlines more for losing cornerback Aqib Talib to Denver than for any moves they made themselves. On Wednesday they made their first official transaction, re-signing free agent tight end Michael Hoomanawanui. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but an […]
In a nice shocker overnight, former Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib signed with the Denver Broncos to a 6-year, $57 million contract. The deal leaves the Patriots with Logan Ryan or the currently imprisoned Alfonzo Dennard at the top corner spot.
For those Patriots fans who subscribe to the “We need more weapons on offense” theory, now is the time you should stop reading. It appears as if quarterback Tom Brady is at risk of losing his top pass target for the second year in a row. One year after Wes Welker defected to the Denver […]
Even though there are 12 Patriots scheduled to be unrestricted free agents, only two were ever really serious considerations for the franchise tag. Julian Edelman and Aqib Talib were all the buzz after New England’s season ended in January. Both were key to the Patriots’ success, yet both were still deemed unworthy of the tag.
Bill Belichick obviously hates Wes Welker. More like, Dan Shaughnessy obviously will write anything that is contrarian and will get him readers. Shaughnessy has flipped sides on this year’s Patriots team enough times that it’s hard to count. One minute he’s lauding them for miraculous comebacks and the next he’s lambasting them for poor personnel […]
For the second consecutive season the Patriots lost in the AFC Championship game. A team that was once so successful in the postseason, has now suffered three consecutive disappointing losses in a row. The one major thing in common in all three of those games is the poor play of the offense. The stat line […]
The New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos are set to square off this Sunday night in Denver for the AFC Championship. This will mark the 15th time that Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have gone head to head. To date, Brady has gotten the better of Manning, winning 10 out of the 14 games […]
This Sunday the Patriots are going to play in the AFC Championship for the third straight year, and the eighth time since 2001. In a league that preaches parity, the Patriots are the only team for the past 13 years that are a constant threat to have a shot at the Super Bowl. It truly […]
On Saturday, Charles Barkley attended the New England Patriots’ 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts as a guest of owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick. Afterwards, he had some choice words for Patriots fans, which can be seen below. (Warning: Barkleys drops some strong language in the video.) So Mr. Barkley, you think we take […]
Former Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch, who has not played this season, is listed as inactive for Saturday night’s game. Branch signed earlier this week with the Colts, but now that he is not playing (Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is also inactive for Indianapolis), what was the point of signing with the enemy?
Okay, so Adam LaRoche appeared all of six games with the Boston Red Sox during the 2009 season, one of three teams he played for that year. The Red Sox acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates before the trade deadline, only to flip him to the Atlanta Braves nine days later. He accrued five hits […]
In a season where Tom Brady has had to overcome countless offensive obstacles to lead his team to a 12-4 record and a fifth consecutive AFC East crown, he is somehow considered the worst quarterback remaining in the playoffs. Thanks to this article posted by The Sporting News, Tom Brady has the perfect bulletin board […]
Most of us have seen this video of Hulk Hogan stating that he is in the New England Patriots’ corner of the ring as we begin the playoffs against the Colts on Saturday. Thanks for the endorsement, Mr. Hogan. After all your time in Florida I thought you would be a Buccaneers fan. I do […]
After everything that has happened to the Patriots this season, it is absolutely incredible they are the number two seed in the AFC. The offseason was highlighted by Tom Brady’s favorite receivers from the year before, but in the worst possible scenarios. Wes Welker went to Denver to catch pass from Brady’s rival Peyton Manning.
