FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Zach LaVine Jersey . -- In packed stadiums, Tom Brady had one of his worst statistical seasons. Behind the scenes, hes working hard to have a better one. And, more importantly, carry the New England Patriots further -- to the Super Bowl -- than they went last season. Brady has heard coach Bill Belichick stress throughout their 14 full seasons together "that whatever matters to you as an individual, its far distant from what the team goals are," the quarterback said Monday. Achieving those goals is a year-round pursuit with intense off-season preparation setting the stage for the regular season. "What youre trying to establish this time of year is what kind of team youre going to be," Brady said during the Patriots third week of organized team activities. "Whos willing to put it all on the line when theres really no glory in this. Theres no glory in an OTA practice. Theres no glory in the weight room or out there on the conditioning field, but itll show up at some point. "Its a long season, so, at some point, the mental toughness, the discipline of the team always shows up and those are the things that were trying to work on." Last season, Brady was 17th in the NFL in passer rating, 21st in completion percentage, 22nd in average gain per pass attempt and 11th in touchdown passes. Of course, Wes Welker left before the season for the Denver Broncos, Aaron Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder last summer and Rob Gronkowski was limited by injury to seven games. The Patriots leading returning receiver was Julian Edelman, and he had just 21 catches in 2012. He followed that with 105 receptions in a breakout season, but the rest of the receiving group suffered from injuries and inexperience. The only significant addition to the group is Brandon LaFell, who had a career-high 49 catches in his fourth NFL season last year with Carolina. "Theres always ways to find improvement," Brady said after posing for photos with winners of the 2014 Myra Kraft Community MVP awards in honour of team owner Robert Krafts late wife. "Youre always working with lots of other guys. So its not necessarily just my improvement, but how my improvement relates to the rest of the team. And we all change from year to year." Receivers Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins are entering their second season with the Patriots. Brady is starting his 15th and wants to play as long as possible. "The thing that Ive learned over the years is youve got to pay the price in advance," he said. "You just cant run out on the field and expect things to be better without putting the time in and extra effort. I try to be really consistent and dependable for our guys, and I think thats what the quarterback position needs to be." The Patriots won their fifth straight AFC East title last season and 10th in the past 11. But Brady was outplayed by Peyton Manning in the AFC championship game. Denver won 26-16 as the Patriots made it nine straight seasons without a Super Bowl title. The off-season intensity increases next week with a three-day minicamp followed by training camp next month. For Brady, theres no time to waste. "I dont think theres any time that we come out of a meeting thinking, Man, were great. Weve got everything figured out. Its really a time of year where youre going to make a lot of mistakes," he said. "Youre going to give great effort and youre going to fail and then youve got to gain trust in each other and become more consistent." Then, after speaking with reporters for nearly 10 minutes, Brady was eager to return to work. "Back to practice," he said with a big smile. Lauri Markkanen Womens Jersey .

Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Fiorentina levelled on aggregate in the 14th minute when Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez headed back a long ball from David Pizarro and Pasqual smashed home an angled volley.RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired veteran defenceman Tim Gleason from the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday in exchange for defenceman John-Michael Liles. The Hurricanes also received the rights to Brown University defenceman Dennis Robertson in the trade announced during the Maple Leafs game against Detroit in the Winter Classic. The 30-year-old Gleason was the Hurricanes most physical forward and one of the longest-tenured players on the team. Only captain Eric Staal and 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie Cam Ward have been with the franchise longer. The 33-year-old Liles had 15 hits and averaged 17 minutes of ice time in six games this season with the Maple Leafs. He was scratched from the Winter Classic. "John Liles was an excellent person for us and an excellent player," Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said. "He backed what we were trying to do and he was one of our leaders and it was a hard thing to do. An unfortunate situation where we couldnt get him ice time. Young guys like Morgan Reilly pushed him out the door. It was an unfortunate situation." Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford says Liles is a puck-mover who "can make a difference offensively" from the blue line. The Hurricanes acquired Gleason in a trade with Los Angeles in September 2006, three months after they won their only Stanley Cup. He missed 21 games this season due to injury, inclluding the first 10 with a concussion, and had one assist while playing at a minus-7 rating with 10 penalty minutes. Zach LaVine White Jersey. Gleason played in 491 career games with the Hurricanes -- the third-highest total of any defenceman since the club moved from Hartford in 1997 -- and his 495 penalty minutes are the most of any Carolina defenceman since the move. He was a healthy scratch for Tuesday nights overtime win against Montreal that snapped a five-game losing streak. The Hurricanes are sixth in the Metropolitan Division, 20 points behind division leader Pittsburgh and three behind the New York Rangers. Gleason played for the silver-medal-winning United States team at the 2010 Winter Olympics, and twice in the past three years his teammates selected him as the clubs Steve Chiasson Award winner for determination and dedication. Hes under contract through the 2015-16 season, having signed a four-year extension in July 2012 that will pay him $4.5 million both this season and next, and $3.5 million in the final year of the deal. Liles also is under contract through 2015-16 at an average of $3.875 million per year. Its the second trade of the week for Carolina, which sent forward Kevin Westgarth to Calgary on Monday in exchange for minor league forward Greg Nemisz. The Hurricanes also picked up the rights to the 22-year-old Robertson, who has three goals and five assists during his senior season at Brown.
