1. How much longer do you envision Tom Brady playing at such a high level?
2. Observations from the Patriots' workout today at Boston College.
3. Running back Kevin Faulk, who was present at today's workout, and his future with the team.
4. Considering some options for the Patriots along the offensive line.
5. The Patriots and free agency -- projecting the team's approach.
