Haynesworth awarded to Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were awarded Albert Haynesworth on Wednesday after the team made a claim for him off waivers before the 4 p.m. ET deadline. Haynesworth, 30, was released by the Patriots on Tuesday and claimed by the Bucs one day later, according to Tampa Bay general manager Mark Dominik.

The move was made out of neccessity since the team lost its promising defensive tackle Gerald McCoy for the season to a torn right biceps in Sunday's loss to the Saints. McCoy was Tampa Bay's first-round pick in 2010, third overall in the NFL draft behind Sam Bradford and Ndamukong Suh. 

Haynesworth was brought to New England in a late July trade with the Redskins that cost the Patriots their fifth-round pick in 2013. He was then signed to a two-year, $8.7 million contract, with only $1.5 owed to him in 2011. 

The Buccaneers had expressed interest in signing Haynesworth before Washington signed him to a seven-year, $100 million deal before...

Revis: 'I believe' I am the best

Speaking on a conference call Wednesday afternoon, Jets star and Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis agreed with his coach's assessment that he is the best at his position in football. 

"Yeah, I believe so," Revis said of Rex Ryan's statement earlier in the day to reporters in another conference call. "And not saying that out of cockiness or anything, I'm a humble guy but I work hard. This has been my dream, to be the best. Looking up to guys like Deion Sanders, Darrell Green and Mel Blount so this is where my life is at right now, my situation and I'm just trying to do it the best I can."

Revis also admitted that Welker was his responsibility when the Patriots receiver beat him for a 73-yard connection on the first play of the second half in New England's 30-20 win on Oct. 9 at Gillette Stadium.

Pats practice: Chung, Spikes miss

FOXBORO -- Safety Patrick Chung and linebackers Dane Fletcher and Brandon Spikes were among those missing at the start of Patriots practice on Wednesday as the team began on-field preparations for the Jets this Sunday night at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Chung appeared to injure himself backing up and trying to make an interception on the sideline on the final drive of the game by the Giants. He limped back to the huddle for the next play but came out of the game and was not on the field for the game-winning touchdown. Spikes was also not on the field at the end of the game, as Tracy White filled in. Coach Bill Belichick said on Monday that the team was waiting for test results on Spikes, who reportedly strained his MCL in his right knee. Fletcher has missed the last two games with a thumb injury. 

Offensive lineman Ryan Wendell, who filled in briefly for Dan Connolly at center on Sunday, was also missing at start of practice, which was...

Peverley back at Bruins practice
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Rich Peverley returned to practice Wednesday after missing Monday's game against the Islanders with an undisclosed injury. 

"I feel good," Peverley said after the practice. "Day-to-day, but it feels good."

Peverley had missed the team's three previous practices dating back to last week, though he did play Saturday against the Maple Leafs. Peverley said he felt "OK," against the Leafs and that it was "better to hold off." He said that he feels he has a better chance of getting into Thursday's game, though he remains day-to-day.

"I can't really give you an update, but just by watching him, he looked OK," Claude Julien said after practice. "We'll find out more and see whether he's an available player for tomorrow." 

Daniel Paille (broken nose) had surgery Wednesday and is doubtful for Thursday.
