Agent: 'No rush' on Chara extension
By: DJ Bean

As the Bruins look to sort out their cap mess for the coming season, it appears they may be less focused at the moment on extending their captain in Zdeno Chara, who is set to be a free agent at season's end.

 

Chara signed a five-year, $37.5 million deal as a free agent with the Bruins in 2006 and has been a key member of the team since, contributing as both the team’s top defenseman and its captain. Though there have been points at which Chara’s camp and the Bruins have touched lightly on the possibility of an extension, nothing has progressed past the preliminary stage.

 

Chara’s agent, Matt Keator, told WEEI.com that he and Chara are taking a “wait and see” approach, and that there’s “no rush now at all.”

 

Chara is the team’s highest-paid player and, at $7.5 million, has a cap hit that’s more than $4 million higher than any other defenseman...

Humbled Walker draws interest from NBA

Former Celtic Antoine Walker is a humbled man, changed by years of mistakes that he acknowledges led to his downfall, according to his uncle, former Red Sox infielder Chico Walker. WEEI.com's Jessica Camerato has the story of how Antoine is trying to work his way back to the NBA, which includes losing 18-25 pounds. Chico Walker claims that 4-6 teams have shown interest in the former All-Star forward, although Boston is not one of those clubs. The 12-year veteran had two stints in Boston before flaming out of the NBA in 2008 and suffering through financial and legal problems.

 

"He knows in order for him to get back in good graces, even with the fans, he has to walk that straight and narrow," Chico Walker said. "Fans in Boston have always been great to him, and that’s what he has to realize."

Brady: 'I refuse' to watch 'Hard Knocks'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning and talked about the team new tight ends, who provided the top highlights in Thursday's preseason victory over the Falcons.

 

Rookies Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski each caught a touchdown pass in Atlanta, but Brady warned people not to get too excited. Said Brady: "I caution everybody. These guys have never taken a regular-season snap. Everyone loves having them out there. Believe me, they wouldn't be out there with that first group if coach [Bill] Belichick and the offensive coaches didn't have confidence that they'd be able to do what they're asked to do. There's no doubt that both of those guys, even though they're very young, both in age and experience level, they do have a great feel for the game. ... That's the kind of player that works in our system."

 

Brady also raved about the play of free...
