Morning News & Notes – 4/5

Keyshawn Johnson found himself on the trading block after saying if he didn’t get a new deal with the Jets, he’d hold out until they paid him the money he felt he deserved. It appears that move is sending shock waves that reach all the way back here to New England.

According to a report in this morning’s Boston Globe, Glenn and his agent, James Gould, have asked the Patriots for a new multi-year deal for Glenn. Like Keyshawn Johnson, Glenn has two years remaining on his current contract.

Gould expects to talk with the Patriots this week.

“We’ll definitely know more by the end of the week,” Gould told the Globe. “To this point there’s been a spirit of cooperation between Terry and the team. My sense was the Patriots were genuinely taking the request seriously.”

Glenn is scheduled to earn $2.3 million this season, which includes a $200,000 reporting bonus and a $56,000 workout bonus. His pay next season is around $2.4 million, with a base of $1.2 million and a reporting bonus of $1.13 million, as well as a workout bonus.

The team signed Troy Brown to a five-year, $12.5 million deal this year, and he is currently the Patriots highest paid receiver. Glenn says he doesn’t mind having the duties of being the go-to guy, but would like to be paid as such.

Last season was the first year in which Glenn finished without an injury since 1996, and he also hasn’t played a complete season since that year as well. Under new head coach Bill Belichick, Glenn appears to be ready for a new start. He reported to the offseason program and is participating regularly unlike in past years where he worked out back in Ohio at Ohio State.

2000 SCHEDULE RELEASED

The NFL released the 2000 schedule yesterday, and New England doesn’t look like a team that finished in last place. They play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to open the season, and play other tough teams including the Minnesota Vikings, Denver at Mile High Stadium, and they have also landed a Thanksgiving day contest in Detroit against the Lions.

WOODY OVERWEIGHT

Second-year center Damien Woody, who battled weight problems at Boston College, apparently is battling the same problem this spring.

Woody went up and down with his weight during his rookie season with the Pats, and strength coach Mike Woicik told the Boston Herald that Woody needs to shed some weight.

“He has to lose some weight,” Woicik told the Herald. “He’s here working out, so we’ll see how he looks later on.”

After the draft last year, many people said that the closer Woody gets to 300 pounds, the more effective he is. He was listed at 319 last season.
