Mayock: Pats need defense, receiver help
By: DJ Bean

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock held a conference call with reporters Wednesday afternoon. The Patriots are picking 28th and 31st overall in the first round and have two picks in the second round, and Mayock said they would be wise to focus on defense early.

"They have two picks in the first round -- what a surprise," Mayock said. "Bill [Belichick] is a master at letting the board come to him, so I don't even think Bill will know really until that last week prior to the draft what specific players he's interested in. The way I look at it is it's got to be all about defense. You're sitting there with two picks, with the ability to move up, down or stay at 27 and 31. In a league where it's a pass-first league, I was kind of happy to see the return of defense in the playoffs and the Super Bowl, but let's be honest about it -- there are a lot of teams, including the Patriots, that want a track meet every week, which means you have to...

Haynesworth released by Buccaneers

Former Patriots defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was released by the Buccaneers on Wednesday.

"I appreciate Albert playing for us after some key injuries this past season," Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said in a press release. "He was very professional and we now wish him all the best as he moves forward."

Tampa Bay claimed Haynesworth off waivers from the Patriots in November. He played in seven games for the Bucs, recording 20 tackles.

The Patriots acquired Haynesworth from the Redskins in July for a 2013 fifth-round pick. The controversial lineman struggled to get on the field in Foxboro and recorded just three tackles in six games.

Brickley on D&C: Expect B's to make moves

NESN Bruins analyst Andy Brickley made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning. The Bruins fell to 6-7-1 in their last 14 games after dropping a 3-0 decision to the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers Tuesday night.

"They have to take a look in the mirror," Brickley said of the B's. "They have some holes in their game. Until they address those and get better, they're not going to win."

Added Brickley: "They need to focus on the way they're playing right now. It looks like they're not going to catch the Rangers, the gap between first and second in the conference is probably too big at this point in the year. I don't see anybody in the division challenging Boston -- the deeper we get here into February and March and April -- for the division title.

"So, it's probably a pretty good position to be in. And it allows management to say, 'OK, what are we? What's our identity? What do we...

Mashup: Carter calls out Moss for quitting

Not everyone is excited about former Patriots receiver Randy Moss returning to the NFL. While Moss' agent claimed Tuesday night that three teams have shown an interest in the 35-year-old, former Vikings teammate Cris Carter said Moss first will need to prove that his attitude has improved.

"The one thing you have to address with Randy Moss is not a conditioning thing. It's not an age thing," Carter said during a Tuesday appearance on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike in the Morning." "It needs to be addressed. I believe it's the elephant in the room. It's that thing called quit.

"And Randy, not like any other superstar I've met, he has more quit in him than any of those other players. So I need to address that. That's what [Bill] Belichick did when he brought him over from Oakland. He told him he wasn't going to have it. But Randy, when things don’t go well, like no other player I’ve ever been around or...

Lundqvist, Rangers shut out Bruins
By: DJ Bean

Like many teams this season, the Bruins were reminded of just how good Henrik Lundvist is, as the New York goaltender blanked the B's, 3-0, Tuesday at TD Garden.

The Bruins fell behind in the first period on a Ryan Callahan power-play goal, and were seconds away from heading into the first intermission down by just one before Ryan McDonagh threw a puck off Zdeno Chara and past Tim Thomas with 12 seconds remaining. The teams skated to a scoreless second period that was mostly dominated by the Bruins, but they couldn't get anything past Lundqvist. Artem Anisimov made it 3-0 in the third period.

The Bruins thought they had a goal in the third period on a Dennis Seidenberg shot from the point, but replays showed that it missed and went in through the side of the net.

With the loss, the Bruins are now 8-8-1 over their last 17 games. The Bruins will now leave for a six-game road trip that begins Wednesday against...
