CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning. Esiason said he believes the accuracy of the report by fellow analyst Charley Casserly about a Tom Brady-Randy Moss locker room argument.

 

On Sunday’s “Football Night in America,” Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC analyst Rodney Harrison both directly refuted the report that there was an altercation between Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss.

The report in question, delivered by former NFL GM and current CBS analyst Charley Casserly, detailed an incident between the two in the days before Moss was traded to the Vikings.

Former NFL GM and current CBS pregame analyst Charley Casserly reported Sunday that Tom Brady and Randy Moss "had to be separated" in the locker room following an altercation a week before the wideout was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings.

 

In an interview with Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network, Patriots coach Bill Belichick once again gave his thoughts on the trade that sent Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings. Lombardi asked Belichick why he felt he needed to deal the wide receiver during the regular season.

Terrell Owens thinks the Patriots did Randy Moss wrong.

The Cincinnati wide receiver told the Associated Press that New England’s decision to trade Moss to Minnesota should be a signal to every other player around the league that they are “expendable.”

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports joined the Dale & Holley show Friday for his weekly update on the NFL. King said he had no inside scoop on the Randy Moss situation, but he knows enough to draw some conclusions.

 

FOXBORO — Running back Fred Taylor, cornerback Terrence Wheatley, offensive lineman Nick Kaczur and defensive lineman Mike Wright were all missing from the start of Patriots practice on Friday outside of Gillette Stadium. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Randy Moss is gone, and it's not yet clear how the Patriots will replace his production. There are rumors that the Pats are interested in acquiring suspended Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson or former Patriot Deion Branch, now with the Seahawks. Or, they could put the speedy Brandon Tate in Moss' spot, or throw more to rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez. What do you think? Cast your vote in our poll at the It Is What It Is blog.

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal checked in with the Dale & Holley show Friday morning. Asked if he understood why Randy Moss was traded to the Vikings, Neal said he had no insight. "Just going in different direction, I guess," he said. "I don't know why. But whatever Bill [Belichick] says, he's got a reason. I trust him."
