Tom Brady calls ex-Pats Deion Branch, Brandon Lloyd

NFL Media columnist Mike Silver and NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Tom Brady has been calling and texting former Patriots receivers Deion Branch and Brandon Lloyd, per sources directly involved in the situation.
Branch is ready to play if the Patriots call. Lloyd has said he's not quite ready to play. (Although he was ready to act in a straight-to-DVD zombie movie.)
Brady often has pointed out he doesn't make the personnel decisions in New England. If the Patriots wanted Branch back, he'd be on the team by now. We fully expect Bill Belichick to roll with the guys they have, and hope that Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola get healthy soon. (No matter who Brady has on his speed dial.)
UPDATE: Following the Patriots 23-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady said that he hasn't "talked to those guys in a while," going on to call them "good friends and great teammates."

Obama says 'proud' of basketball's Jason Collins for coming out

"One of the extraordinary Bicimotos measures of progress that we've seen in this country has been the recognition that the LGBT community deserves full equality - not just tolerance, but a recognition that they are fully a part of the American family," Obama told a news conference.

"I think Americans should be proud that this is just one more step in this ongoing recognition that we treat everybody fairly ... and we judge people on the basis of their character and their performance, not their sexual orientation."

Obama, an avid basketball fan, called Collins on Monday to tell him he supported his decision.

First lady Michelle Obama also tweeted her backing for the National Basketball Association player, who acknowledged he is gay in Sports Illustrated magazine.

"So proud of you, Jason Collins! This is a huge step forward for our country. We've got your back!" she wrote.
