The Patriots have reportedly looked into acquiring disgruntled San Diego wide receiver Vincent Jackson, according to CSNNE.com, with New England possibly offering offensive lineman Logan Mankins in return. The two players are in similar situations — both of whom are restricted free agents in the fifth season in the league who are sitting out rather than playing for their tender offers.

PRAGUE -- The Bruins and center Patrice Bergeron have agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $15 million, the team announced late Friday morning. The deal will carry an annual cap hit of $5 million, making him tied with Tim Thomas for the team's highest cap hit in the 2011-12 season (captain Zdeno Chara remains unsigned following the coming season). RDS was the first to report the agreement.
Bergeron was set to become a free agent at season's end, and after a very impressive preseason, the Bruins avoid the risk of seeing the 25-year-old center put together a career year and leave via free agency. Chara now becomes the team's top priority regarding contracts, as he is in the final year of a five-year, $37.5 million deal signed back in 2006.
Bergeron's career high for points in a season is 73, which he recorded in 2005-06, his second NHL season. In 73 games last season, Bergeron picked up 52 points before...
One night after likely 2010 National League Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay tossed a no-hitter for the Phillies, two-time reigning NL Cy Young champion Tim Lincecum proved nearly as dominant in leading the Giants to a 1-0 victory over the Braves in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.
Lincecum, in his first career playoff start, allowed a double to the first batter of the game, Omar Infante. From there, however, the Braves had no chance against him, allowing just one more hit (a Brian McCann double in the seventh inning) while striking out 14 and walking one in his complete game shutout. Between the first and second innings, he struck out five consecutive Atlanta hitters in one stretch.
Lincecum threw 119 pitches, 75 strikes. The right-hander set a Giants playoff record for the most strikeouts in a game, and he recorded the most strikeouts by a pitcher in a postseason start since Roger Clemens notched 15...
According to ESPN.com, the Vikings and Randy Moss restructured the final year of the wide receiver's contract with a written guarantee that he will not be franchised following this season. Moss is in the final year of a three-year, $27 million deal he signed with the Patriots after the 2007 season.
With free agency pending for the 33-year-old, according to the report, the Vikings did not add any money to Moss' deal. However, the team did agree not to put a franchise or transition tag on the player they selected with their first-round pick in 1998.

Led by Delonte West and Glen Davis, the self-proclaimed Celtics “bench mob” led a second-quarter surge that erased a nine-point deficit and put Boston up for good in a 96-92 victory against the Nets in the second game of the preseason.
In a late battle of both teams’ third units, New Jersey actually tied the score, 90-90, but Nate Robinson made 3-of-4 free throws down the stretch to hold on for the win. Davis scored a team-high 20 points, while West finished with 12 points -- all in the second quarter -- along with six rebounds and three assists. Robinson (17) and Paul Pierce (15) also reached double digits in scoring.
Brook Lopez finished with a game-high 23 points for New Jersey.
