This week the Patriots 2014 preseason schedule was announced and we broke down what it means for training camp. Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones stopped by Gillette Stadium this week. Jackie Brittian caught up with both players and asked them how the offseason is going. Ninkovich also talked about his excitement to play with Darrelle Revis and said that the team has to win it all this time. Additionally, we looked back at some of Brandon Bolden's best football memories and asked Michael Buchanan about some of his favorite things.
One player who's looking forward to playing New England next year is former Patriot, Brandon Spikes. Yesterday Spikes tweeted that his Buffalo Bills are going to beat New England twice in 2014.
For the second straight week, the Patriots hosted a quarterback prospect at Gillette Stadium. On Tuesday, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger became the fourth quarterback to meet with the team this offseason. For a better understanding of each player's strengths and weaknesses, we reviewed all the top quarterback prospects in this year's draft. As draft day draws near, the NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah and Curtis Conway went inside the Patriots' draft room and explained which prospects could help the team win a fourth Super Bowl ring.
The Patriots cheerleader preliminary auditions were last weekend. We went behind the scenes to see what it takes to become a part of the team. The final auditions will be held on Saturday April 19th. And the new Gillette Stadium FieldTurf installation is almost finished. Check out some of the pictures from stadium's the new facelift.
On a lighter note, Chandler Jones had some fun on Tuesday and stopped by the office to thank a select few season ticket members over the phone.
