Bill Belichick threw the boys a bone on Thursday, cancelling the final practice of the team’s three-day minicamp and shooing them out on summer vacation.

Belichick, who pulled the same maneuver in 2012, held morning meetings before springing the players and coaches for a month. Training camp will start at the end of July.

The Patriots had nearly perfect attendance at their offseason workouts and at organized team activities this spring so stepping off the pedal just a few feet short of the finish line after the players sacrificed pretty well goes a long way toward building morale.

Or could.
