Another rookie is under contract, with Patriots third-round pick Stevan Ridley announcing via Twitter, "Just got the call. Time to sign & hit field."

Practice appears to have been pushed back in what's been quite a busy morning here with the team, and Bill Belichick's 9:30am press conference has also been pushed back until closer to 10am.

If the early events are any indication it should be quite a day.  We'll have more to come as it becomes available.
