April 25, 2019

The Patriots allowed Malcolm Brown and Danny Shelton to move on free agency. They will use the draft to replace Brown and Shelton and add depth. 1. Khalen Saunders, 6-0 324, Western Illinois: Saunders is an explosive shade nose, one technique tackle who can jump the snap and get penetration. He plays with great leverage and balance and moves well laterally. Saunders would be a good fit in the Patriots…

Losing Rob Gronkowski is a major league blow. Gronkowski was a shell of the player he has been throughout his career last season but at 6-6 265, he still possessed elite size and athleticism. The Patriots…

The Patriots currently have Julian Edelman, Demaryius Thomas, Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Bruce Ellington and Braxton Berrios among others on the roster.

April 21, 2019

The Patriots 2019 schedule was released on Wednesday night. Here are a few thoughts the Patriots schedule this upcoming season. 1. Opening against the Steelers makes sense in that the two teams have a rivalry but I would have preferred Cleveland or Kansas City came to town for opening night and the raising of banner number six. 2. An early season trip to Miami (Week 2) is never a good…

The NFL Draft cannot get here fast enough. The Patriots off-season has been too long already and I am tired of it. Between Bob Kraft reportedly soliciting prostitutes in Florida, Rob Gronkowski retiring and Greg Schiano resigning, I am just about done with the Patriots. The Schiano resignation came out of left field but it is not a surprise given the fact that the Patriots routinely make news these days….
