Former Patriot Marquice Cole signed with the Broncos yesterday. This led to sort of a mini-controversy in Patriot land.
Cole can maybe give the Broncos some inside info, more so than Deion Branch when he signed with the Colts last week. The former Pats corner knows his teammates tendencies a little bit better and can also give some info on nagging injuries.
So, are there hard feelings in the locker room? Let's ask Talib.

Also he is a man that respects a good blocking tight end.
Mankins talks about how TEs only valued for catches these days."But the tight ends on our team are vital to our success in the running game"— Mary Paoletti (@Mary_Paoletti) January 15, 2014

Belichick is smiling all over the place this morning. He must have gotten wind of the Internet meme.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) January 15, 2014
What meme? This meme!
Bill also went on to talk about the Patriots playing on the road in the AFC Championship game. He really really seemed to care about that.
