Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots CB Eric Warfield has improved during training camp, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "I think he's one of those players who has started to climb, become more consistent, showing a greater rate of improvement than maybe the first 10 days. I would definitely put him in the starting-to-rise-a-little-bit category."

Tom E. Curran, of the Providence Journal, reports New England Patriots CB Eric Warfield was surprised to learn the defense in New England is different than any other he has played under. "What they expect of personnel, your position on the field, your position on a certain route, the way you leverage receivers," Warfield explained. "I thought coming in, the only thing that would change was the terminology. But some things are different here with, like I said, positioning. (Safety) Tebucky Jones has helped me out a lot and helped me with adjustments. And the young guys, I watch how they play it. I'm not ashamed to say I'll sit back and watch a young guy. Anyone considered to be better than me, I'm going to watch."

Elizabeth Merrill, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said the team remains interested in free agent CB Ty Law (Jets). "We have an interest in Ty Law," said the Chiefs president/general manager. "But obviously, it has to be based upon economics. To this point, we certainly haven't been able to get together with his representatives on a contract, and we also note that no one else has, either. Sometimes patience is difficult, but it is also a pragmatic thing to do." The Chiefs have been searching for a replacement for longtime starting CB Eric Warfield, who was cut in March. The Chiefs currently have about $8 million in cap space, but Peterson said the club would need a good chunk of the money in the coming months.

Richard Thomas, of the Texarkana Gazette, reports New England Patriots CB Eric Warfield will be seeking a starting spot in training camp. The Kansas City Chiefs cut Warfield, after eight seasons with the team, March 3. "Kansas City wanted to go in a different direction, and I have nothing bad to say about their organization, coaches or players," Warfield said Friday, June 23. Warfield, who is currently listed as the No. 2 left cornerback for New England, doesn't plan on being a backup. "I asked them what my role would be, and they said 'Whatever you make it.' That's why I think it I can go out there and show them what I'm capable of doing, then I can earn a starting spot," Warfield said. CB Ellis Hobbs and Warfield (6-0, 190) will likely compete for the starting left cornerback spot. Warfield has played only corner in his pro career, but says the Patriots have informed him he could be moved to safety if the team needs to move him. Warfield said he will continue offseason workouts until July 7, then get a couple of weeks off before he reports to training camp on July 28.

Dan Margolies, of the Kansas City Star, reports a lawsuit against New England Patriots CB Eric Warfield has been thrown out of court. A Jackson County judge threw out a wrongful-death lawsuit against him, entering summary judgment against the plaintiffs, James R. and Scheryl J. Quirk and the estate of Breanna Zeiler. The Quirks were the parents of Shelbie Lynn Quirk, and Zeiler was her minor daughter. Shelbie was driving her 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo about 5 a.m. March 25, 2001, when it spun out of control, hit a guardrail and came to rest in the northbound lane of Interstate 435 north of Gregory Boulevard. A moment later, a northbound Chevy Blazer rammed the driver's side door of her car, and Quirk died at the scene. The Blazer was leased to Warfield and driven by Alexander L. Jones, who lived at Warfield's Lee's Summit house. The suit charged that Jones had been drinking the day of the accident and that Warfield knew, or should have known, that he was drinking but nonetheless entrusted him with the vehicle. In a sworn affidavit, Warfield said he was in Chicago that day and had specifically told Jones not to drive the Blazer. Jones backed up Warfield's claim in his affidavit.

Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots CB Asante Samuel is competing with CB Ellis Hobbs for the No. 1 cornerback role, with CB Eric Warfield possibly making a run for the position. CBs Chad Scott and Randall Gay are expected to compete for playing time, but are considered long-shots to win the top position.

Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots CB Eric Warfield said the team's system appeals to him. Warfield added, "It's pretty much the way that with certain personnel, you can just fit them in and it seems like the guy has been there for so long." He also said, "They utilize guys to their advantage and make them work within the system. I just like how everything in this system seems to work out."
