Within the past hour, Boston Herald writer Jeff Howe tweeted that the Patriots are "in" on free-agent cornerback Chris Houston, who spent last year in Detroit. Cornerback was a consistent problem last year (one that was to an extent remedied by Aqib Talib) and has been a clear priority for them throughout the off-season. Chris Houston is one of many names linked to the Patriots over the past few weeks. On cornerbacks: Patriots are in on Chris Houston. Derek Cox is scheduling visits, but nothing with Pats at the moment. They called Saturday. — Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) March 12, 2013 It was reported yesterday that Houston planned to test the market in an attempt to maximize his value after being offered a contract by the Lions.

Warren Sapp F-Bombing Belichick Via Open Mic On NFL Network
