Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis sounded off on the New York Jets Thursday, suggesting the team boasts too much for a team with no recent hardware. In speaking with the Baltimore and New York media prior to Monday night's season-opener against Rex Ryan's squad, Lewis said there are teams they should be more worried about.

 

Chris Price reports from Foxboro that wide receivers Julian Edelman and Randy Moss and running back Laurence Maroney all returned to practice after going absent for the start of Wednesday’s practice session. Three players were not in attendance: cornerback Terrence Wheatley, offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka and offensive lineman Nick Kaczur were not on the field for the start of practice, which was held on the lower field behind Gillette Stadium and was in full pads.

 

FOXBORO — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady looked to be moving without an issue at practice today, hours after he was involved in a Thursday morning car crash near his Back Bay home.

The New England quarterback, who did not speak with the media during locker room availability, went through the usual routine of stretching and drills during the 10-15 minutes of practice the media is allowed to observe. He was moving well and participated in all the drills.

Via their Twitter account, the Patriots just released the following statement: "Caught up with Brady briefly between meetings. Reports that he's OK." That statement is their second of the day regarding the car accident Brady was involved in this morning, with the first coming at 9:21 and reading: "Patriots QB Tom Brady was in a car accident this morning. He was not hospitalized and is expected at Gillette Stadium today."

 

Speaking on his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, CBS NFL analyst Boomer Esiason said that if the terms of Tom Brady's impending contract extension are accurate he believes it is, "kind of embarrassing," suggesting that the rest of the NFL players are looking to the Patriots quarterback to get a deal befitting perhaps the best player in the league. "I hope Tom gets it done, and I hope he is compensated for who he is," Esiason said.

Sources have told the Dennis & Callahan Show that Tom Brady was involved in a car accident near his home at the corner of Commonwealth and Gloucester in Boston Thursday morning.

Season finale of "Hard Knocks" and HBO is promising a twist ending. As a TV junkie I've been trying to figure out what it is. My best guess?
