Report: Patriots place Richard on IR; pick up Waldron

The Patriots tidied up a few roster odds and ends on Thursday, according to the Boston Globe's Greg Bedard. Here's how it all shook out.
Dustin Waldron was snagged from Miami.Waldron is a 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive tackle who went undrafted out of Portland State. And, no, you're not going crazy; the Patriots did already grab a different O-lineman off of the Dolphins waiver pile this morning.
Jamey Richard was put on IR.The GC left New England's July 29 practice with a concussion -- not the first of his career. Richard's season is officially over.
Nick McDonald passed his physical.The reserve CG will be taken off the ActivePUP list. The Patriots are clearly looking to bolster the offensive line and getting McDonald back as soon as possible will help.

Grab Bag: Who’s the best Boston sports athlete to wear No. 5?

In a game of Grab Bag, Trenni Kusnierek and Gary Tanguay discuss the best player to wear No. 5 in Boston sports history. They also touch on what the biggest rip-off is in Foxboro: Tom Brady’s $200 cookbook or $40 parking at Gillette?

“I hate that cookbook so much. It’s just emblematic of everything that’s wrong with the top one percent,” said Trenni Kusnierek. “Take that avocado ice cream and shove it. I’m gonna go eat some thick, fatty custard.”

Brady might say Trenni will 'feel the burn' in her arteries if she doesn’t follow the rules of his cookbook. But, sorry Tom, the far majority of Americans can’t afford to spend a whole paycheck on a book, of all things, nevermind support the diet the book teaches.

At least at Gillette you get to enjoy a football game.
