In today's news blitz, we catch up with wide receiver Troy Brown to find out his status for the 2007 season.  Plus, we take a look at a recent charitable event held by former Patriots QB Doug Flutie. It's all in today's News Blitz.

For the third straight year, Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown's return is not guaranteed.

"My intention is to play. I'm not writing anything in stone but my intentions are to play," Brown responded earlier this offseason when asked about his status for the 2007 season.

Brown, who still has a locker at Gillette Stadium is currently rehabbing a torn patellar tendon in his knee according to the Boston Herald and is not yet ready for football activities, though he did attend the recent Patriots Charitable Golf Tournament.

Should Brown return to the team, he'll be competing with a crowded wide receiver core with new additions Randy Moss, Donté Stallworth, Wes Welker and Kelley Washington as well as Reche Caldwell, Jabar Gaffney and Chad Jackson.
