With the regular season looming and cuts just around the corner, it’s only natural to wonder about the final makeup of the 2014 roster.

FOXBORO -- You certainly can’t accuse the Patriots of being complacent.

FOXBORO -- Brian Tyms knows he faces an uphill battle when it comes to winning a roster spot with the Patriots this summer, but he certainly seems like the type of guy who is used to beating the odds.

FOXBORO -- With two weeks of training camp and one preseason game in the books, the 2014 Patriots roster is really starting to take shape.

FOXBORO -- Intangibles like swagger, intensity and attitude can be difficult to measure, but if early returns are any indication, it appears the 2014 Patriots defense won’t have an issue when it comes to playing with an edge.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- Faced with the chance of providing a defensive boost in the secondary or up front this offseason, it appears the Patriots chose the latter.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- If the Patriots end up winning it all this season and the defensive backs play a major role in their success, the franchise might want to think about arranging for Will Sullivan to get a playoff share.

The Seahawks' Super Bowl formula was one that is bound to spawn countless imitators. Some teams decided to supersize their secondaries with the addition of big and rangy defensive backs. Others decided to beef up their ground game. And other teams started looking for the next Russell Wilson.

Despite the fact that the NFL is throwing the ball now more than ever -- one of the reasons behind the fact that the 300-carry “bell cow” appears to be dying out -- the market for fullbacks appears to be pretty robust.

With spring practice sessions in the past and training camp a month away, the 2014 Patriots roster is starting to come into sharper focus.
Christopher Price
06/19/2014 - 5:14pm
FOXBORO -- Darrelle Revis and Bill Belichick weren’t always pals.
Christopher Price
06/19/2014 - 12:35am
FOXBORO -- They all are members of a club they'd rather not be a part of.
