  • Day one of joint practices with the Carolina Panthers is in the books. Intensity was ramped up to the maximum and the Patriots look pretty good today. Offensively, you’re headed in the right direction.

    I thought Mac Jones did a good job connecting with Devante Parker today on a couple 50/50 balls. Mac also hit Jakobi Meyers on a few plays. Meyers popped a little bit in this practice.

  • Jonnu Smith Steps Up

    I thought Jonnu Smith stepped up a little bit today. Hunter Henry left early with an injury, which create a lot of opportunities for Smith and he took advantage in the team periods.

  • Fights Headlined Practice

    Patriots Joint Practices with the Carolina Panthers

    The big talk of practice were the two big scrums between the Patriots and Panthers players. the first starter with Kristian Wilkerson catching the ball in front of the sideline. I think he got pushed by a Panthers defensive coach and he said something to him. It sparked the Panthers to start a melee where the other field emptied out pretty much like a baseball fight, where they come out of the dugout and the bullpen. It took a lot to get it separated. Both Bill Belichick and Carolina Head Coach Matt Rhule were ticked off. Kendrick Bourne threw a punch. He was ejected along with Wilkerson.
