News Blitz 6/13: Patriots WR Josh Boyce opening eyes at OTAs

Posted Jun 13, 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 second-year wideout Josh Boyce is looking comfortable with the team's offense during OTAs.

"Often referred to as 'JB' by quarterback Tom Brady and teammates, Boyce now feels he is playing faster, a result of having a better understanding of the offense," adds Reiss. "The touchdown catch from Garoppolo on Thursday provided some on-field evidence of that." READ MORE>>

Erik Frenz of Boston.com writes that Julian Edelman has once again looked like the Patriots top receiver during OTAs.

"It is noteworthy that Brady hasn't been locking in on Edelman throughout practice, instead spreading the ball around to Kenbrell Thompkins, Josh Boyce and Danny Amendola," adds Frenz. "So far, though, Edelman is the clearcut top receiver on the field." READ MORE>>

Phil Perry of CSNNE.com writes that former free agent DT Kevin Williams has signed with the Seattle Seahawks after visiting with the Patirots last Thursday.

"The 6-foot-5, 311-pounder will be 34 years old in August but he may have provided New England with some depth on the interior of its defensive line given that Vince Wilfork, Tommy Kelly, Dominique Easley and Armond Armstead -- the last three were not spotted at Thursday's OTA -- are all returning from injury," adds Perry.

Doug Kyed of NESN.com believes that Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins was one of the "winners" during OTAs.

"The Thompkins hype started last spring when he shined during OTAs and the preseason. KT is at it again this offseason, and he appears to have bulked up to over 200 pounds," writes Kyed. "If Thompkins has a good grasp of the playbook in 2014, he should make big strides." READ MORE>>

Christopher Price of WEEI.com writes that Patriots LB James Anderson's coverage skills could bring a new dimension to the New England defense.

"The Patriots have been lacking a coverage linebacker the last few seasons, and if he’€™s able to pick up the scheme, the 6-foot-2, 235-pound Anderson could fill that role, working alongside a cadre of linebackers that includes Jerod Mayo, Jamie Collins and Dont’€™a Hightower," adds Price.
