So It Turns Out That Anthony Gonzalez Was Even More Washed Up Than We Thought
Today, the news broke that the Pats had released him well before training camp and preseason had even started.
It's easy to sit here and make fun of the guy for being injury prone but this is just sad. I'm not sure how bad he has to be to get dumped this quickly but it might be time for him to think about retiring and moving on with the next phase of his life. Playing pro football doesn't seem to be his thing anymore.
I never thought he'd have much of an impact on the team nor necessarily find himself on the 53-man roster in September but this is pretty pathetic. With slot receivers Wes Welker, Julian Edelman and rookie Jeremy Ebert all signed for next season, apparently there was no room for Gonzalez's lifeless body.
