Default Chad Scott out for season

Scott done for year with knee injury; Samuel continues holdout
Associated Press
Updated: July 30, 2007, 7:53 PM ET

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots defensive back Chad Scott will miss the upcoming season because of a knee injury, the team announced Monday, as cornerback Asante Samuel's holdout continued.

Scott, 32, was placed on the reserve/injured list. The news came just hours after coach Bill Belichick continued to describe Scott's injury as day-to-day.

Last season, Scott played in 14 regular season games with nine starts. He made 44 tackles and had two interceptions. He signed with the Patriots before the 2005 season, which was cut short by a shoulder injury that October.

Scott was drafted in the first round, 24th overall, by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1997. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Steelers.

Meanwhile, Samuel continues holding out for a multiyear agreement after rejecting a one-year, $7.79 million contract.

And in other former Steelers news, Fred Gibson has been released by the Atlanta Falcons.

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution...

Quote:
Flowery Branch — In a surprising development, the Falcons released wide receiver Fred Gibson on Saturday, just three days into training camp. Gibson, who was signed as a free agent in February, had positioned himself to make the roster during offseason workouts but was told this morning he was cut.
From what I've heard over the years, the kid is dumb as brick.

The Patriots secondary always drop like flies.

If Samuel doesn't return then it'll put alot of emphasis, and pressure, on Randall Gay and Ellis Hobbs.

The front 7 will probably have to play to an elite level.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

You could always put Adalius Thomas on cornerback

They'll need the offensive weapons just to keep up with the points the defense is allowing!!!

Or a Troy Brown pull a Troy Brown.

I would have to imagine they let him stay for something and they surely don't need him at WR.

He also fits right into that defense, where you need an AARP card to start.
