Rookies, rookies everywhere! Maroney's shoulder status? He's still taking care. And it sounds like Seau might end up back here.

It's like freshman orientation in college.

This past Saturday and Sunday, Patriots rookie draft picks and undrafted free agents gathered at the Dana Farber Field House behind Gillette Stadium to take part in their first professional mini camp. It was a good primer for what they should expect in late July, when training camp gets going.

Nearly every media outlet that covers the Pats was in attendance, all of them focusing on different stories or particular players to cover.

The Boston Globe takes an overview of the entire weekend in today's feature, while the Boston Herald focuses on top picks Brandon Meriweather and Kareem Brown.

The Providence Journal looks at QB Matt Gutierrez and BC product Larry Anam, while MetroWest Daily News examines the tough start by sixth-rounder Corey Hilliard. And the Worcester Telegram & Gazette features inside linebacker Oscar Lua.

Elsewhere this past weekend, Kevin Faulk held his celebrity softball game Saturday night, but many eyes were on his fellow running back.

Laurence Maroney had shoulder surgery this offseason (though it's still not clear which shoulder), and even though he only umpired, it appeared he was being very careful.

And when we last saw Junior Seau, the linebacker was being escorted off the field here at Gillette after breaking his arm during the Bears game. Media reports out west, where he lives, say Seau's just days away from re-signing with New England.

Something to keep an eye on...Seau's locker here in Foxboro is still intact.
