Well, they won’t always have Paris anymore.
The New England Patriots have informed linebacker Paris Lenon of his release, per Mike Reiss of The Boston Globe. Lenon, the second-leading tackler for the Lions in 2007 and 2008, came tantalizingly close to tasting a few victories this year. But it was not to be.
The retirement of Tedy Bruschi figured to help Lenon make the team but New England’s heightened emphasis on the 4-3 during this training camp probably led them to trim some numbers at the linebacker spot.
