Pats say goodbye Jeff Demps; Hello Leon Washington
New England Patriots running back Jeff Demps recently announced he’s returning to track. Demps didn’t say he wants to quit football, but I don’t believe Bill Belichick wanted a two sport athlete when he signed him last preseason. Demps going back to track shows his commitment to the team does not exist. You need players to be totally committed to your team, because you want to know that they will not abandon you for some other commitment. Family obligations are understandable, but doing two sports in professional sports proves you care more about yourself, than the team. Demps will still have value on the team going forward, but who’s to say he will continue with the team if he wants to just commit himself to track?
