Pats give the boot to Brandon Meriweather

b-meriweather4 AP

Two straight Pro Bowls and 64 appearances in 64 career games ultimately wasn’t enough to save safety Brandon Meriweather.  The Patriots have parted ways with the first-round pick from the 2007 draft, according to a league source.

Meriweather’s status had been the subject of rumor and speculation.  He recently downplayed to our good buddy Tom Curran of CSNNE.com the fact that coach Bill Belichick had Meriweather playing during garbage time of the preseason finale.

Meriweather, notorious during his time in college for a stomping incident during an on-field brouhaha, was implicated in an offseason shooting.  He eventually was cleared by authorities.  Last October, he was fined $50,000 for launching head first into Ravens tight end Todd Heap.  The fine later was reduced to $40,000.

A four-year veteran, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

    Just another in a loooooooooong line of bad players in the Pats secondary.

  2. jebdamone says: Sep 3, 2011 3:15 PM

    hmmm…could be an interesting pickup for a lot of team. no doubt hes a ‘play when i wanna play’ kinda guy though.

    Cleveland needs safety help

  5. bradybbgoat says: Sep 3, 2011 3:17 PM

    In BB we trust!

    …gulp

  6. S says: Sep 3, 2011 3:17 PM

    Wow.

    They are so thin at safety…plus with Sanders already cut….

  7. ar1888 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:17 PM

    Come to the Colts Mr. Meriweather.

  8. canjura says: Sep 3, 2011 3:18 PM

    Rams are a safety needy team that needs to take a look at Meriweather imo. If he can’t be a starter, I’m sure he’d be a solid 3rd safety/special teamer.

  9. dynastydriven says: Sep 3, 2011 3:18 PM

    The guy sucks and this is coming from a Patriots fan. He doesn’t listen to the coaches. Takes horrible angles, doesn’t wrap up guys well and would rather make a “huge hit” then get to the receiver before he catches the ball.

    Made Pro-Bowls on name recognition for his stupid hits only.

    VIP not on swole.

  10. serifyn says: Sep 3, 2011 3:18 PM

    Sanders and now Meriweather? you think the Patriots will be drafting a Safety next year?

  11. billinva says: Sep 3, 2011 3:19 PM

    No one wanted to trade for him?

  12. Rhode Island Patriots Fan says: Sep 3, 2011 3:20 PM

    I applaud the move by New England to jettison Meriweather. Despite some flashes of excellence, Meriweather lacked consistency, and I never viewed him as a needed playmaker in the backfield.

  13. izzop says: Sep 3, 2011 3:20 PM

    sounds like a perfect Steeler

  14. whoknowsnothing says: Sep 3, 2011 3:20 PM

    That goes to show you that “If your not part of the TEAM than YOUR NOT A PART OF THE TEAM.”

    That’s the Bill Belichick way he envision for his Patriot team also known as the “Patriot Way!”

  15. travisblink619 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:21 PM

    Pats can deal with Divas, but for the most part don’t like to put up with criminals. The pathetic thing is, somebody will pick up this schlub and pay him pretty well. I really am starting to get sick of the level of tolerance there is for physically gifted SCUMBAGS in the NFL. What kind of message are they sending. You can be a criminal…and get away with it, if you can run a 4.3 40.

  16. woodg8 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:22 PM

    brouhaha, now there’s a word you don’t see very often

  17. lowleadman says: Sep 3, 2011 3:22 PM

    I saw this coming. BB tried to get something for him in a trade but no takers.

    Not a total bust, and he was a hard hitter. But there was a lot to be desired if he was going to be a team player and stay in NE.

  18. june20102002 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:22 PM

    My last image of him will be last year playoffs when Braylon Edwards carried him and McCourty into the end zone. Very overrated and dirty player.

  19. pudgalvin says: Sep 3, 2011 3:22 PM

    Bears could be an option too. Both backups dinged up right now.

  20. ravenator says: Sep 3, 2011 3:23 PM

    Meriweather would give Ward a run for dirtiest player in the NFL. Can’t wait to hear about him working the grocery bagging job at the local supermarket

  21. j0esixpack says: Sep 3, 2011 3:23 PM

    Belichick won’t cut off his nose to spite his face but he knows in the long term this makes his team stronger by using Meriweather as an example to others.

