Back home in Oklahoma at the moment, Patriots WR Wes Welkeris taking it easy now, but he says he's ready to start the new season.
"Last year, it was last year. We're on to bigger things now," he said in a *Boston Globe *story.
Also in the Globe, former Pats LB Rosie Colvin, now a Houston Texan, talks about how grateful he is to have played in New England.
"I could go on and on about how you look at Mr. [Robert] Kraft, Scott [Pioli], and Bill [Belichick], and how they run the team as a business. I can look at my experience and being able to play under who I believe will probably go down in history as one of the greatest football coaches ever. The opportunity I had to play alongside future Hall of Famers, guys that have put a tremendous amount of work into their careers, on the football field."
In the Sun Chronicle, backup QB Matt Casselindicates that he's content with his role on the team.
"I feel fortunate and blessed to be in the position that I'm at," he said recently. "Being a backup isn't that bad a deal. To be able to learn from a guy who is going to go down in history as one of the top quarterbacks to ever play the game, it's not like I'm playing behind someone who hasn't proven themselves. You're competing every day against a guy who is the best in the game and I like the fact I get to do that, because it makes me better."
