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.

When news broke of the Patriots potentially working to get an extension done with cornerback Darrelle Revis, several people around the league rolled their eyes and said to themselves, “Robert Kraft is at it again.&rdquo

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
07/29/2014 - 10:08pm
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.
Christopher Price
07/25/2014 - 3:01pm
FOXBORO -- Over the first two practices of training camp, no player has stood out more than wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins.
Christopher Price
07/24/2014 - 10:31pm
FOXBORO -- The only people not bursting at the seams around Foxboro when it comes to talking about Darrelle Revis are the coaches.

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

FOXBORO -- Darrelle Revis and Bill Belichick weren’t always pals.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- They all are members of a club they'd rather not be a part of.

For all of the furor that was made over what the Patriots lost in their passing game last offseason, it’s worth mentioning that things are considerably different this offseason.

FOXBORO -- When it comes to planning for the future at the quarterback position, the struggles of Indianapolis’ transition from Peyton Manning to Andrew Luck weren’t lost on
