Chandler Jones burst on the scene for the New England Patriots in 2012, and has a bright future ahead of him. Jones got off to a fast start recording six sacks in the first half of the season; however, an ankle injury slowed him down the stretch.
Jones will be lookingn to improve his conditioning and flexibiity to improve on his first year in the NFL.
Bill Belichick always says that the jump from year one to two is the most important, and Jones will be looking for an edge by working out with his brother, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon.
“That definitely helps you,” Jones said on Comcast SportsNet New England. “Jon has a boxing coach, a muay Thai coach and a jiu jitsu coach. That helps a lot when you’re tugging, playing in the trenches.
My biggest thing is I try to get my hands inside before blockers touch me so if I work on my hand speed, that’ll be a great aspect to add to my game.”

The Patriots did not make the Super Bowl, what is their biggest need?
Here is my first look at the NFL Draft. There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year. The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft.
I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers?

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft mentioned that he would like to have wide receiver Wes Welker back next season.
“I’d love him to be around,” Kraft said, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. “Like I’ve said all along, it takes two sides to make a transaction…I think Wes wants to be with us, and we want him here. It’s just a matter of whether both sides can be...

I think every Patriots fan who's of the right mind believes that the Patriots have to try and sign Wes Welker. He's really the most reliable receiving option the Patriots have. Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Julian Edelman have dealt with injuries in their young seasons and Brandon Lloyd is Brandon Lloyd.
Wes Welker has been the go to guy to get you a first down, time...
A fan named Joshua asked ESPN’s Adam Schefter if Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola could end up replacing Wes Welker in New England.
It’s definitely possible, Joshua. Amendola is a poor man’s, younger, cheaper Welker. If New England can’t re-sign Welker, it would not be surprising in the least if the Patriots made a run at Amendola. You’re not the first person who has thought...

What would be a Super Bowl without talking about SpyGate? It seems to come up every year, and it is rearing its ugly head, once again. This time in the form of an accusation from the former best player on the St Louis Rams, whom the New England Patriots defeated in Super Bowl XXXVI. Former All-Pro and MVP running back Marshall Faulk told CSNNE.com’s Tom Curran, that he believes...
I will go on record right now and predict that Ed Reed will be wearing a Patriots jersey next season. It's just a matter of time. He needs to get done with this whole Super Bowl thing this year, so he can get back to it next year.
I'm not the first one to guarantee this either. Peter King of Sports Illustrated (it's a magazine!) said the same thing before the Pro Bowl...
Lots of great discussion this morning with some knowledgeable Pats fans on Twitter about the fate of Danny Woodhead. The Pats have a plethora of young running backs, but Woodhead is definitely the most reliable and experienced. If they re-sign him how does it affect Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden and Jeff Demps? Ridley’s got a firm spot but there are some interesting trickle down...
