Patriots receiver Tiquan Underwood was cut by the team on the day before the “Big Game”. What was the reason?
Wow this is kind of cold but it’s the NFL and it’s all about bizness! Tiquan Underwood is seen above filming teammates Saturday at the damn Super Bowl. The wide receiver loved being a Patriot so much that he put the team in his hair (see below) — well I’m glad our hair grows back fast because Tiquan was released by the team on Saturday, just hours before the Super Bowl.
Bill Belichick feels like another player might help a little more on (Today) Sunday, even if it’s just for one play, then it’s the coach’s job to make that decision.
Underwood didn’t expect this, but he’s no stranger to being released, either. It’s the third time the Patriots have cut him this season.
What might make it even harder on the guy is that he didn’t do anything wrong. He tweeted to his fans after getting cut!
According to the Boston Herald, the move has no disciplinary motive behind it. The Patriots simply wanted another defensive lineman on the roster. Alex Silvestro (seen above) (ironically, like Underwood, a Rutgers product) is the guy who will take his place. He’s been on the Patriots practice squad all season.
