Mortensen: Mallet skills 'off the charts'

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen joined The Big Show Thursday to talk about Albert Haynesworth, the reported signing of Logan Mankins to a six-year deal and the Patriots' preseason opener vs. the Jaguars. Mortensen was asked if he thought there would be a change in preseason philosophy with a shortened training camp.

"What you are seeing more of -- and I think the league certainly has no problem with this -- is the head coaches communicating with each other in terms of how they are going to go at," said Mortensen. "It's different, obviously, because of the lockout and the offseason conditioning. I think for the most part we'll see fewer time for the starters, lesser time, and more of a look at the rookies and new players that they are trying to evaluate in this first game. The second game and third games are the veteran players playing more." 

Logan Mankins reportedly agreed to a six-year deal with the Patriots...

West: Judge won't let me leave country

Celtics unrestricted free agent guard Delonte West tweeted the following on Thursday: 

“Can’t even go get that overseas money. Judge said it’s a no go on leaving the country.”

In mid-July 2010, West was sentenced to eight months of home detention as a result of the weapons charges that cost him the first 10 games of this past season.

While the home detention ended in March, West still faces two years of unsupervised probation. Based on his Twitter comments, West will not be allowed to seek a deal outside of the country during the lockout.

A couple of weeks back, West’s agent Jarinn Akana told ESPN.com, “With any player, there has to be due diligence to see what’s happening [overseas]. That’s basically where [West is] at. But he’d like to be back in Boston. He had a great time there, he loves his teammates and he loves the organization.”

Childress: Moss 'vomited' on Vikings

Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress blasted Randy Moss in an interview with NFL.com on Thursday.

“We had good guys, by and large,” Childress said of his Vikings team in 2010, “[but Moss] walked in the locker room and vomited on it.”

Moss made a good first impression with Childress, but that did not last long.

“He called me and said, ‘I can’t wait, I can’t wait. I feel like I’m coming home again,’ ” Childress said of Moss’ first phone call after being acquired by the team with which he began his NFL career.

The wide receiver was waived by the Vikings just four weeks after they acquired him from the Patriots on October 6. 

Childress was fired in late November after a 31-3 loss to...

Poll: How much should Brady play?

The Patriots open their preseason schedule Thursday night at home against the Jaguars. There are a few trains of thought about Tom Brady and how much playing time he should receive. With the lockout-shortened offseason, the team might benefit more from seeing the new players in action. But Brady could take advantage of finding a rhythm with newcomers on the offense. Then again, no Patriots fan wants to see Brady get hurt before the season starts.

Billick on D&C: Ochocinco 'phenomenal'

Fox NFL analyst and former coach Brian Billick joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning, as the Patriots prepare for Thursday night's preseason opener vs. the Jaguars.

Billick said Patriots coach Bill Belichick did well in acquiring controversial players Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth.

The New England Patriots have been brilliant about getting players with specific roles in mind at just the right time in their career," Billick said. "Now, there is a little bit of a risk, but when you have the cache that coach Belichick and the New England Patriots have, you can extend yourself, take a little bit more of a gamble than maybe some other teams. Because ultimately the price you're paying for them is something you can walk away from very readily. I think they are going to do well."

Billick had high praise for Ochocinco — when the receiver is focused.

"You've got to love this young man, you love...
