Brady spotted jumping off cliff in Costa Rica


Brady spotted jumping off cliff in Costa Rica

Tom Brady made some ripples jumping off a cliff in Costa Rica last week.

Now, those little waves are big waves, since TMZ has pictures of Brady on his vacation, including one of his terrifying, death-defying plunges into the water (pictured).
Let's be honest: If this wasn't Tom Brady it wouldn't be news. You don't want Brady putting himself or the competitiveness of the team in jeopardy by doing something irresponsible, but it doesn't seem like that's the case here.

Players have restrictions on what they can and cannot do while under contract, but it's hard to believe an act like the one Brady committed is covered under the "DO NOT ATTEMPT" section of the agreement.

That didn't stop reporters from asking Patriots coach Bill Belichick about the pictures. And it didn't stop Belichick from responding in typical Belichick fashion.

There are NFL rules and then there are club rules, and those are handled between the club or the league and the players, Belichick said. "Im not going to comment on any of our club rules. Any discipline we have is handled internally.

But far be it from Belichick to keep Brady away from the water. History proves that when it comes to water, there's no slowing him down.

Patriots-Steelers injury report: Seven Pats listed as questionable


Patriots-Steelers injury report: Seven Pats listed as questionable

FOXBORO -- The Patriots will head into Sunday's AFC title game with seven players listed as questionable, including three receivers. 

Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan have all been limited in practices this week due to their injuries. Amendola has been dealing with an ankle issue since a Week 13 win over the Rams, while Mitchell has not played since injuring his knee in Week 16 against the Jets. Hogan suffered a thigh injury against the Texans and left the game in the third quarter.

Both Hogan and Mitchell indicated this week that they were moving in the right direction in terms of their recoveries. One would think that the Patriots would need at least one, if not both, to help stress the back end of the Steelers secondary this weekend.

Hogan has been the team's most consistent down-the-field threat this season, averaging a whopping 17.9 yards per catch during the regular season. Against the Texans, before his injury, he reeled in four passes for 95 yards. 

Mitchell, meanwhile, had a very productive second half of his rookie season before he was hurt. He compiled 25 catches for 306 yards between Weeks 11 and 16, establishing himself as one of Tom Brady's go-to targets. 

The overall health of the Patriots receiving corps -- which will also include Julian Edelman and Michael Floyd -- will bear watching when the Patriots and Steelers kick off in two days.
