    I think there's more to the story.

    I wonder if it was health, man can't stay on the field. The roster spot might be more valuable than the extra 1.7 million

    It said he played 25% of the defensive snaps as a sub. Not sure if it's a good thing or not.

    The Pats coaching staff finally figured out his knee wasn't tweaked after all.

      Sucks for both of them. New England likes drafting former Gators, but it seems like more times than not, the pick doesn't end well for them.

      Gotta be the knees and the fact that he can't stay healthy enough to finish a season. Somebody will likely pick him up though.

      Tom Curran (CSN-NE) tweeted: "Regarding Easley, there is no one incident that led to release. Call it philosophical differences on following injury programs, etc"

      I hope he gets signed by the Patriots because they will make the best use of his talents.

      New England liked signing former gators that played for Urban. I assume Bellichik will move on the POSU now

      No surprise. We had so many issues with that 2010 class. Remember how they staged a walk out in their freshman year because they thought they were entitled to more respect from the veterans?

        Do we blame Meyer or Muschamp for Easley's attitude?

          Wow... thanks for posting that article. I always thought Easley was one of the good guys, but it seems now that he truly has an attitude problem. I certainly got the feeling there were locker room issues when Champ was here, but this seems to show that Easley was part of the problem.

          I hope he turns it around and gets mature!

          As unbalanced as it was, that class could've actually been a championship caliber class with better circumstances. They were essentially tricked into thinking they'd, at best, have Meyer, and at worst, Addazio(who they at least liked). Instead, they got a post-signing day shuffle of coordinators that were significant downgrades, a zoned out HC for one season, and then a raving lunatic the rest of their career. As bad as it looked at the time, guys like Haden and the WR from PA were probably smart to bail so early.

          But Easley was always a bit of a head case, so this isn't surprising. He'd already de-commited from Psu earlier in the cycle and then told Oregon that he was announcing for them the night before he put on a UF hat at the UA Game. The story was always that his performance garnered Meyer's attention and that was the reason for his pledge. But in hindsight, I have to wonder if other schools had already backed away from him, leaving us his best/only option. Definitey talented, with equal maturity issues, which was kind of the Meyer staple. Then throw in 3 seasons of lack of discipline from WM, and it's no surprise his issues are what they are. Still on him though. Another kid throwing away a career with no concept of accountability.
