The 41-year-old is signed through next season, but has a cap hit of $27 million. It would seem likely the team will extend him and spread out the number since $27 million...

ATLANTA -- This is Chris Hogan's third year with the Patriots, so he's been around Julian Edelman quite a bit. He's also been around long enough to know just how important Edelman is to the Patriots offense. When Edelman was suspended the first four games, the Patriots averaged 23.8 points per game...

ATLANTA -- In Josh Gordon's four months with the Patriots, he may not have spent more time with anyone in the organization than character coach Jack Easterby. Especially at the beginning, Easterby was by Gordon's side almost the entire time. In Week 3, even though Gordon was inactive after being...

Tony Romo is freaking Nostradamus when it comes to calling the plays about to be run by the Patriots, so of course we snap to attention when he makes a Super Bowl prediction. And he gave us exactly that on Tuesday, right down to the final score, but he's missing an important piece of information...
