|Highlights from Peter King Q&A with Dale and Holley||05.27.09 at 12:05 pm ET|
Thanks to Greg Cameron, here are some highlights from the Peter King Q&A with Dale & Holley, which took place Wednesday morning. (For the complete interview, click here.)
•King thought that Brady looked “absolutely normal” on the field this week. He couldn’t have noticed a difference between the OTA and the past.
•As King talked to Brady for SI, he believed that Brady was “bursting at the seams, ready to talk.” He also talked about Brady’s reaction to all of the stories and stuff surrounding him. According to King, Brady has made “rules and boundaries” with regards to the media circus that follows his everyday life.
•King also said that Brady doesn’t care very much about what the public thinks of him.
•Can Brady still bring it? King was told by Brady that he plans on playing another ten years in the NFL. He likened Brady to another Super Bowl-winning QB in Phil Simms who once said “I’ll play until they rip the uniform off of me.” King believes such will be the case with Brady.
|Lenon signs with Patriots||05.27.09 at 10:15 am ET|
WEEI.com has confirmed a report that linebacker Paris Lenon has signed with the Patriots.
“Paris is excited to finally be a part of a winning organization and eager to contribute in whatever way Coach Belichick and his staff see fit,” said Lenon’s agent, Jon Persch in an e-mail to WEEI.com. “Now quite simply, he’s eager to go to work.”
Lenon, a 31-year-old middle linebacker, is a Richmond product who has played seven years in the NFL — four years with the Packers (2002-2005) and three with the Lions (2006-2008). The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder had a career year last season with Detroit, finishing with 121 tackles at the middle linebacker spot with the Lions.
In Detroit, he was the middle linebacker in Detroit’s 4-3 defensive scheme. With the Patriots, he projects as an inside linebacker, and will join a group that includes Jerod Mayo, Tedy Bruschi and Gary Guyton.

According to multiple reports, the Patriots also hosted linebacker Paris Lenon on a visit this afternoon at Gillette Stadium. The news of Lenon’s visit coincides with a report by the Chicago Tribune that New England played host to linebacker Piso Tinoisamoa today.
Lenon, a 31-year-old middle linebacker, who’s played in Detroit the last three years. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder out of Richmond spent the first four seasons of his career with the Packers before signing a three-year deal with the Lions in March 2006. His 2008 season was his best — he finished that year with 121 tackles at the middle linebacker spot with Detroit.

|Report: Tinoisamoa visits Pats||05.26.09 at 5:17 pm ET|
According to this report in the Chicago Tribune, free agent linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is visiting with the Patriots Tuesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Tinoisamoa, a Hawaii product, has spent six years in the NFL, all of them with St. Louis. For his career, he’s played in 84 regular-season games, and has 10 sacks and seven interceptions. The 27-year-old linebacker led the Rams in tackles last season with 104, as well as three sacks. He was released by the Rams on May 8.
It’s believed the Patriots, who traded Mike Vrabel to Kansas City earlier in the offseason, are in the market for a veteran linebacker, and Tinoisamoa may fill the bill. New England has inquired about Oakland defensive end/linebacker hybrid Derrick Burgess, and have reportedly expressed interest in Greg Ellis of Dallas.
Tinoisamoa has also visited execs in Chicago and Buffalo.
