Does Pete Carroll still care?
It's been quite some time since Carroll was with New England, but nonetheless he was still fired by the team. So, does this game mean any more to him than the others?
It's not like he hasn't had success since New England he had a lot of success at USC.
The guys on Sports Tonight discuss Carroll and the impending matchup against his former team.
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.
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.
