The Patriots will host free agent defensive back Steve Gregory for a visit Wednesday afternoon, according to multiple reports. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Gregory does have some positional versatility -- he has worked as a safety, and also spent time in the slot and on special teams. The 29-year-old is an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse who has spent six years in the NFL, all with San Diego. (Gregory's visit was first reported by Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.)

President Barack Obama made his NCAA tournament picks and went with North Carolina to beat Kentucky in the NCAA championship game. Obama, who attended Tuesday night's first play-in game in Dayton, Ohio, with British Prime Minister David Cameron, has a pair of 2 seeds joining 1 seeds UNC and Kentucky in the Final Four: Ohio State and Missouri.
Although he got his law degree from Harvard after attending Columbia as an undergraduate, Obama is not predicting the Crimson to upset Vanderbilt on Thursday. His only real surprise prediction is NC State, as he has the 11th-seeded Wolfpack knocking off Georgetown and advancing to the Sweet 16.
Obama filled out a bracket for ESPN for the fourth straight year. He had Kansas winning the title the past two years, but the Jayhawks failed to reach the Final Four both times. He correctly predicted North Carolina to win in...
NESN Bruins analyst Andy Brickley made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning with guest hosts Dale Arnold and Steve Buckley. The Bruins were routed Tuesday night by the Lightning, 6-1, their third straight loss.
"When you evaluate any kind of loss or victory, you usually start along the goal line. That's been an area of strength for the Bruins for a number of years now, but lately it hasn't been," Brickley said. "They haven't been getting the saves, they haven't been getting the goaltending and the team defense combining with that, and that's why you've lost three in a row. And it's been an ugly three."
Newcomer Marty Turco started Tuesday, was pulled for Tim Thomas after allowing three goals in the first 4:31. Turco returned in the second period after Thomas surrendered two goals.
Brickley said it shouldn't be much of a surprise that Turco has struggled in his brief time in Boston....
On the same day Brandon Marshall was traded from the Dolphins to the Bears, news broke that the wide receiver allegedly punched a woman in the face during a weekend incident outside a New York City nightclub.
The New York Post reports that Marshall was thrown out of the club early Sunday morning after getting in a fight with an unnamed football player, and both players then argued with a group that was waiting to get inside the club to celebrate a woman's 24th birthday. Marshall then threw a punch that landed in the left eye of Christin Myles. It was not clear if Marshall was intending to hit Myles or was aiming for someone else.
Marshall's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, said Marshall was at the club with his wife and some close friends, and that he was not involved in the initial fight inside the bar. Steinberg also said Marshall's wife was hit in the face with a bottle and "suffered serious injury." Steinberg did not explain Marshall's...
The Bruins came one step closer to surrendering the Northeast Division lead after getting shelled by the Lightning, 6-1, Tuesday night in Tampa.
With the loss, the Bruins' third in a row, the B's remain at 83 points -- just two points ahead of the Senators, who will face the last-place Canadiens Wednesday night.
With Tim Thomas having played in the last nine games for the Bruins, backup Marty Turco was given his first start as a member of the team, but three quick Lightning goals from Tom Pyatt, Nate Thompson and Ryan Shannon in a matter of 4:31 led to the B's yanking Turco in favor of Thomas. Turco returned to the game 3:06 into the second period after Steven Stamkos made it 5-0. Thomas also allowed an unassisted goal to Victor Hedman late in the first period.
The Bruins finally got on the board 1:55 into the third period, when a Johnny Boychuk shot went off Jordan Caron in front and past Lightning goaltender Dustin...
