The Patriots brought in seemingly a million wide receivers this offseason, one which was Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez is a former 1st round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2007 NFL Draft, but thanks to injuries, he’s played just 2 games over the last 3 seasons, catching 5 passes. The Patriots didn’t have a ton of room at wide receiver and likely just brought Anthony Gonzalez in as a boom or bust free agent signing to see if he had anything left as a player after all of his injuries. It appears he doesn’t as the Patriots have already cut him. According to the Boston Globe, they gave up on him because he “doesn’t have the legs anymore.” His past leg injuries have turned him from a player who once went in the 1st round to a player not even worth bringing in Training Camp. At just 27 years of age, it’s fair to wonder if anyone will ever give him another chance.

Anthony Gonzalez Released By Patriots

Wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez has been released by the Patriots. Fantasy Spin: Gonzalez has appeared in a total of 11 games over the last three seasons due to terrible durability, and the former first-round draft pick (2007) of Indianapolis had poor odds of making New Englands final roster this fall. He is highly unlikely to be relevant in fantasy football with another team in 2012.

Thoughts About Season Tickets

A couple of things have come up recently about season tickets that I wanted to respond to. First, much has been made about whether there's much to make of the recent news that the Colts have yet to sell out their season tickets for 2012. On one extreme are those citing the hiring of Get Real Sports Sales and Jim Irsay's defensive tweets as signs of how dire the situation...

The great blackout myth

With the news that roughly 3,000 season tickets remain for the upcoming 2012 Indianapolis Colts campaign many in the national media have stated that blackouts are a risk. This is a terrible exaggeration as the risk of a blackout is pretty limited. To avoid a blackout not all 63,000 seats in Lucas Oil Stadium must be filled. The NFL only requires all non-club, non-suite and non-obstructed...

The Colts are in the Post-Peyton Manning era, and they are already feeling the effects of it; season ticket sales have dropped and they were forced to find ways to get rid of 3000 tickets.
