The biggest news this Thursday is that the Patriots have been nominated for four ESPY Awards. Fans can vote now in advance of the show, which takes place in mid-July. has a post about Josh McDaniels and how the Patriots OC continues to be talked about as a head coaching candidate.

In the Boston Herald, there's a "now-what" piece regarding Tom Brady and his appeal, plus former Patriot Matt Light has some harsh words for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and his handling of Tom Brady's DeflateGate situation. has a column about how the NFL had it in for the Patriots from the start in that matter.
