Patriots | Dillon says hes not in competition with Maroney

The Associated Press reports New England Patriots RB Corey Dillon says he's not in competition with rookie RB Laurence Maroney and that there is plenty of room for both of them in the team's backfield. "There's no competition," Dillon said of what is expected to be a battle for the team's starting running back job. "We're here to help the team win, period. I don't care who's in there, me or him." After adjusting his offseason training, Dillon said he is healthy and fitter than in 2005, when he averaged a career-low 3.5 yards per carry and had a long gain of 29 yards. Dillon said he has dropped 4 pounds from last season, down to 231, and can see the difference already. Even if he isn't the starter, Maroney is expected to ease some of the burden on Dillon, who turns 32 in October.
