Could this be a gift from Saban to Belichick??

It would make some sense that the Patriots would look at Cody.

For one, his massive frame would create a fit in the New England front. Also, some of his experience in Nick Saban's system would carry over to Belichick's. And then, there's Vince Wilfork's brewing contract situation.

So if the Patriots are to look long-term, Cody could be a consideration. The nose tackle said of the Belichick-Saban connection, "I've thought about it. I mean, it means something, but it doesn't mean that much, because I still gotta show them I can come out here and play."

Speaking of coming out and playing, this week's spotlight player, Tim Tebow, struggled this afternoon, from what I can see. The long, slow, Leftwich-style delivery, and accuracy issues that have already been cited are clearly there, and even in drills, you can see how fond he is of tucking and running and seeking contact, which would be more of a problem in the NFL than it was in college.

We'll keep this stuff coming at you next week. And if there's anyone else on the Senior Bowl roster you'd like me to take a look, hit the comments section and tell me where to go.
