Bill Belichick: Rob Gronkowski ‘cleared to play’ at 8:50 am ET
By   |  No Comments

FOXBORO — Bill Belichick said Wednesday that Rob Gronkowski has been in the facility in the days leading up to training camp, and has been “cleared to play.”

As a result, the tight end — who ended last year on injured reserve after a knee injury against the Browns — apparently will not start the year on the physically unable to perform list.

“Rob has always worked hard. He worked hard as a rookie,” Belichick said of the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski. “He’s been consistent.”

In four seasons with the Patriots, Gronkowski has 226 catches for 3,255 yards and 42 touchdowns. However, he’s been dogged by injury issues, including problems with his knee, back and forearm.

Report: Patriots add Dominique Easley to NFI list, while Alfonzo Dennard and Aaron Dobson will start camp on PUP 07.21.14 at 5:27 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

With camp looming later this week, the Patriots reportedly made some procedural roster moves Monday designed to allow some of players who are injured or coming off offseason surgery more time to rehab before they get on the field.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, defensive lineman Dominique Easley, running back Roy Finch, linebacker Deontae Skinner and tackle Chris Martin have been placed on the non-football injury list.

Meanwhile, cornerback Alfonzo Dennard; wide receivers Aaron Dobson and Jeremy Gallon; defensive tackle Tommy Kelly and special teamer Matt Slater were placed on the physically unable to perform list. Most of the players in this grouping were either limited (working with a rehab group) or not present during the media portion of the spring workouts.

In both cases — the active/physically unable to perform list as well as the active/non-football injury list — they can come off the list and return to practice at any time after they have been cleared by the team’s medical staff.

One thing worth noting is that both lists do not include tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive lineman Vince Wilfork and linebacker Jerod Mayo, all of who suffered season-ending injuries last year.

It’s no surprise New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski enjoyed himself at the Beyonce-Jay Z concert Tuesday night, but it was somewhat surprising who joined Gronkowski dancing in the crowd at Gillette Stadium — Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

If it wasn’t clear in that video, Gronkowski was in the blue shirt dancing alongside Kraft.

Julian Edelman appeared on NFL Network’s “Total Access” Monday night, and talked about a wide variety of topics, including Darrelle Revis, Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Here are a few quick highlights:

On Revis:

“Darrelle is one of the best corners in the NFL and he showed that in camp. He did very well. He’s a very instinctive player. He’s great in the locker room, I like competing against him every day, and it’s good to have a player like that.”

On Gronkowski possibly playing in Week 1:

“Well, I’m not a doctor or trainer or anything. I see Gronk in the locker room, he’s working hard, doing what he’s trying to do. But when Gronk’s on the field, he’s probably one of the best tight ends in the NFL. It’s always great to have him out there and hopefully he will be.”

On Brady wanting to play until he’s 40:

“It wouldn’t surprise me. Knowing him the way I know him, I am sure he’s just focused on this year. You’re going to have to ask him that. The guy is in here, working hard, preparing to the fullest ability, taking care of his body. So you know that he’ll definitely have a shot to do it.”

On whether Belichick has watched his “Burgertyme” and “Smoothie Tyme” videos:

“You know, I’m sure he did. Because they kind came off his original, I think it was called the Bill PB&J [show] with the two pieces of bread in between with double layers of peanut butter. So I think we actually stole the concept from Bill Belichick.”

On what he remembers from the Patriots’ Week 12 win over the Broncos after being down 24-0 at the half:

“I remember we won. That was a good memory. That we won that one. No, but seriously — at halftime, we couldn’t have done anything worse than what we were putting on the field in the first half. We kind of just took it as, ‘We can’t get any worse than what we did so let’s go out there and just play each series the way we have to and just try to string a couple of consistent drives up,’ and we were able to do that. We played complimentary football in the second half, and came out with the win.”

Darrelle Revis lands at No. 37 in NFL Network’s ‘Top 100′ countdown 06.18.14 at 10:06 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

Darrelle Revis became the second member of the Patriots to land on the NFL Network’s Top 100, checking in at No. 37 on the countdown Wednesday night.

A three-time first-team All-Pro who will turn 29 next month, the 6-foot, 205-pound Revis has spent seven years in the league — six with the Jets (2007-12) and one with Tampa Bay (2013). He has 21 career picks to his credit, with his best season coming in 2009 when he had six. He signed with the Patriots as a free agent on March 12 after being released by the Bucs.

Rob Gronkowski was the first New England player to make the list, landing at No. 41.
