Every team wants an elite linebacker and the Patriots think that they have one in Uche. He showed glimpses of his capabilities in his rookie and sophomore years. But now he’s entering his third season as a professional and must deliver consistently (via Boston Herald).
Bill Belichick knows how to spot a player and thinks that Uche fits the bill. But their veteran group of linebackers is no more so it’s time for him to deliver now. It could be a breakout season but they’ll move on if he doesn’t deliver. The NFL is a dog-eat-dog world and he’s aware of this.
