FOXBORO ‚ÄĒ Gerard Warren had an explicit instruction for his agent this offseason.
‚ÄúI told him, ‚ÄėCall me after you talk to New England,‚Äô‚ÄĚ Warren said. ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt want to burn any bridges, but that‚Äôs pretty much what it boiled down to. I told him I wanted to come back to New England because I knew what the purpose was here.‚ÄĚ
Patriots coach Bill Belichick announced on Monday that the team had re-signed Warren, a veteran defensive lineman who started 10 regular-season games for New England last season, registering 3.5 sacks.

FOXBOROUGH ‚Äď Chad Ochocinco is changing his ways. And he‚Äôs not making any apologies for it.
To those Twitter followers who claim that the Patriots wide receiver has toned down his activity, Ochocinco has a clear response.
‚ÄúYou have to do it the Patriot Way, the way things are always done here,‚ÄĚ Ochocinco said after Tuesday‚Äôs practice at Gillette Stadium. ‚ÄúOne thing about this city, man, and their sports, all they do is win. So that stuff that I did in the past, there‚Äôs no need for it.‚ÄĚ
BRISTOL, Ct. ‚ÄĒ Suddenly, the offense is a concern for Cumberland American manager Dave Belisle.
‚ÄúVery concerned,‚ÄĚ Belisle stressed after CALL managed just two hits in a 3-0 loss to defending New England champion Fairfield (Ct.) American Tuesday afternoon at Breen Field. The defeat leaves Cumberland American at 1-2 in pool play and in must-win territory heading into Wednesday morning‚Äôs contest against Vermont‚Äôs Barre Community.
WOONSOCKET ‚ÄĒ One by one, they file past the chow line to pick up a ham sandwich and some soup served up in paper plates and Styrofoam cups. Many vanish after picking up the free meal, while others enjoy a seat at one of the picnic tables under the gazebo at nearby Veterans Memorial Park.
But it's no picnic for Suzanne Billington. It may be her only meal of the day.
‚ÄúI'm homeless,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúI actually live in a tent in the woods.‚ÄĚ
She's not the only one. The organization that provides this basic relief to some of the city's most destitute citizens is on the street, too. Literally.
