  • Patriots' Chase Winovich: Healthy for OTAs

    Winovich participated in OTAs on Thursday, Andrew Callahan of MassLive.com reports.

    Winovich was selected by New England in the third round of the draft after undergoing thumb surgery in March. The Michigan product brings speed off the edge -- he clocked in a 4.59 40-yard dash at the combine -- as well as a solid motor to the Patriots' pass rush. Winovich racked up 59 tackles (33 solo) and five sacks in his senior year for the Wolverines.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Getting chance with New England

    Olszewski signed a contract with the Patriots on Thursday, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

    Olszewski went undrafted out of DII Bemidji State (Minn.) this offseason and is being signed as a receiver despite spending his collegiate career at corner, where he earned NSIC Defensive Player of the Year honors as a senior in 2018. He has long odds of making the final roster and would do well to flash enough potential to stick around on the practice squad.

  • Patriots' Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Sits out OTA session

    Seferian-Jenkins didn't participate in Thursday's voluntary OTAs, the Boston Herald reports.

    Seferian-Jenkins' absence was excused, but the tight end is expected to return for the Patriots' upcoming minicamp. Once he takes the field with his new team, Seferian-Jenkins will compete for tight end snaps with Benjamin Watson and Matt LaCosse, among others, as the Pats look to fill the void created by the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. While Seferian-Jenkins has yet to establish himself as a consistent fantasy option, the 2014 second-rounder does bring a nice combination of size and athleticism to the table. Though his role in the New England offense has yet to be determined, there's potential value to be had in whichever tight end eventually secures the largest share of targets vacated by Gronkowski.

  • Patriots' Isaiah Wynn: Not practicing during OTAs

    Wynn (Achilles) is not practicing Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Wynn appears to remain in recovery from the ruptured Achilles he suffered last August. While his timeline for activity isn't clear, there hasn't been anything that points to the 2018 first-rounder missing the start of training camp in July.

  • Patriots' Julian Edelman: Extension includes $12 million guaranteed

    Edelman's two-year contract extension with the Patriots includes an $8 million signing bonus, as well as $12 million in guaranteed money, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Edelman, who turned 33 on Wednesday, is thus under contract with the Patriots through 2021. Though he missed the first four games of the 2018 regular season due to a suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Edelman still managed to rack up 100 catches for 1,238 yards and six TDs in 15 games (playoffs included). He then capped off his strong campaign by being named the MVP of Super Bowl LIII. Now further removed from the torn ACL that cost him the 2017 season, Edelman remains QB Tom Brady's top passing target, an arrangement that ensures the slot maven fantasy relevance, especially in PPR formats.

  • Patriots' Tom Brady: Skips voluntary OTAs

    As expected, Brady wasn't in attendance during Thursday's OTAs, the Boston Herald reports.

    The Patriots' current workouts are voluntary, so this nugget isn't really concerning, especially given Brady's year-round dedication to nutrition and conditioning. In his absence, added QB reps are available for Brian Hoyer, Danny Etling and rookie Jarrett Stidham. Once Brady does take the field with his teammates, he won't have tight end Rob Gronkowski, who retired this offseason, to throw to. Newcomers looking to fill the void created by Gronkowski's departure are Benjamin Watson, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Matt LaCosse. Meanwhile, Brady's top target last year, Julian Edelman, just signed a contract extension and the team welcomes first-rounder N'Keal Harry to the pass-catching fold. Beyond that, the team's wideout depth chart is fluid, with the likes of Dontrelle Inman, Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Braxton Berrios and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles') -- when healthy -- looking to secure roles in the Patriots offense. Additionally, Josh Gordon remains suspended indefinitely. Brady turns 42 in August, but he shows no signs of slowing down after leading the Patriots to a win in Super Bowl LIII, on the heels of a 2018 regular season in which threw for 4,355 yards, while logging a 29:11 TD:INT ratio.
