Patriots Rumors: Why Veteran Players Are ‘Extremely Encouraged’

Questions swirl around the New England Patriots ahead of organized team activities, but the makeup of the team’s roster reportedly has its experienced players encouraged.

“Extremely encouraged,” in fact, according to a report Friday from The Athletic’s Jeff Howe.

“New England veterans have been extremely encouraged with the team chemistry this offseason,” Howe wrote. “The free-agent additions have meshed well in the locker room, and there’s been a different vibe over the past month.”

The Patriots loaded up in free agency last offseason, handing out more than $170 million guaranteed to add players like Matthew Judon, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, Davon Godchaux and Jalen Mills.