    Meriweather may have been acquitted this summer but he was still hanging with the wrong crowd. Other players will take note and stay out of the non- football headlines.

  22. flagstaffphotos says: Sep 3, 2011 3:23 PM

    Anyone remember when this team was loaded with good players thanks to Parcells?

    Long, long time ago. Have to wonder how long until Kraft cleans house.

  23. richm2256 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:23 PM

    That clear things up for you, Brandon?

  24. suckaaarei says: Sep 3, 2011 3:24 PM

    Welcome to the era of Patrick Chung and Josh Barrett/Sergio Brown.

    I know Meriweather sucks but don’t you need guys with game experience to play.

  25. orthodoxdj says: Sep 3, 2011 3:26 PM

    Safety? Apparently not.

  26. zone44blitz says: Sep 3, 2011 3:27 PM

    He’ll be with the Eagles or Jets by Tuesday.

  27. tigobitties says: Sep 3, 2011 3:28 PM

    Vikes could use a decent safety.

  28. polishkingski says: Sep 3, 2011 3:29 PM

    all i can say is it must be nice to have such a solid organization to be able to tell a guy with that kind of talent to take a fxxking hike. wow. as a bills fan i can only dream.

  29. gregbeau says: Sep 3, 2011 3:32 PM

    Not a Patriots type of guy. Unfortunate that he couldn’t adapt to being a solid citizen.

  30. BTC says: Sep 3, 2011 3:32 PM

    No respect for Meriweather. He’s the garbage that led with his helmet into Ravens TE Heap for pretty much no reason. Hope he learns how to tackle right one day.

    Belichik knows what he is doing, this guy sucks. He’s been exposed over and over and he has a self important attitude.

    He really, really sucks.

  34. jobotjones says: Sep 3, 2011 3:37 PM

    Alot of teams could do worse for a free agent/waiver pickup.

    Overrated free lancer.

  37. der6495 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:40 PM

    Belichick is still salty about the INT he dropped in the Super Bowl on the final drive.

  38. jrfrom508 says: Sep 3, 2011 3:40 PM

    interesting. wonder how the jets are looking at safety? I’d sure love to see that hit-or-miss lunge no-wrap shoulder jab thingy he calls tackling stay in the division.

  39. duncanthecat says: Sep 3, 2011 3:42 PM

    With his checkered past, he would have made a good roommate for Fat Albert.

  40. backindasaddle says: Sep 3, 2011 3:42 PM

    Good! He’s a turd, mentally challenged, and undisciplined. I think this also indicates the Pats have just found some good young talent at safety considering they released both James Sanders and Meriweather in the same season.

    Bye Bye Brandon…don’t let the door hit you in your turd rear-end on the way out!

  41. castleanthrax says: Sep 3, 2011 3:42 PM

    yeah, u got it dr football. Harrison, Law, Chung, McCourty, Milloy, hell even Tebucky Jones was solid once changed to a safety. yes bb has had some duds back there, but has more good than bad.

  42. jpmelon says: Sep 3, 2011 3:45 PM

    Buffalo should take him

  43. descendency says: Sep 3, 2011 3:49 PM

    Rumor has it that Belichick sent Meriweather to get the pizza, but Meriweather missed that assignment too.

  44. jimyritz says: Sep 3, 2011 3:50 PM

    Pats don’t really have the luxury of cutting him…They cut Sanders and now Meriweather…I don’t think he will be unemployed long….

    This was expected, with his benching and spotty play last year, and the uncertainty of his legal issues. They’ve got young depth there. You know how Bill is. Keep it moving. Meriweather will land someplace this week. Probably Philly or even Tampa.

  47. j0esixpack says: Sep 3, 2011 3:53 PM

    Fans around the rest of the league probably haven’t been this baffled by a Belichick roster move since Belichick cut Lawyer Milloy just days before the first regular season game.

    How’d that work out for the Patriots again?

    LMFAO NOT WELL. They haven’t won anything since.

    Although part of that is they are probably no longer cheating (via video, anyway).

