According to NationalFootballPost.com, an executive close to New England has said:
“Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth might not be long for New England. One day before this story came out by my guy Mike Reiss, one NFL executive familiar with the Patriots ways told me he believes one or both of the big name acquisitions will be cut before the season starts. The front office man thinks coach Bill Belichick will use the controversial players to help control and send a message to his locker room.”
Wait, so let me get this straight, an NFL executive familiar with the Patriots, said that? He is either unemployed, or is confusing Bob Kraft with Al Davis. This guy really is saying that New England, took the time to make these trades, gave up three draft picks, and reworked the contracts of both players. Just to cut them?.. That is ridiculous. If that was my source, telling me that, I would delete his number from my phone after I hung up. I would be absolutely shocked if either player was cut, beyond shocked.
Seriously, who ever said that, clearly has no idea what they are talking about.
