    I suppose that's a plea of no contest. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Slater may make the team, he is on the bubble but I doubt he takes Andrews spot. Andrews was a key on special teams coverage, a backup at FS and even took a few snaps at CB, pretty versatile and a good player to have on the roster (and a great guy to party with!).

    HALF pound of marijuana?? Good lord, was he planning to smoke that all by himself? Maybe he has some friends who smoke too... but they better not be on the Pats! Sheesh, you're a pro now get a grip man!

    Looks like Walsh wasn't the only guy to get hooked up with a top flight attorney.

    Likely this indicates the Pats both value Andrews and think he can learn from his mistakes. Otherwise he'd have been long gone by now.

    Sounds like you just described Matt Slater.

    His case was continued without a finding (cwof). He admitted that if he took his case to trial that there are enough facts for a jury or a judge to find him guilty. However, he did not plead guilty. If he completes the terms of his probation successfully, then his case will be dismissed at the end of probation. If he violates the terms of his probation, then he potentially faces up to 30 months in the Middlesex County House of Correction and/or a fine. For this particular offense (possession of marijuana with intent to distribute), a cwof is pretty standard for someone without a record...

    FWIW, there's no plead of "no contest" in Massachusetts...

    I guess the difference is that Andrews has done it at a pro-level while Slater could not play a regular position even in college. In the end who cares, they are both only minor pieces in the puzzle.

    Interesting that there had been threads on this, this past week... ALl of it makes sense..he is lucky and I agree, he'll be fighting with Slater and others for ST duty. I do think it's not a minor part though as ST is a third of the game and KO/punt returns, D on those is very critical. he also is more of a CB..moved to S in college the last year. Always liked him, still do..and I think if the Pats did not, he would have been long gone.

    This sounds ljust like Matt Slater, doesn't it? If you add WR to the mix and delete the partying with marijuana.

    Andrews' speech to teen athletes regarding the dangers of drugs reportedly will focus on the fact that if you get caught, you will probably have to pay $1000 and be forced to speak to teen athletes about the dangers of drugs.

    Who?? Is that in reference to Andrews or Slater?? If it's Andrews, my guess is you missed a lot the last two years...if it's Slater, then maybe it's only been a few weeks.
