But this offseason the Patriots brought another superhero into the fold. Adrian Wilson is a 12-year veteran in the NFL and an imposing presence out on the football field. His 6-foot-3, 230-pound frame is big, even for a safety, and he dishes out bone-crushing hits that leave a lasting impression. “He’s a big, strong guy, and I think physically [he] will be a strong player for us,” McCourty said on Tuesday, according to ESPN Boston. Wilson has been showing off that unbelievable strength during the Patriots’ offseason voluntary workout program. He has even wowed his new teammates, yielding him the nickname “Incredible Hulk” from fellow defensive back Marquice Cole.

Breaking Down the 2013 Patriots Schedule

When the NFL announced the schedules for the 2013 season I couldn’t help but think back to this moment last year. I sat at my computer giggling to myself like a child as ESPN released the joke that was the 2012 Patriots schedule. Only 2 teams caught my eye as I poured over the list in front of me, and both of them would beat us at some point in the season. The Ravens and the 49ers...
