Caserio: Holt IR was in 'best interest of club'

FOXBORO -- The decision to place veteran wide receiver Torry Holt on season-ending injured reserve with a reported knee injury was made "in the best interest of the club," Patriots personnel director Nick Caserio said on Monday morning. 

 

"I think the decision with Torry, we just felt that was the best thing for the club at this point in time," Caserio said. "Torry came in, he worked hard, he did everything we've asked him to do, a total professional. He's been a really good player and had a really productive career but in the end, we have to make decisions that we feel are best for the club so that's what we did.

 

"He may have missed a few days there at the end so we just went with the decision that we felt was best."

 

The team brought back receiver Buddy Farnham to take Holt's place and also signed rookie offensive lineman Brian Simmons on Sunday to the roster....

Faxon on D&C: 'Fault Dustin Johnson'
By: Jay Asser

PGA Tour player and golf analyst Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Monday morning to recap the unusual finish to the PGA Championship and Tiger Woods' chances of making the Ryder Cup team. Regarding Dustin Johnson's penalty for grounding his club in a bunker, Faxon admitted it was more memorable than Martin Kaymer winning the tournament. "I can't remember anything like this," he said. "With that, nobody is going to remember the tournament winner. Do you guys remember who won?"

 

Despite Johnson suffering a technicality, Faxon said that he had no one to blame but himself. "It was very clear to the PGA of America that this was going to be an issue, so they put notifications everywhere," he said. "They were in lockers, they were in registrations, they were on the first tee, they were on the bathroom doors, they were on mirrors, they were everywhere. So to use the excuse that...

Brady on D&C: Finger injury 'nothing'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his first weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show early Monday morning. Regarding the finger he injured during Thursday night's preseason opener against the Saints, Brady played down its severity. "I hit a helmet in the game," he said. "It's nothing. It's one of those things that happens."

 

Looking at the prospects for the 2010 Patriots, Brady said it's too early to know anything. "There's a lot of unknowns at this point," he said. "There's a lot that you learn over the course of the season." Brady said the offense needs to show more consistency this season. "We're going to need to be a very good offense this year," he said. "We're going to need to score a lot of points. Were going to need to be good and effective in the red area. I think we can be."

 

Asked if he's concerned that the Patriots did not...

Draft signing deadline looms for Sox

The Red Sox have until the end of Monday to sign players whom they selected in the June amateur draft. As of Sunday night, the team had yet to sign four of its top six picks: supplemental first rounder Anthony Ranaudo (RHP), second rounder Brandon Workman (RHP), third rounder Sean Coyle (SS) and fourth rounder Garin Cecchini (projected as a 3B), in no small part because all are believed to be seeking bonuses in excess of Major League Baseball's slot recommendations for their picks.

 

Signs are pointing towards the Sox signing Coyle (who is flying to Boston on Monday to take a physical and negotiate with the team) and Cecchini, while the situations with college right-handers Ranaudo and Workman are murkier. For details of where the Sox stand with all four players, click here.
