Veteran TE wants to keep playing
#Patriots TE Ben Watson, who was not activated today by New England meaning his tenure is over, does want to keep playing, I’m told. So retirement gets pushed off against as he looks for a new home. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Watson is now a free agent and able to sign with another team. Given the state of the position in fantasy football, Watson owners can hang on to him and see where he lands. The Patriots are not utilizing their tight end in the passing game to make Ryan Izzo or Matt LaCosse a worthwhile fantasy asset.
