PATRIOTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bill Belichick says LB Jonathan Freeny is ‘one of our overall top workers’

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is known to brush over the big names and gush over the lesser known player and one for example is linebacker Jonathan Freeny. As the much of the attention goes to the much deserved big names in Dont’a Hightower, Jabaal Sheard, and Jamie Collins, Belichick reminded there’s more in that group that needs some recognition. “Jonathan is...

The veteran defensive tackle didn’t play in Friday night’s preseason game against the Panthers.

Panthers QB Newton shrugs off bad series against Patriots in preseason

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers put together a terrible offensive performance on Friday night against the New England Patriots, but the reigning MVP isn’t too concerned about it.

New England Patriots: Assessing the quarterback position

For the past 15 years or so, the quarterback position for the New England Patriots has rarely been in question.  That’s what happens when future hall-of-famer Tom Brady is taking the snaps for your team.  With the exception of 2008, when he was sidelined for the season after tearing both his ACL and MCL, Brady has been the one consistent part of the New England roster ever since...

Patriots-Panthers Notes: Terrance Knighton’s Roster Spot In Question After DNP

The New England Patriots already have cut ties with four veterans this preseason. After the events of Friday night, it would not be surprising if Terrance Knighton soon became the fifth. Knighton, a 30-year-old defensive tackle, did not play a single snap in the Patriots’ third game of the preseason — an ominous sign for a player who already had been pushed toward the fringes...

Marshawn Lynch signs Patriots shirt with ‘Beast Mode U B—h’ (pic)

Marshwan Lynch may have eased into retirement after a standout NFL career, but it’s clear he hasn’t forgotten about Super Bowl XLIX. This was made abundantly clear when some autograph seeker had the audacity to ask Lynch to sign a New England Patriots shirt.

Browns ship Barkevious Mingo to Patriots

For the second day in a row, the Patriots were involved in a trade. This time, they’re on the player end of the deal and not the draft-pick end of the deal. That player is Barkevious Mingo.

Jimmy Garoppolo details 'tough situation' taking leadership role

FOXBORO, Mass. — Jimmy Garoppolo and Tom Brady’s complex business relationship is the stuff that imaginative and rabble-rousing radio hosts dream about.

While the extent of the injury was unknown at the time, it’s probably now safe to say it won’t prevent the...
