Darrelle Revis was the star acquisition of the Patriots‘ offseason, and now he is the star of their training camp, writes Ben Violin of the Boston Globe. Revis intercepted two Tom Brady passes, and broke up a third. Violin was also impressed by fellow cornerback Logan Ryan and rookie tailback James White.
Here are some more links from around the AFC East:
- Revis may have been the most impressive player in Patriots‘ camp, but the pass catchers let their offense down, writes Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. Reiss counted eight drops from receivers and backs, including two from Kenbrell Thompkins.
- Knowshon Moreno is the best pass protector the Dolphins have at running back, but may also get the starting job over Lamar Miller. If Moreno wins the starting job, that would make him an every down back, and the team may be smarter to let Miller carry the ball on early down to save Moreno, writes Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
- Dolphins‘ rookie receiver Jarvis Landry has impressed with his work ethic, writes Steven Wine of USA Today. He has been the last receiver on the practice field, and has been a force during drills.
- With Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson, and Landry pencilled in as the top four receivers on the Dolphins, that leaves one spot open on the roster for the position, writes Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Fighting for that spot are Rishard Matthews, Armon Binns, Damian Williams, and Marcus Thigpen. The team may be able to keep six receivers is one of them is Thigpen, due to his value on special teams.
- Jets‘ first-round pick Calvin Pryor suffered a head injury and possible concussion during special teams practice, reports Seth Walder of the Daily News. Pryor is expected to be a starting safety for the team.
