Tackle Antonio Garcia never played in a game for the Patriots after they drafted him in the third round last year and his next chance at getting into a contest will come with another AFC East team.
According to multiple reports, the Jets have claimed Garcia off of waivers.
There’s no doubt Thomas has been a huge part of what the Seahawks have accomplished under coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider in Seattle. But the Seahawks ‘ numerous roster and coaching staff moves this offseason show they aren’t afraid to part ways with the on-field architects of their past glories.
Looking past Thomas’ somewhat strange Christmas Eve locker room visit with Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, there has been plenty of speculation about the six-time Pro Bowler’s future in Seattle. Although the Seahawks want to sign the 29-year-old to a contract extension, the numbers might not be palpable to the team’s long-term plans.
Duncan made 124 receptions for 1,452 yards and nine touchdowns at Vanderbilt.
Moore was a three-year starter at North Carolina State, playing 52 games and making 267 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, three interceptions and four sacks.

The NFL, by referring to the situation as a “civil matter” in its comment on the Manning situation, apparently has concluded that, without a prosecution, there can be no crime of fraud — even if actual fraud has occurred.

As explained last month, there’s a fine line (and maybe no line) between civil and criminal fraud.
