Patriots.com News Blitz - 7/17/2006

In today's news blitz... The Standard-Times offers an article on rookie linebacker Jeremy Mincey. The Boston Globe's Mike Reiss breaks down the quarterback position and Boston Globe writer Jerome Solomon explains the logistics of Branch's contract.  It's all in today's Patriots.com News Blitz.

Jonathan Darling of the Standard-Times offers a story on Patriots sixth-round draft pick Jeremy Mincey, who is expected to take the place of departed linebacker Willie McGinest. The 6-foot-3, 260-pound frame gives him the size to fit in a few places on the Patriots' defense. It doesn't hurt, either, that he runs the 40-yard-dash in the 4.6 range. "It was all outside linebacker during minicamp," Mincey said last week. "(The Patriots) like big, physical guys who can run. I just have to keep working hard and making smart decisions and I'll make it."

The Boston Globe's Jerome Solomon checks the books to find out the specifics of Deion Branch's contract with the Patriots. In retrospect, Branch probably wishes he signed a four-year deal as a rookie (with less of a signing bonus), instead of a five-year contract. Soloman compares the contracts of other receivers selected during the 2002 NFL draft.

Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe offers the first in a series of position snapshots in his daily Patriots blog. Today he takes a look at the quarterback postion.
