Pats sign two seventh rounders

The Patriots announced the signing of two more players this afternoon, seventh-round picks Kade Weston (defensive lineman) and Zac Robinson (quarterback). Weston, a defensive lineman from Georgia, was selected by the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2010 draft with the 248th selection overall, while Robinson, a quarterback from Oklahoma State, was selected by the Patriots 250th overall.

Weston, 6-foot-5, 315 pounds, played in 48 career games with 20 starts at Georgia and finished with 78 total tackles and four sacks. Robinson, 6-foot-3, 218 pounds, became the starter after the second game of his sophomore season in 2007 and finished his career as the all-time leader in passing and total offense, amassing 10,175 yards in total offense and 8,317 passing yards.

Weston and Robinson are the seventh and eighth members of New England’s 12 2010 draft choices to sign with the team.

SI: Tiger still top earner in U.S. sports

Sports Illustrated released its annual list of the 50 highest-earning American athletes, and golfer Tiger Woods retained the top spot despite his off-course woes. While he reportedly lost more than $20 million in endorsements since the scandal broke late last year, Woods is still on top with an annual income of more than $90 million, including money from salary, winnings, bonuses, endorsements and appearance fees.

 

Fellow golfer Phil Mickelson ($61.6 million), boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. ($60.2 million), NBA star LeBron James ($45.7 million) and Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez ($37 million) round out the top five. A-Rod is one of three Yankees in the top 13, along with Derek Jeter (8) and CC Sabathia (13).

Francona: Pedroia 'like a caged animal'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show and announced that infielder Jed Lowrie will be inserted into the starting lineup for Wednesday's afternoon game vs. the A's in Oakland. "He's going to play shortstop today," Francona stated. He added that he expects to otherwise keep the lineup the same, with the exception of Dusty Brown catching.

 

Lowrie has yet to play this season due to mononucleosis. He just completed a 10-game stint in the minors preparing to return to Boston. He was activated along with pitcher Clay Buchholz. To make room, the Sox designated first baseman Ryan Shealy for assignment and sent Dustin Richardson to Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Talking about the fact that more injured players are expected to make their way back into the lineup this week, Francona said he's happy to have them back, but he needs more than the "names" returning to the active...
