Just speculation, but Jones just tweeted this:
Could it be a contract?
Ebert & Dennard are both in airports heading to Boston too - are there mini camps coming up this week?
Both of them might be looking at contracts this week too as well.
Players have been signing with other teams, including 1st round picks (Bruce Irvin at 15, Melvin Ingram at 18). With the rookie salary scale it's pretty much automatic. And Floyd Reese has been tremendous with contracts in general the past few years.
He just tweeted that the news is he is moving to Mass!
Well I am sure it isn't far off!
So he's moving out of New York.
No wonder he's excited.
Mini camp for the rookies takes place from May 10-12. There are
also organized team activities May 21, 22, 24, 29, 30, 31 and June
4, 5, 7, 8. The veterans come in on June 12-14.
For the most part these guys can all be signed in a day now with few exceptions and that mostly deals with structural preferences. It's in everyone's long and short term interest to get the rookies settled in and assimilating and exposed to organizational oversight and mentoring all off season as opposed to out there living in their mom's basements until they see some actual cash or on endorsement spending benders away from the influence of their veteran teamates.
Do you know if we will get reports from the camps like the Jets had last week?
Well if you mean "Will there be media there reporting on the events?", then I think the answer is "Yes!"
If you mean "Will we hear reports that BB pulled Jones and Hightower out of the drills since they are already going to be starters and BB wants to see some of the lesser profile players trying to make the team; like Sexy Rexy did?", then the answer to THAT one is "absolutely not!"; BB doesn't hand starting jobs to players, they have to earn it.
I believe that I read somewhere that the press will be at the May
12th practice and at some of the organized team activities.
At this point it'll be fun just to see pics of the new guys in Patriots gear, even just practice duds. Not really expecting anything more.
I thought I had missed rookie camp.. glad I am wrong, hate when that happens.
Was too embarassed to ask if it already happened..

Perhaps his STD test came back negative.
I've been upset not seeing the official list of UDFAs from the Patriot's
front office. Only three teams have not confirmed their UDFAs.
Just read on Mike Reiss' blog there will be press access on both
May 11th and12th.
Since unsigned rookies now count against the roster limit, there is no reason to wait to get them signed. Expect Pats to sign the rookies soon, just like what most other teams have been doing.
We drafted Chandler Jones... not Antonio Cromartie.
First domino to fall. Rookie cap hit will be about $767K.

Florio suggests that the issue of whether the rookie contract is fully ensured could hold up signings in the 21-25 range:
