FOXBOROUGH – Second-year linebacker Gary Guyton is one of the more humble players in the Patriots’ locker room. This past offseason, for example, he returned to campus at Georgia Tech and worked as an office assistant when he wasn't in the Patriots' offseason program. One of his primary duties was shredding paper.
Guyton doesn’t want to forget where he came from, and this was reflected in a small tattoo on the inner part of his left wrist. The tattoo is the numbers 912.
“That’s Hinesville, Georgia, where I was born and raised,” Guyton said, referring to Hinesville’s area code. “I don’t get to go home a lot, but this way home is always with me.”
Guyton and the Patriots continue to prepare for Friday’s preseason game at Washington. They’ll be on the practice field this morning (10:35). Bill Belichick is scheduled to hold a press conference at 9:30.
More to come throughout the day.
