The myriad of Deflategate lies in one handy article

The myriad of Deflategate lies in one handy article

If your Deflategate indignation is ebbing, there are any number of ways to ratchet it back up. You’ve got the Wells Report in Context, a gallery of Ted Wells photos, a graph charting Roger Goodell’s salary  or revisiting a couple of instances where cardboard cutout Troy Vincent decided to offer an opinion without first checking with someone.

Add to those the recently compiled “56 Lies the NFL Told During Deflategate” from Bruce Allen at Boston Sports Media Watch.

It’s a handy guide for tapping into dormant agitation. From allowing NFL counsel Jeff Pash to edit the purportedly independent Wells Report to misleading the public about whether the NFL or the Patriots suspended Jon Jastremski and Jim McNally, all the misdirections, exaggerations and outright lies are housed therein.

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.
