Brady does his best Ron Burgundy impression to call on receivers


Brady does his best Ron Burgundy impression to call on receivers

It looks like Tom Brady has put away his surfboard and is ready to get to work.

In a video the Patriots quarterback posted on Facebook on Thursday, he did his best Ron Burgundy impression, grabbed a conch shell and looked for Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan, Keshawn Martin, Nate Washington, Chris Harper and Aaron Dobson to come find him on the beach.

The caption to Brady's video read: "RECEIVERS...ASSEMBLE!!!"

Brady's horn blast didn't work quite as well as it did for Will Ferrell's character in the movie Anchorman, but maybe his teammates are just a little slower to respond than the Channel 4 news team.

Edelman responded with his own Facebook post that included Amendola.

The good news for Brady and his receivers is that they have plenty of time to hone their communication level between now and training camp. The Patriots offseason program begins on April 18.

Eric Ebron signs two-year deal with Colts

Former Lions tight end Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ebron was rumored to be a potential target for the Patriots, especially after new Pats running back Jeremy Hill tried recruiting him to the team.

The 24-year-old had 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns a season ago with Detroit.

Patriots release Shea McClellin

Shea McClellin will be blocking kicks for somebody else next season. 

The Patriots announced Monday they've released the veteran linebacker, ending his tenure with the team after two seasons.  ESPN's Field Yates broke the news.

The Pats signed McClellin to a three-year deal prior to the 2016 season, but that was the only season in which he played for the team. McClellin missed all of last season due to injury. Prior to coming to New England, McClellin played four seasons with the Bears, who chose him 19th overall in 2012. 

McClellin's biggest contribution with the Pats came when he blocked a Justin Tucker kick in Week 14 of the 2016 season against the Ravens.
