Bodden visits with Chiefs

In a surprising move, the Patriots released Leigh Bodden last Friday.

Now, some not-so-surprising news -- he's visiting with other teams.

CSNNE.com Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran confirmed that Bodden met with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, reported by ESPN. The Chiefs started the season 0-3, but have since won four straight games -- propelling them to a tie for first in the AFC West.

Currently, the Chiefs rank 22nd in the NFL in total defense, giving up 373.6 yards per game. They rank 20th in the league in passing defense, giving up 251.4 yards through the air.

As reported by Tom E. Curran earlier this week, Bodden cleared waivers, which means the Patriots have to pay the remainder of his salary for the rest of the season, making the release that much more confusing.

Hard to believe he couldn't help out against the Steelers.

Brady legal team granted 14-day extension

Tom Brady’s legal team, including recent hire former US Solictor General Ted Olson, have been granted the extension they were seeking for the deadline to file for a rehearing in the Deflategate case. 

Despite the NFL’s opposition - lawyers for the league requested Monday that the motion be denied - the court ruled Tuesday in favor of the NFLPA and Brady. They now have until May 23 to file the request for a rehearing or rehearing en banc with the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which last week reinstated his four-game Deflategate suspension.

Once Team Brady makes the request, the court still has to agree to take up the case again. And while many legal experts speculate the odds of that happening are low, this case has continued to confound observers as it has played out.
