Photo by @MikeReiss After signing with the New England Patriots this offseason, Michael Jenkins is looking forward to helping the younger wide receivers this offseason. Jenkins, who has been considered a quiet-yet-solid locker-room presence in his time with the Falcons and Vikings, said he’s happy to lend a helping hand to rookies Aaron Dobson (2nd round) and Josh Boyce (4th round), among others, just as players such as Warrick Dunn, Peerless Price, Dez White and Tony Gonzalez did for him earlier in his career. Meanwhile, he still feels like has something to offer as a player, and at 6-foot-4 and 214 pounds, he’s a bigger target who projects to a role on the perimeter. If Dobson struggles in the college-to-NFL transition, Jenkins (40 catches, 2 TDs last season) could be counted upon to fill the void. Jenkins, an Ohio State alum doesn’t have a problem catching passes from Tom Brady even though he went to Michigan. “Everybody says ‘how are you going to catch passes from a Michigan guy?’ But I’m looking forward to it,” he cracked. “Tom’s a hard worker, he’s always willing to throw and get better. That’s why he’s one of the best in the league.”   Need NFL Tickets?

Tom Brady Says He Is Partially Motivated By An 85-Year Old Sushi Chef

CBS Boston: Still, past missteps serve only as motivation for Brady, and when he takes the field in September, he’ll be wholly focused on the task at hand. That’s due mostly to Brady’s inner drive, but he said that his determination was aided by — of all things — a documentary on an 85-year-old chef’s quest to improve upon his sushi. “It smacked me in the face as a...

Michael Jenkins doesn't foresee an issue in picking up Patriots offense

The New England Patriots offense is in renovation mode. After the departure of Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd, they needed to heavily invest in giving Tom Brady someone to throw to.

Report: Teams turned off by media attention that follows Tebow, Belichick “hates” him as a player

According to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, it seems as though no NFL teams want Tim Tebow and it might be because of his cult-like following. “He seems like a great guy to have on a team, and I’d be tempted to bring him in as our backup,” one NFC head coach told me Wednesday. “But it’s just not worth dealing with all the stuff that comes with it.” “You don’t want...
