A 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end/outside linebacker who was taken in the sixth round of the 2008 draft out of Buffalo, his best season came in 2009 when he had 43 tackles (38 solo) and seven sacks for the Raiders.

Patriots sign WR Anthony Gonzalez

The Patriots announced Saturday they have signed free agent wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez.

The 27-year-old Gonzalez was drafted by Indianapolis in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft out of Ohio State. In five seasons with the Colts, the 6-foot, 193-pound wide receiver started 12 of 40 games and has 99 career receptions for 1,307 yards and seven touchdowns. He started nine of those games as a rookie and averaged 15.6 yards per reception on 37 catches and scored three touchdowns. In 2008, he played in every game for the Colts, starting two, and recorded career highs with 57 receptions for 664 yards and four touchdowns.

Gonzalez is a native of Cleveland, where he was a two-sport standout at Saint Ignatius High School in football and track. While playing at Ohio State, Gonzalez teamed with two other wide receivers who were drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft (Santonio Holmes and Ted Ginn, Jr.). He was an all-conference...

Lucky turn: B's beat Flyers in shootout

Tim Thomas stopped Danny Briere while David Krejci, Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron all scored in the shootout to lift the Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Flyers in a thrilling St. Patrick's Day matinee at TD Garden. The Bruins gained two points and have 85 on the season, putting them momentarily a point ahead of Ottawa for the Northeast Division lead. 

Showing a sense of urgency from the opening drop, the Bruins came out hard against the Flyers. They recorded the first five shots of the game, including the first goal, a score by Chris Kelly on the rebound of a Benoit Pouliot shot at 6:23 to put the Bruins up, 1-0. It was the first time the Bruins had scored first since March 3 against the Islanders - a span of seven games. 

Thomas, who has struggled of late, then made a pair of momentum-saving stops, turning away Eric Wellwood on a short-handed slap shot after an Andrew Ference giveaway in the neutral zone. Moments later, with Jaromir...

Red Sox release Carlos Silva

The Red Sox announced that they have released right-hander Carlos Silva. Silva, who signed a minor league deal this winter that included the possibility of a $1 million salary if he was added to the big league roster, was diagnosed early in spring training with shoulder inflammation and was unable to throw for the last several weeks.

The 32-year-old had not pitched in the majors since 2010, in no small part due to shoulder woes. However, he showed enough stuff in workouts for the Sox this winter that the team was willing to sign him to a largely risk-free contract, with the idea that he could compete for a spot at the back of the rotation.

However, that scenario never materialized since Silva could not take the mound. The right-hander owns a career 70-70 record and 4.68 ERA.
