Welcome to The Patriots Way – New England Patriots News and links from around the web
- The Patriots made a few roster moves, primarily dealing with the lower spots on the roster. These moves may seem minor, but longshots have made big impacts on previous Patriots teams.
- NFL.com has the projected starters for the Patriots. The offensive skill positions look thin, and the defense will likely change week to week based on matchups, but it certainly looks vastly improved from the squad thrown out there last year.
- Bill Belichick loves his four down players, which certainly has had a positive impact on the special teams for the Patriots.
- Belichick recently did an interview on Sirius radio, touching on a number of different topics. The most interesting note is his take on first round pick Dominique Easley. He also spoke about quarterback Ryan Mallett and trade rumors.
- In what looks like an “in case of emergency” move, the Patriots hosted free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas for a visit.
- Post draft NFL power rankings put the Patriots right where you would expect them to be. I fully expect the Patriots to lurk in the background when it comes to power rankings, win their division and make a playoff run.
