FOXBORO – In an 11-minute session with reporters at his locker, Adalius Thomas said he wanted to clear his name after being sent home for showing up nine minutes late for a meeting on Wednesday morning.
“I’m dumbfounded,” Thomas said. “I don’t try to figure it out. There’s a lot of things that go on that you’re dumbfounded by, not just that. You just roll with it. I’m an Indian, I’m not the chief. I just roll with the punches. Motivation is for kindergartners. I’m not a kindergartner. Sending someone home, that’s like you’re expelled. Go home and make good grades. Get that [crap] out of here.”
Thomas, Randy Moss, Derrick Burgess and Gary Guyton were all sent home for being late.
