Mike Reiss has this, but here is the link: LINK It says: New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick telephoned Gophers offensive coordinator Mitch Browning to tell him how impressive ex-Gophers running back Laurence Maroney was during a recent minicamp. Maroney, who wore jersey No. 22 at Minnesota but will wear No. 39 for the Patriots, was New England's first-round draft pick (No. 21 overall). "(Belichick) said it's been a long time since he's had a running back accelerate through the hole like Maroney," Browning said Thursday. "He also said Laurence has fit in well with the other players."
