    There are four defensive starters listed.
    Wilfork is a contract issue - why show up and risk injury during a huge contract year? Makes sense.
    Warren had several surgical procedures and may not be ready.

    Mayo? Unsure.
    Meriweather? Unsure, and sort of surprising, given that the Pats top draft pick is a safety.

    So two with some questions. Maybe others know what's up with those two.

    I asked Reiss about Warren on Twitter and he said it was a recovery issue.

    But Meri and Mayo...

    I'm not gonna worry too much. For all we know they have permission to come a day late for personal reasons, and if that's the case we'll probably never know it.

    Don't panic.

    Technically, they're two days late, then.

    Thats good news (that he's there) and not so good news (he's possibly injured).

    Any news on Mayo? I'm hoping for a huge season from him :)
