Kirwan on D&C: Go with Graham

NFL.com analyst and former NFL executive Pat Kirwan joined the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about free agency and the draft. Kirwan said the Patriots would be wise to re-sign Leigh Bodden. "I would not trust any of the other cornerbacks in free agency," he noted.

 

In Kirwan's mock draft, he joins the list of people who are predicting the Patriots will select Michigan linebacker Brandon Graham. "He's really bright, he really loves football," Kirwan said, comparing Graham's focus to current Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo.

 

Kirwan, who spent eight years working for the Jets, said he is not convinced that New York has moved past the Patriots, because, "It starts with the quarterback." Of the Jets' recent decision to release running back Thomas Jones, Kirwan said: "Those guys ran more than anyone in the NFL, and they lost one of their bell cows. I think they made a tactical error....

Report: Pats close with TE Fells

According to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots are "closing in" on a deal with Rams free agent tight end Daniel Fells. A University of California-Davis product, Fells has seen limited action since signing with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2006. Last season with St. Louis, the 6-foot-4, 272-pounder caught 21 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns, by far his most productive season. Fells also spent time with the Raiders and Buccaneers in 2007 and '08, although he did not get into a game for either team.

 

Meanwhile, according to multiple reports, former Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson is scheduled to meet with the Browns on Wednesday, after visiting the Seahawks Monday.

Agent: No deal yet for Bodden

Conflicting reports have arisen Monday evening regarding the status of free agent cornerback Leigh Bodden. Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post and the NFL Network initially reported earlier Monday evening that Bodden had been re-signed by the Patriots. (UPDATED, 8:15 p.m.: That report was echoed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said the two sides had reached an agreement in principle.) But a short time later, Bodden's agent Alvin Keels posted the following message from his Twitter account: "Reports of Leigh Bodden re-signing with the Patriots are not true and premature at best. Leigh is still evaluating his options." Keels quickly added: "Leigh has always indicated his desire to return to New England, but nothing is official and probably will not be until [Tuesday] at the earliest." For...
