FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The evening session was much more exciting than the morning walkthrough, especially if you enjoy passing drills.
But before we get into a few observations, safety Rodney Harrison came off the PUP list and practiced for the first time in camp. The Patriots were in full pads. He saw a lot of reps but looked a little winded.
Cassel and Matt Gutierrez were the passers in a fun one-on-one drill, pitting the LBs against the RBs and TEs. They would line up about three yards apart. The receiver would run at the LB, make a move and try to get open. The offense dominated the LBs and completed every pass for more than half the drill.
The best throw and catch of the day was Cassel to Sam Aiken in the back of the end zone. CB Lewis Sanders had blanket coverage, but Cassel threaded the ball and Aiken made an acrobatic catch for a touchdown.
QB Tom Brady threw two interceptions (one was tipped). I smell a controversy.
With one second left on the clock and the ball on the 10-yard line in the two-minute drill, Brady found WR Randy Moss in the back of the end zone. Moss seemed to have the ball firmly, but rookie CB Terrence Wheatley made a fantastic play and knocked it out of Moss' hands for an incompletion.
