Denton native, former NFL running back Carl Garrett dies
The best rookie RB in the league OJ Simpson's first year, Carl Garrett was the only bright spot for a dismal team. AFL's Rookie of the Year. I met his daughter several years ago and...

Jets receiver Demaryius Thomas says brief stay with Patriots was ‘a waste of time’ after trusting Bill Belichick
Demaryius Thomas calls Patriots stint a “waste of time”
I get his point.
AB signing not our finest hour.
And we could use DT now.
THANKS TO MIKE REISS ON TWITTER
Always interesting seeing the Patriots snap counts.
Things that jump out.
Rex Burkhead - Only 12 snaps. Must have been slowed by injuries, but 16 on special teams. A game he might have been useful, if 100%.
Julian - 95%. Good effort with sore ribs.
Per Mike Reiss twitter - some interesting numbers:
Jason McCourty led the defense with 81% of the snaps. Good idea to rotate on defense in the heat.
Marshall Newhouse played every snap. I expected K. Cunningham to start, based on his time with the team.
Wynn went out after 17 snaps. For some...
Another old timer gone.
I hadn't realized he was this good. Garron was a four time AFL All-Star and his Wikipedia page lists him as "Boston Patriots All-Time (1960's Decade) team. Wow.
I was a kid when Garron played and mixed him up with another running back JD Garrett. But Garron was the...

Are we asleep on Joe Thuney?
I think the prevailing thinking is the Pats will not be able to sign him, but as camp unfolds he seems like the most consistent offensive lineman. Bedard singled him today as the #1 up so far.
Someone mentioned on another thread that no rookie ever comes in and...
Chargers great Keith Lincoln dies at 80
The reason that Lincoln's death is of note to me was because it was the first of many dagger in my heart, great performances against hometown teams.
For those that are old enough to remember, an unbelievable performance in a championship game against our...
What is your favorite website (free or pay) for Patriots training camp updates/insights? Obviously Patsfans.com is #1, but other than here???
I would have designed a poll, but probably would have neglected to mention the best one.

The Boston Renegades, 2018 Women's National Champions, are in The Bowl again facing the LA War.
Former New England Patriot, Vernon Crawford, is the offensive coordinator of the undefeated Renegades. The women's tackle football game can be seen on ESPN 3 Saturday night at 10:00 PM.
Could Jason McCourty fit in as a minimum salary role player, if he wanted. He's a reliable player. It may be viewed as having a Danny Amendola type of veteran presence on defense for little cap.
Meanwhile, if cut, Devin might be offered a contract we won't be interested in matching.
