Brady: Ochocinco 'has done a great job'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking during his session with the media at University Place on the campus on IUPUI on Tuesday morning, Tom Brady was asked about Chad Ochocinco's season in New England. Expected to be a significant contributor to the offense, Ochocinco caught just 15 passes in the regular season and has yet to record a postseason reception.

"I've really loved having Chad on this team," Brady said. "I wish he had a bigger role on this team. I wished he played more snaps, but with Deion [Branch] and Wes [Welker] and Rob [Gronkowski] and Aaron [Hernandez], obviously they are so hard to take off the field. Chad's done a great job, he's come to work every day and he's willing to do what it takes to win. I think he's enjoying the experience this week."

Brady: Welker 'deserves' to be back

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking during his session with the media at University Place on the campus on IUPUI on Tuesday morning, Tom Brady was asked about perhaps playing his final game with Wes Welker on Sunday. Welker is in the final year of a five-year, $18 million contract. 

"We haven't talked about that, I wouldn't want to think about that," Brady said.  "I hope he's back, he certainly deserves to be. He's done a great job since he's been here, led the league in catches and yards. He really is an underdog, a great player for this team."

Since joining the Patriots in 2007, Welker has a total of 554 receptions, most by any NFL player. His 122 catches topped all players in 2011, the third time in five seasons that he's led that category.

Mashup: Rodgers rips NFC effort at Pro Bowl

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expressed disappointment that his teammates in Sunday's Pro Bowl did not give their best effort. The NFC lost the game, 59-41.

"I'll be honest with you. I was a little disappointed," Rodgers told Milwaukee radio station ESPN 540. "I felt like some of the guys on the NFC side embarrassed themselves."

Added Rodgers: "I was just surprised that some of the guys either didn't want to play or when they were in there didn't put any effort into it."

Epstein: Didn't need to leave Sox in '05

FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, at a Sacred Heart University event, suggested that in retrospect, while he did not regret leaving the Red Sox for approximately three months after the 2005 season, he could have addressed the concerns that led to his departure without abandoning his post as GM of the club.

"That was a time conflict of what organization stood for. I didn’t agree with the values the ownership had of running Red Sox. You have to be all in when you’re a general manager.  You use up a lot of energy and sacrifice your personal life. If you’re not all in you can’t do it," Epstein said. "Due to an internal conflict, I didn’t like what the organization came to stand for. There were a lot of internal politics. I didn’t want to sign a long-term contract with an organization that I didn’t stand for their values. I said no thanks and took some time away. The...

C's Rondo out for eighth straight game

BOSTON -- Considering he arrived an hour before game time in a suit and wrist brace, it didn't appear Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo would make his return against the Raptors. Doc Rivers confirmed as much just before gametime.

The DNP will be Rondo's eighth consecutive game on the sidelines after he suffered a right wrist injury against these same Raptors on Jan. 18. Various reports have suggested he could return as soon as Friday, although Rondo seemingly changes his status on a nightly basis.

"I don't know if he'll play or not," said Rivers about Rondo's potential for the Knicks game in two days. "We'll just wait until Friday. I think he'll be close. He's getting closer every day."

Fellow guard Keyon Dooling will miss his fourth consecutive game after suffering a hip injury against the Magic last week. He missed the previous seven games before that with a knee injury. Avery Bradley will once again assume the starting...
