The Patriots took the field for their 5th practice of training camp and their 3rd day in pads.
After having a day off, Julian Edelman dominated Tuesday’s practice.
Every corner, he faced had a hard time stopping him, including Darrelle Revis.
Edelman’s best catch came against Kyle Arrington in one-on-one drills when he made a diving one-handed grab for the touchdown. He caught the football between his elbow and body.
Edelman has been a machine through this camp and I expect nothing less than huge numbers from him this fall.
Brandon LaFell is turning heads in a good way. LaFell has been struggling with drops, but today he looked great. He made some spectacular catches. Brady threw up a deep pass to LaFell, who used his speed to cut in between two defenders and go up and catch the pass.
Brian Tymes is showing great chemistry with Jimmy Garoppolo and Ryan Mallett since he’s been signed. That will be a combination to watch during pre-season.
Darrelle Revis is continuing his impressive camp along with Logan Ryan, who picked off Tom Brady today.
Alfonzo Dennard practiced for the first time today. He was involved in walk-throughs but was limited for the remainder of the day.
Gronk was on the same schedule today, but did work with Tom Brady and Darrelle Revis off to the side for a few plays.
Jake Bequette made Nate Solder look bad on a one-on-one drill today when Bequette made an impressive cut inside to beat the left tackle.
WR Aaron Dobson (foot), WR Matthew Slater, WR Jeremy Gallon, DT Dominique Easley (knee), LB Deontae Skinner, T Chris Martin, DB Jemea Thomas, G Dan Connolly, TE Michael Hoomanawanui, and RB Tyler Gaffney did not practice.
