    I hope the Patriots never change their uniforms again

    I couldn't help myself. I felt like I just had to write a counter-argument to Wednesday's article written by Rich Hill, the excellent managing editor here at Pats Pulpit, about the Patriots' uniforms. Rich wrote that he wants the Patriots to switch to full-time usage of the color rush uniforms they've worn the last couple of years. His main argument was that he would like to see more solid colors – the pants being the same color as the jersey. During a Thursday Night Football home game in 2016, the Patriots wore an alternate navy blue jersey (it almost had a Captain America look to it) with navy blue pants. Then the following year, they wore color rush uniforms on the road, and it was just simply

    NFL notebook: Trump criticizes NFL's anthem policy in tweet

    A day after the NFL's national anthem protest controversy resurfaced in the news, Trump tweeted on the subject, criticizing the league's revised policy, calling out commissioner Roger Goodell and suggesting potential punishments for those who kneel. "The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can't believe it!" Trump tweeted. The NFL and its owners passed a new policy -- a policy that Trump praised as "doing the right thing" -- in May that calls for fines against teams whose players show any mode of disrespect during the anthem, while asking players who will not stand to remain in the locker room.

    New England Patriots offensive lineman announces his retirement

    New England Patriots sophomore offensive lineman Andrew Jelks announced his retirement on Friday. Jelks has battled multiple ACL injuries that sidelined him for the final two seasons of his college career and his entire rookie season. He had shown enough ability in his first two seasons at Vanderbilt for the Patriots to give him a chance. Best of luck to Jelks as he transitions away from football. The Patriots now have an open roster spot and they are likely to be interested in filling it with another offensive lineman.

    Fantasy football: The top 30 tight ends for 2018

    Fantasy draft strategy articles often discuss tier-ing and, as it happens, this year's tight ends are about as easy as possible to separate into tiers. There's a distinct “big three” at the top, which really could be divided into two tiers, the first with Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce and another in which Zach Ertz is the sole member. After that trio, there's a middle class of TEs who offer a fair amount of appeal, forming a tier that starts with Greg Olsen and concludes with Trey Burton. In these rankings, all of that accounts for just 10 players, so in 12-team leagues, there will be at least two squads hunting for bargains. That gets us to the next tier, featuring players about whom owners

    The most important move every NFL team made this offseason

    ESPN.com It has been a long (and busy) offseason. What is the most important move your team made? NFL Nation brings you up to speed before training camp kicks off. AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC West AFC EAST This was really a series of moves that included trading wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Rams last August for a 2018 second-round pick, then trading left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals this offseason to move into the first round. In his first draft at the helm, general manager Brandon Beane maneuvered Buffalo from No. 21 overall to No. 7, where he made Allen the highest-selected quarterback in franchise history. Beane couldn't move

    Fear and floating in the Caribbean

    Thursday, 3 p.m.: Gearing up It's a fine April afternoon in the Bahamas, and I'm at the checkout counter inside Sunn Odyssey Divers, receiving equipment for a nerve-jangling assignment: help an NFL star cross "shark encounter" off his bucket list, with guidance from Discovery's Shark Week team. It's a tall order for me, a guy who wakes up afraid most mornings, and I'm second-guessing my life choices as Rob Gronkowski barges through the glass doors. "What's up, Sam!" exclaims the ever-exuberant Gronk, who has been whisked straight here from 
the airport. The Patriots tight end looks carefree, per usual, like a guy who lives the life we would 
all want to live if we were rich, 29 and had a six-month
