Tight end Aaron Hernandez of the New England Patriots remains the target of intense scrutiny in the shooting death of 27-year old semi-pro football player and friend Odin Lloyd, but law officials say they are not releasing details of the investigation.
On Saturday, more than a dozen investigators, including two K-9 units and a locksmith, visited Hernandez's North Attleborough, Mass., home for almost four hours and left with bags and boxes of what is presumed to be evidence.
According to multiple reports, Yasminia Serderevic, a spokesperson for the Bristol County District Attorney's Office, said Sunday that officials are not releasing any information on the investigation.
A Saturday statement from that same office said that if there was a major development there would be a public announcement.
Hernandez, who grew up in nearby Bristol, Conn., and was drafted by the Patriots out of the University of Florida in 2010, has been tied to the shooting death of Lloyd since the victim's body was found Monday afternoon in an industrial parkway only a quarter mile from Hernandez's home.

---Fullback Vonta Leach has multiple suitors, but the New York Giants are going on the offensive to bring the free agent lead blocker to their offense.

The Giants, according to the New York Daily News, are planning to offer more money than in their original negotiations in part because Henry Hynoski had surgery to repair a medical collateral ligament injury.

Burleson said Bush could become a better version of Jahvid Best, whose career has been interrupted by concussions.

---Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said he's be comfortable with either Michael Vick or Nick Foles as the team's starting quarterback, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"That's why they pay Chip Kelly the big bucks, to pick the quarterback," McCoy said Saturday. "Whoever he picks, I'm fine with. As long as I get my carries, I don't care who they pick.
