Boston Herald reporter provides injury update on Patriots WR Julian Edelman

We have an update on the Patriots star receiver! The New England Patriots placed seven players on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, which is reserved for players that are physically incapable of taking the field. The list includes the team’s top two receivers in Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. As far as Herald beat writer Jeff Howe is concerned, Edelman’s spot on the list is procedural. “Edelman will be ready very, very soon,” Howe said on 98.5 Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich. “That’s what I was told early in camp over and over again and throughout the offseason. If...

Patriots Training Camp Storylines: How will Chris Hogan fit the offense?

Alec and Rich break down the Patriots WR position Rich I think the wide receiver position is under the biggest microscope moving forward. Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola are both recovering from offseason surgeries and are on the wrong side of 30. The Patriots added Chris Hogan from the division rival Bills in free agency and drafted Malcolm Mitchell in the 4th round. These four players represent the past, present, and future of the wide receiver position and they all have some serious question marks for 2016. Can Edelman and Amendola heal and become key pieces in the offense? Can Hogan...

Falcons 2016 schedule preview: Visiting the Oakland Raiders in Week 2

The Raiders are a good young team, and they’re also the Falcons’ second opponent of the 2016 season. Let’s learn more about them. After the Falcons host the Buccaneers in Week 1 for an early, critical NFC South matchup, they’ll be heading across the country to face off against a promising Oakland Raiders team. This will sneakily be one of the toughest matchups on the schedule. Oakland has a talented young quarterback in Derek Carr, a decent ground game, terrific receivers, and a fearsome defense with a ton of talent under the age of 27. This might not be the year this Raiders team...

Patriots WR Danny Amendola talks about his injury recovery and causing QB Tom Brady to break a ping pong paddle

The Patriots wide receiver spoke about how he’s recovering from his offseason surgery. New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola joined ESPN the other day to discuss his injury recovery, as well as answer questions about the team and the offseason.

I wanted to go into next season feeling as fresh and ready as I can.” Amendola is recovering from a knee and ankle injuries and could potentially start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list....

Entire Patriots defense gets no respect, expected to be left out of the NFL Top 100

The Patriots get the short stick from the NFL rankings. This is absolutely crazy. NFL Media has announced the teams for the players ranked 11th through 20th in the NFL Top 100 of 2016 rankings. The Patriots are not included.

New England Patriots roster breakdown: #45 LB Kevin Snyder

The Patriots’ backup linebacker spots are up for grabs. Can Snyder grab one of them? The mandatory phase of the New England Patriots' offseason workouts is over – at least until training camp starts in late July – and we have re-entered the quieter parts of the NFL calendar. However, while the football world seemingly turns slower these days it does not stop. After all, by late August, each team has to start making its roster cuts. Until then, players have to secure their spots on the team; they need to do their jobs (well) or someone else will. Over the course of the next few weeks,...

Patriots one of four teams focusing on yards after the catch and TE Martellus Bennett is a perfect fit

Bill Belichick is zigging while everyone else is zagging. Make sure you take notes. The New England Patriots passing offense is lauded for its ability to generate yards after the catch. Over the years, players like WR Wes Welker, WR Julian Edelman, and TE Rob Gronkowski have shown a penchant for moving the chains and the reliance on yards after the catch has increased. As the Patriots offensive line has deteriorated, QB Tom Brady has been forced to get rid of the ball more quickly and receivers have been forced to pick up more yards after the catch in order to retain offensive efficiency....

Patriots have two of the top 10 slot players in the NFL, per PFF

We can guess one of the names. Any ideas on the second? Pro Football Focus (PFF) continues their June Rankings with a look at the slot players for teams around the NFL. This isn’t just a look at the Wes Welker clones; it’s an examination of all offensive and defensive players that align in the slot. Patriots WR Julian Edelman comes in 9th place. He spends roughly half of his time in the slot when on the field, but closer to 75% of his time in the slot in two-receiver sets (Danny Amendola plays in the slot on 3 receiver sets). It’s possible that Edelman’s slot usage will spike with...
