Meriweather has taken a lot of heat this preseason for not living up to his Pro Bowl status in the Patriots secondary.
Our Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran commented on Meriweather's play, and what the Pats might do with him, during training camp:
"With Meriweather entering the final year of his contract, it may make sense for the Patriots to deal him now. He's made two Pro Bowl appearances but is not a Pro Bowl caliber player. He will no doubt attempt to max out in the coming offseason based on his resume and the Patriots -- who have at times relegated him to non-starting roles -- will not be paying max money to keep him. Now may be the time to get something in return for his imminent departure."

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Jay Ajayi tied an NFL record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping the Miami Dolphins rally past the Buffalo Bills 28-25 Sunday.
Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh. He scored on a 4-yard run , and busted a 53-yarder when the Dolphins were pinned at their 3 and trailing in the fourth quarter.
The Dolphins (3-4) used an extra lineman much of the time to clear big holes for Ajayi, who tied the NFL record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.
