Schefter on D&C: CBA issues slow Brady deal

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Tom Brady's contract talks. Schefter is much more optimistic than others who have indicated the QB is unhappy with the Patriots. Schefter said he believes Brady is on schedule to be signed before Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

 

"On the basis of everything I've heard this weekend, it sounds like the Patriots and Tom Brady are furthest along at this point in time," Schefter said. "It sounds like something definitely can get wrapped up here this summer." Added Schefter: "I did not get the sense that it is imminent, but I did get the sense it's certainly possible in the next few weeks."

 

Schefter said he believes concerns about the collective bargaining agreement and how it will affect the salary cap are slowing down the process.

Mashup: Cowboys' Bryant skips hazing

Cowboys first-round draft pick Dez Bryant wants no part of some basic rookie hazing at the team's training camp. On Sunday, Bryant refused to carry veteran wide receiver Roy Williams' pads after practice, stating: "I'm not doing it. I feel like I was drafted to play football, not carry another player's pads." Responded Williams: "Everybody has to go through it. I had to go through it. No matter if you're a No. 1 pick or the 7,000th pick, you've still got to do something when you're a rookie." Williams threatened to go to "Step 2" in his attempt to get the rookie in line. Read more about that, plus check out additional stories, videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Report: New deal for Brady 'within reach'

The Patriots and Tom Brady have had "ongoing dialogue" regarding a new deal for the quarterback, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. In a story published on Sunday night, Schefter reports that a contract extension for Brady — who is entering the final year of his current deal — is now "within reach," and seems to suggest that it's not a matter of if a deal will get done to keep the quarterback in New England, but when. In addition, Schefter writes that the only reason a contract wouldn't get done would be "primarily because of how complex the contract is and how difficult it is to complete it without knowing the specifics of the NFL's next collective bargaining agreement."

Report: Brady joins rookies in Foxboro

Quarterback Tom Brady reported to Patriots camp on Sunday with the rookies, according to a tweet from Adam Caplan of Foxsports.com. Caplan wrote, "Tom Brady reported to the team today, a source said. Apparently, the QBs reported with the rookies." There was some speculation that Brady would hold out to show his displeasure about his contract situation — he's entering the final year of a deal he signed in 2005.

Okajima's struggles lead to Sox loss

Hideki Okajima allowed five straight singles (including two mishandled bunts) after coming on for Daniel Bard in the eighth inning, letting the Mariners come away with a come-from-behind, 4-2 victory over the Red Sox in the teams' series finale Sunday in Seattle. With the loss the Red Sox fall five games in back of the Rays for the top spot in the Wild Card chase, with the Yankees now leading the Sox by eight games in the division. (For a complete recap click here.)

 

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched six innings, giving up one run on four hits, striking out four and walking five. It was the second time this season Matsuzaka -- who threw 110 pitches -- issued as many as five free passes this season, and the 14th time in his career he has succumbed to such wildness.

 

The Sox' offense came in the fourth inning when Kevin Youkilis doubled in J.D. Drew and...
