BOSTON (AP) Patriots cornerback Ty Law wants to leave the team after playing a key role in the team's drive toward a Super Bowl championship.

''Right now, it's not about money,'' Law told The Boston Globe. ''That bridge is burned. I no longer want to be a Patriot. I can't even see myself putting on that uniform again, that's how bad I feel about playing here.''

Law, battling with the team over a contract extension, said he had ''irreconcilable differences'' with the club and told coach Bill Belichick and vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli he wanted to play elsewhere.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James had no comment to The Associated Press on Saturday.

Law last month called a four-year $26 million offer from New England an ''insult.'' The contract calls for him to make $16.9 million over the next two seasons. The Patriots' proposal would guarantee Law $15.6 million over the next two years, the Globe reported.

''I can't do a thing about it but express my displeasure about playing for this organization,'' Law said. ''I'll go to training camp. I've got bonuses for going to training camp. I'm just saying it won't be a comfortable working atmosphere.''
