Deaderick not present at start of Friday practice

FOXBORO -- Brandon Deaderick was added to the Patriots practice absent list Friday. The DL was added to the injury report Thursday as limited with an ankle ailment.
TE Aaron Hernandez and DL Justin Francis, also with ankle injuries, were not at practice for the second day in a row.
It's unclear how long Deaderick will be sidelined, but the Patriots might be shallow on the D-line for Sunday's game in Baltimore.
Players wore shorts and shells working on the upper field behind Gillette Stadium.

Tom Brady posts skiing video with dated South Park reference

Tom Brady posts skiing video with dated South Park reference

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
