New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have gathered a whole lot of talent this offseason via the draft, free-agency, and contract extensions.
At some positions, some may say they gathered too much talent. While this is not a bad problem to have, it is still a problem nonetheless. Cuts have to be made, and players must fall on the depth chart.
Who will be in the starting mix?
Steven Ridley, Danny Woodhead, Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden
From what I have heard, Steven Ridley has been getting most of the first-string snaps, and he has not fumbled once so far in training camp. That looks like a good sign for the second year player out of LSU, who amassed 441 yards rushing in his rookie season on just 87 carries.
Brandon Bolden, the undrafted rookie from Mississippi, has reportedly been extremely impressive in the first few days of camp, while second-year player Shane Vereen has struggled. However, Vereen was a second-round pick, so it is definitely t...

After the New England Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker failed to come to a long-term deal this off-season, it looks as though this might be the last season for Welker in New England.
Welker is playing under a $9.5 million franchise tender this season, and there are no...
Rob Gronkowski is equal parts entertaining and unstoppable. When he's not setting records at tight end or helping the Patriots to the Super Bowl, he's out partying and just enjoying life any way he can. (In New England verbiage, it's called the "Summer of Gronk.") But now that Patriots camp has opened and New England is preparing for another season, he's...

That’s US Mes’s Water Polo coach Terry Schroeder who bares an uncanny resemblance to Bill Belichick.
