Another pads day I assume? If so, would be great to see the offense win a day. I get why the install would be a few steps behind at this point, but a good day for Mac and the offense would quell a few heebies for me.

The New England Patriots are encouraged by rookie wide receiver Tyquan Thornton’s progress so far in training camp. The speedy but slight wideout was a standout during Tuesday’s session, only the Patriots’ second practice in pads. Thornton is 6-foot-2 and 182 pounds but has speed to burn, so it’s good to see him shining despite the fact that contact is now allowed in practice.

The pats should consider moving Agholor if Thornton continues to improve. It doesn’t make sense having a rookie WR who can play as WR5 nor having a WR4/WR5 with a 15 million cap hit.

I disagree, patriots need injury insurance and having both on the roster provides more flexibility.

I agree, which is why I like seeing Thornton working with the ST as a gunner as well. It's a potential path to keep him engaged and on the gameday roster without having to fully commit to a huge snap rate too early. Basically, use him on ST and for specific routes early in the season, then when the inevitable injuries come in mid-season, hopefully his game has rounded a bit and he slides right in. Of course, if he wants to hit the ground running and start right away, I'm not going to complain about that either ;)
