Bill Belichick says LB Jonathan Freeny is ‘one of our overall top workers’

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is known to brush over the big names and gush over the lesser known player and one for example is linebacker Jonathan Freeny. As the much of the attention goes to the much deserved big names in Dont’a Hightower, Jabaal Sheard, and Jamie Collins, Belichick reminded there’s more in that group that needs some recognition. “Jonathan is...

Panthers QB Newton shrugs off bad series against Patriots in preseason

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers put together a terrible offensive performance on Friday night against the New England Patriots, but the reigning MVP isn’t too concerned about it. Playing deep into the third quarter, Newton never got into a rhythm, never found his comfort zone and looked altogether disheveled. He finished with a final line that would make Geno Smith blush...

Browns ship Barkevious Mingo to Patriots

For the second day in a row, the Patriots were involved in a trade. This time, they’re on the player end of the deal and not the draft-pick end of the deal. That player is Barkevious Mingo.

Tom Brady's thumb injury appears to be very minor
