News Blitz 6/10: Jerod Mayo a full participant in OTAs

Posted Jun 10, 2014

The Patriots.com News Blitz gets you up-to-date on the latest Patriots news from local and national media.

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston writes that Patriots LB Jerod Mayo has "full clearance" in OTAs following his recovery from a torn pectoral muscle that was suffered last season.

"Mayo, whose role as the primary signal-caller on defense is vital to the team, as he is one of the few players in the front seven to seldom, if ever, come off the field," adds Reiss. "The Patriots struggled to fill his void last year when he went on season-ending injured reserve in mid-October." READ MORE>>

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe writes that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is pushing to have the NFL Draft in Boston, according to comments made by Patriots owner Robert Kraft at the Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards on Monday.

Walsh’s office issued a statement: "The Mayor would love to see the NFL draft come to Boston. He’s a long-time Patriots season ticket holder.

"As he has said previously, Boston has the resources and the infrastructure to host the draft here, and we would welcome the opportunity." READ MORE>>

Phil Perry of CSNNE.com writes that Patriots DL Dominique Easley remains the only Patriots draft pick who has yet to sign, but adds that it should't be long before a deal is completed.

"All contracts for first rounders are four years in length with a team option for a fifth year," notes Perry. "And since it was announced in early May that the NFL and NFLPA had decided to freeze rookie signing bonuses to keep them at their 2013 values, Easley will get $3,631,672 as the No. 29 pick."

Doug Kyed of NESN.com believes that Patriots DL Chris Jones will be competing with Tommy Kelly, Armond Armstead, Sealver Siliga, Joe Vellano, and L.T. Tuipulotu for a roster spot.

"Jones started 11 games for the Patriots despite catching on with the team after training camp, and he had five sacks through five games before his numbers started slowing down," writes Kyed. "Jones’ run-stopping ability increased throughout the year, though, and he’s trying to make a Year 2 leap." READ MORE>>

Christopher Price of WEEI.com writes that many Patriots veterans have been impressed with QB Jimmy Garoppolo, and adds that he has become a leader among the rookies.

"In last Thursday’s practice session, the first action for Garoppolo in full view of the media, there were some good throws and some bad throws, including an interception on a ball picked off by linebacker Chris White," notes Price. "All in all, a rookie performance in the rain that was probably about par for the course for a young quarterback at this time of the offseason." READ MORE>>
