Chad Brown just wrapped up a Q-and-A with the media this morning at Gillette. Here’s a partial transcript of his exchange with reporters:
On being comfortable playing in New England…
I think you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I think it’s definitely part of it. To go some other place, some new place, and start all over again, is more than I want to do.
On what he was doing when he got the call…
I was in the middle of a lower body workout.
They called Monday morning?
My agent said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘My lower body workout.’ He said, ‘Well, you might not want to go that hard, because you’ll be practicing on Wednesday.’
Do you feel like a boomerang at this point?
This has been an interesting year and it’s not over yet, so who knows what will come. But I was prepared for this type of experience.
Did you see the game Sunday night?
Some coaches come out right after the game and say, ‘So and so was injured with this ligament and that.’ That doesn’t happen here. I’m just as much in the dark as the rest of the country. But as I said earlier, I had talked to some other teams, so I was expecting some calls. But I got the call I was hoping for. Despite one of my comrades going down (motioning toward Colvin’s locker), you hope not but you hope for it at the same time.
I really couldn’t get a good look at it. I was watching the game — they didn’t show a good view, so I wasn’t really certain. But like I said, I was anticipating a call.
On moving inside…
You know, I have played pretty much all the possible linebacker spots around here in the time I’ve been here, so wherever coach needs me to play, that’s where I’ll play. If he needs me to punt, I’ll punt.
On coming back to New England…
As the season progresses, I think you need to view your options, but I think this was the one place I thought was the best fit.
