Pollard continues to haunt Patriots

Bernard Pollard.

If you're a Patriots fan, that name is enough to make you sick to your stomach. In fact, if it has, we'll wait...

...

You good?

OK.

Pollard was up to his old tricks of being the cause of Patriots injuries. Years back he was the reason behind Tom Brady's torn ACL. He was also closest to Wes Welker when he went down with a torn ACL. Pollard caused Rob Gronkowski's sprained ankle that limited him in the Super Bowl last year too.

And on Sunday, he crushed Stevan Ridley, literally knocking him out of the Patriots-Ravens game, which caused a game-changing fumble in the process.

Is Pollard to blame for all the injuries? Not directly. But the fact is if not for him, some of them would have been avoided.

Gary Tanguay, Dan Shaughnessy, and Ron Borges discuss their thoughts on Pollard.

Bennett to critics: ‘You take a paycut’

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. 

Report: Belichick may be called to testify in Hernandez trial

Report: Belichick may be called to testify in Hernandez trial

Bill Belichick, identified as "William Belichick," has been added to the list of potential defense witnesses who could testify during the upcoming double-homicide trial of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, according to the Boston Herald.

Per the Herald, the new list of potential witnesses for the defense also includes Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who was Hernandez's teammate at the University of Florida. 

Belichick, McDaniels and Pouncey aren't guaranteed to testify, but their presence on the civilian witness list makes their presence in court a possibility. 

Hernandez's trial is scheduled to start next Wednesday. He's accused of killing Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Furtado back in July of 2012. Hernandez is currently serving a life sentence after being convicted of the murder Odin Lloyd in 2013.
