Brandon LaFell adjusting to life in New England
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell is trying to get adjusted to being in New England, reports the Boston Herald.

"Yeah, it's spinning, man," LaFell said. "It's been the craziest two or three months of my life."

The Patriots signed LaFell in March to a three-year, $9 million deal. He spent the previous four seasons with the Panthers. The hope is that he will add a dimension to the offense that is currently lacking with Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Aaron Dobson as the top options.

He's learning the new offense on the go, which has been an adjustment.

"We're throwing in a whole lot of plays every day," LaFell said. "At the same time you're a professional, man. You gotta be able to do it. There's going to be times during the season when we come in on Monday and throw in eight plays, come back in on Thursday and throw in another eight. It's pretty much getting us prepared for the season. The harder it is now, the easier it will be on Sunday."

Brandon LaFell going 'half-speed' as he learns offense
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell said he's going about "half-speed" as he learns a complex new offense. "I’m used to running a numbers system and now I’m back to code words, so, it’s a lot [to absorb]," the 6-2, 210-pounder told reporters after Thursday’s OTA practice.

"It’s been a grind so far, man, trying to learn this new playbook, my new teammates.

"The quicker I can learn this offense, the quicker I can go out there and be reliable and play fast, knowing what I’m doing. Now, I’m kind of playing at half-speed because I’m thinking so much. The quicker I can learn, the better I can help this team. I’ve learned a lot, but I’m nowhere near where I want to be yet."

Brandon LaFell chose Pats to play with Tom Brady
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Receiver Brandon LaFell said he left the Panthers for the Patriots for the "chance to play with a Hall of Fame quarterback. One day Cam [Newton] will be there, probably. I feel like it was a better chance to come up here and get more balls than there was with Carolina. 

"Nothing against those guys. Those guys are going to win. [But] it's proven up here.''

Brandon LaFell signs three-year deal with Patriots
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Patriots have agreed to a deal with free-agent wide receiver Brandon LaFell Saturday, according to ESPN.com. The deal is expected to be for three years, with NFL.com reporting a value of roughly $11 million over the life of the deal.

LaFell has settled in as a decent contributor for the Panthers in recent years, as he recorded his third straight season with between 600 and 680 receiving yards last year. He finished the 2013 season with 49 receptions for 627 yards and five touches.
