Devin McCourty, Chris Long Explain Decision To Skip Patriots' White House Visit

New England Patriots waive 2015 fourth round pick Tre' Jackson

If you suspected the Patriots' recent backfield machinations cast doubt on the future of Super Bowl LI hero James White, think again.

"Right now, New Orleans owns the 11th overall pick and the Patriots' first-rounder (32nd overall) after the Brandin Cooks trade", wrote Dominik.

Following a one-year hiatus from the Super Bowl, the Patriots made their way back to the grand stage of sports to face the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII.

With LeGarrette Blount's status up in the air, the Pats still look like they'll have an effective rotation at hand with White, Dion Lewis, and Rex Burkhead.

"Our focus and goal is to put together the best team possible", Caserio said yesterday during his annual pre-draft news conference.

We already know that the Falcons are on New England's home schedule this year via the previous list of opponents that was released, but the highly-anticipated rematch won't kick off the new year.

System officials have said they'd probably offset the shortfall with a tuition increase. Kelly said the Senate passed the bills the majority promised. "I'm used to it".

Butler had until Friday to negotiate and sign an offer sheet with another team.

The Patriots originally selected White in the fourth round of the 2014 draft out of Wisconsin with the intention of making him the team's next passing back in the mold of Kevin Faulk, Danny Woodhead and Shane Vereen.

"You're looking at a full composition of a player", Caserio said.

Tennessee defensive back Cameron Sutton certainly fits that criteria, another player the Patriots have met with. They elaborated on their decision to skip the proceedings in a video titled, "StandingPats (Be Patriots)".

While fans would love the last, with Butler playing one of the cornerback spots for one more season. A man says, "other things were winning, like lying, groping women and being mean and getting away with it was winning". If Devin McCourty has his way, you bet.

"It's ongoing, if you will", Payton said at the time, pointing out that the Saints and Patriots couldn't have trade talks about Butler unless he was under contract.
