Shanahan: Haynesworth trade 'easy' choice

FOXBORO -- From the success of Tim Tebow to the demise of Albert Haynesworth in New England, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan provided some candid insight Wednesday on conference call with the New England media. As the coach who traded Haynesworth to the Patriots in July, Shanahan told reporters he was hardly surprised with the way his brief tenure ended in New England. 

Shanahan was asked about Haynesworth just after speaking highly of another former player in his system, Andre Carter, who left Washington after last season for a better deal and system in New England. Shanahan said Carter was willing to try and adapt to a 3-4 system whereas Haynesworth was not. 

"That was completely different," Shanahan began. "You talk about guy like Andre Carter, who was the most accountable guy you could be around. He's a pro. With Albert, it didn't take long to figure out you have everybody buys into a system and it didn't take long to...

Farrell on M&M: 'I'm committed to Toronto'

Blue Jays manager John Farrell joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday afternoon from the winter meetings in Dallas. Following his four-year stint as Red Sox pitching coach, Farrell finished his first season as Jays manager with an 81-81 record.

Farrell was rumored to be the Red Sox' top choice to replace Terry Francona this offseason, but Farrell said he never regretted going to Toronto.

"Not at all," he said. "When opportunities come up, they arise sometimes out of nowhere. I've never been one that while you're doing your current job, that you look elsewhere. I think becomes a complete distraction. I think it's a disservice and disrespect to the people that you work for. Who would have known what took place this past year? And that wouldn't have been the reason to either stay or go elsewhere. I felt like it was a great opportunity to join … that [Blue Jays] staff and to join a club that I think, you know what? Yeah, the...

NFL: Pats won't be flexed vs. Tebow

Despite much speculation to the contrary, the Patriots will not be flexed out of their 4:15 ET slot on Dec. 18 when they play Tim Tebow and the Broncos in Denver, the NFL announced on Wednesday afternoon.  

The initial deadline for CBS and NBC to decide on whether to switch the game to an 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff was Tuesday but the NFL extended it to Wednesday. The game will remain on CBS and the Ravens and Chargers in San Diego will remain the primetime game that night on NBC. 

Asked specificially during his Wednesday press conference whether or not the uncertainty of the game bothered him, Bill Belichick dismissed the subject out of hand.  

"I don’t really care about the Broncos game right now," Belichick said. "I’m worried about the Washington game. I don’t really care about it. When they tell us to play, we’re going to show up and play the game. When it happens, it happens. Right now, I...

Pats practice: Ridley, Vollmer, Spikes absent

FOXBORO --  The trio of rookie running back Stevan Ridley, right tackle Sebastian Vollmer and linebacker Brandon Spikes were not spotted at Patriots practice indoors at the Dana Farber Field House as the team began on-field preparations for the Redskins this Sunday in Washington.

Vollmer injured his right foot in the Eagles game on Nov. 27 and missed last Sunday's game against the Colts while Spikes injured his right knee in the loss to the Giants on Nov. 6 and hasn't played since. 

The team practiced in full pads for the first time in three weeks. Linebacker Dane Fletcher was back on the practice field, his first practice in pads in over a month after requiring multiple surgeries on his thumb, the Boston Globe reported.

WR Dickerson signed to Pats practice squad

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have signed wide receiver Dorin Dickerson, 23, to their practice squad, taking the place of Nick McDonald, who was signed off the practice squad last week to start at center. Dickerson also fills the role of Tiquan Underwood, who was promoted two weeks ago and takes the spot of wide receiver Taylor Price, who was released last week to make room for McDonald on the active roster. Price was picked up this week by the Jaguars.

Dickerson is a second-year player who was originally drafted by the Texans in the seventh round (227th overall) out of Pittsburgh in 2010. As a rookie, he played in seven games mainly on special teams. Dickerson, 6-foot-2, 227 pounds, was released by Houston on Sept. 3, 2011 and was then signed to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ practice squad on Sept. 12 before being released on Sept. 15. During his college career, he played at wide receiver, linebacker and tight end.
