Now a Dolphin, Gary Guyton reflects on his time in New England

When it comes to his time with the Patriots, you won’t hear a bad word from linebacker Gary Guyton. The former New Englander, who signed with the Dolphins earlier this month, held his first Q&A with the South Florida media on Tuesday, and reflected on his four seasons with the Patriots.

‘€œI learned a lot while I was there and had a good time while I was there,’€ said Guyton, signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech in 2008. ‘€œI learned just how to be professional and how to play the game.’€

One former teammate who was sad to see Guyton go was Jerod Mayo. The two had become close over the years, and I asked him Tuesday what it would be like not to have Guyton with him on the field after they spent four years together.

‘€œHe’€™s been beside me for a long time now,’€ Mayo said. ‘€You see us in the locker room always chopping it up. He’€™s a good player. He’€™s moved on to another team. I hope he wins every game, except for the ones against us.’€
