We now know why T.J. Moe was waived-injured by the Patriots.
The undrafted rookie suffered a season-ending torn Achilles, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Moe received the most guaranteed money by a Patriots rookie free agent with an $8,000 signing bonus and a guaranteed base salary of $22,000.
If Moe clears waivers, the Patriots will likely put the slot receiver on injured reserve. It’s doubtful that a team would claim Moe, since they would have to stash him on their roster until training camp.
The Patriots stashed Jake Ballard last season after the Giants waived-injured the veteran tight end last June. Teams can only carry 90 players through OTAs, mini-camp and training camp.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Patriots trimmed their roster Friday, releasing wide receiver T.J. Moe and offensive lineman Tyronne Greene.
Moe signed a rookie contract with $30,000 in guaranteed money after going undrafted out of Missouri — the most lucrative deal for a Patriots UFA this offseason.
According to multiple reports, Moe was released under the waived/injured designation, meaning he would be...
AFC East top 25, No. 1: Patriots QB Tom Brady--Boston.com:
Why Tom Brady?
I thought about just putting “duh” here, but that seemed like a copout for obvious reasons.
Instead, chew on this: Brady is the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for 34 or more touchdown passes and 12 or fewer interceptions in four career seasons. That’s twice as many seasons as Broncos quarterback...
Brandon Spikes skipping OTAs in hopes of becoming a three-down linebacker--PFT:
Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has not been a participant at Patriots OTAs this spring, but it isn’t because he’s unhappy with his contract for the 2013 season.
It’s because he wants to set himself up for a bigger contract for the 2014 season. Spikes is in the final year of his contract...
They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
In the New England Patriots' case, yes.. yes they do. As we already know, the team has no time for emotions when it comes to releasing a player who's hurt. We saw how they unceremoniously dumped Kyle Love, a player who looked damn good last season, as soon as they got wind that he'd been diagnosed with Diabetes.
Bill Belichick is a Sith Lord.
When the New England Patriots selected Rob Gronkowski our of the University of Arizona in the second round of the 2010 draft, nobody expected him to have the impact on the Patriots offense that he has had. Through three NFL seasons, Gronkowski has compiled 187 receptions for 2,663 yards an 38 touchdowns. Those are some historic numbers for the 24 year old tight end. However, it seems...
Here are some scenes from Tom Brady’s Best Buddies Challenge.
In 2011, Rob Gronkowski established himself as one of, if not the, most dominant single offensive force in professional football. He was impossible to defend in the passing game, and an impenetrable wall as a blocker in the run game. When all was said in done, there was little questioning that the young Gronkowski had the best year in the history of the tight end position. He had...

BRADY - THE FINAL CHAPTER - PROMO (by CelticsPatriotsman)
Holy hoodie, this video just made the offseason seem impossibly long. Amazing work as always by the editor only known as CelticsPatriotsMan.
Not a bad way to spend a Saturday watching this on a loop.
In Super Bowl XLVI, Jake Ballard of the New York Giants went down with a torn ACL, while his team went on to beat the New England Patriots. He has yet to play a game since. The interesting part of this situation was when the Patriots elected to take Ballard off waivers, knowing that he would likely miss the entire 2012 NFL season. Some speculated that it was a slight jab at the...
He did say he was, but he wasn't serious. It was just a joke. The New England Patriots tight end was just having some fun at the expense of his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
Because, you know, that Gronkowski guy is a big goof ball.
The gag in occurred following the Gronk's recent surgery on his forearm. When the anesthesia wore off and he woke up he saw his agent standing...
Earlier this week, Rob Gronkowski's camp confirmed that the fourth-year New England Patriots tight end will need yet another surgery -- his fifth since November, sixth in 16 weeks and seventh since his senior year of college.And in vintage Gronk fashion, the newest injury and operation is "unrelated" to another. Gronkowski will undergo back surgery for "preventative...
