You can't fault Philip Rivers' competitive nature, even as the team around him looks like it's falling apart. The San Diego Chargers missed the playoffs last season and conceded the AFC West crown to the Tim Tebow led Denver Broncos. Now Rivers would love to see the Broncos bring Peyton Manning aboard. Not because he has a personal vendetta against the guy. It's...
While it may not be the big splash Patriots fans were hoping for, Bill Belichick appears to have found a new starting safety in six-year veteran Steve Gregory.
The former Charger brings starting experience, versatility and athleticism to a cripplingly-bad group of safeties from 2011.
In 15 games, Gregory recorded 67 tackles and a pick. His best season came in 2009 when he posted...
The Newest Patriot - Jonathan Fanene - DL (by PatriotsRazorDotCom)
