Matt Light was one of the best at being a tightlipped Patriot during his time in New England, from postgame comments to his weekly radio appearances. So it made sense that he may have wanted to throw off the shackles after his playing days were done, which he appeared to do when he commented on the Aaron Hernandez situation shortly after the tight end was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd. But now Light says he never made such comments, and — current Patriot or not — he won’t be. He denied ever talking about Hernandez on Toucher and Rich on Wednesday. “I was in the woods for two weeks at the time working with young people through the foundation,” Light said of when the Dayton Daily News article was written, according to CBS Local. “… I can honestly tell you that, two weeks in the woods, none of that time involved talking to a reporter about that situation that played out earlier this year.” In the article, reporter Tom Archdeacon wrote that Light’s demeanor changed when he was a...

Julian Edelman's Week 2 targets lead the league but note that Aaron Dobson saw more looks than fellow rookie despite fewer snaps (WR/TE Targets Review Week 2)

No one was surprised to see Julian Edelman wind up on top of the Patriots’ pecking order with Amendola missing their Week 2 contest against the Jets but most will be surprised with 18 targets. The 6.0 YPC is wonting but that type of volume can’t be ignored. You’ll want him in your lineup as long as Amendola is injured (the timeline remains ambiguous, though it’s good to hear...

Tom Brady Says Patriots ‘Know How to Play Without’ Rob Gronkowski (Video)

Rob Gronkowski has spent much more time on the sideline over the last calendar year than the Patriots would prefer.

His status for Sunday’s matchup against Tampa Bay remains unclear — Gronkowski repeatedly referred to himself as “day...

Brandon Lloyd starring in zombie movie with Daniel Baldwin

The New England Patriots have a receiving corps has looked relatively incompetent through the first two weeks of the season. With Danny Amendola possibly out for several more weeks, they could certainly use a veteran like Brandon Lloyd who has experience in their offensive system. If Lloyd hadn’t turned his attention from football to acting, […]

Tom Brady is a Wrecking Ball (Video)

A fan in Pittsburgh was apparently crying in his Iron City brewski over the Steelers 0-2 start when he became inspired to mock longtime rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. And what better place to voice your frustrations than the internet. Be warned, Patriots Lifer's: Once seen it can never be unseen. @TheGuruGS

Gronkowski closer to doubtful than questionable for Sunday

With each passing week reports will intensify regarding whether Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play. By opting not to put Gronkowski on the reserve/physically unable to perform list which would have shut him down for six weeks of the regular season the Pats sent a strong signal that he’ll be playing before Week Six. He has missed two games and now ESPN reports that Gronkowski...
