Former Patriot Cassius Marsh Calls Out Team for ‘Joyless’ Experience


Looks like it isn’t always sunny in New England…

While I bet it’s nice to be on a roster basically guaranteed a playoff berth year in and year out, one former Patriot has spoke out about the ‘joyless’ nature he experienced while as a member of Bill Belichick’s bunch.

Now a proud member of the ​San Francisco 49ers, linebacker Cassius Marsh is excited to begin a season and be part of an organization in which he feels values his skills and strengths.

Per the San Francisco Chronicle Marsh was quoted as saying, “They asked me to do a bunch of stuff that I had never done: covering running backs and receivers and basically almost never rushing the passer, which is what I did in playing defensive line.”

The linebacker went as far as explaining that nothing was enjoyable as a member of the Pats.

“They don’t have fun there. There’s nothing fun about it. There’s nothing happy about it. I didn’t enjoy any of my time there, you know what I’m saying?”

Throughout his four years in the league Marsh, 25, has proved very little but his upside remains the biggest reason he’s being embraced and was rewarded with a ​two-year contract extension this past offseason.

Hopefully for Marsh San Francisco is the home he’s been looking for, however for him I bet anywhere is an upgrade from New England.
