To say that the Patriots have had their share of public relations issues in the last year would be an understatement. Aaron Hernandez's arrest and incarceration would seem to be enough of a deterrent to stay away from bringing aboard anyone with any kind of rap sheet, right?
The Patriots reportedly met with Kenny Britt on Monday, a big-bodied receiver with a promising skill set who happens to have had nine -- yep, nine -- run-ins with the law in his five-year NFL career.
Why are the Patriots doing it? He'd be a great value if he can be the No. 1 receiver he was in Tennessee in 2009 and 2010. Gary Tanguay and Kirk Minihane debated the topic on Early Edition.
"I don't think the Patriots need to go out and get an outlaw like Kenny Britt," Tanguay said. "The guy has had a couple of flashes, and he's had [nine] run-ins with the law."
A couple of those "run-ins" were resisting arrest and being arrested after a car chase.
"He's not worth the headache, that's my point," Tanguay said.
Minihane isn't too worried about it.
"I'll take a flyer on him, why not?" Minihane said.
