Former Packers safety Aaron Rouse running for office in Virigina
Former Packers safety Aaron Rouse wanted to make a change in his hometown, and he’s doing something about it.
Via WAVY 10, Rouse announced that he was running for city council in his native Virginia Beach.
Can we please stop saying that the Patriots value special teams more than the rest of the league. First Malcolm Butler played on special teams in the biggest game of the year, for the first time all year. No recent experience, no expertise.
Why? Also Patriots special teams were completely outplayed in the Super Bowl. From field position to the kicking game, it was a terrible performance. I really think the Patriots would be better off building roster depth instead of keeping multiple designated ST players – Slater, Ebner, King, Bolden, stop the madness.
Linebacker Ufomba Kamalu is the only other exclusive rights free agent on the Texans roster this offseason. Two of their other safeties Marcus Gilchrist and Eddie Pleasant are set for unrestricted free agency.
At some point in the near future, I expect linebackers coach Brian Flores will be the Patriots defensive coordinator. It’s been reported this offseason that Flores, who’s called the defenses at times in the preseason, will handle those duties this coming fall with Matt Patricia having moved on to the Lions. He reportedly will not get the coordinator title, though. It’s a transition process that Belichick has used in the past for the jobs with guys like Patricia and on the offensive side with Bill O’Brien. But sooner or later Flores seems destined for the job and the title.
What do you think of Mason Rudolph from Oklahoma State and do you think the Patriots snag him with the 49ers pick?
