Weekly Patriots chat recap

Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat. This week's chat kicked off a bit earlier than normal, at 10 a.m. ET.

The chat can be recapped here and includes some of the following topics:

1. Which position battle are you most interested in watching in training camp?

2. Logan Mankins and his attendance at Joe Andruzzi's charity golf tournament.

3. Players appearing on NFL Network during the lockout.

4. Brandon Meriweather and his role at safety in 2011.

5. Wes Welker and his future with the team.
