New England Patriots
Much has been made in this young NFL offseason about some of the Patriot's key free agents who are set to hit the market. Wes Welker, Aqib Talib, and Sebastian Vollmer have been the main players in the discussions about usage of the franchise tag and determining who should be brought back, for how long, and for how much.
But not much has been said about fan favorite Danny Woodhead. Much like the rest of his career up to this point, the versatile 5'8" back is flying under the radar. Ever since being brought to New England after he was cut by the Jets (dumb move), Woodhead has proved an extremely useful player capable of making big plays in big games, most noteably in last year's Super Bowl, where he was one of the shining stars in a tough loss to the Giants.
Woodhead played college football at Chadron State in Nebraska, where he shattered a number of college football records and had truly astounding numbers during his four years there (see below). Des...

New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead is scheduled to hit the free agent market next month and may have played his last down with Bill Belichick and company.
A fan favorite in Foxborough over the last three seasons, RB Danny Woodhead is no certainty to return to the Patriots. Woodhead is entering free agency for the first time in his career. While we hear the Patriots...
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe believes both Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker likely won’t be back with the Patriots next season. And I agree with him. It’s been obvious for a while now that Wes Welker is likely done in New England. If they place the franchise tag on him for a second straight season, it will cost them $11.4 million for the 2013 season. They can’t afford...
New England Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was busy shoveling his driveway Friday night when Winter Storm Nemo blasted the Northeast with two feet of snow.
Vince's wife posted photos on Instagram with the caption "He got cabin fever already lmao as soon as he shoveled it it piled right back up lol smh."
Just goes to show that NFL players are just like...
Once upon a time in New England, it was a common phrase to say the Patriots had a strong middle class. The thought was to slightly overpay for players who would sign elsewhere due to lack of opportunities to start, thus creating depth or a “strong middle class.”
However, when looking over the Patriots salary cap, there is one glaring contradiction. Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork...
There is a reason that the New England Patriots put the franchise tag on Wes Welker in 2012. The guy is that good and he was worth keeping at 9.515 million in 2012. Now he is listed as the 4th most valuable free agent this off-season. Welker had 118 receptions in 2012 for 1,354 yards and 6 touchdowns. The question the New England front office has to be considering this time around...
Close friend and former coach of Aqib Talib defends Talib’s work ethic saying the story coming out from the Patriots organization “doesn’t make sense to me.” Mark Mangino coached Talib in Kansas and said Talib loved the preparation portion of practice and that he worked hard during the drills, weight lifting and mental preparation every week.
Of course the news broke about...
Single dudes in their twenties, especially those with seven-figure salaries, usually like to party. I don't blame them. As a fan, I accept that. This silly notion that those who play for our favorite teams can't have social lives infuriates me. So long as he isn't breaking laws or risking his life or career, what a player does in the offseason or even on Friday nights...

Absolutely. He fits the profile of the kind of receiver they’ve lacked, and brings return...
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has caught some flak in the past week or so, because of video that has surfaced of Gronk partying and wrestling in Vegas with a broken forearm.
No Gronk didn’t break any crimes, and it is the offseason, so he should be able to enjoy himself. There are some who feel that Gronkowski is walking a tightrope and at some point his behavior and antics...

It appears that Ryan Mallett is going nowhere — for now.
The Patriots’ third-year quarterback has been a rumored trade chip ever since he was drafted in the third round out of Arkansas in April 2011. When Mike Lombardi was hired by the Cleveland Browns, the AFC North squad became a likely landing spot for Mallett.
The Browns are not expected to trade for Mallett, though, according...
If Gronk could spike the “Patriot Way” he probably would.
