Patriots Re-Sign Benjamin Watson

Oct 14, 2019 3:39 PM

The New England Patriots are expected to re-sign Benjamin Watson.

Watson was released on Oct. 7 by the Patriots when they didn't have a roster spot following his four-game PED suspension. 

Watson spent training camp with the Patriots and has experience in their system. 

"Ben's a great player. He's been a great player for this team, for other teams. He's had an incredible career," Brady said last week. "He was right next to me [in the locker room], and for as great as a player he was, he was 10 times a better person, just the highest integrity. I can't say enough good things about Ben, what he's meant to me, my family, our team."

Tom Brady Won't Try To Convince Rob Gronkowski To End Retirement

Oct 14, 2019 11:56 AM

Tom Brady won't try to convince Rob Gronkowski to return to the New England Patriots. Gronkowski retired following the Super Bowl in 2019.

“Look, I love that guy. I am so happy that he’s enjoying his time. I am happy that he’s enjoying his life." Brady said. "He seems to really be doing a lot of great things. He knows how I feel about him. I want what is best for him. He’s the only person that can make those decisions. I don’t lobby for those things.

"I have a great relationship with him. He has given actually a hell of a lot to our team already over the course of a long period of time, and I think people should be very appreciative for what he’s brought to the team and what he’s brought to the region. I think he’s a very special guy. He’s just in a different phase of his life.”

Kraft Likely Overruled Brady, Belichick On Cutting Antonio Brown

Sep 26, 2019 3:50 PM

Tom Brady was reportedly upset with the New England Patriots' decision to cut Antonio Brown.

Brady publicly made the following comments to Jim Gray on Westwood One on Monday.

“I don’t make any personnel decisions," said Brady. "I don’t decide to sign players. I don’t decide to trade then. I don’t decide to release them. I don’t decide to draft them. I don’t get asked, I show up and do my job. I’m an employee like everyone else. I’m going to show this week and do the best I can do as quarterback. … Maybe one day I will be an owner and I can make all the decisions that I want.”

The Patriots' decision to cut Brown was made by Robert Kraft, a rare if not unprecedented instance in which he intervened on the football side. Bill Belichick understood the decision and accepted it, but Brown would likely still be with the Patriots if Kraft hadn't insisted upon it.
