News Blitz 6/11: Dustin Keller a better TE fit than Jermichael Finley?

The News Blitz gets you up-to-date on the latest Patriots news from local and national media.


Phil Perry of believes that if both free agents are healthy, Dustin Keller would be a better tight end option for the Patriots than Jermichael Finley.

Sid Saraf]( of FOX Sports calls both Tom Brady and Bill Belichick locks for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Brady probably made the right choice." READ MORE>>

David Steele]( of Sporting News ranks Bill Belichick as the best coach in the NFL.

"It's going to be a long time before any coach is able to dislodge him from the top, even if he never wins another Super Bowl," writes Steele. "What makes him special, heading into Year 15 in New England: You can hardly remember the last time the Patriots began a season without being one of the favorites to win it all. Tom Brady or not, that's indescribably hard to do." READ MORE>>
