Pre-draft

Here’s a look at coach Bill Belichick’s at-home setup:

Could Joe Thuney be traded? According to the Miami Herald‘s Armando Salguero, the Miami Dolphins have discussed the possibility of trading for 27-year-old guard Joe Thuney. Earlier this offseason, the Patriots placed their franchise tag on Thuney, who then signed the fully guaranteed $14.8 million, one-year contract. Thuney, entering his fifth season in New England, has not missed a game since arriving as a third-round pick in 2016.
