FOXBORO -- Asked whether he would do what Jets coach Rex Ryan did and travel to Florida to help get star cornerback Darrelle Revis on the team, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday he wasn't paying attention. 

 

"Yeah, I'm not really familiar with all that," Belichick said. "I don't know what everybody else does. I'm just going to coach the team, do what's best for our team, that's what I'm going to do."

 

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday to talk about Sunday's season-opener against the Bengals. Meriweather said he's looking forward to going up against the duo of Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. "Any time you get a chance to play against two of the elite receivers ever to play the game, you get excited," he said.

 

A look at the winners and losers in a crazy cutdown weekend for the Patriots:

WINNERS



According to multiple reports, the Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis have agreed to a seven-year contract extension. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the numbers on the the deal are "likely to be a team, but not NFL record." Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting the deal has $32 million guaranteed and can be voided to four years and $46 million.

 

Jason Day finished with a 5-under 66 Sunday, which allowed him to hold a one-stroke lead over Brandt Snedeker heading into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Luke Donald is in third place, two shots off the pace. Tiger Woods could only manage one birdie over the last 11 holes on Sunday and shot a 2-under 69, leaving him tied for 23rd and 10 shots out of the lead. That could set the stage for either Phil Mickelson or Steve Stricker to end Woods' run as the No. 1 ranked player in the world.

The Patriots announced Sunday afternoon they have released linebacker Tyrone McKenzie. In addition, they verified the acquisitions of Jarrad Page and linebacker Tracy White in separate trades, as well as the fact they were awarded tackle Steve Maneri off waivers from Houston.

Bill Belichick promised there would be a lot of moving parts, and he wasn’t wrong.



The Patriots just announced on their Twitter feed they have cut the following players: WR Sam Aiken, LB Eric Alexander, S Sergio Brown, LB Derrick Burgess, OL George Bussey, TE Carson Butler, RB Thomas Clayton, WR Buddy Farnham, WR Darnell Jenkins, OL Ted Larsen, TE Rob Myers, OL Rich Ohrnberger, WR Rod Owens, QB Zac Robinson, RB Chris Taylor, DB Ross Ventrone, OL Thomas Welch, LB Thomas Williams, CB DeAngelo Willingham and LB Pierre Woods. In addition, safety Brandon McGowan has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Defensive back Sergio Brown and wide receiver/special teams ace Sam Aiken will be released by the Patriots on Saturday, WEEI.com has learned. While Brown was a long-shot to make the roster — and still has practice-squad eligibility — the release of Aiken does comes as a mild surprise. Last year's special teams captain (he served as the punt protector), the 29-year-old Aiken caught 20 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns last year.
