FOXBORO -- Richie Incognito spent part of his Monday dedicating a social-media post to Bill Belichick's sideline spike of a Microsoft Surface tablet.
At some point in the first half of New England's 16-0 loss to Buffalo, the Patriots head coach became frustrated to the point that he had a brief outburst that was caught by one of CBS' cameras. Incognito, a player not exactly known for his ability to control his emotions, decided to grab the video of Belichick's "spike," and rub some salt in the coach's wounds.
Of course, Belichick isn't the world's biggest social-media advocate so odds are he never sees Incognito's online taunt. But judging by some of the comments, Incognito's caption for the video succeeded in bugging Patriots fans.
Patriots seven-time Pro Bowl special teamer Matthew Slater is in Pittsburgh on Saturday making a free-agent visit to the rival Steelers, according to an ESPN's Field Yates.
Slater, who turns 33 in September, has spent the past 10 seasons in a New England. The special teams captain and one of the leaders in the locker room signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract extension in 2016.
The Patriots lost special teamer Johnson Bademosi to the Texans in free agency on Friday but signed special teamers Brandon Bolden and Brandon King just before the free agency period began.

Tom Brady has been making the media rounds lately with "Good Morning America" and "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" appearances this past week to promote his "Tom vs. Time" series and TB12 Method book. On Saturday, Brady was a phone-in guest on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me" for their "Not My Job" segment.
Before a mostly cheering live audience in Hartford and after a discussion of the benefits and drawbacks - mostly drawbacks - of tomatoes and strawberries, plus an assessment of the intelligence of most defensive coordinators, Brady settled in to handle three questions about the world's second-most famous Bradys, the family from the classic sitcom - "The Brady Bunch".
