You gotta love Leigh Bodden’s attitude. The Patriots cornerback missed all of last season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. Prior to the injury, he had signed a four-year, $22 million deal.L. Bodden (US Presswire)

“If the lockout thing blows over, and we get to play football,” Bodden told Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “I’ll be excited to come back and earn that contract, and earn that money the Patriots gave me.”

Before his injury, the former Brown had proved to be an excellent fit in New England’s variegated zone-based scheme. His value to the club was highlighted in the early season instability that marred the No. 2 corner slot (Darius Butler wound up losing his job to undrafted youngster Kyle Arrington; Arrington struggled at times).

A healthy Bodden across from burgeoning star Devin McCourty would make for a stellar – if not spectacular – tandem.

“It was definitely difficult for me personally to sit out and not play football, the game that I love, the game that I’ve been playing forever. But to watch as a fan, to watch the season that (the Patriots) had, it was just amazing to watch guys like Devin McCourty grow up in a heartbeat,” Bodden said.

“You can never say, ‘This guy is going to be great or this guy is going to be this good,’ but when he first came, he made a few plays where I was amazed and shocked and like, ‘Man, he’s going to be a player.’ Me, personally, I didn’t think he would be as good as he was during the season, but like I told a lot of those young guys, ‘When you get that playing experience on the field, you just learn on the go.’ ”
