I think as punishment for their sins, the Patriots should be required to draft him with their first pick and START him for Tom Brady's entire life.

DAMN!

I picked him in 3rd round for Atlanta in our mock.

He's still got to be better than Chris Terry.
Invite him to camp as a free agent.

some of these posts are pretty classless. Can't you even wait until training camp starts

Seriously though, if the life expectancy of a Newberrian is 22 years, why was he a draft prospect anyway? How can any 22 year old kid ever die of "natural causes"?

Terrible to see a kid go. Especially one with such a bright future.

MUCH more likely that it was either some kind of undiagnosed disease, weight loss supplement, and/or a heart problem. Anabolic steroids don't kill people.

They've ruled out drugs and alcohol, people. The death was due to natural causes.
