Schottenheimer: Seau's instincts tremendous

The news of former San Diego Chargers great Junior Seau's apparent suicide stunned virtually everyone who knew him, including former Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer.

Wes Welker hints that the Patriots should give him a new contract for his birthday

Today is Wes Welker’s 31st birthday. If things remain the way they are heading into next season, 2012 should be a good year for Welker. If my worst case scenario from age 31 to 32 was making a cool $9.5 million, I would be one happy man. Like everyone else in the NFL, however, Wes wants long-term financial security. He may wind up holding out of Patriots training camp because of...

Maybe Wes Welker isn’t getting the message…

Wes Welker has been locked into contract negotiations with the New England Patriots virtually since the moment the Patriots walked off the field after their Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants but there has been very little progress. Instead Welker has had the pleasure of watching the Patriots receiving core get a whole lot deeper over the offseason. The latest signing is an ex...

According to a report from TMZ.com, former San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots star, Junior Seau, was found dead of an apparent suicide.  He played 20 seasons in the NFL and most believe will be worth of Hall of Fame consideration at some point.  Certainly from his frustrating play against the Denver Broncos for most of those 20 years would be enough for that. Seau leaves...

With the amount of sports-related tattoos we’ve featured here on LBS alone, it’s tough to come across something original.

Welker joked that the "game ball is probably a more prized item for...

Patriots get defensive in 2012 draft

Watching his defense let two Super Bowls slip away was enough for Bill Belichick. The 2012 draft was set for adding some playmakers and the Patriots followed through. 6 of 7 picks were used on the defensive side of the ball.
