By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06 Back to our regularly scheduled NFL programing. Last week was a wild one with so much uncertainty surrounding college football, which in turn made us put our Patriots’ position previews on hold.

NEFJ Notebook: Patriots release Inman and Allen. Activate Edelman and Thomas

August 23, 2019

The Patriots made some moves following Saturday’s pre-season win over the Titans. Here are my thoughts on the moves that were made this week. 1.
