Patriots sign WR, roster now has 90 players

The Patriots’ roster was at 89 entering Monday, the first day of OTAs, and at the end of the day the roster is full at 90.

New England signed wide receiver DeAndrew White. White spent last season on practice squad after being signed on Sept. 14.

The 25-year-old was originally signed by the 49ers as a rookie free agent out of Alabama in 2015. The 6-foot, 192-pounder, made the 49ers’ 53-man roster as a rookie and played in four games, finishing with two receptions for 18 yards.

White will battle with Devin Lucien and Austin Carr for potentially a spot on this year’s practice squad.

C's celebrated win with FaceTime call to Isaiah

CLEVELAND — Isaiah Thomas may be gone, but he’s not forgotten.

In the moments after the Celtics completed a remarkable comeback victory over the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday night, forward Kelly Olynyk decided to get Thomas on a FaceTime connection to celebrate.

Thomas is out for the playoffs with a hip injury and did not accompany the team to Cleveland, but he was with them in spirit, and then with them via video connection in the victorious locker room, as his teammates relayed after Monday’s practice.

“He was just happy. He was happy. He was excited,” said Avery Bradley, whose buzzer-beating 3-pointer gave the C’s the 111-108 win. “He sent everybody a text, and then Kelly just called him, or he might have been calling Kelly right after the game, so it was nice to see a smile on his face. I just wish he was here.”

Report: C's Yabusele out for summer league
By: WEEI

Forward Guerschon Yabusele, who the Celtics selected No. 16 overall in the 2016 draft, will not play summer league ball this offseason following foot surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of both his feet, according to ESPN’s Chris Forsberg.

Following last year’s draft, the 6-foot-8, 265-pound power forward spent his first professional season stashed away in China, playing for the Shanghai Dongfang. While abroad he averaged an impressive 20.8 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.

The frenchman went on to finish his season back in the States, with the Celtics’ D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. In five games coming off the bench, he averaged 12.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and two assists, while shooting 49 percent from the field. ...

Clayborn elected into Patriots Hall of Fame

On Monday, the Patriots announced former cornerback Raymond Clayborn has been elected into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

Clayborn beat out Richard Seymour and Mike Vrabel following being nominated by a committee and then winning an online vote by fans.

He had been nominated four straight years.

The cornerback was a three-time Pro Bowl player (1983, 1985, 1986) during his 13-year Patriots career that extended from 1977 through 1989. He set a franchise record with 36 career interceptions, a record which Ty Law tied in 2004. His 555 interception return yards rank second in franchise history to Law’s 583 return yards.

Clayborn also returned 57 kickoffs for 1,538 yards and three touchdowns. He is one of just 20 NFL players since the 1970 merger to finish a season with a better than 30-yard average on kickoff returns (min. 20 returns) and is...

Ortiz on D&HK: Yanks leaked '03 failed drug test

David Ortiz still seems bitter about his failed drug test getting leaked to the New York Times eight years ago.

In 2009, the Times identified Ortiz as one of 104 players who tested positive for performance enhancing-drugs during a preliminary round of testing in Spring Training 2003. The results were supposed to remain anonymous, but they were never destroyed.

Since then, Ortiz has been a crusade to dispute the results. He claims to not know what he tested positive for, saying nobody has helped him identify the substance. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred backed up those questions during a visit to Fenway Park last October, when he said it’s “...
