Kyle Love takes a shot at former team New England


DL Kyle Love told Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union that he wasn’t surprised he was released by New England: “That’s how they run their business up there; veteran guys who have been there for years and put in a lot of work get treated like rookies.”

He went on to speak about his weight loss, and having diabetes: “It’s not like I lost 30 pounds, I was never out of shape — I participated every day so I don’t know where that came from.”

For New England it made sense on more than one level why they released Kyle Love, he would be depth on their team more then anything else this season. Yes his diabetes played a part in it but I think bringing in Kelly and Armstead also played a part in it. The Patriots brought in Tommy Kelly and Armond Armstead who will most likely start and play most of the snaps, leaving Kyle Love and Brandon Deaderick as depth if they remained on the team. It made sense for New England to release them both, if we keep things in perspective, we released Kyle Love, not Vince Wilfork. The only way this is a bad move is if Kelly and Armstead play horrible this season, which I doubt will happen for either one. Love should like this move, granted it is to a bad team, but he has a shot to start for Jacksonville.

This season has reminded everybody that everybody is replaceable on the Patriots roster except Tom Brady. Brady allows the Patriots to release countless of popular players and talented players, because is he so talented. New England could not make these moves if they had an average or bad QB.  Patriots knows as long as Brady is their QB they will always be a good team in the playoffs no matter what moves they make.
