Brian Waters - G - Free Agent
Patriots released OG Brian Waters.
Officially, the Patriots terminated Waters' contract from the reserve/did not report list. Waters didn't want to play for the Patriots last season, but they refused to play ball after he declined a raise, holding him hostage as his contract tolled to 2013. The Pats could have kept tolling Waters' deal in perpetuity, but decided they got their point across. The long-time Chief wanted to play closer to his Texas home last season. Waters is a six-time Pro Bowler — including in 2011 — but is now 36 and hasn't played since the 2012 Super Bowl. It's unclear if he has any interest in reviving his career.
