    Thought it might be nice to keep all the commentary in one thread where folks can track and compare the reporting. Media has access to all 3 days. BB will do his final 3 pressers before TC at 11:30 AM Tues-Thurs (time always approximate and Bill is usually late) which will be shown live on the team website followed by practice (scheduled to last about 90 minutes) and then media access to players around 2PM.

    Reiss has his primer on what to watch for up.

    New England Patriots should get feel for team at minicamp - ESPN Boston

    Some players will remain around for the following week or two continuing off season conditioning but after that it's vacation for all including the coaches and FO and even some football mediots until TC opens the end of July. So after this week we will be entering the last remaining 4-6 week dead period in this new age year round NFL.

    Bill opens saying Waters has been excused for personal reasons. Curran tried to ask about fining being optional and Bill blew the question off. They won't fine players they excuse. Veteran courtesy in this case I'm sure. Bill wouldn't comment on Waters intentions.

    Blew off the Ocho question, too.

    Personally I have to laugh at the media types who try an make personnel and talent judgments from these short and T-shirt practices. BB himself has often said that these are not competitive or judgment affairs. They are strictly for teaching. Besides there is very little you can judge when players are not hitting or going full speed....and they AREN'T during this drills.

    There certainly IS going to be a lot of competition for roster spots before the season starts, but NONE of it is going to happen until TC starts in late July. All we, the media, and the staff can get out of these 3 days is vague indications and speculation about how this team will turn out.

    Reiss was the most persistent so he got the worst of it. AWKWARD... I get some of it but all of it really amounts to overkill.

    He didn't seem to counter Mike's contention that Cunningham has had a good off season, just wouldn't discuss why last season might have unfolded as it did (lack of OTA's). Said with young players they are looking for physical improvement, mental development and on field performance. Tough to assess that in non contact environment. Wouldn't really comment on depth or roster makeup saying players performance dictates that. What happened last year is the past.

    No Jersey Selected

    Really shows how much the 2011 rookies missed.

    It's one, but only one, of the reasons why BB is one of my favorite sports figures of all time.

    Nothing personal. It's just the dominos game. Teams and agents waiting for enough players around you to sign in order to frame deals. There is no rush, just have to be done before camp opens.

    Early twitter reports - Crisp uptempo workout. Brady was on and focusing on Welker, Lloyd, Hernendez (back) a lot and Vereen a little (he was with the 1's). The usual suspects were out or working on the side. Cunningham was not present...Deaderick was back. Lots of ST work with Chung behind Edleman on punts. Fanene did something to his knee late. Jones also had trainers looking at a knee. Bequette sacked someone. Billy Yates and David Patton were in attendance.

    WTF...If every agent and team did this, nobody would get signed !

    I know it's standard OP but there should be enough players signed to get an idea where they should be slotted $$$ wise....

    One less thing to have to deal with.....agents are aholes sometimes. :mad:

    Disable Jersey

    Relax. Withe the new CBA they won't miss critical team time like previously.

    Supposedly Patten and Yates are assistant coaches as part of a minority coaching program in the off season. The same program that Peppers used to hitch on as a fulltime coach.

    Does it seem like they have more coaches on the staff this year?

    Not worried about missing time, just ticked that agents tend to screw things up with no good reason. Looking at the linked list of signed first rounders, why hasn't Hightower been signed. It's not rocket science. He hits the midpoint between the unsigned players and then they have another slot.

    I hate agents..... :p
