Tony La Russa and Tom Crean are on hand today at joint practices as guests of Bill Belichick. In his morning news conference, Belichick shared how he's learned from both over the years.

Overheard at Patriots-Texans practice: Veteran Patriots safety Devin McCourty went up to Texans assistant coach Wes Welker before a 1-on-1 drill and asked him if he planned to run any routes like the old days. Welker, the former Patriot (2007-2012), smiled at the playful ribbing.

One nugget from Patriots-Texans joint practice that stood out to me: Tom Brady with some good old-school jawing with former teammate Mike Vrabel, the Texans' defensive coordinator, as the Texans gave the Patriots' attack some fits. It was spirited, healthy banter that brought back memories of practices when Vrabel was with the Patriots (2001-2008).
