    If it's true that he played through an injury, isn't it safe to say that the injury might have slowed him down a little. :confused:

    This is one more reason Tangini won't last long enough to get 'er turned around. They go out of their way to alienate their veterans, who see them using guys hurt to try to make their bones and then tossing them or trying to leverage them.

    It didn't just slow him down when he played, he missed 4 games outright.

    Plus he was the #2 receiver on a bad passing team.

    To be fair, that is precisely what the Pats did last year to Dillon.

    It's part of the business, unfortunately. I hope the Pats were a little more tactful, although to Dillon it was the same thing.

    Dillon asked to be released, and was; at least as I recall. No other teams signed him, which to me would indicate that he was not worth one of 1500+ NFL roster spots.
