  • The Patriots announced Saturday morning they have signed rookie OL Lav Bauta two days after cutting him. The move was possible because veteran OL Gene Mruczkowski has retired.

  • The biggest positional question mark of Patriots camp is at left cornerback, and injury-prone Fernando Bryant heads into camp the favorite to win the job vacated by Asante Samuel.

  • TE Ben Watson claims his surgically repaired right ankle is doing fine.

  • New TE Marcus Pollard sounds like he'll do whatever it takes to get involved in the offense: "If [Tom Brady] tells me to hide eggs, I'm hiding eggs even if it's not Easter." What about candy corn when it's not Halloween?
