Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at 12 p.m. ET, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Will we see a defense-oriented, run-the-ball style from the Patriots?
2. Free-agent John Abraham and other moves the team could make with open roster spots.
3. Leon Washington, LeGarrette Blount and their roles in the running game.
4. Revisiting the departure of Danny Woodhead.
5. Veteran safety Adrian Wilson -- a full-time player or more of a niche player?
