One year has made all the difference for the New England Patriots offense | New England Patriots

The New England Patriots finish their first week of training camp and the storylines around the team are in stark contrast to 2013. Last year, the Aaron Hernandez saga was in full swing with the tight end’s shocking arrest, release and non-stop news all summer. Add in a dose of Tebow-mania as the most talked about third-string quarterback dominated the non-Hernandez related drama. Finally, last year the focus was squarely on who was going to catch passes from quarterback Tom Brady. At the wide receiver position Wes Welker relocated to the Rocky Mountains and the Patriots had a plethora of rookies, unknowns, unproven players and Danny Amendola trying to fill his shoes in training camp. At tight end, Hernandez was in jail and Rob Gronkowski was out following offseason back surgery and multiple arm surgeries after twice breaking his forearm in 2012.
