Belichick impressed with Kenbrell Thompkins
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots coach Bill Belichick likes what he sees from second-year receiver Kenbrell Thompkins.

"Hard working kid; one of our hardest workers," Belichick told the media Friday. "He really tries hard to do everything right. Very attentive, very coachable and he's very hard working."

Thompkins had a solid first day of training camp Thursday when he "caught nearly everything thrown his way." He has the chance to be a starter this year with Aaron Dobson (foot) out for the start of camp.

Kenbrell Thompkins off to another fast start
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins is off to a fast start for the second straight training camp, reports the Boston Globe. The second-year pro "caught nearly everything thrown his way" Thursday, the paper said, highlighted by "a pair of beautiful touchdown receptions where he had to climb the ladder to make an overhead catch in the back corner of the end zone on a fade route."

Thompkins burst onto the scene as an undrafted free agent last year, then failed to live up to the expectations he generated. He finished with 32 catches for 466 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games.

According to the paper, Thompkins is battling second-year wideout Josh Boyce, rookie Jeremy Gallon and several undrafted rookies for one or two roster spots.

Josh Boyce, Kenbrell Thompkins likely vying for one spot
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots second-year receivers Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins are on the roster bubble heading into training camp, with only one spot available, reports the team's website. Thompkins put up far better numbers as a rookie -- 32 catches, 466 yards, 4 TDs -- but he has inconsistent hands and Boyce is more explosive.

Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins could battle for starting spot
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) is healthy he is expected to start this season, but he could face competition in training camp from Kenbrell Thompkins, reports ESPN.

The report says that with Dobson out, Thompkins would start in his place.

"He's built some nice momentum in spring camps, and Dobson now has to try to do the same in training camp," the report says. "Among the many competitions on the roster, that should be a fun one to watch. Dobson was drafted in the second round last year for a reason; they are expecting big things from him."

Patriots have decisions to make at receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.
