The New England Patriots returned to the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, holding their second straight session of the week. There was one major difference between Monday’s and Tuesday’s, though: the Patriots put on full pads in between, giving session No. 6 a distinct “real football” flair that the previous five missed.
Needless to say there are plenty of players worth taking a closer look at, as always neatly categorized into winners and losers.
Winner: QB Cam Newton
On Saturday, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick reaffirmed Cam Newton’s status as the team’s starting quarterback.
