FOXBOROUGH -- One storyline leading into Thursday's game between the Patriots and Jets is Ty Law signing with the Jets. Patriots players reacted to the news today.
"It's going to be a little weird," defensive end Ty Warren said, noting that this isn't the first time the Patriots have played against him. "Ty is Ty, like Manny is Manny."
Warren reflected on being a teammate of Law's in 2003 and 2004 when asked if Law will be able to contribute on Thursday.
"I know Ty has a good work ethic. I remember as a young player driving in at 6 in the morning and seeing him running five miles up and down Rte. 1 before the day had even begun. I'm sure he's been in shape and he's probably been talking to them the last couple of weeks knowing this could come."
Said running back Kevin Faulk: "I'm happy for him that he's back in the game. At the same time, we're playing against him, so you can't be that happy."
Coach Bill Belichick was asked if he'd maintained contact with Law.
"I haven't talked to Ty in probably a couple months," he said.
