As opposed to previous sessions this summer, Monday’s practice was not open to the public while reporters only were allowed to watch the first few minutes —...

Bill Belichick jokes about how 'pretty excited' he is for injury report season

Bill Belichick has to be looking forward to defending his sixth Super Bowl championship with the New England Patriots this season, but that doesn’t compare to the level of anticipation he is feeling for being able to start releasing injury reports again. Belichick, who is notorious for giving as little information regarding injuries as possible, joked on Monday that he is “pretty excited” official injury reports will start going out again in two weeks. “I’m pretty excited to be...

The New England Patriots, who are currently in their middle of their 2019 preseason, have 90 players on their active roster at the moment.

The New England Patriots’ second game of the season is in the books, and it was a highly contested affair: resting most of its starters on both sides of the ball, the team feel behind early only to rally back late and come away with a 22-17 victory.

Measuring Patriots wideout Jakobi Meyers’ preseason marks

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Rookie Jakobi Meyers’ receptions, yards and touchdowns are in rarefied August air.

Jakobi Meyers has accounted for a quarter of the completions thrown by Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham this preseason. He’s accounted for a quarter of their yards as well as half their touchdowns.

Meyers, an undrafted rookie who doesn’t look like one, is in rare August air.

The air got rarer when the New England Patriots met the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night at Nissan...

The veteran linebacker joins his ex-club’s rivals.

When free agency came to an end in early May, only a handful of players to finish the 2018 season on the New England Patriots’ 53-man roster were still left unaccounted for. One of the six men remaining on the open market was Albert McClellan: the veteran would remain unsigned until this weekend, when the New York Jets brought him on board to add depth after the team lost...

Patriots to release veteran wideout Dontrelle Inman

Dontrelle Inman‘s run with the Patriots will end before the regular season. The Patriots are releasing the veteran wideout, Nick Underhill of The Athletic tweets. The veteran wideout requested this move, and the team will oblige, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com (on Twitter). This move will clear a path for Josh Gordon to make his way back onto New England’s roster. The Pats placed Gordon on their active/NFI list, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. Gordon’s return indeed prompted Inman’s...

Report: With Josh Gordon back, Patriots release veteran WR

Veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman signed with the New England Patriots this past offseason with the expectation of resurrecting a once promising career. Sadly, that’s not going to happen. According to Nick Underhill of The Athletic, New England has already decided to move on from the 30-year-old Inman. Given that the Patriots have a whole host of injury concerns at receiver, this has to be considered somewhat of a surprise. Inman put up the best season of his career as a member of the...

Patriots vs. Titans: Fan Notes from the Preseason

Some meaningless observations from Week 2 of the preseason.

There was once a time, many years ago, where I would have grumbled about a Saturday night preseason game. I mean...Saturday night! Time to go out! Hit some bars! Make a fool out of myself! It was always a tough conversation with my degenerate friends as to why I couldn’t come by for a very different kind of pregame, or why I’d be late coming out. It takes a special kind of nutjob to spend...

Tom Brady was pumped about flattering error in Patriots’ program

Even though he has shown very few signs of slowing down, Tom Brady cannot escape the fact that he turned 42 earlier this month. Unless, of course, he consults the official New England Patriots roster sheet. One of the rosters the Patriots put out ahead of their preseason game against the Tennessee Titans this week had a small typo — or was it? Brady suddenly aged backwards 20 years, as he was listed as 22 years old. The six-time Super Bowl champion was so pumped about it that he called...
