The Patriots’ reported acquisition of Michael Bennett is another Bill Belichick masterstroke. One of the best pass-rushers in football was available for a measly fifth-round pick, and best of all, he provides insurance in case Trey Flowers departs for greener financial pastures this week. But...

1. This is perhaps the biggest week of the NFL offseason with free agency getting underway. While some teams make big splashes early on in the process, this typically doesn’t happen with the Patriots for a few reasons. No. 1, they typically aren’t in the business of giving out big deals at this...

INDIANAPOLIS -- What a difference a year makes for Mike Mayock. At previous NFL combines, Mayock was one of the faces of it, appearing on NFL Network for hours breaking down all the prospects, including during their on-field workouts. That has changed now that he's the new general manager of the...

The Patriots have done an outstanding job over the years of turning over their talent to have success year-after-year. Right now, that isn’t totally the case. On the Patriots’ final 53-man roster to end last season, there were 10 players under the age of 25, but of those players only three true...

It’s just over one week since the Super Bowl LIII victory parade was celebrated by over 1.5 million people throughout the streets of Boston. However, the 2019 free agency period begins...
