Bennett: Working with new QBs is like dating

FOXBORO — When it comes to developing chemistry with two different — and new — quarterbacks at the same time, Martellus Bennett doesn’t see an issue.

“I’ve dated two girls at the same time before,” the tight end said with a smile shortly after Friday morning practice.

There are only two training camp workouts in the books, and the pads have yet to go on, but it’s been hard not to notice Bennett’s impact, regardless of who is throwing him the ball. He had a dynamite catch the back of the end zone over Patrick Chung on a pass from Jimmy Garoppolo in 7-on-7 work on Friday, and has showed a nice chemistry with Tom Brady in all phases of work, including their side sessions that also feature Rob Gronkowski.

“Football is just fun. Anytime you get to play is exciting. I ended up on IR, in like, November, so I really haven’t had that much football...

Red Sox aren't on Lucroy's no-trade list

It’s not clear the level of interest the Red Sox have in Jonathan Lucroy, but certainly the fewer roadblocks if trade talks heat up, the better it is for Dave Dombrowski.

That’s why the fact that the Red Sox aren’t on Lucroy’s no-trade list is of some note.

According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the list of eight teams the Milwaukee catcher can block trades to include the Twins, Angels, Athletics, Padres, Mariners, Nationals, Indians and Tigers.

Perhaps the most noteworthy of those teams mentioned are Cleveland and Detroit, both of which have reportedly shown interest in the 30-year-old. It doesn’t mean Lucroy can’t be dealt to those teams, just that he must approve any deal.

Some of the other organizations who have been linked to talks for Lucroy, besides the Red Sox, include the Mets and Rangers.

Lucroy is slated to make $5.25 million next season, a number he could possibly renegotiate...

Edelman, Amendola seem to be nearing returns

FOXBORO — While wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola haven’t participated yet in the first of two Patriots training camp sessions as they both are on PUP, it would appear they are making strides towards joining the rest of the team.

Edelman had offseason foot surgery after missing significant time last year with a broken foot, while Amendola had minor offseason surgeries on his knee and ankle.

The two were on the field for the second straight day, but didn’t participate in any drills. At the beginning of Friday’s session the two threw passes back and forth with one another for a good portion of time and then during practice ran hills together for about five minutes.

This is promising news for both of them as if they weren’t close to be returning, they wouldn’t be doing...

Brady gets frustrated at Patriots practice

FOXBORO — The Patriots had their second practice of training camp on Friday morning during a break in the rain on the backfields of Gillette Stadium.

There were several players in various stages of rehab on the field and not in pads including wide receiver Julian Edelman, wide receiver Danny Amendola, wide receiver Nate Washington (after participating Thursday) offensive linemen Sebastian Vollmer and defensive lineman Alan Branch. However, the following players were not spotted on the field at all: Dion Lewis, Nate Ebner and Tre’ Jackson.

Jamie Collins returned after missing Thursday, while cornerbacks Logan Ryan and safety Duron Harmon were in red, non-contact jerseys for a second straight day.

Here are some observations from the nearly two-hour session:

— Unlike Thursday, Tom Brady led the 11-on-11 drills,...
