New England Patriots Reportedly Sign Veteran Tight End

And I think this team has always done a good job pushing through those moments, those opportunities.

Now, Darnold and the Jets hope to use that momentum to get something going against the Patriots' top-ranked defense at MetLife Stadium in a prime-time showdown.

The Patriots were clear with Demaryius Thomas when they cut him in August that the plan was to bring him back.

The New England Patriots' post-Rob Gronkowski era continued with the additions of tight ends Eric Tomlinson and Ben Watson, the team announced Tuesday. He's been active for three games and caught all four of his targets for 62 yards last Sunday, in his first game with quarterback Sam Darnold. "That was obvious in the Dallas game that their execution and some of the things they were doing they were just more efficient at and looked better doing them". NY is also expecting linebacker C.J. Mosley, sidelined since injuring his groin in the season opener, to return Monday night.

"Coach (Belichick) came up to me and was like, 'Uh, we got too many guys".

Darryl Slater, NFL reporter: The Jets barely hung on to beat the Cowboys, 24-22, after taking a 21-3 lead in the first half. We just haven't really been a whole offense. Linebacker Cassius Marsh, who played for New England early in 2017, noted how he hated his time with the Patriots and even pondered quitting football while in New England.

Johnson & Johnson recalls baby powder over asbestos concerns
Containers of Johnson's baby powder made by Johnson and Johnson are displayed on a shelf on July 13, 2018 in San Francisco, Calif. Johnson & Johnson says it is working with the Food and Drug Administration to investigate how the bottle became contaminated.

Kickoff for Monday's Patriots-Jets game is set for 8:15 p.m.

Claimed off waivers this season by the Giants on September 1, Tomlinson, 27, played seven offensive snaps in three games for them before being released on September 24.

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. "So, it's like, 'Why did I waste my time?' Because at the end of the day, it was kind of a waste of time for me".

The 38-year-old tight end came out of retirement this offseason to sign with the Patriots, who originally drafted him back in 2004.

Belichick declined to comment when asked about the suspension this week.
