It turns out boisterous Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs did have a fond place in his heart for Tom Brady after all - or at least his teammates got through to him. One week after he told Yahoo's Michael Silver that he voted for Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Ryan Fitzpatrick - and not Brady - on his player's Pro Bowl ballot, Suggs admitted the Ravens linebacker corps convinced him voting Brady was the right thing to do.
“Let’s go ahead and let the cat out of the bag: We did vote for him,” Suggs told the Baltimore Sun Wednesday. “We’ve got quarrels and our beefs but you got to respect play. It was kind of decided as a unit who we vote for. We did vote for him.”
FOXBORO -- The Patriots confirmed Wednesday they have re-signed former Brown University star receiver Buddy Farnham. It's the third time the Patriots have brought the Andover, Mass. native back to the team.
Farnham was named the 2009 Ivy League and New England Player of the Year as a senior at Brown. He finished the 2009 season with 1,003 receiving yards and 74 receptions. Farnham finished his college career with 229 receptions, sixth in the Ivy League history, while his 2,895 career yards are seventh in Ivy League history.
Farnham was signed as a rookie free agent in the summer and reported to training camp and was one of the final cuts at the end of the preseason. He fills the spot vacated on the practice squad when cornerback Tony Carter was promoted to the active roster Dec. 18.

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick did not provide any clues as to how much Tom Brady and other starters on offense and defense would play this weekend in a game that will have no impact on their position for the upcoming playoffs.
"I think we just approach each for what it is, don't really worry about the standings and the records and all that, just try to get ready and then go out and compete on Sunday," Belichick said.
The Patriots head into the regular season finale with a 13-2 record, having clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs and home field advantage throughout while the Dolphins - eliminated on Dec. 19 in a home loss to the Bills - are just trying to finish with a .500 record, entering the game with a 7-8 mark. The Patriots will try to finish with a perfect regular season home record for the second straight season.
The Patriots are practicing Wednesday in the Dana Farber...
FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick was happy for the six Patriots selected to the AFC Pro Bowl squad, announced on Tuesday night. But he made it clear Wednesday that it's hardly one of the main goals that are ahead of the team.
Quarterback Tom Brady and left guard Logan Mankins were selected to the Pro Bowl team on the offensive side and both were named starters. On the defense, nose tackle Vince Wilfork was selected as a starter, while linebacker Jerod Mayo and defensive backs Devin McCourty and Brandon Meriweather were taken as reserves for the game on Jan. 30 in Hawaii.
"I'm happy for those players," Belichick said. "I think they've all had good seasons. I think we have a lot of other players on our team who have had good seasons. I appreciate what everybody does but I think we're all here for the team goal. So, what ever other individual accolades, they're nice but I think they're secondary."...
