FOXBORO — In a continuation of what he told Salk & Holley on WEEI Monday afternoon, Bill Belichick said Tuesday he’s not ready to confirm whether Tim Tebow has a spot guaranteed on the Patriots’ 53-man roster when the season starts Sept. 8 in Buffalo.

FOXBORO — According to his agent, former South Florida tight end Evan Landi has signed with the Patriots. The rookie was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Buccaneers in April before being waived on June 4.

Landi stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 240 pounds and appeared in nine games in his senior season at South Florida. He started four games and appeared at tight end and on special teams.

Bill Belichick joined Salk and Holley Monday and elaborated on Tim Tebow‘s standing with the Patriots. Tebow was signed in the offseason and is using the preseason to try to stick on the roster as a third quarterback.

FOXBORO — To absolutely no one’s surprise, Bill Belichick wasn’t about to give Cary Williams the satisfaction of a verbal sparring match as the Patriots get ready for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week at Gillette Stadium.

Over the weekend, the Eagles defensive back accused Belichick’s Patriots of practicing “dirty” last week in the team’s joint practices before the season opener Friday night.

Belichick’s response?

“We’ve moved on,” Belichick said. “We’re coming to Tampa.”

The Patriots have signed cornerback LeQuan Lewis and released rookie free agent tight end Brandon Ford.

Sebastian Vollmer joined Mut & Merloni Monday morning, and the Patriots offensive tackle, three days removed from the Patriots’ preseason-opening win over the Eagles, echoed a sentiment expressed by Tom Brady a few hours prior

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in his weekly interview on the Dennis & Callahan show, said that the building of chemistry in New England’s offense remains a work-in-progress. He noted that the team has only completed about 25 practices, leaving plenty of room for improvement.

Zach Sudfeld has given the Patriots a rather pleasant problem.

Tim Tebow is many things. Among them, a winner, albeit one who hasn't won in a while. He's a polarizing personality on a team that won't allow him to say too much. And, depending on your point of view, he is the most interesting, the worst, or the most misunderstood quarterback on the planet.



Eagles defensive back Cary Williams said he purposefully instigated a fight with Patriots wide recevier Aaron Dobson during the joint practices last Tuesday because he was upset about the way New England was going about its business, adding things would have been handled differently if he was still in Baltimore playing with the Ravens.
