After largely failing to live up to his expectations in New England as a 2004 1st round pick, it seemed that Watson had finally emerged as an above average starting tight end.

This makes some sense as Watson is owed 2.88 million this season and they have a young tight end on the roster behind him waiting for a chance, 2011 4th round pick Jordan Cameron, who is having a strong offseason. Watson didn’t help his case by missing a big chunk of Training Camp with an unspecified injury.

For idiot NFL fans, this is a test
