After six seasons with the Patriots, tight end Benjamin Watson is finally a free agent. But in uncertain economic times, after a six-year, $7.5-million deal, he’s open to everyone.
But will he return to the Patriots?
Just talked to someone with knowledge of his situation down here in Mobile and it doesn’t look promising. In fact, I’m told there’s “not a lot of interest on either side.”
Watson may want to head to a place that’ll give him more than 29 catches for 404 yards with five TDs. And apparently, Watson was more the choice of Scott Pioli than Bill Belichick on draft day, anyway.This could be a split that’s best for both sides.
