The Patriots brought in seemingly a million wide receivers this offseason, one which was Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez is a former 1st round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2007 NFL Draft, but thanks to injuries, he’s played just 2 games over the last 3 seasons, catching 5 passes. The Patriots didn’t have a ton of room at wide receiver and likely just brought Anthony Gonzalez in as a boom or bust free agent signing to see if he had anything left as a player after all of his injuries.

It appears he doesn’t as the Patriots have already cut him. According to the Boston Globe, they gave up on him because he “doesn’t have the legs anymore.” His past leg injuries have turned him from a player who once went in the 1st round to a player not even worth bringing in Training Camp. At just 27 years of age, it’s fair to wonder if anyone will ever give him another chance.
