Jerel Worthy is now officially a total loss.
Worthy was cut by the New England Patriots on Saturday, a couple weeks after they acquired him for a conditional draft pick from the Green Bay Packers.
The operative word here is obviously “conditional.”
Worthy not making the Pats’ roster means they won’t have to give the Packers anything.
And you know what we’re gonna do.
We’re gonna officially slap the bust label on Worthy.
You fat, useless POS!
Yeah, Worthy was a second-round pick back in 2012. He played in 14 games, starting four, that year and recorded 14 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Not exactly setting the world on fire.
Unfortunately, better things were not ahead.
Worthy tore up his knee late in the 2012 campaign and although he returned around the midway point of 2013, he rarely played. Worthy played in just two games and had one tackle.
That is simply amazing considering how bad the Packers defensive line was last year. We’re pretty sure a blob in a green jersey could have gotten playing time on that unit.
This year, Worthy showed up for camp injured, so way to get things off on the right foot, jackass.
Shortly thereafter, Big Ted came to terms with the fact that he totally boned it when he selected Worthy and shipped him to the Pats, who obviously didn’t see anything more in him than the Packers did.
New England SHOULD have been the perfect situation for Worthy. They love reclamation projects and they run a 4-3 defense, which supposedly is a better fit for Worthy’s, uh… talents?
Another team will probably take a look at him, but we’re ready to close the book on Worthy.
Maybe you’ll see him working the drive-thru at your local McDonald’s someday and you can reminisce about the time he played for the Packers while he serves you a Big Mac.
Could have drafted Zach Brown and Russel Wilson…or either and still Casey Hayward
The only loser in this situation is Worthy himself.. The kid just doesn’t have it to be a player in the NFL.
I recall very questionable work ethic reading draft grades on him. maybe trust others opinions and not just your own Mr GM
TT has some of the best talent scouts in the biz, and you can bet your ass he listens to them in addition to MM and himself. Yes, that was a concern regarding Worthy, it was also a concern regarding Nick Fairley and Eddie Lacy, etc. The real issue is that worthy hurt his (lower?) back and his knees, and that’s something that’s pretty difficult to recover from even when not getting your spine slammed to the tune of an approximately 30mph car wreck 600 or so times in 4 months.
Hope You have a good season Mason. Thanks for your insight.
Dude suffered a gemosrue injury that very easily could’ve been a career ender, he’s had a setback, or two, but by most accounts he’s been committed to getting back on the field and earning his place on this team. I don’t get the impression that he, like some, is happy to just get a paycheck, he wants to contribute. Here’s hoping he’s able to.
