Dominique Easley

Post by stong » Wed Apr 13, 2016 6:17 pm

Just read the Pats released him. I remember when he was drafted 2 years ago, many mocks had us taking him. His size 6'2" 285 lbs. seems like he would be a good fit as a 3-tech.

Should we sign him?

Very injury prone, which is why he was released.

Some off-the-field issues though not what was rumored.

Also some resistance to re-hab.

I would let him clear waivers 1st and then attempt to sign him to "lets see what you got" contract.

If BB and the Pats didnt want him then thats good enough for me.

Boston Globe article details that he was a major PIA off the field.

No thanks.

Here are other factors on his release.

Easley struggled with “maturity and his responsibilities of being a professional athlete,” The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reported Wednesday.

Here are other details of Easley’s dismissal from Volin:

— Easley is “a 25-year-old in a 40-year-old’s body” because of his knee injuries, two league sources told Volin.

— Easley is a “locker room cancer,” according to a former Patriots teammate.

— Easley couldn’t participate in rookie minicamp because of “injuries to his ankles, arms, and wrists sustained when bitten by his pet pitbull two weeks before the draft,” according to Volin. Easley didn’t tell teams about the injuries before the draft.

— He is being sued by a friend for injuries suffered due to bites by Easley’s dog. Easley is “bracing for the possibility of two other lawsuits being filed against him by other parties,” according to Volin.

— Easley is “unreliable and immature,” league sources told Volin.

— Easley “ignored requests to rehab his injuries with the Patriots’ trainers, and instead did it on his own,” according to Volin.

— Easley was told to stay away from the Patriots’ facility after being placed on injured reserve after 11 games in 2014 and rehab on his own, according to Volin.

— Easley would never listen to medical advice, a source told Volin.

Easley is actually costing the Patriots $907,918 more against the cap now that he’s been released. He’s subject to waivers, so another team can claim him at his $1.08 million 2016 salary.

Wonder if we will bring him in for a sit down and workout and physical. Things getting dicey.
