Football Outsiders: Can CB Stephon Gilmore help the Patriots cover the top receivers on the schedule?

Gilmore doesn’t have experience shadowing opposing #1 receivers. He’ll get his chance in New England.

Birthday boy Tom Brady and veterans enjoy lighter workout on lower practice field

At one point during practice today, birthday boy Tom Brady and the entire starting offense disappeared from the main field.Brady & Co. were dispatched to the lower practice field, with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in tow. Joining them, were four members of the secondary (Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung, Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler). This is the field where the injured players typically work out. Brady and crew were there for roughly 45 minutes, pretty much out of sight of the fans gathered in the stands watching the workout on the main field.

Behind the three roster locks, roles are not as clearly distributed. Second-year players Cyrus Jones and Jonathan Jones have seen lots of practice reps during minicamp, while...
