James Harrison didn't spend too much time in New England.

The longtime Steelers linebacker arrived in Foxborough the day after Christmas and retired shortly after the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles.

But a little more than a month of time as a Patriot had a clear impact on Harrison, especially his thoughts of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the way the team takes care of its business.

The Boston Globe writes about the NFL halting the implementation of its new anthem policy.

The Boston Herald says history is not on New England's side as it attempts to return to the Super Bowl after a loss in the big game. The Herald writes that the Patriots linebackers are still under scrutiny when it comes to their ability to cover opposing running backs. TheHerald lso has Harrison comparing the Patriots and the Steelers.

The Providence Journal observes that Patriots practice squad receiver Riley McCarron fits a familiar profile in New England.

WEEI.com passes on a report that Julian Edelman will apparently not appeal his 4-game suspension any further and will serve it over the first month of the season. WEEI.com also has Harrison's comments. WEEI.com resets the offseason with a look at the Patriots best and worst moves.
