New England Patriots Cut Player After He’s Diagnosed With Diabetes

The New England Patriots haven’t exactly displayed a high level of integrity over the past decade. I mean, who could forgot that whole spy gate scandal when the Pats recorded their opponent St. Louis Rams’ practice before the Super Bowl. Dirty.

Plus, with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady at the reigns, it’s easy to hate this franchise. And today they gave us yet another reason to add fuel to the fire. In an offseason full of uncertainty, after releasing Wes Welker and having an injured Rob Gronkowski, the Pats pulled another questionable move when they released fourth-year nose tackle Kyle Love.

The reason for this move? He was diagnosed with diabetes. While this is surely just a business move, it’s not a very good look to drop a guy who is going through some personal issues. Love’s agent, Richard Kopelman, spoke out on his behalf about this move.

“Having consulted with leading authorities on the effects of Type-2 diabetes, we have every reason to believe that Kyle will, in the immediate future, be at 100 percent, and will be prepared to participate in training camp in a couple of months.”

“As Kyle said, ‘there is no way something like this is going to stand between me and a long and successful NFL career.”

This diagnosis is no doubt a tough one for Kyle as being dropped from the team must be the icing on the cake. Hopefully we can see him overcome this adversity and find himself back on an NFL field in the near future. Preferably with the Jets, where he can prove himself with a division rival.

But since it’s the Jets, he would probably end up just embarrassing himself. Damn shame.

Why Trick Plays Could Make A Comeback In The NFL

The St. Louis Rams came into week seven with nothing to lose. Having lost four of their first five games of the season, they were already in last place in the NFC West. And they were facing a difficult matchup against their division rivals, defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. As such, it makes sense […]
