Is he still under contract with the Pats? If yes, the rights on him belong to the Pats.What are the rules on a player coming out of retirement super early after announcing it? I mean if he comes back to the Pats it should be OK right? But if another team wants him to play he has to get released by the Pats right?
Personally I don't thinking waiting until the *** end orlf the year to play would benefit him too much. His body needs more time to heal than just half a season. Next year? Maybe. But this guy has also had a big party bone during his time with the Pats and I vaguely remember him getting into trouble because of it. I think he will have too much fun not playing football and won't look back.
