CB Law wants to sever ties with Patriots

By wire services
Published March 14, 2004

BOSTON - Cornerback Ty Law wants to leave the Patriots after playing a key role in their drive toward a Super Bowl championship.

"Right now, it's not about money," Law told the Boston Globe. "That bridge is burned. I no longer want to be a Patriot. I can't even see myself putting on that uniform again, that's how bad I feel about playing here."

Law, battling with the team over a contract extension, said he had "irreconcilable differences" with the club and told coach Bill Belichick and vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli he wanted to play elsewhere.

Team spokesman Stacey James had no comment Saturday.

Law last month called a four-year, $26-million offer an "insult." The contract calls for him to make $16.9-million over the next two seasons. The Patriots' proposal would guarantee $15.6-million over the next two years, the Globe reported.

CHIEFS: Free-agent tackle Chris Bober signed a five-year deal. Bober played four seasons and made 32 starts with the Giants.

RAIDERS: Former All-Pro linebacker Dwayne Rudd signed, joining his third team in three seasons. Rudd played 16 games last season with the Buccaneers, who released him last month.

LYNCH'S OPTIONS: The Patriots and Broncos are the latest teams to express interest in John Lynch. Others who would like to sign the former Bucs safety are the Jets, Colts, Bengals, Lions and Seahawks. Lynch is expected to visit with Seattle officials today.

OBITUARY: Former lineman James Parrish died Wednesday after a lengthy illness. He was 35. Parrish was a member of 10 different teams, including the 1994 Super Bowl champion Cowboys and the 1996 AFC champion Steelers.
