Patriots Training Camp Open Thread: Day 1

Open thread for the first day of Patriots training camp.

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

After a long offseason of distractions, we can finally focus on the reason this community exists: football.

Sure, we'll continue to hear about the likes of Aaron Hernandez and Alfonzo Dennard, but we'll finally have something else to distract us.

The New England Patriots kick off training camp today with a 9:00 AM practice that will run until approximately 11:30 with media availability to players coming afterwards. We’ll update this thread with any major news to come out of the practice session. But also feel free to use it to discuss what we hear.

The first two days of practice are expected to be light due to the new CBA rules. No full pads will be allowed, so expect it to be similar in nature to OTA’s and minicamp.

Still, we could get an idea of what players are fully healthy and ready to go, and what players continued to make strides during the offseason.

Let’s go!
