Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. This week's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and includes some of the following topics:
1. What areas on the team are you most interested in following in training camp?
2. Breaking down the receiver position.
3. Shane Vereen, Kevin Faulk and the Patriots' running backs.
4. Defensive lineman Ron Brace and his future with the team.
5. A revamped defense and Albert Haynesworth/Vince Wilfork in the middle.
