The Surprise: New England Patriots unveil a wrinkle at practice

While perusing the links today, Marima mentioned a wrinkle:

Christopher Price offers this tantalizing tidbit from yesterday afternoon's practice.

Toward the end of practice, the Patriots unveiled a new offensive wrinkle. We would love to reveal more, but rules (specifically, rule No. 1 in the "General Media Training Camp Policy" that states, "Please do not report on offensive or defensive strategy. This includes describing formations, personnel groups or non-conventional plays.") prevent us from saying any more.

In the comments section, SlotMachinePlayer postulated Wildcat with Julian Edelman. When Julian was drafted, many of us figured he'd end up in some kind of Wildcat type situation. The guy's listed as a wide receiver, but you can add quarterback and running back to his credentials and, after his 75 yard kick return against the Eagles in our preseason opener, put kick returner on top of that. Maybe he can disarm bombs, too.

At any rate, I thought it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on what this wrinkle might be. To get the ball rolling, I've setup a Poll with a few of my thoughts. Let's hear it.
