Patriots sign LB Bruce Davis

The Patriots signed LB Bruce Davis today. Terms of the contract were not announced. Davis spent most of the 2009 season on the New England practice squad.

He saw action in five games as a rookie last season in Pittsburgh as a contributor on special teams. Davis was waived by Pittsburgh on September 5, 2009 and was signed to the New England practice squad on Oct. 7.

Ainge talks refs, Sheed on Big Show
By: DJ Bean

Danny Ainge, appearing on Wednesday's Big Show, addressed a wide range of topics regarding the Celtics, including Glen Davis' flagrant foul and Doc Rivers' ejection during Monday night's 102-96 loss to the Hawks. "We can't let a call build into worse," Ainge said. "A flagrant foul is two free throws and the ball. You can't let that escalate into five free throws and the ball." Added Ainge: "By the way, Doc was right [Davis' flagrant foul call was later rescinded], but does it justify him getting ejected? We could have used Doc in that game. He knows that." 

 

Staying with the topic of flagrant fouls, Ainge defended the erratic on-court behavior of Rasheed Wallace, saying: "Rasheed as a whole — all the things he does for [the Celtics] — we'll take." Ainge said that Wallace is "not going to change," adding: "Emotions are part of the game. We know that it's been a...

Quinn on D&C: McGwire a heavy user

ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and talked about the Mark McGwire situation. Quinn said McGwire clearly underreported his drug use in his admission on Monday. Said Quinn: "We talked to several convicted drug dealers who had connections to him, and they described not a guy who was doing low doses of something for a little bit of time to get over an injury, they talked about a guy who did sophisticated arrays of very serious drugs because he wanted to get huge."

 

Quinn said McGwire's implication that he was a victim of the steroid culture does not hold up under scrutiny. "A bunch of guys have said that, 'Hey, look, I just after a while felt like everybody was doing and I had to continue just to keep a job.' The problem was I think he was into it so early that he was helping lead the way. I don't think he introduced steroids to baseball by any stretch. They...
