FOXBORO -- The new guys weren’t talking on Wednesday, but there were plenty of other folks who were willing to discuss the impact that tight end Dan Gronkowski and linebacker A.J. Edds could have on the Patriots.

No position was a hotter topic for the Patriots throughout the preseason than safety.

FOXBORO — Tom Brady once described left guard Logan Mankins as the sort of player “who plays until the echo of the whistle,” meaning there’s a bit of an edge to what he does.
Christopher Price

The Patriots made it official on Sunday, announcing the acquisition of veteran offensive lineman Brian Waters. The 34-year-old guard, a five-time Pro Bowler, is a 6-foot-3, 320-pounder who was cut loose late last month by the Chiefs after 11 seasons in Kansas City.

The Patriots settled on their final 53 on Saturday, sticking with 23 offensive players, 27 defensive players and three special teamers. However, it’s almost a guarantee this list of 53 will not be the same roster they roll out for the season opener against the Dolphins in Miami on Sept. 12.

Most years, the preseason finale is the exclusive domain of the backups, the second- and third-teamers who are getting one last shot at a spot on the 53-man roster. In the wake of last week’s preseason loss to the Lions, some of the starters are expected to play Thursday night against the Giants.

If it’s Monday, it must be time for another edition of roster reset. This is the third shot at predicting who will make the Patriots’ 53-man roster.

In the third preseason game of 2010, the Patriots had plenty of issues: New England struggled defensively against a young Rams’ team that was coming off a sub-.500 season the year before, thanks in large part to an impressive performance by young quarterback Sam Bradford.
Christopher Price
08/26/2011 - 11:14pm
And so, here we are. The third game of the preseason is the dress rehearsal. It’s historically the final chance for the starters to show they’re ready for the regular season before the season opener.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — For all the talk about the Patriots’ renewed commitment to an aggressive pass rush this season, arguably their best and most consistent pass rusher over the last two seasons hasn’t seen action in New England’s first two preseason games.
