Patriots sign OL Jamey Richard

A source confirms reports the Patriots have signed OL Jamey Richard. The move maxes out the roster to its 90-man limit.

Richard is a 6-5, 295-pound former seventh round pick by the Colts in 2008. He started 11 of the 48 games he played in four seasons, playing both center (filling in while Jeff Saturday recovered from a knee injury) and left guard.

He had surgery to repair his left hip labrum in February of 2011. Inconsistency seems to limit his playing time more than injuries.

There's some need in New England, as Logan Mankins is missing OTAs to recover from knee surgery and Brian Waters likely won't show up until training camp. Free agent acquisition Robert Gallery stood in for Mankins and Ryan Wendell for Waters in Thursday morning's session.

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan cherished sacking Tom Brady. He embraced mere contact with the New England Patriots quarterback.

Strahan, who sacked Brady three times during his NFL career with the New York Giants, discussed how he felt when he got the opportuntiy to bring down Brady.

“You’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady. Not just Brady but any quarterback," Strahan told WWD in a story published Wednesday. “Like, you hit a guy, hit a grown man, and you hear the life and the breath leave his body. There’s something very empowering about that. Then, you hit Brady, you sack him and you land on Brady. And you get up and you’re, like, ‘Boy, I see what Gisele is feeling. You know, I just laid down with Tom Brady. That was cool.'”

It sounds like Strahan may enjoy sacking Brady a little too much. But his abiltiy to get to Brady in the Super Bowl did help swing the result in the Giants' favor, so perhaps that's a part of why he has such fond memories of being atop Brady.
