Patriots to still receive draft pick from Josh Gordon trade

The Patriots will end up getting a 2019 seventh-round pick out of the Josh Gordon trade, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. It was initially reported that New England sent a fifth-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Gordon, and that a seventh-rounder would be coming back to the Pats if Gordon was unable to play 10 games with the club in 2018. Although Gordon ended up playing 11 games for New England before being suspended again, Reiss says the 10-game condition was lifted and that the Patriots...

Report: Tight end Rob Gronkowski has been a regular at Patriots facility

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is once again openly contemplating retirement, but there has been at least one positive sign for New England fans hoping he returns in 2019. According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, Gronkowski has been a regular at Gillette Stadium since the Patriots won the Super Bowl two weeks ago. While some of that could have to do with Gronkowski receiving treatment for a thigh injury, Reiss believes it also indicates Gronk is “in a good place with how the season ended,...

What became of Patriots’ traded-away 2018 draft picks?

New England made 12 trades involving draft capital over the first two months of the 2018 league year.

The New England Patriots’ fingerprints were left throughout the 2018 NFL draft.

From the start of free agency on March 14 through the last of the 256 picks on April 28, head coach Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots’ contingent made a dozen trades involving draft capital.

But what became of that capital? Which prospects were ultimately written down on the cards?

As was the case...

WATCH: The Patriots take the Lombardi Trophy to Mass General Hospital

Duron Harmon and Deatrich Wise holding it down for Patriots Nation.

Get ready to cry some man tears.

Like, this kind:

While Patriots Nation has been soaking in the joy of the team’s sixth Lombardi for the past two weeks, the team hasn’t forgotten about their legion of fans that may have had to celebrate the trophy from a hospital bed. As anyone who’s been in that situation knows full well, just getting through the days can be a physical and mental struggle when you’re trying to...

Colin Kaepernick's lawyer predicts a team will sign the QB soon

After reaching a settlement with the NFL on his collusion case earlier this week, Colin Kaepernick could be nearing a return to the league, his lawyer Mark Geragos said in an interview on CNN, Mike Freeman of Bleacher Reports relayed: In addition to making that statement, he mentioned that three teams could have interest, namely the Panthers. Whether he is speaking from knowledge of the situation, which he obviously has, or just making the claim, is unknown at this moment. The Panthers...

Colin Kaepernick's lawyer predicts Patriots or Panthers will sign his client

Was the settlement between Colin Kaepernick and the NFL the first step in the quarterback’s return to the field? It sounds like that may be the case. Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos was on CNN Saturday and predicted that a team will step up and sign his client. He named the Carolina Panthers, whose starter Cam Newton is coming off shoulder surgery, as one contender. He mentioned the New England Patriots as another possibility. Geragos mentioned a third team as a possibility, saying...

Patriots free agency profile: DT Malcom Brown

Brown is set to hit unrestricted free agency next month.

The New England Patriots ended the 2018 season in the best possible way, by defeating the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl 53. In order to stay on top of the NFL mountain, though, the organization will have to quickly turn the page to get itself into a position to create the best possible team for the 2019 season. And a big part of building such a team is mastering the upcoming free agency.

If judged by the list of free agents to be,...

Tom Brady likely to give Patriots hometown discount on contract extension

Tom Brady has famously taken somewhat of a discount on his contracts to help the Patriots build winning teams around him, and he’s in line for another new contract soon. The 41-year-old plans to keep playing until he’s 45 and is heading into the final year of his current deal in 2019. Former NFL agent and current CBS Sports analyst Joel Corry took a look at what an extension for Brady might look like and what type of discount he might be willing to take this time around. Corry writes...

Cris Carter: Patriots could tab Colin Kaepernick as Tom Brady’s successor

Cris Carter came out with a scorching hot take during Friday’s edition of FS1’s “First Things First,” suggesting the New England Patriots conceivably could bring in Colin Kaepernick to be Tom Brady’s heir apparent. Carter, explicitly stating he has no inside information and his thoughts are merely speculative, suggested Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s known fondness for Kaepernick makes such a move a possibility. “I wouldn’t be surprised if the Patriots looked at a guy like...

Isaiah Wynn gives the Patriots plenty of flexibility along the offensive line

The second-year man is coming off a season-long stint on injured reserve.

While the New England Patriots have seen plenty of personnel turnover through the years, some positions have been comparatively stable. Take quarterback, for example, where future Hall of Famer Tom Brady held down the fort for the majority of the past 18 years. Or placekicker: Adam Vinatieri successfully served as New England’s kicker in the early 2000s, with current Patriot Stephen Gostkowski taking over for him in...

Alex Bregman defends comments about wanting to beat Boston

Alex Bregman recently expressed how badly he wants to beat the Boston Red Sox this upcoming season, which makes sense given that they won the World Series and defeated the Houston Astros along the way. But, for some reason, the star third baseman feels the need to defend himself over the remarks. While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Bregman said he found it “crazy” how his commentary about wanting to beat the Red Sox went viral. Bregman spoke about the subject on the “Going Deep...

Here’s what the Patriots want in a quarterback, according to a former assistant coach

Hey man, if being the best checkdown passer of all time was easy, everybody would do it.

This is going to sound like an insult, I swear it's not:

Tom Brady is unquestionably the best checkdown passer of all-time.

Quickness and ball placement is unrivaled. It's so underrated what that does for an offense to continually churn positive plays.

Oddsmakers don’t think Patriots will acquire Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr.

The oddsmakers don’t expect the Patriots to go after one of the big-name wideouts.

The New England Patriots enter the offseason with a Super Bowl title under their collective belt, but with plenty of questions as it relates to their championship roster. One of the positions that might see the most turnover is wide receiver: while Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman remains under contract, the next three men down the depth chart are all scheduled to become unrestricted free agent in...
