Felger: 'Disgrace' for Portnoy to wish bodily harm on Goodell

Mike Felger spends as little time on the internet as he has to. Told that Dave Portnoy has discussed wishing bodily harm on Roger Goodell, Felger said such talk is a “disgrace.”  

“Really?” Felger said. “Has Portnoy said that or written that? Show me the posts, because if he has, that’s a disgrace. That’s a joke. And I like Dave, but that’s stupid. Grow up. Really? Show me what he’s written. If that’s true, that is an absolute disgrace. 

“You should boo the guy, you should call him any name in the book and he should sit there on the field for a couple minutes and take it. And then it should be over. Good God.”

Belichick: Gronkowski 'doesn't have any limits that I know of'

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski's health is one of the lone obvious concerns facing the Patriots as they begin training camp this week, but even that doesn't seem to be much of an issue at the moment. 

Asked about Gronkowski on Thursday, Bill Belichick said that the tight end "doesn't have any limits that I know of." 

Gronkowski had season-ending back surgery -- his third such procedure -- after taking part in just seven plays during a Week 12 win over the Jets. The Patriots got by with Martellus Bennett and Matt Lengel as their top two tight ends for the remainder of the season.

Belichick's most recent comments don't come as a major shock since Gronkowski participated fully during OTAs, but they are an indication that even when pads are introduced later in camp, Gronkowski will be prepared to take part in contact drills. 

Any time the words "Gronkowski" and "full participant" happen to appear in the same sentence -- as it appears they will early in camp -- that's obviously very good news for the Patriots.
