BOSTON (AP) -- New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick says
he's in no rush to sign a new quarterback. Belichick spoke Tuesday, one day after losing MVP Tom Brady for the season with a knee injury.

The coach said quarterbacks Tim Rattay and Chris Simms were in
Foxborough on Monday, but they didn't work out or take physicals.
It appears the team will go into Sunday's game against the New
York Jets with two quarterbacks -- veteran backup Matt Cassel and
rookie Kevin O'Connell. Cassel replaced Brady in New England's
17-10 win over Kansas City, And Belichick says the team hasn't decided on whether to add another quarterback.
