Sights And Sounds: First Day Of Patriots Training Camp
The New England Patriots returned to the field Thursday morning for their first training camp practice of the year.
A few quick notes from day one of camp
Trent Brown lined up at the top left tackle spot. Nate Solder signed with the Giants in free agency, leaving a void at the position.
How will wide receiver Julian Edelman's four-game PED suspension affect other players at the position? The Patriots appeared to be looking at Phillip Dorsett as an inside receiver, as the fourth-year pro spent considerable time working with Edelman and quarterback Tom Brady.
Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell was absent from practice. The 2016 fourth-round draft pick missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury. Mitchell has been the subject of recent trade rumors, with reports suggesting that the Patriots may be willing to move on from him due to his injury history.
