Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 6 of training camp

August 2, 2022

Day two of padded practices was another good one for the defense, a struggle for the running game and while there were some more flashy catches from a few receivers, an inconsistent day for the offense yet again. -Terrance Mitchell made it six-for-six as the first guy out for practice. -Lonnie Paxton was on hand in the family/VIP area.
