Tom Brady, Jerod Mayo among Patriots spotted at OTAs


Well, well, well, look what I found.

The media couldn’t attend today’s organized team activities at Gillette Stadium, but Patriots Today released a quick report from practice. I watched it a few dozen times, froze it, rewound it and watched it again. Hey, that’s what I’m here for.

The voluntary practice was conducted outside in the rain, and the players wore sweats, T-shirts and helmets. It was difficult to positively identify most of the players, but I was able find a handful of them.

I spotted quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver Wes Welker, wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, wide receiver Julian Edelman (he was running through positional drills with the receivers, which is noteworthy), wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, quarterback Brian Hoyer, quarterback Ryan Mallett, running back Eric Kettani, defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, linebacker Jerod Mayo, cornerback Devin McCourty, defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene, linebacker Dane Fletcher, defensive lineman Ron Brace and defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick.

There were plenty more in attendance, but I didn’t have a chance to catch all of the numbers on their helmets and sweats. So keep in mind, just because the players weren’t listed doesn’t mean they weren’t there.

The media can attend Thursday’s full session, so I’ll have a comprehensive report then.
