1. There is a bit of myth as it relates to Josh Gordon being reinstated by the NFL and returning to the Patriots : the wide receiver position has not become a strength. Even with Gordon around, there are still some questions that need to be answered, and everyone knows what happened with Gordon...

1. In projecting the Patriots ’ 53-man roster to open the season, it’s clear some positions are major strengths, while others are clear weaknesses. Wide receiver and tight end come to mind as being thin, while cornerback and safety are very deep. Other teams obviously have the same type of thing...

1. The Patriots have had three training camp sessions and it’s been a strange start to say the least. Tom Brady had a maintenance day on Day 2 (Friday) where he was on the field, but not in uniform and did not participate. Then Saturday, Day 3, the first day in pads, Bill Belichick ended the...

1. Damien Harris will contribute most at running back The running back position has quite a bit of depth, including Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead, but ultimately it will be Harris, the rookie out of Alabama, that makes the biggest impact. Harris seems to be in a position to take some...

1. This past week, a lot was made of Josh Gordon being shown on Tom Brady’s Instagram account working out with the Patriots quarterback. Some immediately assumed it meant the team and Gordon know something about him possibly being reinstated, but that doesn’t appear to be the case as the NFL still...

1. There’s no question N’Keal Harry has a ton of talent, especially when it comes to his hands and making contested catches. This is what really stood out in the earlier OTA session open to the media, but over the three days of mandatory minicamp last week what really stood out was him still...
