Report: Spikes in 'embarrassing situation'

The agent for Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes told the Boston Herald that his client is in "an embarrassing situation" after a sex tape involving the second-round pick surfaced on the internet.

 

“It’s an embarrassing situation for Brandon,” Terry Watson told the Herald. “It certainly doesn’t reflect the kind of person that he is.”

 

The Patriots declined to comment. 

 

The story began to surface on Monday night, when an emailer offered the video to Deadspin.com for $1,500. The website refused to pay, but the video found its way to several sites on the internet.

Edelman, Wheatley missing from practice
By: DJ Bean

Missing from Patriots' Tuesday practice were receiver Julian Edelman, cornerbacks Leigh Bodden, Terrence Wheatley, Kyle Arrington and Bret Lockett, running back Chris Taylor, safety Brandon McGowan, offensive linemen Logan Mankins and Nick Kaczur, defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick and Darryl Richard, and defensive end/outside linebacker Jermaine Cunningham.

 

Among those in shorts were tight end Aaron Hernandez and nose tackle Ron Brace. The notable subtractions are Chris Taylor and Deaderick, while Myron Pryor returned to the field.

 

Rosters must be cut down to 75 players by 4 p.m., so some of the players may be off the field due to their impending departure and not necessarily due to injury.

Patterson, Saltalamacchia rejoin Sox

BALTIMORE -- Outfielder Eric Patterson and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia have rejoined the Red Sox in Baltimore after concluding their rehab assignments with Triple-A Pawtucket. Patterson, who went on the disabled list on Aug. 17 (retroactive to Aug. 16) with a neck strain, went 4-for-17 with two doubles and triple during his rehab stint with the PawSox. Saltalamacchia, who went on the D.L. on Aug. 19 (retroactive to Aug. 16) due to a right leg infection, was 5-for-15 with two doubles and a homer in his four games in Pawtucket.

 

While both players are in Baltimore on Tuesday, the Sox are expected to wait until Wednesday to activate them, as the major league roster limit grows from 25 to 40 players on Sept. 1.

BB: Brady's contract talk not 'unprecedented'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick said Tuesday he's not worried about Tom Brady entering the final year of his contract with the Patriots or any possible distraction it might present. 

 

"Everybody out there is under contract," Belichick said. "Every player on the field is under contract. There are a lot of players on our team in the last year of their contract, there are a lot of players on every team that are in the last year of their contract. That's not an unprecedented situation." 

 

Pressed again about whether he would like to see a deal done with Brady before the season, Belichick focused again on the upcoming preseason finale with the Giants Thursday night and the season opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 12 at Gillette Stadium.

 

"We're coaching the team," Belichick said. "I'm coaching the team. Every player out there is under contract."

Mashup: Clemens has solid round

Roger Clemens appeared at his arraignment Monday afternoon in Washington and then went to play golf in South Carolina, hustling through a round of 18 in order to avoid disqualification at the World Amateur Handicap Championship in Myrtle Beach. Warpping up his round at 7:30 p.m., Clemens finished with an 84. Meanwhile, his not guilty plea is more evidence that Clemens is a Hall of Fame liar, writes one columnist, summing up the feeling of many in the media.
