A few links from around the Web with a Patriots twist:
1. Green-Ellis & history of Bengals' backs. In a piece on Bengals.com, former Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis talks about the history of productive Bengals rushers and hopefully joining that group. He also noted that while he didn't have a lot of receptions in New England, he feels like he can be a contributor as a pass-catcher. "There's a difference between not being able to catch and not being thrown to," he said.
2. Three-year deal for Green-Ellis. The Cincinnati Enquirer notes it's a three-year deal for Green-Ellis, with terms undisclosed. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said of Green-Ellis: "[He] hasn’t been asked to do a whole lot because he’s been playing behind the greatest quarterback in NFL history in Tom Brady. BenJarvus can suit many different styles and he is a consistent performer. He can run inside or outside, he can catch and he can get you the tough yards."
3. Parcells on Erhardt. Former Patriots coach Ron Erhardt's obituary in the New York Times includes comments from Bill Parcells.
4. Video: Anderson recaps free-agent journey. On BuffaloBills.com, the official website of the Bills, former Patriots defensive end Mark Anderson talks about the talent assembled on the Buffalo defense and how it could help the team compete in the AFC East.
