Watson will be suspended for the first four games of the season for a PED violation

Summary

Looking to fill a Gronk-sized gap at tight end, the Patriots brought Ben Watson out of retirement only to have him suspended for four games due to PEDs he used while retired. It sounds like they knew this might happen - his contract seems to have been designed in such a way as to let him earn that money back - but by the time he returns, Austin Seferian-Jenkins will have had a month to steal the job. We think the two cancel each other out a bit, but Watson, who has been quietly productive in his career, is likely to take a back seat. (May 29)
