The Patriots have a busy week next week with OTAs kicking off, but Bill Belichick seemed to enjoy himself on Saturday by taking in the Preakness Stakes with girlfriend Linda Holliday.

Holliday posted a picture of the two to Instagram with the caption: Awesome day at the Preakness!

Here is the picture.

Appearing on CBS This Morning earlier this week, Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen said her husband has sustained multiple concussions over the course of his career, including one last year.

“You know, as a wife, I am a little bit — as you know it’s an aggressive sport,” she said. “Football, like he had a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much — I mean we don’t talk about it, but he does have concussions. I don’t really think it is a healthy thing for your body to go through, through that kind of aggression all the time. That can’t be healthy. I am planning on him be healthy and do lots of things when we’re 100 I hope.”

Later that day, the NFL released a statement saying it has no record of Brady sustaining a concussion last season. And now Friday, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brady’s agent Don Yee also said his client was not diagnosed with a concussion last season.

“Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year,” Yee said. “Many of the protocols and safeguards still are evolving, and it’s obviously a good thing the organization and everyone close to him is vigilant and always looking out for his health.”

In Brady’s 17 years in the league, he’s never been listed on an injury report with a concussion.

It seemed like the Patriots wanted LeGarrette Blount back and Blount wanted to return, but in the end it just didn’t work out.

The Patriots signed running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee this offseason and then Blount signed a one-year-deal with the Eagles this week.

It seemed like the Patriots wanted LeGarrette Blount back and Blount wanted to return, but in the end it just didn’t work out.

The Patriots signed running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee this offseason and then Blount signed a one-year-deal with the Eagles this week.

Speaking for the first time with the Philadelphia media, Blount called the Eagles a “perfect fit.”

“This is a perfect fit for me,” Blount said to reporters. “I’ve done everything I wanted to do. I won two Super Bowls with those guys. I don’t regret a single second of being there because I loved it there. They had some of the best years of football that you could ever remember.”

Added Blount: “I chose the Eagles for the reason of me fitting in really good here [and] the chance of me making the team, having a championship run, having a banner season. And they’re a really good team. They’re a really good team before I came. I just want to fit in.”

Blount will be part of a running back by committee with the Eagles, but that doesn’t bother him in the least.

“I’ve played with other running backs before,” he said. “I split time with Stevan Ridley. I split with Cadillac Williams [in Tampa Bay]. I’ve split with guys before, so it doesn’t bother me.”

The 30-year-old led the NFL with 18 rushing touchdowns last season, and his legacy in New England is certainly a positive one by winning two Super Bowls.

Former Patriots center Bryan Stork is no longer in the NFL, but he’s still staying involved with football.

Stork announced via Twitter on Thursday night that he has accepted a graduate assistant job with Southern Mississippi football coaching the offensive line. Last month Stork said he’s become a licensed realtor.

The 26-year-old played two seasons in the NFL after being drafted in the fourth round by the Patriots in 2014. He played in 21 career games, but battled concussions which kept him off the field.

David Andrews beat Stork out for the starting center job last year during training camp. The Patriots traded him to the Redskins, but after he failed his physical the trade was rescinded and the Patriots ultimately released him.

On March of this year, he announced his retirement from the NFL.
