Demaryius Thomas calls stint with Patriots a waste of time: ‘It was disrespectful to me’
Demaryius Thomas is speaking out about his short-lived stint with the Patriots calling it a “waste of time.”
The receiver signed a one-year contract with New England in April, but was released during final roster cuts on Aug. 31. He then re-signed with the Patriots two days later, only to be traded to the Jets a week later.
“It was insulting, for sure,” Thomas told the Daily News Wednesday. “Once I got cut (on Aug. 31), I could have just come here (to the Jets) and not stayed there and re-sign. When they re-signed me, I was thinking that I was good. Two weeks later, I was gone. So, it’s like, ‘Why did I waste my time?’ Because at the end of the day, it was kind of a waste of time for me.”
Thomas said he felt a little blindsided by the move, since he had a good relationship with quarterback Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who drafted Thomas to the Broncos in 2010 when he was Denver’s coach.
