Patriots notebook: Ron Gronkowski wants time to consider his future

"There are a lot of things that go into that".

Belichick says it was a football decision, which makes it even more confusing - not only for fans and media members, but players themselves.

More and more details continue to pour out to the reasons as to why the New England Patriots made a decision to bench one of their best players in the most important games of the year.

"We put the best - the players out there and the game plan out there that we thought would be the best tonight like we always do". Especially after the Patriots defense had its worst game of the season and Butler's replacements had no answers for Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Naidu plans to lead his MPs' delegation to PM
Stating that there will be no compromise on the state's interests, he said the future course of action would be decided by Naidu. There were also claims that Naidu had spoken to Shiv Sena leaders, though Chowdary denied this.

Butler said after the game that he wasn't sure why he was benched. "I respect Malcolm's competitiveness, and I'm sure that he felt like he could have helped". I guess I wasn't playing good or they didn't feel comfortable. You make the decision to give us the best chance to win.

The story surrounding the 49ers' need for a cornerback took an interesting turn in Sunday night's Super Bowl.

The three players that the Patriots chose to use instead of Butler, Rowe, Johnson Bademosi and Jordan Richards, all graded out significantly worse than Butler.

After the game, the cornerback didn't have anything to say as to why he didn't play in the biggest game of the season.

Janet Yellen's Fed tenure may be the calm before the storm
With the outset of the Powell era only days away, analysts do not expect a dramatic shift from the Fed on Wednesday. Against the Euro the Dollars has lost significant ground, with the exchange rate now sitting at over a 3 year high.

The same Malcolm Butler the Patriots were trying to trade for a first-round pick to New Orleans last offseason and who should be among the most sought-after free agent cornerbacks this spring. "It kind of turned out that way, and the game with the way it went and some of the situations that came up, that was just kind of the way it went", he said.

If you're going to go down, you may as well at least go down with your best players on the field. "It is what it is", Butler told ESPN.

Browner doubled down in a subsequent post, saying "a locker room was divided pregame". Butler was a star in the team's 2014 National Football League title. He's one of many holes the team would need to fill from a defense that gave up 538 yards in the Super Bowl. He started his Patriots career with a life-changing, Super Bowl-winning interception.

Benching Butler cost the Patriots another Super Bowl ring.
