Waters did not report to Patriots training camp

Brian Waters did not report to training camp on Wednesday, reporting day for Patriots veterans. And whether he'll report at all is still up in the air.

"Im not really talking about it, youll have to talk to the Patriots about it," Waters told Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe. "At this moment, Im not really discussing the situation. Right now Im just handling things between me and the team. If they want to talk to you, thats fine but Im not really talking about it.

"Youre just going to have to talk to the team. Im allowing them to handle all the media stuff right now. Were going to do it this way, because its the best way to do it."

That Waters might miss some (or all) of Patriots training camp likely isn't a huge concern for the team. The veteran guard didn't sign with New England until Sept. 4 last year and still made the Pro Bowl.

One reason for a red flag? Waters hinted at retirement in the moments following the Patriots' Super Bowl XLVI loss to the Giants. Since then, he hasn't made an announcement either way about the 2012 season.

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.
