By MyFM’s John Wilbur- The New England Patriots are just days away from reporting for training camp and kicking off the 2018 season. But this New England Patriots team looks much different than it did when we last saw the team leaving the field in Minnesota after a hard fought loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. But the one constant despite all of the controversy this off season about whether or not he was getting along with the head coach, or if he was going to play at all is the 5 time super Bowl Champion and 3 time league MVP Tom Brady at Quarterback. Brady is entering his 18th season in New England and looks as poised as ever to lead this team, that has seen some changes since last year. Some of those changes include losing Danny Amendola, Dion Lewis and Malcom Butler to free agency. Wide receiver Brandon Cooks was traded and perhaps most importantly the Pats need to replace Bradys blind side protector offensive tackle Nate Solder who left for more money with the New York Giants. After another controversial offseason the Patriots big tight end Rob Gronkowski is back and healthy. Gronk looks ready to compete after toying with New England fans over the winter about weather or not he would return to football. Malcom Mitchell is still a big question mark after dealing with injuries throughout the season last year. And Tom Brady’s Favorite target of the last few season’s (minus last year due to injury) Julian Edelman will be sitting out the first four weeks after being suspended by the league for testing positive for a banned substance. On defense Donte Hightower is expected to be healthy to start camp after missing most of last season with injuries. The addition of Jason McCourty should help solidify the back field. But with Bill Belichick entering his 44th season in the NFL and his 18th season with New England it’s sure to be a thrilled filled season as it always is.
