The expectation is that Brady will attend mandatory mini-camp in June.
Also worth noting: Since February, the Patriots have added several skill players - wide receivers Jordan Matthews, Cordarrelle Patterson and Braxton Berrios; running backs Sony Michel and Jeremy Hill; tight end Troy Niklas - who have yet to catch a pass or take a handoff from Brady. Still, them not joining the rest of the team for OTAs would be a significant story and a departure from the way both have operated in previous offseasons.
Belichick also reportedly had issues with Guerrero, who was banned from the team sideline and plane during the season. I know you're sick of the drama, but it's unusual that Tom Brady won't be at OTAs.
This offseason was the first time that Brady didn't report to Gillette Stadium at the start of April since 2010. Back then, Brady lived in Los Angeles.
Phillip Dorsett - The speedy 2015 first-round pick has had a solid offseason after joining the team in a September 2017 trade, which is critical for him because last season, like Britt, he had to jump into the mix without the foundation of an offseason to learn the system. This part of the offseason is the only part where receivers can go up against cornerbacks in live passing drills.
It's always been an important step for newcomers to try to learn the ropes. He has skipped all of the team's offseason program so far this season.
After a tough loss in Super Bowl LII, Gronkowski debated retiring until he announced he made a decision to play on April 25. During a talk with Jim Gray, at the Milken Institute Global Conference in California, he talked about wanting to spend more time with his wife and kids before the start of the 2018 National Football League season. "It's a lot of thought, a lot of energy and emotion put into it, but I need to invest in them, too".
Jordan Matthews - The 2014 second-round pick who has 250 career regular-season receptions chose to sign a modest one-year deal with the Patriots this offseason, and one of the primary reasons was the chance to catch passes from Brady after a challenging season in Buffalo in which he battled some injuries (25 receptions).
Phase 3 lasts 4 weeks and consists of 10 practices.
Garoppolo went 5-0 in his first five starts with the 49ers and has since agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million deal to stay in San Francisco. The media will be at six of these practices.
Heavy favorite Justify wins Preakness
Justify was a heavy favorite leading into the Preakness-2-5 just before post time-but this was no easy victory. Two down, one to go for Justify. "You could tell he was in a fight the whole way", Baffert said.
Cavs try to ease LeBron James' load and stop Celtics
Outplayed during two losses in Boston, the Cavs used a three-day break in the series to regroup and re-grip this series. They're just 1-4 outside Boston and their shooting percentages have dipped on trips to Milwaukee and Philadelphia.
