NFL fines Belichick $50,000 for contact

FOXBORO -- The NFL announced Wednesday that Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been fined $50,000 for "impermissible physical contact with an official" following Sunday night's 31-30 loss to the Ravens. 

Seeking clarification on whether Baltimore's game-winning field goal would be reviewed, Belichick grabbed the arm of official Esteban Garza, who continued running off the field. Belichick explained on Monday that he did not intent to disrespect the official and that he simply wanted to know whether the play would be reviewed. 

"I don't have anything to add to it," Belichick said in his Wednesday briefing with reporters. "Whatever the league decides to do, I'll respect and just keep trying to do my job."

Belichick also declined comment on the report that an agreement had been reached between the NFL and its regular officials and that they could be back on the field for games this Sunday.

Report: Deal between NFL, refs 'at hand'
By: DJ Bean

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the NFL and the NFL referees association have an agreement "at hand" that could end the lockout of the league's referees and have them officiating Week 4 games. 

Writes Mortensen:

The NFL and the NFL Referees Association made enough progress in negotiations Tuesday night that the possibility of the locked-out officials returning in time to work this week's games has been discussed, according to sources on both sides.

An agreement in principle is at hand, according to one source familiar to talks.

The NFL has been using replacement officials since the preseason and has seen controversial results throughout the first three weeks of the season. Mortensen notes that the two sides have compromised in their stances regarding pension plans and that the last...

Patriots sign ex-Panthers DL Terrell McClain

The Patriots on Wednesday announced the signing of defensive lineman Terrell McClain. Marcus Fortson, a defensive tackle who was signed as an undrafted free agent in April, was released to make room on the roster.

McClain, a 6-foot-2, 291-pounder from South Florida, was chosen in the third round of the 2011 draft by the Panthers. He had 19 tackles (12 unassisted) and one sack in 12 games last season. After failing to impress this preseason, he was cut on Sept. 2 when Carolina signed former Bills defensive lineman Dwan Edwards.

McClain will wear No. 93 in New England.

Remy on D&C: Iglesias will hit in time

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance with Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning as the Sox close in on the end of a disappointing season.

"For the most part, I think these guys have been good about going about it the best they can in a bad situation," Remy said of the season's final month.

Looking toward next season, Remy expects a lineup that looks "100 percent different" outside of David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks. He said there's a chance Jose Iglesias could be the starting shortstop in April despite his offensive struggles (.125/.236/.208 in 48 major league at-bats this season).

"There's no question the guy's a big league shortstop and going to be a very good big league shortstop," Remy said of the youngster. "I've been surprised a little bit with his swing. I thought he was more of a slap kind of guy. He's not really that kind of hitter. I've got a gut...

Report: Belichick to receive fine Wednesday

According to a report on NFL.com, the punishment for Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who grabbed a referee after Sunday night's loss to the Ravens, will be announced Wednesday afternoon, and it will include a fine.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh will not be fined for his behavior Sunday, according to multiple reports. Harbaugh was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the fourth quarter of the game.

Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan reportedly was fined $25,000 for berating officials following his team's 38-31 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

Belichick defended his actions on Monday, insisting that he only was trying to get the official's attention for an explanation about the Ravens' game-winning field goal as time expired.

"I have never meant any disrespect or in any way tried to abuse or be disrespectful to the officials and the job that they do," Belichick said. "I'm trying to get an explanation for obviously...
