Source: Pats interested in Douglas

A league source confirmed a report to WEEI.com that the Patriots have expressed interest in free agent defensive end Marques Douglas and the two sides have spoken, but Douglas has not yet been to Foxboro for a visit. Douglas is a 6-foot-2, 290-pounder who just completed his 11th season in the NFL, and has played for the Jets (2009), Baltimore (1999, 2001-04, 2008), San Francisco (2005-07) and New Orleans (2000). The 32-year-old had his finest season in 2004 with the Ravens, when he finished with 72 tackles and 5.5 sacks. The news was first reported by the Boston Herald.

King on D&H: Free agency 'fool's gold'

Sports Illustrated's Peter King was a guest on the Dale & Holley show Monday afternoon to talk about NFL offseason maneuverings and downplayed the effect of free agency, calling it "a little bit of fool's gold now." Said King: "For the most part, free agency, especially expensive, first-weekend free agency,  very rarely pays off as effectively as a team had hoped it would."

 

King addressed the Patriots' wide receiver situation and said it's a big concern. "I just think right now you can bring in the Josh Reeds and you can do a lot of the things of that sort of Scotch taping the receiver position together," King said. "But I tell you one thing, that position would really worry me on Labor Day weekend if the Patriots don't have an established receiver added to their stable right now."

 

Asked about oft-criticized Adalius Thomas, King predicted the linebacker will not return to...

Lowell eyes end of week for return

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to his team's Monday game against the Cardinals at City of Palms Park that Mike Lowell hopes to play in a game later in the week. Lowell took another round of batting practice Monday while continuing his comeback from thumb surgery. In other Sox news, Francona noted that Daisuke Matsuzaka might have to push his next bullpen session back from Tuesday to Wednesday due to the team's travel schedule and pitching coach John Farrell's availability. Outfielder Zach Daeges has been moved to the minor league camp to get treatment on a back (lat) injury that has prevented him from swinging throughout spring training.

Schefter: Pats' options 'limited'

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about NFL free agency. Schefter said the Patriots still are in position to retain defensive back Leigh Bodden if they are willing to make the commitment. "They're still in the picture," he said. "It will come down to Houston or New England, and I would imagine we'll get an answer here in relatively short order, although last year Leigh Bodden dragged his feet in free agency, so perhaps he does it again this year."

 

Schefter said New England is not a likely landing spot for Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall. "I have not heard Brandon Marshall's name mentioned in New England," Schefter said, noting that the Patriots already have committed a lot of money to re-sign players on their roster, with Tom Brady likely to get a new deal as well this offseason. This leaves the draft as the main source of...
