Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Cassius Marsh, 29, is speaking out about his short tenure in New England, and it’s not the positive experience that many have been led to believe.
“The Patriot Way is extremely impressive,” Marsh said.
“They work day-in and day-out. Their work ethic over there, what they instill, is pretty legendary. But they also treat players like crap.
“You don’t have a lunch period. You get there, and you have to make time to eat in between meetings. And they’re, like, five to 10 minute periods where I would literally go scoop food and put it in a cup and crush it real quick before I got to the next meeting. There’s no fun. There’s no — well, that is what I got in trouble for, for saying they don’t have fun.”
Marsh’s NFL career in terms of numbers are not all that impressive. He’s played in 92 games and earned only nine starts over his career.
The linebacker recently said on Tom Segura’s podcast that the Patriots’ Way comes at the expense of the players and being able to enjoy the game of football.
