Brandon Meriweather, for whatever reason, was released today from NE. In his four years in the NFL, Brandon has been a two-time Pro-Bowler; he's one badass MoFo Safety, extremely athletic, a valiant and loyal soldier and a former 1st round draft pick. He is a hard case that even Belichick can't break.
Since we lost Hiram Eugene, we have seen the play of Giordano and Boyd flailing away with disastrous results leaving most with a sense of dread. N.E is a solid trading partner with Oakland and a move for Meriweather makes perfect sense.
Make no mistake, this guy is a hitter, he'll play to the whistle and walk with swagger and attitude. Look out!
