Found December 15, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
The Patriots made another roster move today, releasing special teamer Malcolm Williams. The seventh-round draft choice was promoted for the first time on Sunday, playing on special teams vs the Redskins. That he was released today is interesting. My guess is that he’ll end up back on the practice squad, while the team promotes a safety to take Patrick Chung’s place on Sunday. Chung has missed practice the last two days and been spotted in a walking boot. Maybe it’s Ross Ventrone? Or maybe Sterling Moore? Anyway, here is the release: (more…)

Video of the day: Patriots LB Dane Fletcher talked about his return to the field

For six weeks, Patriots LB Dane Fletcher sat and watched. While undergoing  a few surgeries on this thumb, he was biding his time and waiting. He returned against the Redskins, made seven tackles, and looked pretty stout. In the locker room on Monday, before the talk turned to the Broncos, Fletcher talked about it.

Photochop Winners: Tom Brady Is Upset With Rex Ryan, Kanye West, Sold-Out Ugg Store

Tom Brady is a pretty unflappable guy. After four Super Bowl appearances (three rings) and countless game-winning drives, Brady is used to pressure and doesn't get rattled or lose his cool much. That's why seeing him look upset in a photo taken during a recent practice was so surprising. Earlier this week, we asked readers to submit their own altered photos explaining why...
