Wes Welker puts food on the table by making receptions. He's done it for a while and is one of the best in the NFL at it. But on Sunday, he didn't get many opportunities.
Welker was targeted just five times against the Titans. Is there any reason to make a big deal out of this? Probably not . . . but it's worth noting anyways.
Perhaps it was just a case of the other players being more open. Or . . . the Patriots are sticking it to Welker for not agreeing to that franchise tag sooner! Kidding.
Tom E. Curran and Ron Borges talk about Welker's day.
Chris Gasper explains why he does not think Rex Ryan has the temperament to turn the Buffalo Bills around.
The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.
While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.
According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”
Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb.
When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."
