Postcard From Camp, Day 10: Brady puts on a show


FOXBORO -- The Patriots welcomed the Jags to Gillette Stadium on Monday for the first of two joint practices before their preseason opener on Thursday. It was a sloppy session at times, with drops and penalties on both sides peppered throughout. There were, however, some competitive matchups to watch and Tom Brady put on a show late in the session.


* Harvey Langi, Trey Flowers, Malcom Brown, Vincent Valentime, Malcolm Butler, Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe, Patrick Chung, Devin McCourty, David Harris, Shea McClellin were the first group out on defense to start. Langi was in a three-point stance as a five-technique.

* Cam Fleming was in at left tackle for Nate Solder and had difficulty with Yannick Ngakoue for much of the afternoon.

* Tom Brady submitted the best plays of the day, and they came on back-to-back snaps. First he completed a bomb to Brandin Cooks deep down the middle of the field when Cooks got behind both AJ Bouye and Tashaun Gipson. Brady then hit Chris Hogan with a perfectly-placed pass down the sideline with Tyler Patmon in close coverage.

* Kickoff team 1: 32, 38, 58, 31, 43, 37, 55, 92, 36, 23

* Kickoff team 2: 24, 41, 47 , 26, 53, 48, 44, 52, 35, 25

* 42, 47o, 48o, 13 all got some time as the third kickoff team.

* Dion Lewis, Cyrus Jones and Will Likely all got work in as kick returners. Rex Burkhead and James White served in the Matthew Slater role.

* Laps for Allen and Fleming early. Langi had a lap in 11-on-11 as did Devin Lucien.
