Kyle Love's three-year run with the Patriots ended last week, when he was released after a blood test revealed he had Type 2 diabetes.

Despite quickly finding a new home with the Jaguars, the veteran defensive tackle decided to vent his feelings about the Patriot Way.

“That’s how they run their business up there; veteran guys who have been there for years and put in a lot of work get treated like rookies,” Love said, via the Florida Times-Union.

Love, whose parents are both afflicted with diabetes, isn't surprised he ended up with the ailment. He is surprised, however, over rumors that he was cut due to his physical stature.

“It’s not like I lost 30 pounds,” he said. “I was never out of shape — I participated every day so I don’t know where that came from."

The 6-foot-1, 315 pound Love is a prototypical two-down lineman, capable of holding the point of attack. Although he's not guaranteed a roster spot in Jacksonville, head coach Gus Bradley likes what he sees from the 26-year-old.

"He has some very good tape," Bradley said. "He does a nice job of what we're going to ask him to do and we'll try him at different spots."

Unfortunately for Love, the Pats aren't on the Jags' docket this season. But he surely can spin the perceived slight into motivation for his future endeavors.
