July 21, 2023

The Patriots worked free agent running backs Leonard Fournette and Darrell Henderson yesterday. The workouts made national headlines but the reality is, the Patriots need another running back.

August 19, 2022

FOXBOROUGH – After any real football developments were overshadowed by multiple fights during joint practices earlier in the week, the Patriots and Panthers met one last time in a preseason matchup on Friday night at Gillette Stadium.

The team moved practice from 4 to noon in order to beat any thunderstorms, so the guys got the full dose of heat once again. This was a day where the staff seemed to want to slow things down a bit, coach more and ultimately get the running game going first and…

There was a heavy amount of running game work and there were no big hits or fisticuffs, but still plenty to sift through after what I’d call…


Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from the first day of mandatory mini-camp

June 7, 2022

There was a slight first day of school vibe on the lower practice field behind Gillette Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. Mandatory mini-camp began and aside from a few excused absences, just about everyone was in the house for the first of three straight practice days. There was definitely a bit more tempo to the near two-hour session compared to the optional OTA’s and we even got a small skirmish at…
