Just because Jerod Mayo’s season on the field is done doesn’t mean he’s not still doing good off the field. Here’s a pic from yesterday, with Jerod delivering more than 1,000 inspirational messages through EMD Serono's Notes of Hope Program at the American Cancer Society’s AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center of Boston. It’s so refreshing to see all the good that the Patriots do off the field in the community. Every Tuesday they’re out giving their time to people who need it. Great stuff from them all, especially Mayo, who could’ve disappeared into the shadows after his injury, but has kept up his role as a leader both on and off the field.

Aaron Hernandez is doodling naked women in jail

FOXBORO, Mass. — With so many injuries plaguing the defense, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are trying to avoid any more catastrophic losses.
