FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Pass, too, shall come to this.
Earlier this week, Pass was doing interviews about his homecoming. It made for a great story, although not an enduring one.
The Patriots drafted him in the seventh round in 2000. He played on their three Super Bowl championship teams and left through free agency after the 2006 season.
He was out of the game in 2007 and 2008 to concentrate on family issues he didn't reveal.
