In response to nomadfan's comment:
LaQuan Williams is released. Does it point to the front office find out more about his issues after his signing?
He is a minor player, so him being cut is not a big deal, but whether the Pats front office does enough due diligence on players it signs may bear some reflection by the organization.
my point exactly! the special teams play of late says that this guy was signed out of need. his being cut for Vereen, who has bee returning for this game for the past month, is BS...he was cut because of the information released.
Begs the question, did the Pats not know? Or did they know, hoping it would not be made public?
Of course if he was cut because of the civil lawsuit being filed (which I seriously doubt, but we'll never know...) then that would undercut your argument that they must have known more about Hern, doesn't it? If they didn't know about Williams, then that makes it more plausible that they also didn't know about Hern, right? I know you want to have it both ways, but it doesn't work that way.
You would be correct if that was my beef. My beef is, and always has been, especially with Hern, WHY DIDNT THEY KNOW?
I still don't know what the kid did that's so evil in your eyes - he got into a scrape at a strip club - ooh, how awful! I'd ready the guy for lethal injection...and me too while we're at it, truth be told.
I have nothing against strip clubs. Everyone has been in a scrape before. I have a bigger problem with the use of drugs in a public place, and getting into a near riot (30 people were involved, with some hospitalized. sounds like more than a "scrape") after using those drugs in a public place. The guy should have been cut for sheer stupidity
As for Vereen, I don't understand how it matters that they knew he was coming back for a long time? Of course they did, we all did, so what? He's being activated now, not a month ago - they used the open spot until he was ready, now he's ready. So they cut the last guy on the roster which just happens to be Williams.
For 1 month the team knew Vereen would be activated Sunday. The ST's has been performing poorly. They signed this guy Tuesday to help the ST's. This incident is made public, and now the ST's dont need help? I also have some property up north I think you would like.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if he comes back on the PS or the roster at some point.
I hope not. This team needs fewer knuckleheads, not more
