New Bears safety Brandon Meriweather has tried to blend in nicely and quietly with his new team.

But on Monday, the Sun Chronicle in Attleboro, Mass., reported that a Mississippi man is free on $10,000 cash bail after allegedly raping a woman this summer in Meriweather's Foxboro home.

"It's a serious matter, and I hope it gets resolved soon," Meriweather told the Sun-Times. "But it has nothing to do with me.

"For me personally, I'm just going to sit here and focus on the Saints."

Meriweather declined further comment on the matter.

The Sun Chronicle reported that there's a Sept. 20 pre-trial conference in Wrentham District Court on a rape charge brought against James Roberts, 29, of 2068 Greater Ave., Biloxi, Miss., according to David Traub, spokesman for Norfolk County District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.

Traub told the paper that the alleged attack occurred July 13, and that the suspect pleaded innocent during his Aug. 25 arraignment.

Meriweather has not been charged.

"There has been no allegation against anyone but Roberts," Traub told the Sun-Chronicle.

Oh! That explains it then. Now everybody can move on.

Brandon dude, I don't know anything about this situation, but it would make me nervous to have bad things happening at my house that had nothing to do with me. This kind of stuff is not career enhancing for people who want to be Chicago Bears. Just sayin.
