In a move that will probably make a few people happy, the league decided on Thursday to cut the number of preseason games in half for the 2020 exhibition season.
This time of year tends to be the home stretch for players who are trying to enjoy some additional days with their families before the start of football. Instead, this year may see the coronavirus cause them to cut that short.
Coming off of the 2019 season, one final detail still remained as the NFL apparently took six months to finally make a determination following their investigation into an incident involving the team’s film crew last December.
Heading into training camp, all signs seemed to point to second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham as the potential starter for the Patriots heading into 2020. Hold that thought.
One of the best parts heading into this year is the fact we really don’t know what to expect, which is what will make every game so interesting to watch. But whether or not that means a changing of the guard is coming remains to be seen.
Last season certainly didn’t turn out quite the way many people had hoped and if he had it all to do over again, it sounds like former Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett would have also done things differently.
While the argument can certainly made that Meyers may have not quite been where he needed to be, one thing that is interesting is looking at his production with Stidham throwing him the football.
The Patriots addressed one key need on Saturday and bolstered two other important areas as the team closed out the 2020 NFL Draft.
Here’s a quick rundown of each selection for the Patriots from Day 3.
Some leftover thoughts on what went down both in the AFC East and around the NFL during night two of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Given Bill Belichick’s connection with Nick Saban, it was only a matter of time before the Patriots dipped into that talented group out of Alabama and the Patriots added one of Saban’s linebackers in the third round Friday night.
The Patriots made a surprise move on Friday night, making a deal with Baltimore to move up to the 60th overall spot to grab a linebacker.
With their first selection of night two of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Patriots selected safety Kyle Dugger out of Lenoir-Rhyne in the second round with the 37th overall pick
Thursday night was somewhat anticlimactic after Patriots head coach Bill Belichick opted to trade out of the #23 overall spot during round one of the 2020 NFL Draft, ending the evening for fans in New England who were looking forward to seeing who the team might be adding to their roster.
One day after the Buccaneers made a deal to acquire retired tight end Rob Gronkowski, it appears that another Patriots player could be next up on the trading block.
