08:02 AM ET 06.03 | On the condition of anonymity, scouts are often capable of filling a notebook, which was the case recently when one was asked about the Patriots and Randy Moss. "I was surprised the Patriots did not address the receiver position in the draft. The offense was not the same without Randy Moss. I would guess they have a plan to address the position once the league opens. If you look at who is out there, there are a couple guys that would make a lot of sense. Bill (Belichick) could help Chad Ochocinco the way he did Corey Dillon. ... Santonio Holmes would look good in New England. Sidney Rice would fit the bill, but with the new rules, he might not be able to go anywhere. (Panthers WR) Steve Smith would be great in New England. He could stretch the field. There are going to be some good options out there."

<The offense was not the same without Randy Moss.>


Nah. It was just more balanced and Brady threw fewer INT's. That's all.

I don't think Little Bill is interested in putting up with Chad Johnson's shenanigans...

Obviously the article was written by a paid staffer of Randy Moss. Who else would say something so ridiculous. In this case, "wasn't the same without him" should really be, "thank God the Vikings were stupid enough to pay us for this jackwagon".

Morning Otis, congrats to your Mavs. Way to embarass the Big 3 in South Beach. I love it!

Looked bleak down 15... and looked bleak when they gave up a 9-0 run to the Heat with Lebron on the bench at the end of the first half.

We have a series now and it's gonna be an interesting week in Big D.

"Bill (Belichick) could help Chad Ochocinco". Umm, no he couldn't. No one could. No one I say!

Maybe he could help him find his car?

"Yeah, Chad, I see it. It's the only one in the lot. Sorry nobody came to your autograph signing."

If the Vikings lose Rice, they are truly Fracked!

Can't blame him.

Belicick is good, but Jesus would have a tough time with Chad

Even with Rice, they are truly Fracked. Is there anything about the Vikes that gives anyone reason to hope? Other than fans of other NFC North teams, I mean?

The one I feel sorry for is A.P., as long as he's there he has zero chance at a ring.

roofing contractors?

Again, You put a gag order on Jim Harbaugh. Why not the rest of the league, we now have people talking for people, big deal. Tell all free agents that they nor their agent or friends may comment on their eventual relocation.

I hope he's getting good investment advice. When his contract is up, they'll franchise him, and by the time he's a free agent he'll be over the hill.

But then, T&R would have nothing but Police Blotter to report on.

Sidney is going to demand quite a bit of paper for his services. Can the Pats shell out that type of dough because I'm quite certain the Vikes will.

June 3, 2011  09:18 AM ET

I think the Patriots are content with not having an elite WR.....and signing Rice may lose progression of Taylor Price or Brandon Tate. If they spend big money...let it be on Logan Mankins' new contract
