Free agent TE Gary Barnidge tells Don Banks of Patriots.com that he still has good years left in him.
“My first seven years in the league, I didn’t play that much, so my legs are good to go,” Barnidge said. “I’ve still got good years left.”
While Barnidge visited with the Bills and has found some interest from the Broncos, Jaguars, and Panthers, he plans to wait for another opportunity to surface.
“I’ve got to just sit and wait,” Barnidge said. “Wherever I can get an opportunity and contribute, that’s been the motto of my career. I didn’t expect to, but I’m waiting again to show what I can do.”

Ravens TE Maxx Williams said he feels great and is eager to get back on the practice field after undergoing a complicated knee surgery that had never been performed on an NFL player.
“Who wants to sit out a whole season? I’m ready to get back,” Williams said, via BaltimoreRavens.com. “The positive is that I don’t have to worry about [the knee] anymore because we took care of it. But it sucks right now watching them practice and not being able to.”
In regards to the surgery, Williams doesn’t sound all that worried that he was the first player to have undergone this procedure.
“There has to be a first for everything,” Williams said. “There was someone who had the first ACL surgery, so I take it for what it is and have to prove to everyone I can come back.”
