Welker: 'Contract is out of my mind'

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker reported to camp on Thursday with the rest of the Patriots veterans and insisted there are no hard feelings after he and the team could not work out a long-term contract before the July 16 deadline. Instead, Welker will play the 2012 season with New England for $9 million after signing his franchise tender in the spring.  

"I approach it like any other year, go out there and try and help my team win games," Welker said. "That's the bottom line for me. That's where my focus is, just whatever my role is, just try to help the team win.

"You've got to prove it every year, so there's no year where you don't need to prove it, so it's like any other year. The contract and everything else is out of my mind and it's really just going out there...

McDaniels on Tebow: 'A friend of mine'

FOXBORO -- The man who drafted Tim Tebow late in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft said he's more focused on getting the Patriots offense firing on all cylinders than worrying about facing Tebow a season with the Jets.

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow in the first round -- 25th overall -- as McDaniels was entering his second season as coach of the Broncos. 

"Tim's a good kid and had a good year last year, but we don't play them for a long time right now," McDaniels said at Patriots camp Thursday afternoon. "I wish Tim the best, personally, and he'll be a friend of mine. But our focus is on trying to get better right now, day-by-day, and I'm sure we'll have to worry about him down the road."

McDaniels, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Rams, was released by St. Louis and allowed to join the Patriots offensive coaching staff for the playoffs last season. McDaniels...

Belichick: Welker status like 'every player'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick downplayed the lack of a long-term deal for Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. The team and the star receiver could not reach agreement by the July 16 deadline and as a result, Welker must play the season under the franchise tender he signed in March for $9 million this season. 

"Well, we go through that situation with every player," Belichick said. "Some players we reach agreements with, some players we don't."

Meanwhile, Belichick was asked about the team's sudden and surprising decision to cut 29-year-old former Colts offensive weapon Joseph Addai, after the running back reportedly failed an entry physical this week. 

"It didn't work out," said Belichick, who was asked about the depth of running backs on his roster. 

"We have seven backs on the roster," he said. "If we add one, we'll add one. If we don't, then we'll go with what we've got."...

Belichick: 'No long-term plan' for Waters

FOXBORO -- Veteran offensive lineman Brian Waters -- who did not report to OTAs or June's minicamp -- was not with the Patriots as they opened camp on Thursday outside Gillette Stadium. Coach Bill Belichick told reporters he was not surprised by this development as the 35-year-old spends time away from the team instead of working out in training camp. 

"He's not here," Belichick announced. "It's basically the same as it was in minicamp. We'll just take it day-to-day. There's no long-term plan."

There has been speculation that Waters could be holding out of training camp and reporting closer to the start of the regular season, if he is declared in shape and ready to begin the season. The Patriots signed Waters just before the regular season began in 2011 after he spent 11 seasons with the Chiefs. He had a stellar season for the Patriots at right guard and earned a Pro Bowl berth protecting Tom Brady.

Cop fired for racial slur at Crawford

The police officer who allegedly directed a racial slur at Carl Crawford at a minor league baseball game in Manchester, N.H., on July 5 has been fired, Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella announced Thursday.

John Perreault, 38, was informed in a letter from Mazzarella that he had been terminated. Perreault was a five-year veteran of the Leominster Police Department and had been on paid administrative leave since the allegations surfaced two weeks ago. Perreault, who was off duty at the time of the incident, allegedly called Crawford a "monday," which is known to be a substitute for an offensive word used against African-Americans.

Wrote the mayor wrote in the termination letter sent to Perreault on Thursday:

As Mayor, it is my expectation that City employees of any department will never use racially-motivated statements against anyone, whether on-duty or off-duty. Your actions are so egregious that severe...
