« Former Patriot Sauerbrun pleads guilty to disturbing the peace |
| Passing camp photos »
May 28, 2008
Hey all -
Unlike last week's Patriots passing camp, which had nearly 100 percent attendance, the sessions the team is holding this week are more sparsely attended.
In all, we counted 36 players on the field (if you really want a list we can provide it), and big names like Tom Brady, Randy Moss and Richard Seymour were not among them. This was more for rookies, players new to New England this season and some vets like Willie Andrews and LeKevin Smith.
Once again, reserve defensive back Ray Ventrone was in a white (offense) jersey and talked a bit about his move to offense after the session. Ventrone said his experience as a receiver is limited, but he's working at the move.
Team owner Robert Kraft was on the field for a while and spent some time talking with special teams coach Brad Seely.
Though rookie Kevin O'Connell was on the field, second-year QB Matt Gutierrez took most of the snaps, and completed a pretty 45-yard pass to CJ Jones at one point. Jones beat Mike Richardson on the play.
Tight end David Thomas was on the field, though he skipped some drills as per head trainer Jim Whelan's instructions. Thomas said he's feeling good and taking things day by day.
