On Saturday, the Patriots hit the practice fields on the combines of Gillette Stadium for their third day of Training Camp. Today was the first day of camp that the Patriots were able to wear pads while practicing. After practice, there were a few players that spoke with the media.

Let's take a look at a few soundbites from Day Three:

Offensive Lineman Robert Gallery On Whether Or Not He's Worried About His Competition

"It doesn't really affect me at all," said Gallery. "I come to work every day, work on what I have to do to get better as a player, and all that stuff will play itself out."

"I'm just here to work on my skill, and get better every day," said Gallery. "And do what I can do to help the team, and then it'll all be decided once the camp's over."

Rookie DE/OLB Jake Bequette On His Contact With Dont'a Hightower Before Coming To New England

"We never really talked other than handshakes before games at the coin toss. But obviously he's a very competitive guy. He was a great player at Alabama. We had some great battles back in college, but we're up here as teammates now, so we're just trying to help each other and get better."

Undrafted Rookie Running Back Brandon Bolden On Learning The Patriots Playbook

"It's everything step by step, day by day," Bolden said. "I mean you just got to take your playbook and just try to eat as much as you can up at one time. Just try and get in there and get in your book and come out and bring it on the field. And just try to get better each and every day."
