The Patriots will keep on rolling as he departs, says Tom E. Curran
-- Right here at Foxboro are known for being laid backs usually the case that wasn't the case today shocking news that cornerback Leigh Bodden has been released -- -- -- CSN and Tom why did this happen. Well -- buttons play has trailed off since 2009 when he was really the best secondary player in the Patriots re signed him to a fat contract after that season. Five years and 25 million so he was carrying a big tech really -- he wasn't playing to that level. With the emergence -- record and really the potential of Ras I Dowling and the continued good play Kyle Arrington. It almost seems as if the fact that. We -- this 2010 with a knee injury. Gave the guys a chance to step forward so I think that that's were looking at. Money seeding issue and Patriots probably also want to activate someone on the physically unable to perform with stayed clear spot. So we get the why answered that looking at going forward here looking at the roster how much does this impact the team well that's the. Think as we haven't seen very many solid plays slightly but this year not a bad player certainly I didn't say okay I think that it will be the data we blood gets released. This was out of the blue. But I think overall his impact hasn't been that great on the field I think it is a steady guy good leader. But I'm not sure how radically that defense is gonna change to be impacted by his absence. Here we are Friday Bill Belichick is known for making -- surprising is were you surprised you know what I was stunned and then you see it happen. Hey I'm up and is this another media that hits that you just don't expect and I think that. That would Bill Belichick -- out. Is a realization that -- -- his team can withstand the seismic. Changes and some teams do distractions it -- friend of mine that's my boy -- -- -- -- understand. The Patriots. They understand it he takes care of the personnel they take care of us playing. And that's one of the reasons why would they have a move to me feels -- way way I hope these guys are depressed because Lee gets released he just goes and does.
