New England Patriots Position Battles Defense Training Camp

As training camp approaches for the New England Patriots it is time to preview some of the position battles which should be among the highlights of July and August in Foxboro, MA.

Starting with the defense, there is a free for all at the cornerback position; At strong safety, incumbent Patrick Chung faces competition from 2015 second round draft pick Jordan Richards; At linebacker, the Patriots let midseason acquisition coverage linebacker Jonathan Casillas leave and need a replacement; and on the defensive line, New England brought in free agent defensive end/outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard from Cleveland to push veteran Rob Ninkovich.
