According to Pro Football Talk, Week 1 and Week 4 of the preseason will be cancelled in a Thursday announcement.
The Patriots have reached a one-year, incentive-laden deal with Cam Newton to replace Tom Brady. No more Jarrett Stidham as the projected starting quarterback.

Well, here's a first. Michael Turk, a punter for the Arizona State Sun Devils, skipped his junior and senior seasons to enter the NFL draft. He hired agents. He was committed to pro football.
