TE Ben Watson Comes Out Of Retirement, Signs With Patriots

USA Today

TE Ben Watson has come out of retirement to join the team that drafted him in 2004, the New England Patriots! Watson recently retired after the NFC Championship with the New Orleans Saints.

Watson hopes to fill the whole the Patriots desperately needed after Rob Gronkowski retired due to his health. Watson already knows the Patriots offense very well which is where he was drafted in 2004. He went on to win a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots after they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 in Super Bowl XXXIX.

I expect Watson to do extraordinary with the Patriots but I don’t see him ‘carrying the load’ for the TE position as the Patriots also added Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In the Tweet below, you can see the updated skill players for the Patriots courtesy of Field Yates.
