FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Eli Manning Giants Jersey . - NFL Players Association records show New England special teams captain Matthew Slater has signed a two-year contract extension.Slater called the extension humbling on Wednesday but declined to go into details. The Patriots dont announce contract extensions.The total value of the deal is $4 million.Slater said hed rather talk about his teams game on Sunday against Green Bay.Im just so thankful for what the Lord has done in my life and my career, developing me here as a player and as a man; and Im thankful for an opportunity to continue that development, Slater said. And Im thankful to the coach staff, Coach (Bill) Belichick and this organization for believing in me and appreciating a player like me and guys like myself across this team.The 29-year-old wide receiver has been to the last three Pro Bowls. He has played offence and defence, but hes known for his special teams play.Its huge. Slate jumps off the screen, said safety Devin McCourty. I dont care what unit you watch — whether hes being triple teamed on kickoffs and still able to get to the ball, he just jumps off the screen every time hes on the field. Its a credit to the work hes put in.McCourty says it wasnt always like that for Slater.It was a steady progress where he just kept working and having him around here is great because hes a role model — for everybody on the team — of working hard and becoming great at your craft, he said.Belichick said Slater works well with younger players as well as his peers.Hes very well respected in the locker room, not just by the players, but Id say by the entire organization, just by the way he goes about his job, how committed he is to the team, how dependable he is, his work ethic, his attitude, his toughness, he said. Hes really pretty much a model player. Id love to have 53 guys like him.Times have certainly changed for special teamers, and the Patriots have had two of the best in Slater and Larry Izzo.I think that phase of the game has always played a role in teams being successful and I think here we have a coaching staff and people that understand that and appreciate that, Slater said. I think thats part of the reason why weve had success over the years.NOTES: The Patriots added TE Xavier Gamble and LS Charley Hughlett to the practice squad, releasing LB Deontae Skinner and DB Daxton Swanson. Olivier Vernon Jersey . Hamilton signed offensive linemen Mike Filer, Joel Reinders, Landon Rice and Carson Rockhill. Harry Carson Giants Jersey . The 33-year-old Spaniard, who held the lead since the second round, turned in a solid final round that featured six birdies and two bogeys to finish on 22-under 266. The victory is Garcias first this year with his last win coming at the Johor Open, an Asian Tour event in Malaysia last December. . The hard-serving 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., became the first Canadian to be ranked in the Top 10 on the ATP World Tour thanks to his runner-up performance at Rogers Cup in Montreal.HOYLAKE, England -- Edoardo and Francesco Molinari are pretty much inseparable. The brothers were partners in Europes winning Ryder Cup side in 2010. A year earlier, theyd teamed up to win the World Cup for Italy at Mission Hills. Now they are together on the British Open leaderboard. About 30 minutes after Edoardo signed for a 4-under 68 in the opening round at Hoylake on Thursday, Francesco rolled in a 15-feet eagle putt at No. 18 to shoot the same score. They ended the day tied for third with five others. "We were here on Sunday practicing together," said Francesco, the younger sibling by nearly two years. "Probably we did a good job." The brothers have been feeding off each others games ever since they dominated their local club championships at Circolo Golf Torino as teenagers. "It was a big thing growing up in Italy," Francesco said. "At our age, there werent that many golfers playing well so there was someone that you could compete against every day -- even just training with him every day, it was good to get the best out of our games." For the 33-year-old Edoardo, it is a welcome return to big-time golf. Since 2011, he has been beset by injuries, primarily to his left hand, on which he had surgery in 2012 and again last year. He also had problems with his left wrist. Edoardo has been playing injury-free for the past seven months and a runner-up finish at the Irish Open last month secured his spot at the British Open. "The toughest time was after thee first surgery when you undergo one surgery one time, then you hope its the last one," he said. New York Giants Hats. "And then to do it again something like a year later wasnt fun at all. But hopefully, touching wood, everything is fine now." Its not the first time Edoardo and Francesco have been alongside each other on a leaderboard. In the last qualifying event for the Ryder Cup in 2010, they were the final pairing at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, and Edoardo finished with three straight birdies to win the tournament and seal a place on Europes team. In 2009, they also went head-to-head at the Scottish Open, with Edoardo prevailing again. "We dont like to lose to each other," Francesco said, "we dont like to lose to anyone else." "I saw the leaderboard," he added about his round on Thursday, "but its a tough course so you have to focus on what you are doing rather than the others are doing, even if its your brother." Just to maintain the Italian flavour at Royal Liverpool, Matteo Manassero shot 67 and is in second place behind Rory McIlroy. "Its good to see three Italians up there," Francesco said. "Im sure its going to be good for the kids watching us at home." Golf doesnt normally get much attention in Italy, but that may be about to change. "Italy at the moment is more about team sports, football in particular," Francesco said. "Im sure tonight they will be talking about us."
