Allen: Celtics didn't put a good offer on the table

CSNNE.com Celtics insider A. Sherrod Blakely joins Kevin Walsh of "SportsNet Central" to talk about Ray Allen's comments in a radio interview Saturday in which the former Celtic said Boston didn't put a good offer on the table before Allen left to sign with the Heat last July.

"It was a business decision," Allen said in the radio interview. "The team put me in a situation where we had to move. We had to go. Don't boo me, boo the team. You're not going to put a good offer on the table, we've got to go someplace else."

The Celtics offer, in fact, was twice what the Heat gave Allen.

"Maybe I got a different kind of math," Blakely said. "But when someone offers me twice as much as I'm going to get somewhere else, that's probably a better deal financially. Listen, Ray's biggest issue with the Celtics was that his role was going to be diminished."

Blakely said Allen, a proud future Hall of Famer, had already lost his starting job to Avery Bradley last season and then the acquisition of Jason Terry before the Allen decision was made was going to further reduce Allen's role.

"His role was evolving into something he didn't want any part of," Blakely said. "For him, it wasn't about business, it was personal."

Patriots won’t have to deal with Bills WR Sammy Watkins on Sunday.

FOXBORO - Scratch the estimable Sammy Watkins from the Bills roster for Sunday. 

Buffalo shared via Twitter that their long, tall wideout is out for Sunday with a foot injury. Also down are wideout Greg Salas and left tackle Cyrus Kouandijo.

The Bills' starting left tackle Cordy Glenn has been dealing with an ankle injury that caused him to miss last week's game. 

Robert Woods will be the Bills best outside threat with Watkins taking Sunday off. The Bills' talented corner Ronald Darby is also trying to get back this week from a hamstring injury that caused him to miss last week's game with Arizona.
