Released Patriots WR Underwood Tweets During Super Bowl XLVI

Former Patriots wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, released a day before the Super Bowl, sent dozens of tweets during the game Sunday but didn’t have much to say immediately after it was over.

The Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants for the second time in five seasons, 21-17.

Eli Manning was named MVP again after leading an 88-yard drive that ended in Ahmad Bradshaw’s go-ahead six-yard touchdown run with 57 seconds remaining.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed a 19-yard pass to Deion Branch on 4th-and-16, but his last-second Hail Mary pass fell incomplete in the end zone, just out of the reach of injured tight end Rob Gronkowski.

“Good Game Right There,” Underwood wrote on Twitter. “Congrats To NY.”

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Underwood would have received a ring and a share of the Super Bowl money had New England won the game.

He was released Saturday, on the eve of the title game, to make room for defensive end Alex Silvestro on the 53-man active roster and said later on Twitter that it was “nothing but motivation” for him.
