At least one NFL team suspects that Bill Belichick's presence at the UConn Pro Day means the Pats will draft CB Darius Butler with the 23rd overall pick. Check his highlights on YouTube.

Wes Welker is excited to catch passes from Tom Brady once again (saying he was excited to catch Brady's balls just didn't sound right.)

Mike Reiss notes that BenJarvus Green-Ellis is not eligible for the practice squad, and he'll likely be fighting against Laurence Maroney for a roster spot.

Mike Florio of SportingNews.com thinks the Patriots should trade TE Benjamin Watson, even though he won't warrant much in return.

LT Matt Light will take over as the Patriots' player representative, now that LB Mike Vrabel is gone.

PatsFans.com has a discussion about the possibility of the Pats trading a second-round pick for disgruntled WR Chad Ocho Cinco.

Former Pats QB Matt Cassel will wear No. 7 in Kansas City, in case you were wondering.
