Report: Patriots work out four on Monday

According to ESPN.com, the Patriots worked out two linebackers and two defensive backs on Monday with an eye towards signing a player to fill an opening on the team's practice squad. The report said that the Pats worked out linebackers Mortty Ivy and Darry Beckwith as well as defensive backs Patrick Stoudamire and Thad Turner.

 

Ivy, 24, spent much of the 2009 season on the Carolina Panthers' practice squad before being activated for the season finale. He has also been on the Rams practice squad for part of this season. Beckwith, 23, spent last year on the Chargers' practice squad. He was waived by San Diego at the end of training camp this year.

 

Stoudamire was undrafted out of Western Illinois this year, but was signed by the 49ers during training camp. He was cut in late August.

Belichick on Big Show: Too many mistakes

Patriots coach Bill Belichick joined The Big Show for his regular Monday appearance and the coach broke down the loss to the Browns and talked about preparations for the Steelers. Belichick summed up the loss to Cleveland by saying his team didn’t take advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves. “Those were good plays by them, mistakes by us,” Belichick said. “We had too many of them and in the end when you don’t do things well over a long period of time, you end up with a 20-point loss. That’s what it was and that’s what it should have been.”

 

Belichick also talked about the return of Logan Mankins who made his 2010 debut with the Patriots. “I think Logan had a good week of practice,” the coach said. “He got a lot of reps and played a significant amount in the game [Sunday]. It was his first game I think that will continue to improve. I’m sure he’ll...

Report: Wheatley will sign with Jags

Patriots cornerback Terrence Wheatley will sign a contract with the Jaguars, according to a report from Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. Wheatley, who was a second-round pick of the Patriots in 2008, began his career with New England with great promise, working his way into a starting role midway through his rookie season. But the Colorado product was dogged by injuries over the last two seasons, and had yet to see the field this year because of a foot injury. He was released by the Patriots on Saturday to make room for Logan Mankins on the active roster.

Sources: Suisham, Stover not headed to NE

FOXBORO — With reports indicating that Stephen Gostkowski could miss a couple of weeks because of a thigh injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Browns, the Patriots could be in the market for a kicker.

However, a league source has indicated that Shaun Suisham — who has been linked to New England as a possible replacement for Gostkowski, and had a workout with the Patriots earlier this season — is on the way to Detroit Monday for a workout with the Lions, who also had an injury at the kicker position this past weekend.

In addition, another league source indicates that veteran kicker Matt Stover — who has a longtime relationship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick that dates back to their days together in Cleveland in the early 1990s — has yet to receive a call from the Patriots as of Monday afternoon.

After Gostkowski went down on Sunday, wide receiver Wes Welker was used as the...

Branch promises 'totally different team'

FOXBORO — Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch promises a "totally different team" on Sunday against the Steelers than the one that struggled in an ugly 34-14 loss to the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday.

"It's going to be a different team, I'm going to tell you that right now," Branch said on Monday afternoon. "I'll promise you all that. It started today. We're expecting a totally different team."

In the wake of Sunday's loss, both quarterback Tom Brady and defensive lineman Vince Wilfork blamed a bad week of practice. It was a point echoed by Branch on Monday afternoon.

"It showed up," Branch said of how the bad week of practice extended to the field on Sunday. "Whatever you do in practice is going to show up in the game [and] it showed up in the game. We didn't practice good on Wednesday, Thursday had an OK practice, and then Friday. ... How do you expect to play a...
