FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- ESPN didn't give me a tricked-out bus to cruise me across the countryside like they did for Chris Mortensen, but I'm making my rounds to the AFC East training camps nonetheless.

After splitting a week between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets in upstate New York, I've made it to Gillette Stadium to spend a few days with the New England Patriots.

The weather is fantastic. Sunshine is beaming, and temperatures are expected to reach the mid-80s, a lot nicer than the soggy conditions that have kept the Bills and Jets on their artificial surfaces more often than they'd like.

After a few days here, I'll head back to my home state for the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, featuring Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson and one of his greatest players, Bruce Smith. I'll also cover the Hall of Fame Game between the Bills and Tennessee Titans.

Then it's off to Davie, Fla., to round out my division tour at Miami Dolphins camp.

But that won't be the end of my travels. Now that I've relocated to Western New York, additional visits to Bills and Jets camps will be painless -- even without a professional driver to cart me around.

The Patriots have filed onto the upper fields outside the stadium. I should make my way out there, too.
