Despite being sidelined by an injury the last few weeks, Jerrod Mayo is keeping his head in the game as he goes through some defensive plays -- specifically blitzes -- with Tom E. Curran.
PHOENIX -- Roger Goodell said during a press conference at the league meetings on Tuesday evening that he planned to attend the NFL's "kickoff game" next season, which is scheduled to be hosted by the Patriots at Gillette Stadium in September.
Goodell has not visited Gillette Stadium since the AFC title game in January of 2015 -- the game during which Deflategate was sparked. Last season he opted to visit Atlanta for the Divisional and Championship rounds of the playoffs in back-to-back weeks.
On Monday, Robert Kraft was asked if he anticipated Goodell visiting New England for his team's 2017 season-opener.
"I think I'll let you all ask him that," Kraft said. "Look, he's the commissioner of the league. As we all know, he has the right to go wherever he wishes to go. If he wants to come, he's welcome to come. We're happy we'll be celebrating our fifth banner. He can decide if he wants to be there."
It appears as though he's decided to be there.
