Patriots DB’s to train with Darrelle Revis again before training camp

Mike Reiss-ESPN Boston

"Darrelle Revis might be on the other side of the Patriots-Jets “Border War” this year, but that hasn’t altered plans for him and a handful of his former Patriots teammates to meet up in Arizona and train together for about two weeks leading up to training camp. Last year, Revis, Devin McCourty, Logan Ryan and Tavon Wilsonprepped for camp by working out in the dry desert heat with trainer/coach Will Sullivan, and McCourty told me they’ll do the same this year, starting July 12. Coincidentally, Revis’ free-agent departure has made Ryan, a 2013 third-round draft pick out of Rutgers, a leading candidate for a starting role this year."

The Top 20 Patriots Moments of 2014: Number 9

Alec Shane-Pats Pulpit

"There are certain times, both in football and in life, where you don’t want to see single digits. On the scoreboard of your favorite team. On the results of my midterm exam. In the rushing yards column. On the list of invitees to my 10th birthday party. In the wins column. On my bank statements. We all get the idea.But when you’re counting down the Most Memorable Patriots Moments of 2014, single digits are a good thing. We’re down to the last nine moments of the wacky, weird, and wild season the Patriots just completed, which can only mean one thing: we’re into the heart of summer and it won’t be too long before training camp starts."

Best of the Belichick Era: Number 31 — David Patten

Tom E. Curran-CSNNE

"“Chief.” That was the nickname Patriots of a certain vintage had for wide receiver David Patten. They called him that because that’s what the 5-10, 192-pound bundle of work ethic called everybody else. A devout Christian, Patten didn’t proselytize religion at his locker but he did thump the Belichick bible. Hard work, work hard, hard work, work hard, do what the coaches want me to do. That was the message he stuck to. Patten is on this list ahead of guys who played for the team longer and in bigger games because of work he did on the foundation of the Patriots dynasty."
