Christopher Price of WEEI.com pointed out that on Friday former Patriots wide receiver Joey Galloway appeared on the Scott Van Pelt show and discussed the issues surrounding his eventual departure from New England.
According to Galloway he simply said that despite all the talk that he and quarterback Tom Brady “couldn’t get on the same page”, that actually wasn’t the case. In the end the veteran receiver said that he and the Patriots just weren’t “a good fit”.
“It just wasn’t a good fit,” Galloway said. “I had a different idea of what I was going there to do. I thought that I was going there to be the third receiver. I thought I was going there to help them stretch the field to go vertical, and once I got there, that just wasn’t the case. The third receiver in New England doesn’t a large role in much of the offense, and that’s in practice, that’s on game day.”
Galloway signed a one-year deal with the team back on March 14, 2009 and was inactive during weeks 4, 5, and 6 before eventually being released on October 20th and finished with just seven catches with the Patriots.
