After a year of nothing while a member of the New York Jets, Tebow’s prospects in the NFL seemed almost non-existent. But never underestimate the willingness of an NFL team to take a shot on someone, and never underestimate the desire of the Patriots to sign players recently released by the Jets. The Patriots have been known over the years under coach Bill Belichick to be a team that has had great success with reclamation projects and getting more out of players than they actually had to give.

Aaron Hernandez: answering the deep, thought-provoking questions

In the wake of the Aaron Hernandez murder case, I have a lot of questions. That need answers. Such as 1.) Why have the New England Patriots continued to sign/draft malcontents and players with character issues? 2.) Why didn’t they do a better job vetting Aaron Hernandez?

Fantasy Football 2013: Stevan Ridley's Numbers Will Soar

Stevan Ridley had good fantasy numbers in 2012. He wracked-up 1,263 yards rushing on his way to 12 touchdowns. His contribution in the passing game was minimal, but that isn't necessarily a knock on his ability or his future potential in this offense.While the Patriots may be considered a pass-first team, Ridley is not exactly an afterthought, despite having a little trouble...

Pouncey twins rock “Free Hernandez” hats

This could be one of the dumbest things ever done by high profile athletes.  Really, this makes Ochocinco taping his lawyer on the rear after a verdict seem smart.  Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder and all signs point towards him being guilty.  But that did not stop the Pouncey twins from wearing “Free Hernandez” hats at a party.
