Patriots decline option on versatile mainstay Troy Brown

The New England Patriots declined an option on receiver-turned-cornerback Troy Brown on Tuesday, allowing the 12-year veteran to become a free agent.

Brown was scheduled to earn $2.5 million in salary next season and was also reportedly due a $2.5 million bonus, meaning the team saved at least $5 million against next year's salary cap by cutting him loose.

Once one of the Patriots' most dependable receivers, Brown's biggest contribution in the most recent Super Bowl season was on defense. With the New England secondary weakened by injuries, Brown filled in as an extra defensive back. Working mainly as a nickel back in passing situations, Brown had three interceptions, broke up five passes and made 17 tackles last season.

Looks like a salary cap move by the Pats, Brown is a heck of a football player. The Pats have already released Roman Phifer and Ty Law sice the Super Bowl. I dont think it's 100% that Tedy Bruschi will be back either after his illness.

I'm thinking that the rest of the league will seemingly makes big strides towards catching them, but, in reality, it's just them taking steps back, they also lost both coordinators, don't forget. Brady and Belicheck can't do it by themselves...
