Morning Cup of Gronk

We checked in on the Patriots crop of undrafted rookie free agents yesterday, and will now turn our attention to the seven draft picks, starting with top picks Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — When the New England Patriots sought to add receivers through free agency, the reinforcements they found looked very familiar.

FOXBOROUGH — When linebacker Brandon Spikes is in the middle of the field for the Patriots, his reputation as a thumper grows.

FOXBOROUGH — The injuries kept coming, one by one, a seemingly never-ending stream of maladies for safety Josh Barrett.

Robert Kraft has scored himself a “Bourne” beauty.

FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots are inching closer and closer to having a positionless front seven. Designated linebackers are playing defensive end, ends are playing tackle, and the team’s nose tackle doesn’t mind peeking outside either.

After signing his franchise tag and squabbling back and forth with his team over negotiations and whether they were fair, Patriots receiver Wes Welker might be playing his final season in New England.
