King on M&M: Ellis a big plus for Pats

Sports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Friday to talk about the Patriots and other NFL news.

Most of the talk in the preseason in Foxboro has centered around the Pats' revamped defensive line. King said the key player might be one who isn't getting as much attention.

Said King: "I think one of the great sort-of untold stories of this year for the Patriots is going to be Shaun Ellis. … I thought it was really interesting that he had a huge game in the Jets' win over New England in the playoffs. When he left the Jets and went to the Patriots, to me if was the reverse Johnny Damon deal. Yet, very little was made of it. And I think because in football you're sort of an anonymous guy on the defensive line a lot of times, especially when you play a 3-4.

"But here's a guy who's played everything. He's played all over the line, both in a 3-4 and a 4-3. So, I think both the...

Safety LeGrande to transfer from BC

Only days after junior free safety Okechukwu Okoroha was dismissed from the Boston College football team for disciplinary reasons, coach Frank Spaziani announced Friday morning that senior strong safety Dominick LeGrande has decided to transfer.

Both Okoroha and LeGrande were expected to be starters this season, leaving the Eagles thin at the position as they prepare for the Sept. 3 opener vs. Northwestern.

LeGrande played in 11 games last season, recording 21 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He had three tackles (two solo) vs. Nevada in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

Okoroha played all 13 games last season, starting the final six.

Doubront being readied for bullpen

Left-hander Felix Doubront tossed two scoreless innings of relief on Thursday night for Triple-A Pawtucket, and going forward this season, the Red Sox plan to use the 23-year-old in relief, said farm director Mike Hazen. With Andrew Miller having given the Sox six starters who are stretched out at the big league level, Alfredo Aceves available as an emergency starter and Kyle Weiland still in the PawSox rotation, the Sox felt they could prepare Doubront for relief without jeopardizing the depth of their big league rotation.

Doubront has had an injury-riddled campaign, going 2-5 with a 4.30 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) in Pawtucket. However, until his final two starts in August, he sported a 3.14 ERA, and he struck out 61 while walking 24 in 69 innings in Triple-A this year.

Doubront also spent three games in the majors at the start of the year, allowing two runs in 2 2/3 innings. A year ago, in 12 big league appearances (three starts), he was 2-2...
