Patriots sign Gerard Warren

The Patriots have signed veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Warren is a 6-foot-4, 325-pounder out of Florida who has played for Oakland, Denver and Cleveland over the course of his nine years in the NFL. The 31-year-old has had good production over the course of his career, with his best season coming in 2003 with the Browns where he had 32 tackles, to go along with 5.5 sacks. (UPDATE, 6:15 p.m.: Patriots coach Bill Belichick just confirmed the signing in his post-draft press conference.) For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Rivers on Rondo: He's like Varitek

MIAMI — Lost in the dramatics of Paul Pierce’s game-winner, Ray Allen’s Game 2 explosion and even Tony Allen’s brilliant defense on Dwyane Wade in Game 1 has been the stellar play of Rajon Rondo.

Through three games Rondo has averaged just 11.7 points, but that never tells the full story with him. He’s also getting 10 assists a nights and 6.3 rebounds, but again, numbers can’t define Rondo.

Rather, it’s been his ability to run the offense for over 40 minutes a night that has been the catalyst for the Celtics offensive execution.

“He’s light years [ahead of where he was], but a lot of that is just age, maturity,” Rivers said. “The other part of it is system. He’s been in the same system his entire career. I thought Game 3 was the best play-calling game in his career. He was like [Jason] Varitek as far as calling the right pitch. He was phenomenal. That...

Lugo on boos: 'I wasn't surprised'

Julio Lugo was not surprised when he was booed in his return to Fenway Park on Friday night as a member of the Baltimore Orioles. He said it was the same reaction he had received before he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals last season.

“You hear some people clap and some people express whatever they’re feeling, but it doesn’t surprise me,” he told WEEI.com prior to Saturday’s game. “That’s what I was getting in the end when I was here at the end, people started saying stuff about me. But it didn’t surprise me. I was ready for it.”

On Friday, Lugo struck swinging to end the game, a 4-3 Red Sox win. Even though he is out of the lineup on Saturday, he does not anticipate a different response from the crowd in his next game (he expects to play on Sunday). He just expects a different result at the plate.

“I’m going to expect the same thing, especially...

Patriots wrap up draft
By: DJ Bean

FOXBORO — In the seventh and final round of the NFL draft, the Patriots chose Alabama defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, Georgia defensive tackle Kade Weston,and Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson. The 6-foot-3 7/8, 314-pound Deaderick had 83 tackles in four years at Alabama but an off-field scare in 2009 was more headline-grabbing than his stats.

Deaderick was shot in the arm prior five days before the 2009 season by an attempted robber outside an apartment complex. Deaderick was not seriously hurt and went on to play the entire...

Pierce: It's a must win

MIAMI – The Celtics elected not to hold practice Saturday afternoon after taking Game 3 from Miami on a dramatic buzzer-beater by Paul Pierce to take a 3-0 lead in their series, but don’t mistake that for over-confidence.

“I’m looking at it like it’s a 3-3 tie,” Pierce said. “It’s a must game for us. We want to be desperate for this win. We don’t want them coming back to Boston with any kind of confidence. You never know what can happen in this league. They’ve got a great player in [Dwyane] Wade and a team that played well down the stretch." Read the full post on Green Street.
