Patriots won’t pursue Lynch… this week

From the moment the Patriots lost Rodney Harrison to a season-ending torn quadriceps injury, the obvious question was whether New England would sign veteran safety John Lynch.

The Patriots have explored the possibility, and still might — just not this week. New England instead opted to promote defensive back Antwain Spann from its practice squad to its 53-man roster.

New England always could come after Lynch again, but for now the Patriots are intent to use the players they have.
