Brady: Casserly report 'certainly not' true

During his weekly appearance with the Dennis & Callahan Show, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said the report by CBS NFL analyst Charley Casserly that the QB had a heated confrontation with Randy Moss prior to the trade of the wide receiver wasn't accurate.

 

"No, certainly not. I don't know why these things come about, but they do. I think it's just a competitive media culture out there now," said Brady. "I love [Moss] as a person, as a player. I don't think I've ever had an altercation with a teammate. I think you command a certain level of respect in the locker room. I think that's the culture of our team. I don't think I've ever seen any players in our locker room fight. That's just not the way it is."

 

Brady later continued, attempting to move on from the conversation regarding Moss, "He's moved on. He played for another team last night. And we've moved on. We had two...

Moss to Brady: 'I appreciate the text'

Randy Moss met with the media following the Vikings' 29-20 loss to the Jets on Monday night. Moss, who caught four passes for 81 yards and a TD in his first game since the trade from the Patriots, was asked about the report from CBS pregame analyst Charley Casserly that he and Tom Brady had a locker-room altercation a week before the trade.

 

"Tom sent me a text today," said Moss. "Tom, I know you're watching, buddy. I appreciate the text. Sorry we didn't bring it home buddy, but I appreciate the text."

Giants advance past Braves, Cox

The celebrated managerial career of Bobby Cox came to an end, driven in part by a Braves defense that was a constant weakness in the Division Series and also by the deference of the Braves skipper to one of his players.

 

Cox and the Braves were eliminated from the postseason by the Giants, who claimed a 3-2 victory in Game 4 to clinch the best-of-five Division Series between the two clubs. Atlanta led, 2-1, entering the top of the seventh inning, on a night when starter Derek Lowe -- pitching on three days' rest -- was largely overpowering.

 

Through 6 1/3 innings, Lowe had allowed just one hit (a Cody Ross solo homer in the sixth) while striking out eight. But with one out in the seventh, he allowed a walk and an infield single, prompting Cox to head to the mound for what looked like a pitching change. But Lowe was adamant about his desire to stay in the game, and Cox left him on the hill. Lowe promptly issued a five-pitch...

Patriots acquire Branch for fourth-rounder

The Patriots have acquired wide receiver Deion Branch for a fourth-round draft pick in 2011. ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the deal. 

Branch, who was a second-round pick of the Patriots in 2002 out of Louisville, spent the first four years of his career with New England and developed a tight bond with quarterback Tom Brady. He had 213 catches in four seasons in New England, and finished Super Bowl XXXIX with 11 catches to take home MVP honors in the Patriots’ win over Philadelphia.

However, Branch and the Patriots became embroiled in a contract dispute, and New England shipped Branch to Seattle for a first-round pick in the 2007 draft. But the recent trade of Randy Moss to the Vikings clearly opened up a slot for Branch to return to the Patriots.

The 31-year-old has 13 catches for 112 yards and a touchdown through four games with the Seahawks this season.

Branch excused from Seahawks practice

Time to crank up those Deion Branch trade rumors again.

The former Patriot and current Seattle wide receiver missed Monday’s practice to take a personal day off, according to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who said the expectation is that Branch will be with the team Wednesday when the Seahawks begin game planning for Sunday’s game against Chicago.

But even an excused absence is enough to raise eyebrows when it comes to the 5-foot-9, 193-pound Branch, who has been the subject of trade rumors that could bring him back to New England sooner rather than later.

Branch, who was a second-round pick of the Patriots in 2002 out of Louisville, spent the first four years of his career with New England and developed a tight bond with quarterback Tom Brady. He had 213 catches in four seasons in New England, and finished Super Bowl XXXIX with 11 catches to take home MVP honors in the Patriots’ win over Philadelphia....
