Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker joined Mut & Merloni Monday afternoon and, despite implying recently that he probably would not attend the team's June minicamp while he negotiates a new contract, said he's hoping to make an appearance.
"We're still kind of waiting, but I'd really like to be there," he said. "I don't know. To say I'm going one way or another right now, I'm not going to say definite or anything like that. But I would definitely like to be at those minicamps for sure."
Welker, in town to host the Wes Welker Football Clinic this Saturday and Sunday in Peabody, indicated he harbors no ill toward the organization as negotiations drag on.
"I think we're all on the same page," he said. "And we're all trying to collectively come together and make something happen. I think everybody just needs to know that. We're all on the same...
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he plans on playing football “until they tell me they don’t want me anymore.”
Brady said last year that he wanted to play for another 10 years, but he amended that in a chat with Peter King, published Monday on SI.com. “My wife said to me, ‘When I met you [in 2006], you said you wanted to play 10 more years. How come that number never goes down?’ It’s that I love the game. I love the game,” Brady said.
The quarterback also touched on a few other topics.
On his work ethic: “I just met with coach [Bill] Belichick this morning. I still feel like I’m in my first year trying to prove myself. There’s no entitlement around coach Belichick. I’ve got to be the best guy for him to keep playing me. When I’m not, someone else will play.’’
On Matt Light’s retirement: “Matt...
Another day, another controversy from Jets headquarters. Quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh (a former Patriots QB) talked to the New York Daily News about Mark Sanchez' inconsistent 2011 season and questioned Sanchez's "decision-making."
“There were turnovers that were not his fault that were credited to him,” Cavanaugh said. “But there were enough that playing that position he needs to cut some of those down. Most of them came from just poor decision-making.
"So I spent a lot of time with him talking about ‘Let’s get focused on managing the game,' " Cavanaugh added. “Taking the big plays when they’re there [and] understanding that ... even though it’s drawn up to be a touchdown, not every play has to be a touchdown. Not every play has to be a completion. Sometimes throwing it away is a good thing. Sometimes taking a sack is better than throwing an interception.”...
In an email to WEEI.com following the Red Sox' 4-1 win over the Indians, Red Sox principal owner John Henry stated that he has faith -- despite his team's rocky start -- that the Sox have what it takes to get back into the playoff race.
"If we get the kind of pitching we're used to we'll be fine," Henry wrote. "Our offense has been great -- second in the AL. The bullpen has settled in and these last two nights we've gotten the starting pitching we've been needing to get.
"We have 80 percent of the season left. If we get pitching and get healthy we'll contend. I believe we will."
With the most recent win, the Red Sox improved to 14-19, 7 1/2 games in back of first-place Baltimore in the American League East. It was just the second time this season the Sox have won back-to-back games at Fenway Park, having last accomplished the feat during their first home series of the season, winning three in a row against Tampa Bay...
The Red Sox got to a pair of former Boston pitchers early and often as they beat the Indians, 12-1, Sunday at Fenway Park. The victory was Boston's third in a row, and Daniel Bard's first win in the month of May.
The Red Sox had big innings in the first and seventh. They did their damage against Justin Masterson in the first, as they plated four runs on RBIs from Will Middlebrooks, Daniel Nava and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Masterson eventually settled down but ended the day having allowed six earned runs over six innings thanks to a third-inning homer from Middlebrooks and another Saltalamacchia RBI single in the sixth.
It was once Masterson was out of the game that things really got out of hand. The Sox lit up former Sox reliever Dan Wheeler to the tune of five hits and six runs in the seventh inning, including a two-run homer from Saltalamacchia.
Bard went six innings, throwing 97 pitches and allowing one earned run. He walked four batters...
