Pats announce signings of Cole, Koutouvides

The Patriots announced Wednesday that they have re-signed cornerback Marquice Cole and linebacker Niko Koutouvides, the latter of which had been previously reported. Here’s a portion of the press release issued by the team on the moves:

Cole, 29, is a veteran of four NFL seasons with the Jets (2009-11) and the Patriots (2012). The 5-10, 192-pounder joined New England as a free agent on March 19. He played in 14 games with one start last season and finished with 12 total tackles, one interception, three passes defensed and seven special teams tackles. He played in both postseason games and added four defensive tackles and four special teams tackles.

Koutouvides, 31, went to training camp with New England last summer but was released on Aug....

Celtics lock up White; Randolph next?

The Celtics have signed D.J. White for the remainder of the season.

White averaged 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in just 6.8 minutes over four appearances since originally arriving in Boston from China on Feb. 28. The two sides reached a deal before the C’s had to part ways with the 6-foot-9, 250-pound big man upon completing the maximum of two 10-day contracts.

The Celtics announced “a multi-year contract” with White, and while terms of the deal were not disclosed, it’s likely the team owns an option for the 2013-14 season — much like the contract Terrence Williams signed earlier this month.

The next domino to fall should be Shavlik Randolph, whose second 10-day contract expires on Thursday. Randolph made the trip to New Orleans for the opener of the C’s three-...

LeBron: 'Glad' dunk came against Terry

By now, you’ve seen LeBron Jamesmonster dunk over Jason Terry that will probably go up against DeAndre Jordan‘s posterization of Brandon Knight for the NBA’s Dunk of the Year. Well, apparently so has LeBron.

“I’ve had a chance to [review] it, and it was one of my better ones,” James told ESPN.com two days after Miami’s 105-103 victory in Boston. “The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter. Because we all know J.T. and he talks too much...

NFL votes to abolish tuck rule

The NFL voted to abolish the tuck rule on Wednesday at the league meetings, with the clubs voting 29-1 to do away with the rule that helped play a role in the Patriots’ amazing run to the Super Bowl at the end of the 2001 season.

Twenty-nine teams voted to eliminate the rule. Only Pittsburgh voted to keep it on the books with the Patriots and Redskins abstaining. The change means that when a quarterback tries to bring the ball back to his body after deciding not to throw and loses the handle, it will be a fumble and not an incomplete pass. If a passer loses control while the ball is going forward, it’s still incomplete.

New England benefited from the tuck rule in the 2001 divisional playoffs against the Raiders when a late fumble call was overturned and called an incomplete pass. That decision helped spur a late comeback by the Patriots, who would go on to win Super Bowl XXXVI later that year.

Remy on D&C: 'I just don't mail games in'

NESN analyst Jerry Remy joined Dennis & Callahan Wednesday to discuss the state of the Red Sox as spring training winds down, as well as address an article D&C co-host Kirk Minihane wrote last year that criticized Remy’s performance in the booth.

Remy said he wanted to talk to Minihane about the article, which praised some aspects of Remy’s work but noted he isn’t as “sharp” as he once was and that “it often feels like Remy is mailing it in.”

“You wrote something like I mail my games in, and I didn’t take well to that, only because I...
