Considering that LeGarrette Blount has looked pretty good through two preseason games and Jeff Demps is off running track in Russia, that April swap looks pretty good right now for the Patriots.

‘€œSupposedly he’€™s coming. I don’€™t know. We’€™ll see,’€ Schiano said Tuesday, via ‘€œI don’€™t worry about guys that are not here, you know? So he’€™s not helping us get better right now. He’€™s out there running track somewhere. So, if he’€™s going to do that ‘€” if he gets here and helps us win he will be part of it. If he gets here and can’€™t help us win, he can go back and run track. We are here to win games.’€
