Found September 19, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, center Brian Waters turned down a “significant” pay raise to play for the Patriots this season.

It sounds like to me that Waters’ heart wasn’t into playing football anymore.  The best thing for him to do is to just retire if he can no long give 100 percent to the Patriots.

Welker owns 4 of the top 25 single season reception totals in NFL history, no one else has more than 2 in the top 25 (2 each for C.Carter, J.Rice, J.Smith and M.Harrison). He is coming off a tie for the 4th highest reception total ever when he had 122 receptions in 2011, and you do not go from that point to being behind Julian Edelman on the depth chart. The issue here is a...

2012 NFL Week 3: Survivor Pool Pick

If your reading this then you didn’t listen to me last week and avoided picking the New England Patriots like half of America did. Even though they lost, I will still contend that they were the “right pick.” They were the home team playing a West-Coast team traveling East for a 1:00 start. Plus, they’re the freaking Patriots!!! If you can’t tell I’m still a little bitter...
