Trojan Dismount

The New England Patriots released Oscar Lua this week. After being picked in the seventh round of last year’s draft, Oscar’s hopes were to eventually fill needs for an aging Patriots linebacking corps. Winning a spot on the roster last summer, a knee injury restricted Lua from performing and making any additional impressions in any way.

Eagles’ Mike Patterson was arrested last week on possession charges. When police approached what they believed to be an abandoned vehicle, they found both Mike and his brother inside, along with marijuana and a joint still burning in the ashtray. Patterson’s brother also had numerous arrest warrants. We’ll have to wait for the disciplinary action to be handed down by the NFL, which is almost certain to come.
