He played like 4 games with the Pats last year and was let go, didn't catch any passes.
But yeah he played with Favre in Minnesota and put up big numbers. Also played with the Giants before that, so Gettleman should be familiar with him.
Could have been great.....I think he is past his prime now though. I mean the Patriots tried him out and kicked him quick.
He asked to be released from his contract, not quite the same as being kicked. He was also very productive in the preseason, so much so that the locals were shocked according to the Seattle Times (and other sources).
If his knee and attitude are ready for football, then to me it's pretty much a no-brainer. He has the talent to surpass Shockey's production,
