Wilfork on D&H: Mankins 'the real deal'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Thursday, calling in from his home in Florida, where he's been working out to get ready for preseason camp. "I'm going to be in tip-top shape come July 28, when I've got to report and get to work," he said. "I'm on schedule, I'm on track, I'm looking good, I feel good."

 

Talking about his contract negotiations leading up to his five-year, $40 million deal in early March, Wilfork said it was tough at times, but he always remained confident things would work out. "We kept a level head," he said. "We knew it was going to clear up."

 

Asked about Logan Mankins' contract dispute with the team, Wilfork said he respects the way the Patriots run their business, making sure the team is competitive every year. "You have to look at it from both sides," he said. "That's how I looked at it. I...

Celtics make Pierce signing official

The Celtics announced Thursday that they re-signed captain Paul Pierce. No details were released, but previous reports have indicated the contract is worth $61 million over four years.

 

"Paul has been a cornerstone of our franchise for the last decade and we could not be more pleased that he is returning to the team," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement.

 

Pierce is the third-leading scorer in franchise history with 19,899 points, trailing only Larry Bird and John Havlicek. He averaged 18.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game last season and made his eighth All-Star team.

 

"I am very excited to be back in Boston," Pierce said in the team's statement. "I have always said that I would love to retire as a Celtic, and re-signing here will allow me to do that. I would like to thank Danny, Doc [Rivers], the ownership group and the rest...

Duquette: Expect more Clemens steroid info

Former Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette, during a conversation on "Sports Buzz" on the Pulse Network with Butch Stearns, said that he expects more information to come out linking Roger Clemens to performance-enhancing drugs.

 

Asked if Clemens ever will be welcomed back in Boston, Duquette said: "There’s been a lot of water under the bridge since Clemens left town, and I think there’s more information that will come out here before we’re done with this current saga in Roger’s professional life."

 

Added Duquette: "Let’s let it play out a little bit more. I think there is more information and evidence that will show that Roger used performance-enhancing drugs in a significant way."

 

Clemens, who has been in a legal battle with former trainer Brian McNamee, has denied McNamee's accusations that...

O'Neal on D&H: No signing without Doc, Ray

New Celtic Jermaine O'Neal joined the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning and said he was excited about his new opportunity in Boston. "Coming down the stretch of my career, I can't think of a better way to end it than with a championship ring," he said.

 

O'Neal said his decision to sign with the C's wasn't about money. Despite being on some talented Pacers teams early in his career, O'Neal has yet to participate in a championship celebration, and this is his primary goal. "That's something I haven't been able to experience in my career," he said. "I talked it over with my family. ... We wanted to put ourselves in the best situation to win next year. [This is] a team that plays together, plays hard, the organization has the passion, the city has the passion."

 

O'Neal confirmed that it was Rajon Rondo who did the best selling job for Boston despite the fact that they aren't close friends....

Ainge on D&C: Shaq a possibility, Sheed done

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the Celtics' offseason maneuverings. He said center Kendrick Perkins likely will be out until the All-Star break as he recovers from his knee injury, Rasheed Wallace has not changed his mind about retiring, and the Celtics still have some interest in Shaquille O'Neal although it's "unlikely" they will be able to acquire the veteran center. He also cautioned not to be too concerned with how new Celtic Jermaine O'Neal played against the C's in the playoffs, as he was dealing with a "pretty serious ankle injury."

 

Here are some highlights from the interview.

 

On Rasheed Wallace's future: "Rasheed has decided he's going to retire."

 

On losing Tony Allen to the Grizzlies: "Tony wanted to expand his career, play a bigger role, show that he could do...
