FOXBORO — Like a protagonist in a Clint Eastwood Western, Logan Mankins has never been much for small talk. Case in point: When he was asked Thursday why he signed his one-year, $10.1 million franchise tender so quickly, Mankins responded with a small smirk.

FOXBORO — Few coaches are better at helping troubled NFL stars author a successful second act that Bill Belichick, and Albert Haynesworth is hoping that the Patriots coach can do it again.

FOXBORO — A relatively subdued Chad Ochocinco met the New England media for the first time following his first padded practice with the Patriots on Saturday morning, and while he was his usual quotable self — “Can I get a group hug, real quick from everybody?” he asked at th

FOXBORO — The guy who drew most of the attention at Patriots’ practice Friday morning wasn’t even dressed for football.

FOXBORO — The addition of Chad Ochocinco to the Patriots brings a new dimension to the New England passing game, one the Patriots have lacked since Randy Moss was dealt last October: A big receiver

FOXBORO — It only took a few moments to realize that training camp had changed.

With training camp set to open for real on Thursday morning, the Patriots face the same amount of questions as any one of the other 31 teams in the league. We asked you for your top concerns, and in a modified mailbag, here are some of the readers’ most important questions — solicited via Twitter — facing the 2011 Patriots as the season gets underway:

FOXBORO — It was back to the business of football Tuesday morning at Gillette Stadium, as the Patriots returned to work for the first time since the NFL lockout ended.

When the business of football resumes — presumably, sometime this coming week — it will kick start a series of events the likes of which the NFL has never seen. Teams will have to hit the ground running, getting used to the new rules and regulations while scrambling to find free agents and getting their own rookies signed in a handful of days.

The NFL remains in limbo. On Thursday afternoon, the owners signed off on a new collective bargaining agreement, but late Thursday night, the players wouldn’t agree to the proposal, ultimately extending the longest work stoppage in the history of the league by at least one more day.

FOXBORO — For the franchise, she was more than a typical NFL owners’ wife. She was part den mother to young families, part moral compass for the team and a true partner to her husband, Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft.

It now appears that both NFL players and owners stand on the precipice of a new deal.

During a regular NFL offseason, the time between the start of June and end of July is usually full of announcements about rookies signing their first contracts. But with the lockout, that — like everything else in the league — has been put on hold.

Earlier in his professional career, Ellis Hobbs was always in a hurry. Whether it was as a cornerback keeping pace with a speedy wide receiver or accelerating past defenders as one of the best kick returners in the league, the former Patriots defensive back was always in a rush.

For Heath Evans, the choice is simple: The former Patriots fullback — who played in New England from 2005 until 2008 and spent the last two seasons with New Orleans — is a free agent, but is unapologetic when it comes to where he’d like to end up.

For the last few years, it’s been Gillette south, a workout facility where present and former Patriots can gather and stay in shape in the South Florida sun.

NORTON — Each day the lockout continues, it chips away at an extremely valuable time for the NFL’s rookie class.

PEABODY — A year ago, the buildup for Wes Welker’s football camp was just as big for area football fans as it was for the campers who attended: It was the first time many New Englanders had a chance to see Welker running and cutting and catching passes with campers just months after he su
