In a somewhat surprising move, the New England Patriots have decided to release veteran RB Joseph Addai just before the start of training camp.
Apparently, Addai failed his physical. It looked as if he was going stick around for a while, signing a 1-year deal with the team in May, but reports during the Patriot's June mini camp is that they weren't too impressed with what they saw from him.
The failed physical was pretty much the nail in the coffin. Some call it a cold move to cut a guy just before training camp, but it's meant to help Addai, a veteran who feels he can still contribute, allowing him the opportunity to hook on with another team as camps start around the league.
If he can pass a physical that is.
