Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source to Pats news and analysis from around the web.

Defensive back Jemea Thomas has signed his contract with the Patriots. I really like Thomas’ game. He is extremely versatile (which is something Bill Belichick loves), and he is very physical for his size. I hope he not only makes the final cut with New England, but gets on the field for important playing time, and makes a solid impact for the Pats defense.

Undrafted rookie Travis Hawkins has some interesting quotes involving his new NFL squad, and the ‘Madden’ video game.

“Madden is a game you grow up playing, and I always used the Patriots, and now that I’m with the Patriots it’s crazy.”

In case you haven’t heard by now, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now facing an additional murder charge. This one is from a Boston double-murder back in 2012.

And finally, Richard Hill of ‘Pats Pulpit’ gives some last thoughts on second round pick Jimmy Garoppolo. These are some excellent points brought up by Hill, definitely worth the read.
