Cassius Marsh did not spend much time in New England, but apparently it was enough to reap strong feelings about the Patriots.
After the Pats sold two draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks five days before the 2017 season opener to take over Marsh, the team relinquished the veteran linebacker at the end of November.
Marsh, who now plays for the San Francisco 49ers, admitted that his tenure in New England was so bad that he considered leaving the NFL.
"You do not have fun there, it's not fun, there's nothing happy about it, I did not enjoy my time there, you know what I'm saying?" Marsh told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It got me thinking for the first time in my life not to play football because I hated it so much."
In nine games with the Patriots, Marsh collected 14 tackles with a sack. According to the 25-year-old, his lack of productivity in New England was a product of the team that mistakenly used him.
"They asked me to do a lot of things I'd never done before: running backs and receivers, and basically almost never rushing the passport, which I did when I played defense line."
Marsh continued, "I confronted (Bill Belichick) with all the things that were going on, I will not go into details, but it was BS things they did, I just was not a fan I basically get asked without asking to be cut.
Marsh is hardly the first player to speak badly about the patriots. In the months following Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson called New England a "fear-based organization," while others made harsh comments about the "Patriot Way."
While Marsh apparently detests the Patriots, he's certainly happy to have former New England quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo as the signal caller in San Francisco.
