Cal's Cam Jordan runs 4.71

We told you how impressed we were with Cal's Cam Jordan while we were at the NFL Combine in Indy. Now back at the home office in Lakeville, Mass with the TV tuned to the NFL Network's Combine coverage, Jordan keeps impressing. Monday morning, Jordan ran a 4.71 in the 40 (unofficially). To chug like that at 6-4, 284 is impressive. I spent some time over the weekend with Jordan's father, Steve, a former Pro Bowl tight end with the Vikings. Steve went to Brown University and it was clear in talking to him that he believes his son will be able to make a quick transition to NFL life on-field and off. Jordan, I'm hearing, is absolutely a player the Patriots have on their radar. And most every team had to be happy when they heard Jordan tell media on Saturday, "It puts a smile on me to hit a quarterback and hear the wind coming out of his chest."

Bennett to critics: ‘You take a paycut’

Martellus Bennett is as good at Twitter as he is at football. Add to that the fact that all eyes are on whether the free agent will stay in New England and the @MartysaurusRex account becomes a must-follow. 

On Wednesday, Bennett put his powers to good use and shared a glimpse into his line of thinking regarding free agency.

Bennett, who could very well leave the Pats for more money, responded to a criticism of his desire to get paid and followed it with several more musings.
