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.

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.
