ATLANTA -- It's crazy to think Malcolm Mitchell was part of the Patriots team at the very beginning of the season. The 25-year-old was released at the start of training camp after battling a knee injury dating back to last year. The 2016 fourth-round pick of the team remained unsigned the entire...

ATLANTA — What a difference a year makes. Remember last May when Tom Brady was asked if he feels appreciated by the Patriots during an interview with Jim Gray and he said, “I plead the fifth?” Man, have things changed. That answer appeared to be a shot at Bill Belichick after everything that...

Martellus Bennett is one of the more interesting players to come through New England in quite some time. The tight end was part of the Super Bowl LI winning team when they beat the Falcons, but then signed as a free agent with Green Bay in the offseason. Things didn’t go so well there, and Bennett...

ATLANTA -- Tom Brady's final press conference before Super Bowl LIII was interesting... A man played "We are the Champions" on a ukulele and sung to the Patriots quarterback while he was at the podium on Thursday afternoon. He was quickly escorted out of the room by NFL personnel. Here are a few...
