The attorney for Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather scoffed at a report on SIRIUS Radio that Meriweather was indeed the shooter during the February 27 incident in Apopka, Florida. "There have been articles on that since the first day this came to light," said Adam Swickle, Meriweather's Fort Lauderdale-based attorney. "I can't stop people from saying 'credible sources tell me this'or this, that and the other. I can't comment on every person's allegation of what they believe to be credible.
"I stand by my comments and my involvement in the case from last week. I'm still in the process of investigating and the police are as well. Whenever their investigation is complete, I'm sure they'll have something to add. I leave that up to them, what they do with their case. I don't step on toes. I'll just say there's nothing new to report from when I spoke with the media last week."SIRIUS Radio's Dino Costa said Thursday night that an "impeccable source" told him that Meriweather was the shooter. Mike Florio has all the info on that right here. Meriweather, meanwhile, is in South Florida. He refused to delve into the case with Boston Globe reporter Bob Hohler, who was in Apopka this week.

Football is coming.
The Patriots announced on Thursday that veterans will report to training camp on Wednesday, July 26 and that the first public practice will take place the following day.
Each of the team's first four practices -- from July 27-30 -- are scheduled to take place on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium "in the nine o'clock hour," according to the Patriots. Updates to the training camp schedule, including more specific start times for practices, can be found at patriots.com/trainingcamp.
The Patriots Hall of Fame will hold its induction ceremony for former corner Raymond Clayborn on Saturday, July 29 around midday following that morning's training camp practice. Held on the plaza outside the Hall at Patriot Place, the ceremony will be free and open to the public.
The Patriots will host the Jaguars for two days of joint practices open to the public on Monday, Aug. 7 and Tuesday, Aug. 8. The preseason opener for both clubs will take place at Gillette Stadium on Aug. 10.
Tom Brady's off-the-field workout habits are the subject of serious curiosity for those in New England and beyond. Thanks to Under Armour's Instagram account, followers got a brief glimpse of what Brady does to stay in shape.
OK. It was more like a glimpse at what he did one day in Tokyo.
The video of Brady in the dohyo ring was shot at the Sakaigawa sumo stable in Tokyo on Thursday. According to Kyodo News, leading the training session was ozeki Goeido, who won last year's Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.
"For them to welcome me means very much to me. It's hard to describe in words how special that was," Brady said.
Brady bounced around China before heading to Japan to continue to help promote Under Armour and in particular its "recovery sleepwear" line. He threw a pass on the Great Wall, and he explained that it was his "dream" to play a game on the continent.
