Report: Pats won't sign Plaxico Burress

The Patriots will not be following up a workout with Plaxico Burress with a contract offer, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Schefter was the first to report Sunday that the controversial wide receiver, who turned 35 on Sunday, was in Foxboro for a workout and a physical with the team. But after a workout, Schefter says the team has decided to move on. 

On the field, Burress is most noted for his game-winning catch with 36 seconds remaining in Super Bowl XLII as a member of the Giants, a catch that ended the dreams of New England's 19-0 season in 2007. Off the field, Burress was sent to prison for nearly two years after being convicted of two felony counts of gun possession when his loaded glock went off in a New York City nightclub in Nov. 2008. The shot went into his leg and no others were injured. 

In July 2011, Burress agreed to a one-year contract worth approximately $3.017 million guaranteed with the...

Report: Shoppach cleared waivers

According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox placed catcher Kelly Shoppach on trade waivers last Friday and the 32-year-old cleared waivers on Monday. Players who clear trade waivers in August can be dealt to any team. Shoppach has been productive at the plate (.250 with a .327 OBP, .471 slugging mark and .798 OPS -- all above-average marks for big league catchers) while receiving strong marks for his defense and work with the pitching staff. As such, if the Red Sox either determine that they are out of contention (as they did in 2006, when they dealt David Wells for George Kottaras on Aug. 31) or if they want to get more playing time for Ryan Lavarnway, the team likely would find a market for Shoppach, who will be a free agent after the season.

The Globe report said that catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has not been put on...

Mashup: LeBron comes full circle

The LeBron James has figured it out narrative is a story you've been reading about since the Heat made easy work of the Thunder in five measly games during the NBA finals. With another rousing performance during the Olympics, James has restarted the conversation just as it cooled off. Frankly, he probably deserves the praise as much as he deserved the post-Decision scorn, meaning it's overstated but has merit as well. 

The truth is James has been the greatest in the game for a few years, but now that he's a winner, fans and media can finally embrace him. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski has a great piece showing just how far LeBron has matured.

Writes Wojnarowski:

Before they ever finalized a roster to chase a gold medal in Beijing, USA Basketball officials delivered an unmistakable ultimatum to LeBron James: Unless you grow up, treat people with respect, and commit to taking this seriously, we'll leave you home for the...

Brady on D&C: 'No idea' about Burress

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning as part of the first WEEI Patriots Monday of the 2012 season and talked about the variety of options he has on offense.

"There's quite a bit of veteran depth at the receiver position and kind of youth depth at the running back position, and at the tight end position two guys who are returning who were very productive for us last year. So, there's definitely places to throw the ball," Brady said. "It's just a matter of how things really come together here in the next four weeks before the season starts. We have quite a bit of practices, we've got three preseason games. Based on last week's performance [against the Saints] and through training camp, we still have quite a bit of work to do. So, that's why we're going out there today to practice."

Dolphins release Chad Johnson

Less than 24 hours after he was arrested in an alleged domestic dispute with his wife, Chad Johnson has been released by the Dolphins. The news was first reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

The Dolphins issued a one-sentence press release Sunday night simply stating, "The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson, the team announced today."

On Saturday night, Johnson was arrested after he allegedly head-butted his wife, Evelyn, when she became upset after reportedly finding a receipt for the purchase of condoms in his car. 

The Patriots released the receiver -- then named Chad Ochocinco -- after a disappointing one-year stay in which he totaled 15 receptions for 276 yards and one touchdown. There had been speculation that the Dolphins brought him into camp to be an attraction for HBO's "Hard Knocks," which this season features in the AFC East rival of the Patriots.
