Cassius Marsh isn’t holding back his feelings about his former team.
On Tuesday, the ex-Patriot linebacker appeared on the “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast and blasted the organization.
“The Patriot Way is extremely impressive,” Marsh said. “They work day-in and day-out. The work ethic over there, what they instill, is pretty legendary.
“But they also treat players like crap. You don’t have a lunch period. You get there and you have to make time to eat in between meetings. And they’re like five- to ten-minute periods where I would literally go scoop food and put it in a cup and crush it real quick before I got to the next meeting. There’s no fun.”
The Patriots originally acquired Marsh in a trade with the Seahawks in September of 2017. He appeared in nine games and recorded 19 tackles before New England released him in November of that year.
This isn’t the first time that Marsh has spoken out against the Patriots and the alleged “Patriot Way.” In 2018, Marsh, then with the 49ers, told the San Francisco Chronicle that he “hated” his time in New England so much that he contemplated quitting football altogether.
“Patriots fans hate me,” Marsh said on Tuesday. “I am probably one of the most-hated former Patriots. Up there. Top five, at least.
“… Here’s the thing: over there, nobody says anything publicly because they have won so many championships. So, you don’t want to upset the fan base because after you win a Super Bowl, you can get paid for signings in New England for the resto f your life because you’re a Super Bowl champ. … I mean, they win games so you just really can’t argue with championships.”
