Patriots | Gardner ready to roll

Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots LB Barry Gardner likes what he sees of the Patriots at practice. He said he feels a sense of urgency with the team. "No wasted time. No wasted energy. It is what it is. Go out and get it done," Gardner said of the team's approach. His primary contributions have come on special teams in recent years, although he's been spending extra time in inside linebackers meetings, the position in which he'll line up if called upon on defense. Gardner prides himself on intelligence, versatility and an always-ready-to-play approach. Gardner has his hands full with another challenge: this is his first experience working in a 3-4 defense. He said the Jets introduced a little bit of the 3-4 last season, although their primary alignment was the 4-3, and Gardner backed up each spot.
