A police SWAT team has surrounded the home of former Patriots coach Corwin Brown, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune. Police arrived earlier in the day in response to a domestic disturbance call and the SWAT team was called in after shots were reported fired from inside the house. It is believed that Brown is the only person inside the house.
Brown coached the Patriots' secondary in 2010 but was let go in February. He was previously the defensive coordinator at Notre Dame. Brown was drafted in the fourth round by the Patriots in 1993 and played four seasons in New England before joining the Jets in 1997.

Appearing as a guest on the Mut & Merloni show on Friday, MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar said that he doesn't think the Home Run Derby had a negative affect on Adrian Gonzazlez who has hit only one home run since participating in the event.
"It’s the same thing we heard about Bobby Abreu when he went to Detroit and hit 50 homers, then came back and hit two for the second half," Millar said. "Home run derby doesn’t screw your swing up. OK? Playing golf doesn’t screw your swing up. You know when you’re in BP you’re trying to launch and hit homers and you know if you’re in a 1-2 count and facing Josh Beckett you better fight your way to get that ball in play. So I don’t buy into any of that. You go through droughts in the big leagues."
Millar was also dismissive about reports of sign-stealing in Toronto. Millar relayed the story of the Indians accusing the Sox' Mike Timlin of...
On Friday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the new contract for Pro Bowl offensive lineman Logan Mankins, saying it was “great” to have him inked to a long-term deal and calling Mankins “one of our best players.”
“It’s great. I think the world of Logan,” Belichick said on a conference call with reporters. “He’s done a great job for us here since he’s come to the Patriots. I’m glad that he’ll be here for many years in the future. He’s one of our best players, one of our most consistent players. He’s been durable, has a great work ethic, he’s really smart. He plays hard. He plays tough. There are almost no negatives with Logan.
“He’s an outstanding person. He’s an outstanding player. He does things the way that we would like our team to do them, so he’s a great example for all of us to look at, because he plays hard,...
Ron Artest told The Los Angeles Times Thursday that he is "definitely going to play for the [Chesire] Jets" of the British Basketball League. Although the Jets can only pay him about $2,500 per month, Artest was lured with a promise that he will get to appear in a television soap opera and perform his music. "When they told me I had the opportunity and asked if I wanted to do a soap opera, I said, 'Of course, man.' I'm not going to run away. When I was a kid, I wanted to be on TV. Why would I run away from being on TV?" Artest is expected to join the team in late November, missing the first two months of the season partly because he first promised to play in some exhibition games for a team in Finland.

FOXBORO -- Always the perfectionist, Patriots coach Bill Belichick assessed his team's performance following Thursday night's 47-12 blowout win over the Jaguars.
"It's good to get started after a couple of weeks of practices, of course against ourselves. It's good to get out in the stadium and play. I thought there were some positive things tonight," Belichick said of his team, which was led by quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett.
"I think both guys did a good job," Belichick said. "They moved the ball, we scored some points so it was good. There were plenty of mistakes, things to work on but there were some positives."
Belichick pointed to Aaron Hernandez's fumble on the Patriots first offensive play of the night and the three-and-out on their next possession before acknowledging the play of rookie Stevan Ridley and Taylor Price, who combined for four touchdowns and receiver Buddy Farnham, who...

After an embarrassing outing last night, Angry Lou rips into Eduardo Rodriguez, who seems to not realize that he needs more than two pitches in the big leagues.
Angry Lou is angry at Red Sox manager John Farrell, who is misusing his roster and didn't give Xander Bogaerts a night off last night, even though they made a roster move for a back-up shortstop.
Angry Lou is still rolling, and this time he focuses his anger at Dave Dombrowski for not getting a left fielder during the off season and for general bad roster construction.
Inspired by the tease of being great that Eduardo Rodriguez showed us in the past, we look at four other Sox players that had similar teases.
