Quarterback Tom Brady headlined the list of captains who were also on hand for the opening session, and it’s believed every player on the team was in attendance, according to a source.

The secret to being a shutdown corner? Neck exercises and clipboards.

Lots of good names on this mock from Doug Kyed. I need to take a closer look at Bishop Sankey, his name has popped up a lot around the Pats’ mocks.

Now here’s something to get excited about! The boys are back at Gillette and the foundation for the 2014 is beginning to be set into place.

Great footage of Revis, Brady and even a nice shot Mayo who looks to be fully recovered, at least from the reverse angle giving a hand shake.

Here’s a great resource keeping track of all the Pats’ contacts this offseason. The number of wide receivers and quarterbacks might be a little surprising, but just because they’re on this list doesn’t mean the Pats are definitely interested in drafting them.

Usually it means they need some clarification on the prospect, and even if you don’t draft them you might have to play against them, so every little bit of info helps.

They’re just teasing me with this…
