The Patriots offseason has been quite busy thus far with several players coming and going throughout the first week of the new league year. While there are always players lost to free agency, this year has been a little different.
ESPN.com says the Patriots have lost more notable players this season than in most years in the past.
The Boston Globe tries to put all of the recent moves in perspective while also conceding that the team generally loses more talent than it brings in after a Super Bowl appearance. MassLive.com wonders what moves might be next for New England.
One of the newest Patriots, defensive tackle Danny Shelton, chatted with the media on Monday and talked about bringing his dogs to New England. The Boston Globe offers some thoughts on Shelton as well. The Boston Herald says Shelton is ready to lean on Vince Wilfork for some advice.
The Boston Globe writes about Bill Belichick's day on the scouting trail with highly-regarded defensive end Bradley Chubb out of N.C. State. Boston Sports Journal says the Patriots have done well to address needs this offseason pending left tackle.
WEEI.com believes Belichick has a lot of work to do over the next month.
ESPN.com also has Shea McClellin expressing his appreciation for his time in Foxborough after the Patriots released the linebacker on Monday.
