Neal on D&H: Brady no distraction

Patriots lineman Stephen Neal joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning as the team prepares for Sunday's season-opener against the Bengals. Neal said Tom Brady's car accident Thursday morning isn't a problem for the Patriots. "I didn't think too much of it," Neal said. "We just started our preparation for the Bengals. We've got a tough task at hand. … I don't think it was a distraction at all."

 

Asked about the Bengals, Neal said the Patriots linemen will have their hands full. "They have a really good defensive line and they'll all play everywhere," he said. "They all have different skill sets. They're all physical and tough. Some of them are a little bigger, more powerful. Some of them are a little quicker. Then you've got the linebackers. They're also great. They're young, fast, athletic. They're real good."

 

Neal considered retirement in the offseason before re-...

Schefter on Mankins: 'It's ugly'

ESPN's Adam Schefter joined Dennis & Callahan Friday morning to talk about all the contract issues surrounding the Patriots, and he is not optimistic about the chances of Logan Mankins playing for the Pats this season. "I don't like the way this is going," Schefter said. "I don't like the way it has gone. You never know. Something could happen to change the tenor of the talks and the direction of the negotiation, but right now it's ugly. Right now, I'd say no. I don't think he's playing there. My guess today is, I don't like the way this is going. Tomorrow, something could change."

 

As for Tom Brady's new contract (see the breakdown here), "I personally thought the number might have come in a little higher, but in all honesty, what's the difference between $18 [million] and $20 million?"...

Mayo on D&C: Keep an eye on McCourty

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about team news heading into Sunday's season-opener vs. the Bengals. Mayo said he isn't concerned about the team's young players. "I think we have some guys that are willing to learn, that are willing to get better, that aren't stuck in their ways," he said. "Sometimes when you have older players, they get stuck in their ways, they think they know it all. These guys are very coachable. We're getting better each and every day."

 

Asked to name a player that will be a pleasant surprise this weekend, Mayo went with rookie cornerback Devin McCourty. "McCourty, he's a studious guy," Mayo said. "He has a big task on his hands this weekend. Any side that he lines up on, those guys have great wide receivers. Hopefully, he shows up Sunday and makes a lot of plays."

 

Mayo said he wasn't concerned...
