Patriots snag TE Jake Ballard off waivers from Giants


Patriots snag TE Jake Ballard off waivers from Giants

This is how you know there isn't much fantasy news going on: Two notes on an injured, mediocre tight end in less than 24 hours. It's June, people.
The New York Giants waived Jake Ballard @TheJakeBallard on Monday, but they were hoping to re-acquire him once he cleared waivers. However, the New England Patriots would have none of it. The Patriots claimed him on Tuesday. Ballard, who failed a physical which led to his ouster, is still very unlikely to play this season. He will be an exclusive-rights free agent after the year, meaning that the Pats can retain him by simply making a qualifying offer of $630,000 for the 2013 campaign.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Giants defeated the Patriots in the most recent Super Bowl, and Ballard scored the game-winning touchdown in the Giants' victory at New England during the regular season, so consider this the Pats' way of trying to stick it to the G-Men. Whatever. Ballard is off fantasy radars for 2012.
