    Always liked the guy and wished he could have spent his entire career as a Patriot.

    From his Twitter account:

    Didn't realize he has been in the NFL for 10 years though. Thought it was probably like 6 or 7.

    Good for him. Get out while you still have your health. Hopefully he's a good analyst.

    always liked him . He left the pats and won a SB a Success after leaving the pats //

    Not only was he a contributer but was a key leader in the Saints SB run. he was highly talked about but payton and brees as a leader.

    good for him.

    Agreed. He's a football player of the type that Coach likes. I'm glad he found success and I am even happier he is leaving without any serious injury.

    Heath was a true throwback to the old Patriot guard and by that I mean he had to leave New England to get his ring. :D

    Heath was fun to watch and that Dolphins game his first year was extremely entertaining.

    I was routing for the Saints just for him too :D OK maybe there was another reason :D

    +1. It was soo easy to root for the Saints.
    a) they played the Colts.
    b) I think that team had 5 ex Pats-Heath, David Thomas, Randall Gay and 1 or 2 more I can't think off.

    Rodney and Heath Evans both joining NFL-N? Excellent, the more Patriot alumni on TV, the better.

    McGinest is on NFLN too, right? Great stuff; love to see Bruschi jump too, but he has a good gig with the ESPN.com/Boston thing.

    Didn't know Rodney went to NFLN! That stinks since he was the only guy on NBC that made any sense..

    Before I knew that he had signed w/ the NFLN, I was surprised to see him as a sideline reporter
    (I forget the game). He wasn't very good, or to be kind wasn't very polished.
    Here's hoping that he improves as he gains more experience & gets more comfortable.

    Technically he couldn't have spent his whole career with the Patriots since he previously played for the Dolphins, but I know what you mean (rest of his career) and I agree wholeheartedly. Glad he got a ring though I wish it was with us.

    If I recall correctly Evans said something earlier this year, when the lockout began I believe, that he had been taking some classes/instruction on broadcasting after having been given that initial opportunity, with an eye on the future for a post-NFL career. I would think/hope that he'll be better prepared this go around. I have heard him on the radio a couple of times over the last year or so and he comes across very well in those interviews.
