  • QB Cam Newton said that there’s “no doubt in [his] mind” that he’ll play against the Buccaneers in Week 1. (Joe Person)


  • QB Tom Brady “was very upset” with the Patriots decision to trade G Logan Mankins. (Jason Cole)

  • The Patriots offensive line has been adjusting to a new coach, Dave DeGuglielmo, this year and it appears as though it’s been more challenging for some than expected. (Mike Reiss)
