COMMENTARY | The Green Bay Packers recently released inside linebacker Desmond Bishop, creating a buzz about which team could be next in line for the six-year veteran's services. According to NFL.com that list is already down to three after a week's worth of visits.
During the 2012 season, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 401 of 637 pass attempts for 4,827 yards with 34 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Seven players on the 2012 Patriots were targeted at least 20 times by Brady, but through free agent moves, offseason surgeries and an ongoing homicide investigation, six of those players may not be available to Brady at the start of the 2013 season. Two players are definitely gone. The Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker, the team's all-time leader in receptions, parted ways rather acrimoniously, with the five-time Pro Bowler spurning the team's latest offer to sign a two-year, $12 million contract with the Denver Broncos. Running back Danny Woodhead, a versatile weapon who caught 40 passes in 2012, also headed to the AFC West, signing a two-year, $3.5 million contract with the San Diego Chargers. New England decided to not pick up an option bonus on Brandon Lloyd, who was second on the 2012 Patriots with 130 targets, 74 receptions and 911 receiving yards. Lloyd remains available, but his signing with the Patriots was already somewhat controversial — due to his agent Tom Condon's frosty relationship with New England's front office — and it would be a minor surprise if he's brought back. The Patriots also have not re-signed wide receiver Deion Branch, who had 16 receptions in 10 games with the team. Branch, who turns 34 on July 18, remains a free agent, but even if the Patriots re-signed him this summer, he'd probably be released at the end of camp to avoiding having his base salary fully guaranteed. Then, of course, there are the tight ends. Rob Gronkowski missed five of the last six regular season games with a fractured forearm, but still managed to catch 55 passes for 790 yards with a team-high 11 touchdown receptions. Gronkowski has undergone three surgeries on his forearm since January and underwent successful back surgery last week in Los Angeles. Gronkowski's timetable for recovery is around 12 weeks, which jeopardizes his availability for the start of the regular season. Aaron Hernandez fought through a high ankle sprain to produce 51 receptions for 483 yards and five touchdowns last season, but has emerged as a central figure in a murder investigation and might not be available to the Patriots this season, or ever again. With each of those targets possibly unavailable to Brady, who will the Patriots be looking to for production in the passing game in 2013?
Coach says he was too headstrong in situation.
Former NFL coach Bill Parcells recently told USA Today that he regrets the way his relationship ended with the New England Patriots as he prepares for his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction.
