News Blitz 5/22: Easley is thrilled to work with Wilfork
"That's what a lot of teams saw in him. He just has this freakish talent that you don't see all the time," said the rehab specialist.
"You know how [Atkins] can get on the edge fast?" Quinn said. "I think that's one of the things that Dom does, where he can get on the edge on you real quick."
Yesterday, the Patriots reportedly worked out four players including two running backs (Ronnie Brown, Brian Leonard) and two tight ends (Ben Hartsock, Nate Byham). NBC Sports' Mike Wilkening says that Leonard, Byham, and Hartsock would be brought in specifically for blocking. All four players are above the age of 30.

"It's a defensive spot that isn't necessarily going to make the defense. But with the wrong guy making the wrong decisions, it sure can break it," writes Curran.
