LeGarrette BlountADP: 79.4 RB: 30 The 2014 season got off to a rough start for LeGarrette Blount.

New England Patriots: Most Disappointing Players in Preseason

I am a firm believer that a player/prospect deserves a chance to show there talent. Your not going to get a chance in the NFL if you don't have some talent, but can you display it?  Rookies coming in to the Patriots training camp need time, to learn and grow into the system. Coaches look for signs that a player is "getting it", and evaluating there progress, while teaching techniques...

New England Patriots FB James Develin Suffers Broken Leg After Getting Slung Down In Tackle

The fullback is a position that many teams do not even carry anymore, but there are still some teams out there that use them (and their running backs are very grateful). They are great for throwing lead blocks for their running backs, but when they get the ball it is fun to watch them work. They are not speedy, but they are not slow either. They are, however, some big ole boys.The...

The gulf between the end of the previous season’s Super Bowl and the start of the new NFL season seems like an interminable one.
