The story of Day 1 from Patriots training camp was the overflowing crowd, which forced the club to open the Gillette Stadium ramps overlooking the practice fields. The Patriots announced the attendance as 15,349. "Nothing surprises you with our fans," wide receiver Julian Edelman said. "It's certainly more than we had at my college games, so that's pretty cool. We always feel and love the support that we get here in this community."
