Fred Taylor back at Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Running back Fred Taylor returned to Patriots practice on Friday on the upper practice fields outdoors. Taylor has missed the last seven games since injuring his right ankle against Baltimore on Oct. 4 at Gillette Stadium. He had surgery shortly after the injury to repair ligaments in the ankle, according to the Florida Times-Union. For the second straight day, practice was held in full pads and helmets. Only safety Bret Lockett was missing from practice as the Patriots get ready to take on the Dolphins at Land Shark Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m. For more, visit the football blog at It Is What It Is

Report: Scutaro's contract terms

ESPN.com's Buster Olney is reporting that Marco Scutaro will receive a guaranteed $12.5 million for two years, with the chance to push the deal to $17 million. According to Olney, Scutaro will receive a $1 million signing bonus and salaries of $5 million each in the next two seasons. There is then a mutual option that would allow the Sox to pick up Scutaro for a third year at $6 million. If the Sox decline their option, then Scutaro could either exercise a $3 million player option, or he could take a $1.5 million buyout.

 

So, based on Olney's report:

 

  • If the Sox exercise Scutaro's third-year team option, he would receive $17 million over three years.
  • If the Sox decline their team option, and Scutaro exercises his third-year player option, he would receive $14 million over three years.
  • If both Scutaro and the Sox decline their...

Schefter on D&C: Weis won't return

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Schefter said not to expect fired Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis to return to the Patriots this year, and probably not next year, either. Said Schefter: "Let's be real here. How's he coming back this year? That's not happening. That's absurd. To come back next year ... Could it happen? Sure. Anything could happen. Every staff turns over. But I can tell you, I've talked to a lot of different people this week. I have not gotten any indication from anybody that I've spoken to that Charlie Weis is on the Patriots' radar for next year. Certainly not this year. Next year? Look, it's possible. ... Could he join the Patriots? Sure, he could. He's beloved in that area. They hold him in high regard in the Patriots orginazation. But they have no plans to go out and hire Charlie Weis."

 

Schefter said that despite the Patriots' loss to...

Watson on D&C: Need a road win

Patriots tight end Ben Watson made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning and admitted that, like Vikings star Adrian Peterson, he once traveled 109 mph — in a minivan while in high school in South Carolina.

 

Asked about how it is that the Patriots don't seem to have many off-field troubles, Watson said: "I think it's maybe a combination of good luck but also discipline. I think everyone on our team really understands what it means to be on this team. ... I think everybody kind of buys in."

 

Watson has put Monday's loss to the Saints behind him and is focused the Patriots getting their first win in a true road game this season when they visit Miami on Sunday. Said Watson: "We haven't won a game on the road in a hostile environment. That's something that we need to start doing, especially in this last stretch of the season."

 

To listen to the...
