We are less than a week away from the first New England Patriots preseason game and training camp is ramping up.
Andy Hart from Patriots Football Weekly joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss an altercation at training camp the other day, Tom Brady getting older, secondary problems and Rob Gronkowski.
On Wednesday night’s practice players were getting a little physical with each other. Second-year tackle Nate Solder seemed to shove linebacker Brandon Spikes when he was already on the ground. A group shoving match broke out after the play, and Solder had to run a lap.
“I think it’s a good sign for this team. I think one of the things, even though they were a Super Bowl team, one of the things they lacked was a little bit of an edginess.”
Today Tom Brady turns 35 today and the guys wonder when we’ll start to see a decline in his play?
“I don’t see it coming, I have no reason to believe it’s coming and you know you look at aging quarterbacks and the way they’re protected and maybe this is just going to be a trend.”
“I think Brady, he’s always said he could play till he’s 40, I think there’s a good chance he’s going to be at least a competitive, good quarterback till he’s 40.”
They also discussed issues in the secondary from last year and how those issues look to be present this year as well. Plus how Rob Gronkowski has looked after dropping a few balls early on in camp.
