The New England Patriots face a holdout from mandatory mini-camp of top cornerback and one of the league’s best, Stephon Gilmore. Should the team not be able to resolve its differences with the star corner (or maybe even if they can), trading Gilmore to the Los Angeles Rams might just be positive for both teams.
Cam Newton left minicamp 2021 on a high note Wednesday.

Newton had a shaky...

Even in the various iterations of Superman canon, there is an endpoint. Superman either gives his powers away or he loses them. He either dies in battle or abandons Earth altogether. One way or another, the various strands of the mythology find a way to intersect, reaching an inevitably human decline that we can all understand: There is a rise. And there is a fall.
Patriots minicamp opened up this week and there was one notable absence. Star cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who is just a year removed from being named the NFL’s best defensive player, did not make the trip for the mandatory practices and it doesn’t sound like the team expects him to show up.

The Patriots' two decades of excellence has often been represented by just one face: Bill Belichick. Of course, there are many more working behind Belichick to put the pieces together and make sure New England's operation is running as smoothly as possible.

Like Caserio, many spend a large portion of their career within the Patriots organization, and some never leave Belichick's side.
