Many have wondered about Brady and Kraft’s relationship with the Deflategate saga, but Kraft offered his support for Brady Friday night at a draft party at Gillette and with him attending this event, it shows the two are just fine.

On this week’s edition of “NFL Sunday,” former Patriots running back Kevin Faulk joined Mike Giardi and Chris Price and talked about his decision to wear a Tom Brady jersey to the podium at the draft Friday night, the fallout that ensued from his decision and the depth of his friendship with the quarterback. Faulk also offered his thoughts on the team going forward and life after football.

FOXBORO — During the offseason, NFL rosters can have a maximum of 90 players.

Following the NFL draft, the Patriots have 85 players and five open spots, but then comes the undrafted free agent signing period and the team appears to be connected to more than five players, putting them over the limit of 90.

Bill Belichick said you can’t always believe what is reported on social media with these signings, as nothing is official until the team reports it, but certainly is something that’s going on.

“Obviously, we talk to a lot of players and I’d say until anything gets official and turned in and the contract is signed, all of that which I have no idea,” Belichick said Saturday. “That’s an ongoing process and as you can imagine there’s 32 teams and hundreds of players and agents and fax machines and phone calls and everything. Sometimes those things get done, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes a guy you think you’re not going to get you get. Sometimes a guy you think you’re going to get you don’t get. Sometimes you get the guy you’re going to get and you lose the guy you think you’re going to lose so we’ll just have to see how it all works out.”

With the players taken in the draft, team’s depth charts can change a great deal over the weekend and also, with all the new players coming aboard some players already on rosters will need to be released to make room for others.

This will all take place in the coming days.

“I think that on Monday’s waiver wire you’re going to see a lot of players on it throughout the league because of players that were drafted or acquired or free agents, whatever it happens to be, that other transactions will offset those or be part of the process so we’ll just have to see how all of that plays out,” Belichick said. “There’s definitely a little bit of juggling there. I’d say the main thing for me would be that if the player’s circumstances change to the point where you don’t really think you can give that player a fair opportunity, then it’s in your best interest and his best interest to move on and let him find a better opportunity somewhere else. I’d say that’s not an infrequent situation.”

As it relates to the Patriots, it appears with the team adding two wide receivers in the draft, wide outs like Chris Harper and DeAndre Carter. Along the offensive line, Chris Barker and Keavon Milton are possibilities to be let go as well.

On the defensive side of the ball, linebacker seem like a position that could see some shuffling as Tony Steward and Kevin Snyder are candidates to be let go.

This is just a reminder that the NFL is a business and there really isn’t any safe time of the year for anyone.

FOXBORO — The Patriots selected Illinois guard Ted Karras with pick No. 221 in the NFL draft.

Karras comes from a big football family as he will be the fifth member of his family to play in the NFL. The biggest name is his great uncle Alex Karras, who was a Pro Bowler and most famously was in the TV show “Webster.”

While that makes him a unique player in terms of his family background, even more unique is his pregame routine of pouring two water bottles on his head and then yelling like a Viking.

“I don’t know where that came from,” Karras said on a conference call Saturday. “It started in high school. I always felt I had to play football being wet. I know that’s kind of weird but that’s about it. I don’t really have that many superstitions. I try to follow the same routine. I know if I play center, I know I’m not going to be able to get that wet.”

Added Karras: “You’re definitely cold, but I’ve never really felt the temperature of a game when I’m playing. When you’re playing, especially O-line, I’m no sleeves, no tights guy. When you’re playing football, there’s no reason to ever think about the temp as an O-lineman.”

Every member of Karras’ family was an offensive lineman and he had no problem following in the family footsteps.

“I mean, I knew from a young age that this is what I wanted to do,” he said. “With my dad being a small college football coach, I was around practices all the time. I was very eager. I know it may not be popular now, but I wanted to play when I was a third-grader. I wanted to play padded football. I knew that was the sport I was going to choose and I liked being a lineman. You’re rewarded for being physical and I thought that was a great part of the game. It suited me well and so far it’s paid off.”
