FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots defense is finally experiencing some continuity this season. They’re bringing back 10 of 11 starters and should be showing more complex looks this season as a result. Despite some familiar faces, the group wants to forge a new identity. “I mean, it’s some of the same faces, some new faces,” Aqib Talib said. “We’re going to try to establish our identity every year. We’re not trying to do what we did last year. That was last year. This is a new year. We want to establish our identity this year.” Talib will still be playing next to Devin McCourty, Alfonzo Dennard, Steve Gregory and Kyle Arrington, but Logan Ryan, Duron Harmon and Adrian Wilson are all new to the Patriots, and he never played with Ras-I Dowling last season. “We just trying to be assignment sound, fast defense,” Talib said. Talib said the team has made a lot of progress from the beginning of training camp, becoming better as a whole. “Communication. Lot better communication,” Talib s

Tom Brady Raises Eyebrows, Flashes Devilish Smile From Sidelines During Patriots-Eagles Preseason Game (Video)

Tom Brady can be a treasure trove of great sideline moments, and he added a new one during Friday night’s preseason game against the Eagles.

Aaron Dobson has turned things around at Patriots camp

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com,  Patriots rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson has turned things around lately after a slow start to training camp.  And even better for the Patriots, Dobson turned things around after a less-than-smooth beginning in the spring and has made himself more into a factor in training camp. With Kembrell Thompkins’ strong camp so far,  the Patriots’...

Julian Edelman Appeared to Be Passed by Josh Boyce, Kenbrell Thompkins on Depth Chart in Eagles Game (Audio)

The Patriots must be impressed with their rookie receivers. When New England took the field Friday night in Philadelphia in its first preseason game, it was Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins lining up with Danny Amendola, Tom Brady and the first-team offense, not veteran Julian Edelman. Either Edelman has been passed by the rookies, or Bill Belichick determined...

Rob Gronkowski Grabbing Digits Out the Window

Rob Gronkowski is down, but never out. The injured Patriots tight end is still Gronking in the free world. Check out this tweet, “Pretty funny Gronk and Kevin Durant getting every girl on Yawley ways number after the concert mad cool tho” Gronk will never change. Let’s just hope he gets back on the field soon. Stash This Name Away: Zach Sudfeld Gronk Teaching Kids the Gronk Spike (Video)

Patriots Practice Review: Sloppy Day for the Offense

The Patriots returned to the confines of Foxborough for practice Monday and, despite the low-intensity nature of the "shells" (shoulder pads, helmets and shorts; no live hitting) workout, Coach Belichick couldn't have been happy with the execution of his offense. Drops and poor timing in the passing game seemed to crop up throughout the workout, with backup QB Ryan...

Patriots QB, Ryan Mallet, Doesn’t Like To Block For His Teammates

A.B. I’m not asking Mallet to lay this guy out, or die trying. I’m not even asking for a full speed block. But when you’re the backup for Tom Brady and never see the field in anything but preseason games, a little effort and balls goes a long way. Good thing Blount scored a ridiculous TD because it could have easily gone for a loss with #55 getting that free pass.

Zach Sudfeld, Vincent Jackson Most Impressive Performers in Patriots-Buccaneers Joint Practice (Notes)

FOXBORO, Mass. — The rest of the Patriots and Buccaneers were playing for second best on Tuesday afternoon. Vincent Jackson was far and away the best player on the field at Gillette Stadium. The Buccaneers wide receiver schooled the Patriots’ defensive backs in the New England-Tampa Bay joint practice. It didn’t matter if Aqib Talib was covering him or rookie Logan Ryan, Jackson...

Tom Brady Attends Jay-Z/Justin Timberlake Concert at Fenway Park, According to Eyewitnesses

On Friday night, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was slicing and dicing the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense in the Pats’ first preseason game of the year. One night later, he was back in New England enjoying one of the summer’s biggest concert. Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake hit the Fenway Park stage Saturday night, and Brady was in attendance, according to multiple Twitter eyewitnesses...

Tim Tebow’s Future on Patriots’ Roster Is Not Something Bill Belichick Is Ready to talk About Now

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tim Tebow looks like he should have a place on the Patriots’ roster this season, but nothing is guaranteed. Before Tebow took the practice field for the Patriots’ first day of joint practices with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday, Bill Belichick stood at the podium deflecting questions about his backup quarterback’s future with the team. “That’s not...

On the Rise: Kenbrell Thompkins

When a rookie WR gets the praise that Kenbrell Thompkins has received in Training Camp and his first preseason game, you need to take notice.  Especially a WR that plays with Tom Brady.  The buzz early was with Aaron Dobson, but Thompkins has a great chance to unseat his fellow rookie and start in New England.   According to Evan Silva of Rotoworld, his film study showed Thomkins...
