Why would the pats cut Thomas? They don't have anyone to replace him with.
Are he and BB best buds, no. Bust there has been no talk about him being divisive. This is the first time in a long time that a player went public, but to think that BB would just cut a guy and not at least trade him in unreasonable.
AD has two years left on his contract, if he wants out BB will have his agent find a trading team.
