http://patriots.bostonherald.com/patriots/view.bg?articleid=188616 The question may no longer be if Troy Brown will play next season, but where he will play. A source familiar with Brownâs situation said last night that the veteran receiver âdefinitelyâ wants to return for a 15th NFL season. âOne hundred percent,â said the source. Whether Brown gets an offer, and from which team, is the question. Another source close to Brown said he would be surprised if Brown were to sign anywhere other than New England. So for the sake of carrying Troy, is it worth: Making a roster slot available for a sixth WR to start the season? IRing somebody when Jackson's PUP time is up, whether they need it or not? Because that's what's entailed in signing him unless somebody doesn't make it out of training camp. I'm not sure, so I'd be inclined to sign him. It would hurt to cut him in August, if that turns out to be needful, but how much worse would that be than not having him through the offseason?
