He's there. He and Brady engaged in a good-natured tussle over Brady's jersey. ;D

Haha yeah I saw.

Hopefully the Red Sox are motivated to get their fourth since 2004.

They've seen the Pats come by twice in the last three years.

Brady should've worn a shirt with a giant 6 on it.

Curran had some good speculation on this whole AP thing.  I think there could be some truth to the agent idea.

Quote
So, why’d the Patriots have him in?

My theory? They’re doing a solid for Peterson’s agent, Ben Dogra. Once one of the league’s most powerful reps when he was at CAA, Dogra was just reinstated in February by the NFLPA. The Patriots always had good relationships with Dogra. Now, as he’s trying to regain his foothold, his most recognizable client – Peterson – can’t get a sniff around the league. There’s no better way to make other organizations – owners especially – perk up than to get the Patriots imprimatur on Peterson even if it’s just a visit.

As Mike Florio points out, the Patriots could have done a low-key tire-kicking with Peterson.

Instead, The Oracle – Adam Schefter - had it Sunday night. Florio thinks it’s to put the heat on LeGarrette Blount and says a Peterson signing is unlikely. I think it’s a mere back-scratching for Dogra that the team hopes Dogra may remember somewhere down the line when doing a deal.

What we do agree on is that Adrian Peterson won’t be a Patriot.

So you all probably heard what happened with Romo today (his decision to "retire" and work at CBS in the broadcasts).

This might help NE out in some ways.

For starters, it means HOU and DEN AREN'T getting Romo, so there should be no other threats in the AFC besides maybe OAK.

Also, now Jimmy G. is the best available QB out there that's not in the NFL Draft. Might drive his price up a bit if a team is desperate and the Pats are willing to deal him for a treasure chest of picks.

I was definitely worried Houston or Denver would pick him up and become real contenders right away.

I wouldn't be joking about Houston.

If they added Romo to go along with that elite defense, they could have been a threat.

I wasnt joking. Both those teams are a quarterback away in my opinion. Houston is probably better. I think denver is getting a bit old. That spending spree from a few years ago is beginning to takes its toll on depth over there.

Oh my bad, sorry haha.

Yeah I think DEN O-Line is still an issue honestly, so even with Romo they'd struggle a bit.

Also Denver's defense isn't as good as it was a few years ago (still great, but not elite).

So apparently, SEA are "seriously" listening to offers for Sherman and are ACTUALLY considering trading him. (According to their GM)

Still a huge long shot, but he has said he wouldn't mind a trade to NE.

Again, it's a huge long shot, but something to monitor I guess as draft day approaches.

The thing is, Pats also don't have any 1st/2nd rounders as of now.. which is a slight problem.

Romo is replacing Simms next season, FWIW, so it seems his playing days are over.

Well, it seems they could easily re-acquire their #32 if they let Butler go to NO. I am not sure if that is enough to get Sherman or if two years of Sherman at big money is worth the pick and Butler, but it certainly would make us ultra-dominant at the CB position for the next two years.
