Bill Belichick reflects on Tom Brady’s 200th win: ‘I feel very fortunate to have been able to coach him’: During a weekly radio appearance, Bill Belichick gave his opinion on Tom Brady winning 200 games. “I enjoy coaching him every day of every week. He’s very competitive. He puts the team first. He tries to what we ask him to do to win and we win quite a few games. 200 wins is a lot of win,” he said. Belichick also named the one quarterback he would want besides Brady. (WEEI)

I hope I don’t have to deal with it much longer. I might be the fastest 39-year-old healer you know,” he said. Brady added that he regretted being unable to practice and prepare last week. (NESN)


6 ‘can’t-touch’ players that could be the key to a Chris Sale trade: Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that in speaking with a general manager recently, the asking price for White Sox lefthander Chris Sale is “through the roof.” The same source also said that given Sale’s caliber, the request was not entirely unreasonable, although others doubted that their asking price would be met. Rosenthal mentions that the Red Sox are one team that has interest in Sale. (Fox Sports)
