The New England Patriots selected three defensive players from Rutgers in the 2013 NFL Draft and chief among those selections is cornerback Logan Ryan, who was taken with the 83rd overall pick (third round). The Patriots hope Ryan can add much needed depth to its secondary and was one of just two defensive backs taken by the team in the draft. “Logan [Ryan] had a very productive year outside,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said. … “He’s a good football player in a good program. He’s been very productive. He’s one of the most productive corners in the draft. Smart; been productive. He’s been in a very good system.

While retaining some or all of these free agents will be important for the Patriots, so will be going outside of the organization to upgrade at several …

The San Francisco 49ers blew a 28-point lead but held on to beat the New England Patriots, 41-34 at Gillette Stadium Sunday night.
As much as the first half was one to forget for the New England Patriots Sunday Night, the second half was nearly one to remember in a wild and sloppy, 41-34 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously we just didn’t do anything well enough to win," said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. "It starts with me – didn’t do a good job of coaching, didn’t coach well, we didn’t play well, we weren’t good on offense, weren’t good on defense, weren’t good enough on special teams. They just did a better job than we did. We just have to perform better than that. We didn’t so that’s the result. We just didn’t do a good job, it’s as simple as that." San Francisco (10-3-1) built a 31-3 lead in the third quarter; sending Patriots fans home in droves …

With Nike now designing the National Football League uniforms, the New England Patriots will be looking a little different next year.
Wednesday, April 4, 2012
When the National Football League displayed their new uniforms at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Tuesday, the biggest difference in the New England Patriots' uniform is in the shirt collar. The Patriots' jersey uses a Flyware collar design, which allows for a more comfortable fit, something Nike was trying to accomplish after taking over Reebok as the uniform provider. New England Patriot wide-receiver Wes Welker was on hand for the showing of the new uniforms. Read more about the the new uniforms in the Boston Herald at http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/football/patriots and check out a video if the new uniforms at http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-videos/09000d5d8280feb3/The-new-look-of-the-NFL?module=HP11_hot_topics
Gillette Stadium could be getting ads for casinos on signs at their stadiums if the NFL gives its approval.
If even the casino doesn't get built in Foxborough, you could see ads for them at Gillette Stadium in the near future. According to an articles in the Sports Business Journal and the Boston Herald, the National Football League is considering allowing teams to have ads for the casinos in their stadiums. “The (New England) Patriots could take in $4 million, $5 million — even $6 million-plus per year (under the proposed rules),” expert Marc Ganis was quoted as saying in the Boston Herald. Casinos with sports betting wouldn't be allowed to have their ads in the stadium. TV ads would still be banned. The NFL says it is still considering the plan. “This is something that was raised at (last week’s) league meetings as a potential new revenue …

The Patriots hosted the New York Giants and lost the game, their chance for Super Bowl revenge and perhaps lost their way. Is this who they are?
The Patriots game on Sunday against the New York Giants can easily be described as a "team loss." Most teams will say you lose and win as a team, but none more so than the Patriots game against the New York Giants. It was a game that gave the Patriots a chance to rebound from a tough loss to the Steelers last week, and in a sense, gain some revenge on the Giants for ruining the Patriots hopes of a perfect season back in February 2008. The game didn't start out well for either team offensively. In fact, th Patriots and Giants both played poorly in the first half. The game was scoreless at halftime; tthe first time this has occurred so far in the 2011 NFL season. The second half was not much better for the Patriots and included fumbles…

The New York Giants travel to Gillette as the Patriots host the team that derailed their hopes of a perfect season in Super Bowl XLII.
Media day at Gillette had a different feel to. It could have been for a number of reasons including the loss to the Steelers on Sunday, the return of the New York Giants or the reported incident allegedly involving Julian Edelman. One way or another, the Patriots put aside the loss to Pittsburgh and did their best to deflect the media avalanche that has resulted since the alleged incident involving Edelman. Bill Belichick took the podium to address the media. "On to the Giants, a real good Football team. Obviously defensively, very strong pass rush, good pass defense. Offensively, good quarterback, good receivers, good offensive line, good backs. They make plays in the kicking game, good returners, good coverage players, and you know Tom…
