According to ESPN.com, five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Ty Law, during a visit on ESPN's Chalk Talk, said that a return to the Patriots represents "a dream I've had for a long time," but the 36-year-old said that hopes for a return are "fading."
“At the end of the day, you can't lose there. You're going back home, a dream I've had for a long time,” Law is quoted as saying. “But that's fading. I've been gone for so long. I was [like] 'OK, that's not going to happen.’”
Law said that he believes he could help a team for 15-20 snaps a game, and that he feels he could join a club mid-season and still be an effective contributor. Even so, he said that he is not actively looking to hook up with a team, suggesting that he is at peace...

When the curtain lifted on Celtics practice Monday afternoon, Shaquille O'Neal was once again out on the floor with the first unit. The reason for that is Jermaine O'Neal has been limited with a hamstring injury that he suffered at the end of Friday's scrimmage. Doc Rivers said Jermaine O'Neal would be out this week. O'Neal preferred it to term it day to day, but understood the need for precaution.
"I’m not really concerned about it," Jermaine O'Neal said. "It’s the timing, being here with the guys getting that chemistry. I was just starting to get comfortable with the philosophies, what Doc wanted. That’s the most frustrating part about it. But I don’t have any doubt in my mind that I’ll be back fairly soon."
Delonte West also left practice with back spasms, but Rivers expects him to be back soon.

NFL Network analyst joined Dale & Holley to talk NFL and the Patriots-Dolphins matchup. "I've been a believer in the Patriots, I'm a believer in Bill Belichick, I think they find a way to win football games one way or another," La Canfora said. "The pressure's on the offense maybe more than ever before.
"They're going to have to score in the 30s a lot of weeks to win. Twenty-eight [points] is not going to be enough some weeks. I'm sure that reality is already setting in. I just have a sense that this is going to be a big night for Tom Brady. I think he's going to put that team on his back and this could be one of those nights where if it gets into a back and forth with Chad Henne and the first one to 500 yards wins, so be it. I think Brady's up to the challenge."
La Canfora said that he doesn't feel there's much separation between the Patriots, Dolphins and Jets in the AFC East. "I think...
