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.”

Mike Tomlin To Washington Considered 'Far-Fetched'

Oct 13, 2019 11:57 AM

Mike Tomlin has been linked to the Washington head coaching job despite having two seasons remaining on his contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Washington would have to blow Pittsburgh away with an offer for Tomlin while also giving hi a substantial contract.

"Neither of which is going to happen," one source close to the situation told ESPN.

"I don't see Mike going to Washington," the source continued. "That is so far-fetched. It's so far out there. It would have to be a deal that the league never has seen before and would change the way business is done in football, and I don't see that happening."
