Local notebook: Asa Watson waived by the New England Patriots

Asa Watson, the former Rock Hill Bearcat and N.C. State Wolfpack tight end, was waived Monday by the New England Patriots after one preseason game. Watson, who signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in May, was trying to make the team where his older brother, Benjamin, broke into the NFL 10 years ago. Watson played in the team’s Thursday night preseason opener but wasn’t targeted with a pass attempt.
