Hernandez: Drug issues 'in the past'

FOXBORO — Addressing the media for the first time since reports surfaced he had failed a drug test while playing at the University of Florida, rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez said those issues are “in the past,” and he’s looking forward to a new start with the Patriots.

“I’m just worried about the future and the present,” he said Wednesday after a minicamp session at Gillette Stadium. “I’ve forgotten about the past. I just keep grinding, trying to do the best I can for this team.

According to reports, Hernandez failed multiple drug tests while playing for the Florida, an assessment he later refuted. He did pass his drug test at the combine in February, which means he won’t be entered in to the league substance-abuse program.

Sox 4th round pick seeks $1.75M
By: DJ Bean

Garin Cecchini, who was chosen with the 143rd overall pick by the Red Sox in last week's MLB draft, is seeking a signing a bonus of $1.75 million, according to his father and coach Glenn Cecchini. Projected to be a mid-first-round choice entering the season, Cecchini suffered a torn ACL in mid-March and despite an impressive recovery that already has him running and swinging a bat, he will not play in actually play in games before the league's August 16 signing deadline. Cecchini, who outshone Bryce Harper this fall on Team USA's under-18 squad, hit .402 with 43 RBI, 52 runs, 10 doubles, 6 homers, and 55 stolen bases as a junior. The older brother of Gavin Cecchini, who is projected to be a top pick in the 2012 draft, Garin is committed to go to LSU. He was a 4.0 student at Barbe. For more on Cecchini, click here

Pedro talks to Phillies about comeback

Pedro Martinez has discussed the possibility of pitching in the second half of this season with the Phillies, according to Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

 

In an ESPN story, Amaro said: "We have talked to his agent, but there's nothing so far. We are not negotiating, but we've been talking to him. It depends on whether he wants to play or not."

 

ESPN reported that sources close to Martinez said the former Red Sox star has begun working out in preparation for a second-half return similar to last season, when he joined the Phillies in August and pitched the final two months of the regular season and into the playoffs.

Jets' Revis clears air with Ryan

Jets coach Rex Ryan met with disgruntled star cornerback Darrelle Revis Tuesday night, and the coach told ESPN Wednesday morning that the two have worked out any problems. Revis created a controversy when he asked out of a drill at minicamp on Monday because he didn't feel well, then later told reporters it was a statement about his concern over contract negotiations. Ryan said Wednesday that Revis now insists he did feel "lightheaded" during practice. Added Ryan: "The great thing is, he never has to apologize to me. Just go out, be yourself and that will be good enough for me."
