Andre Gurode to visit New England

One of the NFL’s best available free agent offensive linemen could be heading to New England.

Free agent Andre Gurode, who can play either guard or center, has scheduled a visit with the Patriots, Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports.

Gurode was released by the Cowboys this week and has reportedly drawn interest from a few teams, including the Lions. Some teams may have interest but want to hold off until after Week 1 to sign him, because if he’s on a Week 1 roster his salary will be guaranteed.

If Gurode signs in New England, Albert Haynesworth will get a chance to step on his head every day at practice.

    he better bring his helmet

    If Philly has any cap room left I don’t see why they’re not all over him. Strong skill position guys obviously but that line could definitely use some help.

    Ouch, keep it clean PFT.

  10. catdelmonte says: Sep 2, 2011 10:57 PM

    then again that didn’t save him last time

  11. bossisforboston says: Sep 2, 2011 11:01 PM

    “he was released after failing to reach an agreement on a restructured contract”

    I don’t expect him to reach an agreement in New England either.

    I must admit I got a chuckle out of the “step on his head every day in practice” line, but I hope Gurode puts his foot up Haynesworth’s ass! Gourode is a quiet working man and Albert is a whiney primma-donna who spiked Gurode out of fustration when he was getting his fat ass blocked all day.

  13. dccowboy says: Sep 2, 2011 11:02 PM

    He can’t play Guard. He’s incredibly slow. He couldn’t play guard 4 years ago when Parcells tried to get him to play Guard.

    Not a chance this happens.
    If he was signed, Gurode would continue to blow Haynesworth’s ass up. The only difference is now it would be in practice.
    Haynesworth is a coward, a liar and a thief
    He’s stolen his money… wait for the flop NE.

    Man…I was thinking the same thing as soon as I saw Patriots. Heheheheheheheheheeee!

    The Patriots realize what the rest of us do – their 14-2 record last year was a total fraud. They’ve been bringing in a huge number of free agents, desperately trying to catch up to the Jets. Obviously, they don’t have any faith in the guys they’ve been drafting.

    I think Albert has matured and is well beyond the vicious and violent stuff like the head stomping thing he did to Andre Gurode. I think Albert mellowed a bit these days. The waitress situation is proof positive.

  20. scudbot says: Sep 2, 2011 11:51 PM

    Well, okay. But where is Tebow on the Broncos depth chart as of this hour? More importantly, what is Rex Ryan’s mouth predicted to say anytime soon?

  21. scudbot says: Sep 2, 2011 11:56 PM

    Hasn’t Ndamukong Suh issued a statement today that he’ll beat QBs senseless after plays are over? Is he taking the holiday weekend off or what?

    This is too funny!!! ROFL:D

  23. ztvmid says: Sep 3, 2011 12:12 AM

    you know, i made jokes about andre and haynesworth, but i never thought it could actually potentially materialize…

  24. tlaw21 says: Sep 3, 2011 12:27 AM

    That should be reversed Gurode should get a chance to stomp on that fat chumps head every day at practice……I hate the Cowboys but that was absolutely ridiculous stomping on a guy’s head just because he was getting schooled during the game. BTW I meant the top figuratively I wouldn’t wish that upon anybody in the NFL even that fat chump himself. It’s Bush League big time!!!!!

  25. eaglesblow says: Sep 3, 2011 12:34 AM

    dre will get a chance to get some revenge too. i know i would, fat albert tried to end his career that day. maybe his life.

    Ouch, low blow to Al.

    flagstaff – They’ve done this every year for awhile now. They bring in veterans, either FA or trade, to take a spin, and the majority of them don’t sign, or play a major role.

    This year’s a bit different. The defensive restructuring they are going through there (going to show more 4-3 looks) necessitated them looking at FA defensive line talent a bit more. It leaves a draft pick guy they’ve developed, like Jermaine Cunningham, a bit out in the cold, since he wasn’t a great fit as a base 4-3 end.

    That said, one other factor to keep in mind is that, from the start of the BB run in New England, they’ve preferred veteran defensive front 7 talent. Remember that first Super Bowl team? That’s led to some issues with their pass rush, as they simply haven’t found the young talent to step up.

    haha i was down at gillette stadium and the line to the GM’s office was amazing, it was like a quarter mile long, all full of players that were aged, regressing on the talent button, and looking for a team. I think i even saw belichick passing out popcorn as guys waited to be seen.. lol

    Hey flagstaffphotos, who’s your team? The jets? I’m just curious, cuz you post on EVERY Patriots story. I’ll bet your actually a closeted Patriots fan. You’re like the nerdy high school kid who wants to hang with the cool kids, but you’re too insecure and think they’ll never accept you, so you sniff around their houses and hangouts so you can feel like you’re a part of it. I don’t blame you, being a Pats fan IS cool, and fun. I just kinda feel sorry for you that your team apparently sucks so bad that your embarrassed to even say who it is. Have sympathy for him Patriot Nation, he’s just like all the other Patriots haters — JEALOUS!

    Why do people post paragraphs of crap on here. Do they really think it gets read?
    It’s no different than email or blogs… keep it short, it will be read.

    As long as it’s not the Eagles…

  34. opie333 says: Sep 3, 2011 8:32 AM

    I can’t believe this guy has not signed somewhere yet?? pro bowl center???

    How is winning 14 games fraudulent? Didn’t the Jets just release their #1 pick Gholston and bring in FAs like Holmes and LT and Burress? I wish you were smart enough to realize how stupid your statement is.

  36. jimyritz says: Sep 3, 2011 8:49 AM

    Nice comment flagstaff…

    Does ever hurt to bring in a guy to take a look?

    Dan Connolly is hurt so they might need some help at guard…Didn’t the Jets do the same with Damian Woody?

    Lot’s of visits this weekend…

    Yeah, that 14-2 record was a fraud, sure. So is a team that claims every year they’re going to win a Super Bowl, yet can’t even win their division against these “frauds”.

    I keep thinking this guy can’t say anything dumber, and he keeps proving me wrong.
