According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, a source has told him that tight end Rob Gronkowski has looked great during the Patriots’ offseason program as he continues to wait and see if he’ll need a fourth surgery on his forearm. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is still a couple of weeks away from having a definitive answer as to whether he will need a fourth surgery on his left forearm, according to sources. The last month has been more of a “wait-and-see” period, with Gronkowski essentially buying more time for doctors to determine if the infection has cleared. Gronkowski has been working in the Patriots’ offseason program, and for what it’s worth, one opinion from someone who has seen him is that he “looks great.” A month ago, surgery was seen as “very likely” but there has always remained a chance that it could be avoided. At this point, there have been no unexpected setbacks; however, as Gronkowski has already learned, things can always change quickly. This is great news for Gronk and the Pats.  The last thing they want is for him to have to undergo another surgery.  Now if he can stay healthy in 2013, they’ll both be in even better shape.   Need NFL Tickets?

Terrell Owens Says Signing With Patriots Would Be ‘No Brainer,’ Thinks Sky Would Be Limit With Tom Brady

Terrell Owens spent some time out in Los Angeles, Calif., working out with Tom Brady earlier this offseason, and it just so happens he would be interested in playing for the Patriots. Owens caught some passes from Brady at USC in early April and, like almost any intelligent NFL player, would want to play with Brady and the Patriots full time, according to BlindsideFootball.com...

Chris and Nick McDonald team up on Patriots after being separated as teenagers

Chris McDonald and Nick McDonald have a chance to join an elite group of people this upcoming NFL season. Both are currently on the New England Patriots roster, with Nick having joined the team in 2011 and Chris signing as an undrafted free agent following the NFL Draft last month.

Tom Brady Reminds The World That He Is Totally Just a Normal Guy Like You And Me

It seems that Tom Brady may have had some luck go his way when Orb won the Kentucky Derby. Check out the video of the Patriots quarterback squealing with joy following Orb taking the checkered flag (so to speak). The video would suggest that other than the fact that Tom is married to a super model, makes millions of dollars every month, is ridiculously blessed with good jeans,...

Patriots’ Versatile Offseason Acquisitions Allow Team to Bring Multiple Schemes, Coverages on Defense

Some of the Patriots’ 2013 acquisitions could bring the team’s defense back to its glory days. Prior to 2011, Bill Belichick was known to run a complex hybrid defense that included 3-4 and 4-3 looks, zone coverages and man coverages. But a lockout leading up to the 2011 season, and a 2012 roster that was full of new and inexperienced players, forced the team to simplify on defense...

Bowtied & dressed like a weasel -- Tom Brady celebrated Orb's Kentucky Derby win

Tom Brady came to Orb's box after the Kentucky Derby to congratulate the team on the horse's victory. And by congratulate we mean high fiving, hugging, and screaming. Orb's connections... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Bill Belichick praises LeGarrette Blount trade

The New England Patriots are reshaping themselves into a new look unit. In the midst of the departure of wide receiver Wes Welker and the uncertain immediate futures of tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots are restocking their arsenal with wideout Danny Amendola and the recent trade for former Tampa Bay running back LeGarrette Blount.

Forget Raymond--Everyone Loves Tom Brady!

If the networks are looking at retooling an old idea and trying to pass it off as new they might have something if they replace Ray Romano with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Because after all--everybody loves Tom Brady (right?)! What's not to love ,right? He has an incredibly successful career, he loves his job, he loves the work that goes into his job...

Tom Brady is absolutely obsessed with football, in case you didn't know

ESPN's Seth Wickersham recently wrote a must-read article on Tom Brady last week. I posted on one of my favorite quotes from the article about Kurt Warner. For the most part, a lot of the article contained stuff about Brady that you'd already know if you had been listening to his often times very candid weekly WEEI interviews the past few years. Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston...

Bill Belichick Recognizes Aaron Dobson’s Basketball Background

If there’s one thing that we’ve learned about Bill Belichick over the years is that he admires players that have excelled in two sports. In the most recent case, Belichick has recognized Aaron Dobson’s basketball background and told the media on Friday that it certainly was a plus in his scouting report, as basketball players tend to have “good hands.” Per the Providence...

Jones, Jenkins enter Patriots' annual wideout battle on bubble

When the New England Patriots brought in receivers Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins earlier this offseason, their final roster spots were far from guaranteed. As were their contracts.And after New England drafted two wideouts in the first four rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft, something will certainly have to give. As ESPN Boston notes, Jones and Jenkins are two of the dozen Patriots...

Blount takes pay cut, Moe is like Welker, Boyce misses time

Here are some of the key leftover storylines, from my view point, that have come out of the past couple days so far. 1. LeGarrette Blount was once a starter for Tampa Bay, and a very good looking one at times. However, a decline in performance and a breakout rookie year from Doug Martin, and now he finds himself close to the bottom of the running back depth chart of a team over...

Patriots Cut Six

Earlier this week the New England Patriots released a half dozen players.  Among those getting cut were WR Jeremy Ebert who was a late round draft pick in 2012.  The Patriots also released RB Tony Fiametta who signed before 2012 as a free agent out of Dallas and never saw the field due to family issues and G Brian Waters who sat out last season debating retirement after having...

Terrell Owens is in a Twitter fight with Mike Florio

Terrell Owens continues to make news and grab attention, and he hasn’t even played a down in 2 1/2 years. You may have come across an interview this past weekend at blindsidefootball.com (via 60 Max Power O), where T.O. talked about the prospects of playing for the New England Patriots after he was seen last month working out with Tom Brady: “I think that’s a no-brainer,...
