Tiquan Underwood Cut
February 5, 2012 by staff
Tiquan Underwood Cut, The Patriots [team stats] offered a harsh reminder last night that the NFL is still a business. Often, a cold business.
The night before Super Bowl XLVI, the team released receiver Tiquan Underwood and promoted defensive end Alex Silvestro from the practice squad. Underwood would not have figured prominently into the game plan, and the team likely plans to use undrafted rookie Silvestro as part of a defensive line rotation.
In addition, this makes it all but certain that receiver Chad Ochocinco will be active for tonight’s game.
A source said there was no disciplinary measure, and the team still wants Underwood back for next season. All of which makes the move even more harsh. He went through every bit of preparation for the game, was in the team picture, and described it as “a dream.”
Last night on Twitter, the player who became a fan favorite for his High Top Fade haircut and affable personality, sounded professional.
“This Is Nothing But MOTIVATION,” Underwood tweeted. “I Been Thru A LOT…But There Are people In This World with More Serious Problems So I can’t Hang The Head….Thank You Lord #Blessed.”
