Thu, 01 Jun 2006 20:08:37 -0700

John Tomase, of the Boston Herald, reports no unit of the New England Patriots was hit harder by free agency than the special teams unit.

Special teams captain LB Larry Izzo hopes the new members of the unit can fill in for the losses and add to what the unit could not accomplish last year, "We'd like to be better than we were last year and there's definitely room for improvement." Izzo went on to say the easiest way to make a roster is through special teams, and new members will find that out quick because of the emphasis the Patriots place on the unit.

Patriots | Beisel might be utilized differently in 2006

Sat, 27 May 2006 17:33:32 -0700

Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots LB Monty Beisel said he has spoken with defensive coordinator Dean Pees and was given the indication he will be utilized differently during the 2006 season, possibly to take better advantage of his speed. Beisel has also spent time with new linebackers coach Matt Patricia. Beisel said, "``I think it's going to be really good [with Matt]. That's one thing they talk about around here, when people come and people go, the transition is always smooth. I think it's been seamless so far." Beisel projects to compete with LBs Ryan Claridge, Eric Alexander, Barry Gardner, Larry Izzo and Don Davis for playing time at inside linebacker. If LB Mike Vrabel moves back to outside linebacker, Beisel is a top candidate to start at inside linebacker.
