His release was surprise to everyone in new england. He would not be a solution alone but could be a piece to the puzzle.

Here's the story on that. Weird...

In case you had any doubt as to the truism that professional football is a ruthless business, wonder no more. Two weeks after he was diagnosed with diabetes, former New England Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love was released by the team via a non-football injury designation.

“This comes on the heels of Kyle having been diagnosed within the past two weeks with Type-2 diabetes," Richard Kopelman, Love's agent, told ESPN Boston. "Naturally, we are disappointed that the Patriots decided to part ways with Kyle, especially in light of the fact that a number of elite professional athletes with diabetes – both Type-1, which is known to be far more difficult to manage than Type-2 diabetes – have had very successful careers in professional football, hockey, baseball and basketball.

“Prior to the diagnosis, Kyle recently experienced unexplained weight loss, but since being diagnosed and having altered his diet, Kyle has regained most of the weight he lost, is in good health, and was not limited in any way during offseason workouts in which he was engaged up until being told he would be released."

Re: Saints worked out several defensive tackles

That's a strange reason to release a player, especially after they have diagnosed it and he altered his diet accordingly

Jay cutler has diabetes, he doesn't get released.

Wade Wilson had diabetes and took insulin shots and played? for the Saints & Dallas.

Re: Saints worked out several defensive tackles

Wouldn't that be nice if this move worked out well for us? We could even have a player for next year.....not just to finish out this season. We do wonders with retreads here in New Orleans.
