Former Patriots defensive lineman Kyle Love, released by New England last week and picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars, discussed his former team with the Florida Times-Union Monday. Love, who was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, said the disease runs in his family and that it did not result in significant weight loss.
“My mom and dad both have it, so I was bound to get it,” he said. “It’s not like I lost 30 pounds."
Love defended the shape he was in when he arrived to New England's offseason workouts. He said his release didn't surprise him.
“That’s how they run their business up there," he said. "Veteran guys who have been there for years and put in a lot of work get treated like rookies."
