Report: Patriots to release Dennard

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Patriots are releasing cornerback Alfonzo Dennard.

After playing 10 and 13 games the first two years of his career respectively, the 2012 seventh round pick played in just six games last year before being played on injured reserve at the end of the year. He appeared to lose the confidence of the coaching staff.

Dennard had off field issues as well. He was arrested for felony assault on a police officer in 2013 and was arrested on suspicion of DUI just a few months later. He served 35 days in jail last March.

His cap hit for 2015 was set to be just over $1.5 million.

By: WEEI

Richard Davey, the chief executive of Boston 2014 joined Dennis & Callahan in studio Tuesday morning to discuss the status of the bid and what is to come. To hear the interview, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

“We have to convince people we’re not going to use tax payer dollar for venues and operations,” said Davey. “Those are right questions, other governments do that. We haven’t produced a detailed plan yet. In the next couple months [we will] so you guys can give us feedback and we’re confident we can do...

Hanley's status still uncertain after initial tests

The Red Sox are still left crossing their fingers.

While initial tests on Hanley Ramirez‘s left shoulder didn’t reveal any sort of situation that would necessitate an immediate trip to the 15-day disabled list, Red Sox manager John Farrell admitted, “The coming days will indicate more.”

“He’€™s day-to-day right now,” Farrell said. “Obviously the sprain to the left shoulder on the collision. We’€™re hopeful over the next couple days there’€™s some improvement. There’€™s no clear-cut DL at this point. So he’€™s day-to-day.”

Buchholz settles down, but bats silenced in loss

Things just aren’t going the Red Sox‘ way right now.

On a night where Clay Buchholz overcame a tough first two innings where he allowed four runs, the right-hander settled down going 6 1/3 innings and allowing five runs, but the Red Sox‘ bats couldn’t come through as they fell to the Rays 5-1.

It was the second straight series opening loss for the team, who opened the year winning seven straight. The result wasn’t even the worst news of the night, as Hanley Ramirez left the game in the first inning after running into the wall with what the team called a left shoulder sprain.

With two outs in the top...
