New England Patriots: The club is speaking with CB Ty Law about restructuring his existing deal which counts more than $10 million towards the 2004 cap, but so far all they've done is anger the Pro Bowler. The team's first proposal to Law was a four-year, $26 million extension that includes $6.6 million up front -- an offer Law considers to be an insult. "I felt like it was a slap in the face," Law told the Boston Globe. "It was an insult. I didn't appreciate it at all. I thought, `Man, we've got a long way to go if that's the starting off point.' I was thinking of putting a `for sale' sign in front of my house ...I couldn't believe it. I was speechless. It was disappointing more than anything. It kind of hurt."
New Orleans Saints: RB Deuce McAllister was involved in an altercation at a Bourbon Street bar on Fat Tuesday, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. No one was arrested and the NOPD is investigating the incident. "We are trying to find out what actually happened," said New Orleans police spokesman Paul Accardo. The Saints haven't done their own investigation but they have spoken to McAllister and are backing their star back. "From what we understand, Deuce was trying to mediate the situation and ended up being a victim," GM Mickey Loomis said. "We are 100 percent in his corner."
