Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer catches up with former Patriots and current Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs in today's editions. Hobbs has previously been complimentary of the Patriots, but he was singing a different tune in the piece.
Hobbs reflected on his time in New England, and appeared to be calling out some of his former teammates, saying: "I played with a torn labrum in my shoulder and a sports hernia. Not one day did I shut it down. I was a starter and on special teams, and I did anything that was required. Guys were dogging it and tanking it sometimes. I mean, put it out there, some guys were faking injuries and getting a certain amount of dollars."
Hobbs also felt he deserved a contract extension in New England, according to the piece.
"The trade was beneficial for me, because I started going down the wrong path," Hobbs said. "There were going to be plenty of problems there. When it happened, it was more of a relief for me. I felt like I didn't get my just due when I was there, but I'm one of many that didn't get their just due there. It has happened before, and it won't stop. I was just one guy before the next guy."
