    From Albert Breer

    Article Sample:

    Brand new Patriots S Brandon Meriweather just stepped to the podium, with the ceremonial No. 1 jersey, and was introduced in person for the first time to the Boston-area press corps.

    In the discussion, Meriweather went over a great deal of the process in becoming a Patriot, from beginning to end.

    After the Senior Bowl and combine workouts, the team started zeroing in on the Hurricane DB, twice sending reps to the Coral Gables campus to work him out and get to know him. Meriweather said yesterday that he met with three different guys on the two visits, and one of them was Bill Belichick.

    To the prospect, that affirmed a serious interest in using a first-round pick on him. But what really stuck out was happened during those meetings.

    “They wanted to know me as a person,” said Meriweather. “To me, personally, I was just taking it as the team really wanted to get to know me. If you were an investor and you were gonna put a lot of money into a lot of stock, you would want to know everything about that stock before you put it in. I understand that the team wanted to get to know you, they have to get to know you for them to put that stock in you.”

    Apparently Meriweather was dressed in a very sharp suit. I can't wait to see the pictures.

    From Reiss:

    Article Sample:
    "This is our favorite time of year, starting again," Robert Kraft said as photographers snapped away and cameras rolled. "This is the 14th time we have the pleasure and opportunity to kick off the beginning of football season, in our mind, by presenting Brandon a No. 1 jersey. And you all see, he's a very sharp dresser -- the pocket square, the whole deal. This guy knows how to dress."

    I really like this kid. If everyone can stay healthy our defensive backfield will be nasty. Will we find out what number he'll be wearing tomorrow?

    He sounds like he gets it and as long as his actions match his words - he will be an outstanding addition to this football team.

    He's better dressed than the boss. I'm not sure if that is good or bad.

    I'm not sure Bob could pull off that suit.

    Meriweather on the other hand looks very cool in it.

    And I'm sure the Krafts were pleased that, once again, they're not dwarfed by their draft pick. (cf Logan Mankins)
