Westhoff: Pats also form special teams wall

The same day that the Jets suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi indefinitely after the team got “new information” that Alosi “instructed” five players to stand in a wall before he tripped a Dolphins player on Sunday, New York special teams coach Mike Westhoff hinted that the Patriots engage in many of the same tactics.

Appearing on the Waddle & Silvy Show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago, Westhoff said “a number of teams do it,” including “a pretty good team up north.”

Asked by one of the hosts if he was talking about the Patriots, Westhoff added, “Well, if you watch them, their defense when the opponents’ punt team is out there ...  they’re up there pretty close to the line so it looks like they are trying to do it. Now are they doing anything illegal? Are they tripping anybody, heck no. I’m not saying that. That’s not the point...

Source: Sox offered Guerrier two years

As first reported by Erik Boland of Newsday (via twitter), reliever Matt Guerrier has agreed to a three-year deal with the Dodgers. One source with knowledge of the negotiations said that the deal was not done as of Wednesday morning, but that the Dodgers and the pitcher are working in that direction.

 

The right-hander had been offered a two-year contract with a vesting option for a third year by the Red Sox, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations, but Guerrier apparently opted to go for the longer guarantee. Boland reports that the Yankees were also among the teams pursuing the right-hander.

 

Guerrier was one of the most consistent and durable pitchers on the relief market this year, having posted ERAs of 3.40 or better in five of his last six seasons. He had also made 73 or more appearances in the last four seasons with the Twins. Despite a relatively low strikeout rate (5.9 per nine innings in his...

Woodson on Brady: 'He did steal my ring'

FOXBORO -- The player who hit Tom Brady - forcing the ball loose during the legendary "Tuck Rule" game in the 2001 AFC Divisional Playoff - believes the Patriots quarterback "stole" his chance at a Super Bowl ring. Charles Woodson will be returning to Foxboro Sunday night for just the second time since that classic game and for the first time as a member of the Green Bay Packers. 

 

"Yeah, he did steal my ring and I'm still waiting around to get mine," Packers defensive back Charles Woodson said tongue-in-cheek. "In college he's a guy that worked hard. You knew he'd be good but who knew he'd be where he is now?"

 

Woodson was Brady's teammate when the two were at the University of Michigan in the late 90s. Woodson played for Oakland when the Raiders visited old Foxboro Stadium during a snow storm in Jan. 2002 and appeared to be on the brink of making the AFC Championship before...
