Jeff Howe reports Sammy Morris says he discussed a potential 2012 reunion with the Patriots but nothing is set in stone.
"It’s definitely reciprocal," Morris said. "I’m still here. My family is here. My kids still go to school here, so it’s definitely reciprocal. I’ve been around a while, so I kind of just know the deal. Words are one thing, but all I can do is take care of my part. If something materializes, then I know I’ll be ready."
"I’m not going to close the door on any opportunity just simply because the desire is still there," Morris said. "I’ve always said once the desire or the love for the game is gone, that’s when I’ll hang it up. But it’s still there, so I’m doing everything I can on my end."
