Foxboro Foxtrot: Who has the moves to be New England’s top RB?

Patriots surprisingly release Hoyer, Branch, Koppen

Whether it’s due to the numbers game or a financial issue, sentimentality is not big in New England. The Pats seem to make these moves annually and … well, this year is no different. According to multiple reports...

Tom Brady Better Than Joe Montana, 'Might Already Be the Best of All Time,' Says Robert Kraft

Robert Kraft has made it clear: He sees Tom Brady as a fifth son. So with that in mind, take a guess as to where he thinks Brady ranks among the NFL's all-time quarterbacks. Clearly forgetting that guys like Tim Tebow, Sage Rosenfels and Rex Grossman are still destined for greatness, Kraft immediately compared Brady to Joe Montana recently. The Patriots owner is hardly the first...

Patriots cut twenty two - full list, more receivers released

Here’s pretty much the only highlight you need to see from last night’s snoozer that ended yet again with the Patriots losing to the Giants on a late score. Kinda over those.
