    Every team in the league does this, not sure why this is a story.

    It's bad for the players because when they are looking for a new contract, injury concerns are part of the negotiations. It's hard to argue that you weren't injured when your team put you on IR for the year. IT shouldn't happen though, that's not what the IR rule is for.

    This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Brady's been on the injury report for a shoulder the past 7 years,

    This.

    Didn't we do this with Alec Lemon? Trevardo Williams? I heard Lemon sprained an ankle or something and the next thing we knew he was on IR. Kubiak said that Trevardo Williams was a little banged up but he'd be okay for the season opener and then a few days later he ended up on IR.

    Well what good is an off season if fans aren't looking for ways to bash the Patriots or to call them cheaters for anything they can. LoL!

    OK, I want Watt, Cushing, Foster, AJ, Brown, whoever is going to be our starting QB and/or our drafted QB, and Clowney (if he is a Texan) listed on the injury report from now on. :spin:

    Or let's look at the flip side. Take a guy who constantly shows the signs of his hip injury over the last three years that wants a pay day. If I were that guy I'd be singing the exact same tune. Hip? What hip? No, I'm great. I was not injured last season either! In fact, that was just an evil plot from those bastards in management on my old team (who coincedentally didn't want to pay me btw).
