The Patriots are close to a deal with wide receiver Kenny Britt, who was waived by the Browns on Friday. The former first-round pick has been dogged by off-field issues. At 6 feet 2, he'd give QB Tom Brady a bigger target.
Mike Tomlin, saying "it's good to be in big games," is excited about the hype leading into Sunday's game against the Patriots at Heinz Field.

A visit by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to New York's Rikers Island jail facility has drawn criticism from the union representing city correction officers.
A strong draft, a new mix of veterans and -- perhaps most importantly -- a smart risk on a young head coach have all paid off for the Rams this season.
The Rams are 7-0 when Gurley gets more than 20 touches, a number he was well short of in Sunday's loss.
Manning wanted to retire as a one-uniform player, but if he wants to stay in the game, he might have to give up New York.
With the Giants in a free fall, it would make more sense for them to send Eli Manning back to the bench and see what rookie Davis Webb can do.
If Canton is reserved for game's greatest players, the best return man the NFL has ever seen should be a shoo-in for inclusion.
For the 1997 Detroit Lions, having Barry Sanders break 2,000 rushing yards was as much a team milestone as it was an individual record.
