The Patriots have signed free agent safety Steve Gregory to a three-year contract, according to his agent David Canter. Gregory is a 29-year-old undrafted free agent out of Syracuse who has spent six years in the NFL, all with the Chargers.

Gregory had 67 tackles and one interception in 2011.

OAKLAND -- With their asking price high, the Celtics let the trade deadline pass without making a move. Yahoo! reported early on Thursday that the asking price for Ray Allen remained a first round pick and a young player and that was too much for a veteran in the final year of his contract.
With Chris Wilcox out for the season, the next step for Danny Ainge is acquiring a big man to fill out depth on the front line behind Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass and Greg Stiemsma. The Celtics will have to make room on the roster with Jermaine O'Neal a prime candidate to be waived or bought out.

Bobby Valentine told reporters prior to the Red Sox' spring training game today against the Cardinals that he expects Carl Crawford will begin hitting in the coming days.
"He's going to be hitting soon," the Sox manager said. "I don't know when that is, but soon."
Crawford experienced a setback in his return from a surgically-repaired left wrist just under two weeks ago, having to curtail baseball activities for approximately a week after the outfielder experienced inflammation in the area.
But, starting last week, Crawford returned to the field in some capacities, throwing, hitting off a tee, and even standing in during pitchers' bullpen session in an effort to help get his timing down.
"THere are guys who need less reps, I don't think Carl's one of them. Just from the information I gather, I don't think he's a less-rep guy," Valentine said of Crawford. "One of our challenges is to control his...
Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters in Florida Thursday that forward Rich Peverley, who has been out since Feb. 15 with an MCL sprain, returned to the ice Wednesday in Boston for the first time since suffering his injury.
Peverley was expected to miss 4-6 weeks at the time of the injury. In 49 games this season, he has nine goals and 29 assists for 38 points.
Julien also said that Tim Thomas will be the starting goaltender Thursday vs. the Panthers. Thomas has played in 10 consecutive games, but has played 20 minutes or less in each of the last two Bruins contests.
After the Senators lost in a shootout to the Canadiens Wednesday, the Bruins' lead over Ottawa in the Northeast division is currently one point.
