The 29 year-old RB (seems like he should be older, right?) was released- maybe they are trying to make room for another 12 or 13 tight ends. This move is not surprising and the Patriots still have Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, and Danny Woodhead.
FANTASY FOOTBALL SPIN
Addai will find a team but be won’t be fantasy relevant unless there are two injuries ahead of him. The reason he will not be teamless is that he is excellent at pass protection and while he has a ton of miles on those legs he can still be an effective three down RB as a fill in – not long term. He could hold down the fort after an in-game injury and not get his QB killed.
