Why did Patriots re-sign Ben Watson? Bill Belichick has straightforward reason

"It was insulting, for sure", Thomas told the New York Daily News" Manish Mehta on Wednesday.

Demaryius Thomas is quite the wider receiver and heading into this season, it seemed as though he would get the chance to play with the New England Patriots and legendary quarterback Tom Brady. Two weeks later, I was gone. I was only trying to be a part of something that was going to be good when I was there.

Darnold certainly executed the game plan efficiently against the Cowboys following a three-week absence, completing 23 of 32 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson and tight end Matt LaCosse were healthy at the time of Watson's initial release, but the Patriots had a need for the tight end after both players got hurt last Thursday against the New York Giants. After N'Keal Harry was placed on the injured reserve, Thomas was re-signed, but traded once the prospect of signing Antonio Brown presented itself.

"On Friday, I had a philosophical disagreement with my position coach that has led to my suspension", Bennett said. "Our offensive line, too, they played well the last game, with the way we've been running the ball and the way they've been protecting, I think sky's the limit for us". He said he was given assurances that he would have a spot on the 53-man roster on multiple occasions, but he could have "easily" just signed with the Jets had he known he'd be given the boot in favor of Brown. I always knew I was going to be able to still play... and it would have worked out because I was still learning their offense. You told me when you cut me at the (final) cut, sit around you'll bring me back. I could have been here the next day after I got released. I felt like I was truthful with him but things changed and therefore what I said was not the same as what it was - what I'd said previously.

After bringing Brown aboard, Belichick chose to keep undrafted rookies Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski over Thomas and that probably didn't feel great for the 32-year-old.

Hint: He later returned to the Patriots.
