Report: Shiancoe signs one-year deal with Patriots

It was reported earlier in the day that Visanthe Shiancoe was deciding between the Patriots and the Eagles, and that decision could come Tuesday night

It came, and Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole has the decision:

PFT has the details of the contract.

It's obviously too soon to say what Shiancoe's role could be on the Patriots. With Daniel Fells starting training camp on the ActivePUP list, Shiancoe is added insurance at the least, and a very capable veteran presence at the TE position at the most.

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
