PATRIOTS BEAT: Candid, human Belichick addresses Hernandez situation
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Bill Belichick is often depicted as cold, detached, unfeeling, dour.

Wednesday afternoon, he was none of those.

Speaking for approximately 22 minutes in a press conference specifically called to address the Aaron Hernandez situation before training camp begins Friday, the New England Patriots head coach was candid and very human.

NFL: Brady, Pats want to get back to football
BY MIKE LOWE

Football.

That's all the New England Patriots want to think about now.

Coming off a tumultuous offseason they'd rather forget -- with former tight end Aaron Hernandez arrested and charged with murder; with leading receiver Wes Welker leaving via free agency for Peyton Manning and the Broncos; with tight end Rob Gronkowski undergoing multiple surgeries that will delay his return -- the Patriots just want get back to football.

PATRIOTS BEAT: Tebow doing his job, whatever that is
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tim Tebow said he understood why the question was being asked.

“That’s part of doing your job,” said Tebow to the reporter who asked if he was shocked by the allegations and charges against Aaron Hernandez, his former teammate at the University of Florida who now sits in a nearby prison cell charged with murder.

But, Tebow continued, “Part of (my job) is listening to instructions.”

Patriots' backfield is ready to move forward
With changes aplenty in the New England offense, the running game could carry a much bigger load than in 2012.
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen joined the New England Patriots on the same day, a mere 17 picks separating them in the 2011 draft.

This may be the year the two share the marquee with the team's top players.

With Tom Brady needing to adjust to a new corps of receivers -- the top seven pass catchers from last year

Washington's intent is to be a team player for Patriots
The running back and return specialist would love to see more offensive snaps, but his focus is on winning.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Leon Washington is ready to do more than just return kicks and punts for the New England Patriots.

But if that's all the free agent signee gets to do for his new team, he sounds ready to live with it.

"Ever since I was a rookie, I was always a team player," Washington said Sunday, after the team's first full-pads practice. "That's been my main focus. Knowing I could do so many different things well -- running the ball, catching the ball, returning kicks, (I) even made tackles (on special teams) sometimes in my career.

McDaniels: Patriots' receivers better catch on fast
Departures, injuries and an arrest spell opportunity for rookies, but opening day for the Patriots is just six weeks away.
By HOWARD ULMAN

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — It's back to basics for New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and his new group of young receivers

Gone are four wide receivers aged 32 and over who caught passes last season. Now six of the team's 12 players at that position are rookies.

"All of us coaches enjoy teaching so much," McDaniels said Monday.

"It's different when you're coaching players that haven't heard it before and you have to tell yourself to start from the beginning and continue to progress slowly because you can't just assume anything, and we've really tried to do that."

Tebow will play mostly QB with Pats

While New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick continues to dance around how he’ll employ Tim Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner appears to be settling in at quarterback, according to a Boston Globe report.

“Ninety-nine percent of Tebow’s activity during his time with the Patriots has been spent learning to play quarterback in the team’s system,” writes the Globe’s Ben Volin. “He has only spent time in the quarterback meeting room, he wears a red non-contact jersey on the field and he runs the third-team offense during team drills.”

Jones has prepared hard for Patriots season
By JEFF HOWE

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Sometimes, the finest details can yield the most advantageous changes.

For Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones, the offseason was dedicated to learning more about himself. The greatest jumps in Year 2 occur because players devote themselves to becoming professionals. Those who recognize that fact can excel.
