Love landed on his feet with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and now he's speaking out about the surprising end of his run at Foxborough.
"That's how they run their business up there," Love told The Florida Times-Union on Monday. "Veteran guys who have been there for years and put in a lot of work get treated like rookies."
Love said he arrived at Patriots camp in good condition.
"It's not like I lost 30 pounds," he said.
"I was never out of shape -- I participated every day, so I don't know where that came from."
Love was a solid two-down lineman for the Patriots, but he'll have to earn his roster spot with the Jaguars. He's one of 17 defensive linemen currently under contract in Jacksonville. The good news for Love is that the Jaguars are in a rebuilding process along their line. There are jobs to be had.
Though Love's circumstances are unique, he's hardly the first veteran player the Patriots abruptly cut loose. It can lead to hurt feelings, but you can't argue with the results on Patriot Way.
