The New England Patriots completed their first joint practice with Tampa Bay today. They will take on the Bucs in a preseason battle Friday.

Quick Recap: 

Rookies on defense and offense are impressing in camp. Duron Harmon continues to impress in camp, especially in coverage. Harmon looks like a good cover safety, and Logan Ryan has some good moments as well. Jamie Collins who earned a huge workload today because of Spikes’s absence due to unknown reasons, looked impressive. Collins is playing outstanding in coverage.

Kenbrell Thompkins had the play of the day. Thompkins made a one – handed TD grab around a Bucs CB. Josh Boyce continues to look good.

Kyle Arrington did not look good today going against Vincent Jackson on slants. Jackson victimized Arrington numerous times.

Brady looked sharp but not as sharp as last week. The offense did not look as crisp as it did against the Eagles. Tebow continues to run the read-option in practice, and Mallett continues with some good moments through practice.

Former Patriots WR Tiquan Underwood was present today for Tampa Bay. LeGarrette Blount a former Buc was with New England along with Aqib Talib.

Darrelle Revis spoke after practice today about Brady and the Patriots.

Revis was asked if he thought Tom Brady was the best QB in the game

“Oh yeah, yeah,” Revis said after the joint practice between the Pats and Bucs. “It’s between him and Peyton Manning, but it’s a good race between both of them. They’re both great. I played against both of them. They’re awesome quarterbacks. They’re tough. They’re tough to play against and game plan against, as well.” 

Revis who could not fully practice because he is still recovering from a torn ACL, talked going from Jets to Bucs and the hated rivalry of the Jets-Patriots.

“The New York Jets-Patriots, that’s a crazy rivalry,” Revis said. “It really is. It’s almost like a hatred. Now I’m a Buccaneer. This is something new for me, being in training camp with another team, so I’m just taking it in stride. It was funny because Mr. Kraft came up to me, and said some encouraging words and some good words. It just shows how much respect you have when you’re not on (the Jets’) side of the ball.” 

Tomorrow Patriots will practice with Tampa Bay at 2 P.M.
