Couple notable nuggets:
- Tom Brady spent a majority of his first-team reps with Danny Amendola as his slot receiver, as expected, but continued the day with a rotating cast as his other options, including free agent signees Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins, as well as rookies Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce.
- Rookie Aaron Dobson snatched a Brady pass out of the air between two defenders, making his mark on the field. He followed up with another dazzling sliding catch later on.
- The highlight of the practice was second-year linebacker Dont’a Hightower picking off backup quarterback Ryan Mallett. Mallett appeared to be rusty through the day’s drills.
And so it begins…
