Chad Brown to Patriots?

Still on vacation, but taking a quick peek in…see you Monday.

Dan Pires of the Standard Times found this tidbit and passed it along:

Saints Miss out on Brown

The Saints made a hard push for veteran linebacker Chad Brown, recently cut loose by the Seattle Seahawks.

The New England Patriots have landed Brown, GM Mickey Loomis said today. Loomis told NOPF's Kenny Wilkerson and Vince Marinello on WWL 870am this afternoon that Brown called him personally to report that he was going to sign with New England.

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
