Pats still working on Maroney, sign Brown
The Patriots haven't finalized a deal with first-round running back Laurence Maroney, the 21st overall pick in April's draft. ,The Patriots open camp tomorrow and the rest of the rookies already in but there's still confidence the deal will get done. Negotiations have not been described as acrimonious. Neither side has divulged what the holdup in negotiations is.
Meanwhile, the Pats agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker Chad Brown, 36. Brown signed with the Pats in May of 2005. His role figured to be as a pass-rusher but the losses of Tedy Bruschi and Ted Johnson pressed him into regular duty inside.
Given Bruschi's return and the hope that Monty Beisel or Ryan Claridge can make an impact inside, Brown now gives third-down depth at outside linebacker -- something the team needs with Willie McGinest gone.
