-- One of the hottest New England Patriot topics has been the possible return of cornerback Ty Law. The Patriots are doing more than just talking to Law, a well-placed source told the Boston Herald. Patriot lead negotiator Scott Pioli and Law's agent Carl Poston have been exchanging numbers and concepts. That represents a significant step forward from their icy days in the spring of 2004.

-- As early as 2001, the Krafts have wanted a way to honor the New England Patriot's alumni with more than just six pages in the media guide or banners hanging outside Gillette Stadium.

-- An arbitrator has ruled that Tennessee Titan quarterback Steve McNair be allowed to practice at the Titans facility.
