There's a fine line between being a veteran and being over the hill.New England Patriots safety Adrian Wilson is toeing that line, heading into his 13th season in the NFL. Don't expect him to admit it, though. Wilson was in a bit of diminished role in the Arizona Cardinals' pass defense last season (42nd among all safeties in total snaps), but the new New England Patriots' safety said he's still got plenty to offer."Obviously players slow down as they get older, but they also have experience and they’ve seen a lot of things as far as football," Wilson said Tuesday, via Mike Reiss at ESPNBoston.com. To say that a person is not good enough, that wouldn’t be the right verbiage to use, as far as that is concerned."I feel like I can help this team win. That’s pretty much what I’m here to do."Though Wilson's stats have dropped off in the past few years (two INTs, three sacks in 2011-12), his overall play hasn't taken much of a hit. While Wil...

Patriots might make sense for John Abraham

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes that free agent defensive end John Abraham would be a good fit for the New England Patriots. He made his tour of visits, and he’s been pretty firm with his asking price, but this still leaps out as a Bill Belichick move to me. He is always collecting veteran edge players who can add situational help, and the Pats are always in the hunt....

Patriots cut receiver Jeremy Ebert

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston, the New England Patriots have cut wide receiver Jeremy Ebert. Ebert could be mistaken for Wes Welker on the field; his size and frame have a similar look. Maybe off it also, as he’s heading out of town to make room for receivers Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce. Reiss writes: ‘Ebert didn’t make the Patriots out of training camp last season...

Jamie Collins Posterizes Unsuspecting Opponent During Southern Miss Basketball Intramurals (Video)

When the Patriots drafted Southern Miss linebacker Jamie Collins, a quick Google search would reveal he’s a tremendous athlete. At nearly 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Collins ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash,  jumped 41 1/2 inches in the vertical leap and set an NFL combine record with his 11-foot-7 broad jump. But further Googling and Youtubing showed that Collins isn’t just a demon...

Tom Brady Gives Incredible Thumbs Up Pose

Tom gave this great thumbs up pose with Karson Tager, an Army Vet & CBS Radio / Mix 104.1 Morning Show Host. I guess he wasn’t quite as enthused at Tom. Thanks to Terez Owens for the heads up...

Belichick talks Jeff Demps trade and LeGarrette Blount

The Patriots were successful in their attempt to move running back/return man Jeff Demps after the Olympic Sprinter announced that his devotion to Track & Field would limit his time on the gridiron. In addition to Demps' open devotion to track, the Pats signed Pro Bowl return specialist Leon Washington this offseason as well. So the need to keep Demps quickly spiraled...

Could the Patriots have gotten another steal in the seventh round?

Getting drafted in the seventh round isn't exactly the greatest thing for players. Sure, it's great to say that you were drafted, but it's very rare that seventh rounders stick around. At least as an undrafted free agent you can chose a team where you might have a chance to compete. Just look at one of the Patriots seventh round picks last year, Jeremy Ebert, he'...

Patriots Could Take Best-11-Players Approach to Fill X-Wide Receiver Role

With Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker gone, Tom Brady needs someone to throw to, right? The Welker role was famously filled by free agent Danny Amendola, who is expected to play Z receiver in two-wide sets and slot receiver in three-wide sets. But Lloyd’s role in the offense will be the best competition to watch as rookie mini-camp, OTAs and training camp draw near. There are four...

Patriots Use of Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez Creating Pattern for Offenses Around NFL

The NFL is a league based on patterns and trends. Coaches, players and front-office personnel are constantly studying the successes of certain teams to try and create their own blueprint. The Patriots always seem to be one of those test cases. First, it was the aggressive press coverage of their cornerbacks, which forced the league to more strictly enforce the five-yard illegal contact...
