Fox empathizes with Belichick

Speaking to New England reporters during a conference call, Carolina Panthers coach John Fox empathized with Patriots coach Bill Belichick about Wednesday's reported disciplining of Randy Moss and three other Patriots who were late for a morning meeting and sent home for the day. Fox suspended star receiver Steve Smith the first two games of the 2008 season for punching a teammate during training camp. "I think I can speak for Bill, I don't think he wanted anything like that to happen just like I didn't want something like to happen. I don't think you sit around and scheme and try to premeditate it. I think it's something you have to do to keep order. Basically, you're the gatekeeper."

Pats add two to practice squad

FOXBORO — The Patriots made two additions to their practice squad today, adding quarterback Jeff Rowe and wide receiver Darnell Jenkins. Rowe is a 25-year-old out of the University of Nevada who was a fifth-round pick of the Bengals in the 2007 draft and spent that year with Cincinnati. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder spent the 2008 season on Cincinnati’s practice squad and remained there until being signed to the Seahawks active roster on December 12, 2008. He was cut in camp by the Seahawks, and worked out for several teams over the course of the season, most recently the Patriots last week. As for Jenkins, he’s a 26-year-old wide receiver out of the University of Miami. The 5-foot-10, 188-pounder was an undrafted free agent who was picked up by Houston last year — he’s also suited up for Cleveland and Tampa Bay.

Olney on D&H: Sox playing it smart

ESPN's Buster Olney made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning to discuss the latest baseball rumors. Olney said general managers around the league are looking for value with a Moneyball-type approach, and it's having a big affect on the free agent market. "I think quite literally you've got a lot more teams making a lot smarter decisions, and in a lot of cases they're working from the same equations and using the same numbers to make a value judgment," he said.


Olney said he's impressed with the Red Sox' approach regarding free agent outfielders Jason Bay and Matt Holliday. "I think they are absolutely playing it the exact right way," Olney said. "The big question now for the Red Sox is how serious are the Angels on Bay. I don't think we know that yet. If the Angels are serious and they want to pay him $80 million, I think he's going to be gone. But from the Red Sox' point of view, they are...
