    Back to the original subject matter ... Ian Rapoport is suggesting that the crux of the decision was that Bodden had been surpassed by Arrington in terms of performance, and was not embracing the role as the team's third cornerback.

    Here are some of Greg Bedard's thoughts; though he also mentions Bodden not being thrilled with his role, he thinks it was more about performance and the roster spot being better utilized on another player.

    There's much more to the article but those are some of his key points.

    Billy boy must have this thing all figured out. We have no talent in the secondary. Of course this is backed up by poor DL play and poor LB play. THis is going to be a long season that ends up prematurely.

    This coming from a guy who doesn't really watch the games. The D-line actually played well. The LBers, not so much. Spikes out there on passing downs is always a mistake.

    BTW, Chung and McCourty are talented. Both played very well today. The problem is the rest of the secondary. Ihedigbo, Brown, Barrett, and Molden are special teamers who should not be playing full time. Adams looked half decent out there in the 2nd half.

    BTW, why did you post in this thread and not the post game one?

    Molden is a disaster thus far, in the early going this move looks mad sketchy.

    Let's see what the plan is going forward in the secondary.

    So we cut a declining Bodden, who we have already paid for, in order to play Molden and Adams?

    Bodden has now cleared waivers. Nobody claimed him and so the Patriots are on the hook for his salary.

    He is free to sign anywhere he wants, now.

    Where ever he ends up, I expect him to play well. Not a smart move by BB
    IMO.

    If any team wanted him to be a starting corner, they would've claimed him. Now he's stuck in a situation where he doesn't want to be a backup and isn't good enough to be a starter. Soulds like Adalius Thomas all over again.

    He's really stuck. He will get backup money for being a backup PLUS the money from the patriots for being a starter.

    He doesn't want to be a backup though. That's apparently a big reason he wanted out.
