Jerel Worthy is now officially a total loss.
Worthy was cut by the New England Patriots on Saturday, a couple weeks after they acquired him for a conditional draft pick from the Green Bay Packers.
The operative word here is obviously “conditional.”
Worthy not making the Pats’ roster means they won’t have to give the Packers anything.
And you know what we’re gonna do.
We’re gonna officially slap the bust label on Worthy.
You fat, useless POS!
Yeah, Worthy was a second-round pick back in 2012. He played in 14 games, starting four, that year and recorded 14 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Not exactly setting the world on fire.
Unfortunately, better things were not ahead.
Worthy tore up his knee late in the 2012 campaign and although he returned around the midway point of 2013, he rarely played. Worthy played in just two games and had one tackle.
That is simply amazing considering how bad the Packers defensive line was last year. We’re pretty sure a blob in a green jersey could have gotten playing time on that unit.
This year, Worthy showed up for camp injured, so way to get things off on the right foot, jackass.
Shortly thereafter, Big Ted came to terms with the fact that he totally boned it when he selected Worthy and shipped him to the Pats, who obviously didn’t see anything more in him than the Packers did.
New England SHOULD have been the perfect situation for Worthy. They love reclamation projects and they run a 4-3 defense, which supposedly is a better fit for Worthy’s, uh… talents?
Another team will probably take a look at him, but we’re ready to close the book on Worthy.
Maybe you’ll see him working the drive-thru at your local McDonald’s someday and you can reminisce about the time he played for the Packers while he serves you a Big Mac.
