Jarrad Page, a safety for the Patriots last season who signed with Philly prior to this year, is available to any suitor. Released by the Eagles on Tuesday after making 37 tackles in six games, the 27-year-old cleared waivers. Page was a quality locker room guy who had two picks for the Patriots last year after being acquired from the Chiefs via trade. He had12 tackles and played special teams for the Pats. He was with the Chiefs for three seasons before being dealt to New England last September. The Patriots are currently running with a banged-up Patrick Chung and James Ihedigbo at safety. When Chung was hurt last week, Sterling Moore came in and played capably. Sergio Brown was not impressive when his number came up. Ross Ventrone, the on-again, off-again Patriot was re-signed to the team's practice squad this week. A message for Page hasn't been immediately returned.
Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.
"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.
"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.
Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
Former NFL player Dan Koppen says the team locker room after a win is a sacred place and that Steelers WR Antonio Brown should know not to be posting on Facebook.
