After a long offseason, and short notice for a return to work, the players are reportedly in Foxboro this morning and are undergoing their conditioning runs.
Former Patriot, Tedy Bruschi, outlined the process during a Q&A with Mike Reiss last year with ESPN, with Bruschi saying that his test was three sets of ten 50-yard sprints. Bruschi said that each sprint had to be completed in seven seconds, with players having 30 seconds in between each sprint. From there players got a break of three minutes in between the three sets of ten 50-yard sprints.
Considering how fast the CBA finally came together, it should be interesting to see how many players do/don’t complete the run compared to past years.
Save for player transactions it’s likely going to be a quiet day, as these runs and workouts are closed to the public. However, we’ll have updates throughout the day as they become available.