  54. burntorangehorn says: Sep 3, 2011 3:58 PM

    He was involved in a shooting incident in college, too. But the notion that the Patriots shy away from guys of questionable character is a myth. There was a character quality the Patriots valued in guys they drafted and signed that really contributed to their team success, but off-field problems weren’t deal-breakers for them.

    Overreact much? That was a horrible & illegal hit by BM & none of us Pats fans excused it but it was the only time he’s done anything that bad.

    I’m not going to lie, this puzzles me a bit with the Pats depth at safety. there must be something going on behind the scenes we don’t know about. BM isn’t a great player but getting rid if him at this stage with 0 depth is surprising. I don’t buy that it’s because of the situation he got involved with this past year.

    Also I am laughing at the usual Jets fans posting their usual tiresome idiocy on here. Soooo worried about a team yours beat in the playoffs. Amusing. Shouldn’t you be worried more about the Steelers????? They can play their “C” level game and whoop your behinds.

    To that so and so who chided me for pointing out that this june character is NOT a Pats fan as he claimed to be on another post talking about McCourty…you see it now?

    Most of us Pats fans know how the Jets fans who are trolls operate so I suggest you non Pats fans who want to chastise us do what Chris Johnson said “fake Titans fans “should do.

    I’ve never seen so much interest by fans for trolling another team who they beat so much. Fascinating dynamic.

    Yea, I also noticed they were the only team in league history to go 16-0 since they were caught “cheating.” If not for some fluke catch by a Giants receiver who hasn’t played in a game since, they would have went 19-9.

    FPatskriegdotcom,

    Patrick Chung isn’t supposed to play both positions by himself. We need to hold tight until the final rooster has been decided. Bill will more than likely bring in a veteran safety to help our secondary.

    Another Belichick 1st rd bust. The guy just can’t seem to get it right in the 1st Rd. Besides Mayo, i haven’t seen none of his projects work out. From Mauroney, C.Jackson, S – Merriweather, etc. etc.

    If it wasn’t for Tom Brady, this whole team would be at the bottom of the AFC East only ahead of Buffalo.

    there’s that and the fact that the pats secondary allowed the 3rd most passing yards in the league last year.

    yes, your secondary sucks.

  89. raider23mike says: Sep 3, 2011 5:06 PM

    Why they keep choosing half of the Patriots, Cowboys rosters to make the Pro Bowl is beyond me.

    Merriweather in Pro Bowl is just as sad as seeing Roy Williams(ex S-Cowboys) when the guy was just a hard hitter and horrible in coverage..

    Ludacris

    Merriweather never once belonged in the Pro Bowl.

    Same with Todd Haley getting a Coaching Job for “supposedly” being an offensive genius. When all the credit belongs to K.Warner/Fitzgerald.

    It’s his age and his IQ. He hates Bilichick because he spurned his Jets, and by association, him. Can’t wait til school starts next week.

    Anyone remember when this team was loaded with good players thanks to Parcells?

    Long, long time ago. Have to wonder how long until Kraft cleans house.

    You mean good players like Brady, Mankins, Wilfork, Mayo, McCourty, etc.
    Oh wait a minute should we thank Parcells for those players?
    No those are BB’s. But lets not give credit where it is due.
    Just another Pats hater!

    Meriweather is a good, fierce player. Does this mean that Darren Sharper will sign with the Patriots?

    goawayeverybody – It may be the Patriots have little choice but to sign Darren Sharper. Meriweather gets hated on for the Todd Heap hit, but the fact remains that hit fundamentally changed that game – it made the Ravens play scared, and that’s what football is about.

    Mr. Wright 212 – “without cheating?” There was no cheating.

    Saw and talked to him (Meriweather) at the NCAA in Providence. He looked a little over weight to me, at least for a safety. Also remarked that he wanted HOF status – don’t see it happening.

    More surprises to see Tate go!

    how is he not signed yet?

    He could be a great fit to the Eagles defense. Aside from Kurt Coleman, no one can tackle.

    It’s about damn time.

    No New England fan who actually follows the team will be sorry to see him go. Even if you ignore the off the field stuff, the fact of the matter is he had a terrible habit of freelancing and he’s slow. That’s a lethal combination for a DB. He makes the Pro Bowl a few times because he makes a few hits that they run on SportsCenter, but from a fundamentals standpoint, he’s simply not very good.
