News Blitz 8/1: Decker on deck?

20180801_NewsBlitz_2500x1406

As the Patriots resume training camp practices today, we have word that the team worked out a veteran wide receiver, Eric Decker, earlier this week. That's according to an ESPN report.

Decker wasn't shy back in June when he came out publicly to state that he thought he was "a good fit" for New England. With WR Jordan Matthews seemingly having tweaked his right hamstring over the weekend, perhaps Decker's proclamation will prove accurate. New England is somewhat thin at the receiver position and is slated to lose Julian Edelman for the first month of the regular season due to an NFL suspension.

Yesterday having been a day off for the Patriots, The Boston Globe offers an assessment of the first five days of training camp, which happened before Tuesday's respite.

A Providence Journal feature says veteran RG Shaq Mason is setting himself up for a big payday in the near future.

The Boston Herald declares that rookie OL Isaiah Wynn is making progress after less than a week of camp practices, as well as one writer's five standouts of Patriots camp thus far.

Boston.com examines Tom Brady's two current backups on the QB roster, while NBC Sports Boston's website offers a closer look at the defensive line competition at camp this summer. The latter outlet also offers its general observations after five camp practices. Boston Sports Journal's website more than double that number, with 11 thoughts on Patriots camp to date, plus a speculative medical opinion on WR Malcolm Mitchell's ailing knee.
