Poll: Who should replace Moss?

Randy Moss is gone, and it's not yet clear how the Patriots will replace his production. There are rumors that the Pats are interested in acquiring suspended Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson or former Patriot Deion Branch, now with the Seahawks. Or, they could put the speedy Brandon Tate in Moss' spot, or throw more to rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez. What do you think? Cast your vote in our poll at the It Is What It Is blog.

Padres expect to keep Gonzalez in '11

Padres owner Jeff Moorad told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he expects that his team will retain first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for the 2011 season. The team has a $5.5 million option on the superstar for next year, a salary that will fit within the Padres' projected payroll, which is expected to fall short of $50 million.

 

However, longer term, Moorad suggested that he is not sure whether it is "practical from a financial standpoint" for the club to re-sign Gonzalez to a long-term deal beyond his current contract. Gonzalez, slated to reach free agency after next year, is expected to use the eight-year, $180 million deal signed by Mark Teixeira and the Yankees as a frame of reference for his next deal. That being the case, while the Padres plan to meet with Gonzalez'...

Neal on D&H: 'I trust' Belichick

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal checked in with the Dale & Holley show Friday morning. Asked if he understood why Randy Moss was traded to the Vikings, Neal said he had no insight. "Just going in different direction, I guess," he said. "I don't know why. But whatever Bill [Belichick] says, he's got a reason. I trust him."

 

Neal said he's never attempted to go to the coaches or the front office to find out why certain decisions are made. Said Neal: "I'm kind of like a POW — you don't want to know too much information. That way, you're not lying to people when they ask you. So, I don't know, not that I even care to know. What the situation is, it's none of my business. My business is to go out there and perform, and that's what I intend to do."

 

Neal said he never saw Moss as a disruptive influence. "I don't believe so," he said. "Every player has a different...

Schefter on D&C: No Jackson, maybe Branch

ESPN's Adam Schefter joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning and talked about the Patriots' options following the trade of Randy Moss to the Vikings. Asked if the Patriots are pursuing suspended Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson, Schefter said: "Vincent Jackson is not headed to New England. You look at it and you say it makes sense, but it's just not going to happen."

 

Schefter said the Jackson rumors don't take into account the Patriots' philosophy. "You're going to have to spend roughly $50 million — $9 [million], $10 million a year on a wide receiver that's one strike away from a yearlong suspension," he said. "On top of that, San Diego is adamant that it get back a second- and third-round pick, and New England has done a tremendous job stockpiling picks, I don't think is in the business of looking to unload those picks for a premium-price player when we may have all these picks in a...
