Found July 05, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Patriots.com, running back Shane Vereen lined up quite a bit at receiver during offseason workouts. During the spring there were times when Vereen lined up as a receiver on the outside where the Patriots were looking to isolate him in space against a linebacker. It was similar to last year’s divisional playoff win over Houston when he caught a long touchdown pass down the left sideline on a double move. I can see Brady and Vereen hooking up in a similar fashion – only more often – this year. The Patriots love using their running backs as receivers and they’ll really need a player like Vereen to step up with the loss of Aaron Hernandez. Need NFL Tickets?

Marcus Benard not expected to make the Patriots final roster

Mike Rodak of ESPNBoston.com doesn’t expect Marcus Benard to make the Patriots final 53-man roster because of how crowded New England is at defensive end.
