Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat. Today's chat kicked off earlier than normal, at 10 a.m., and it can be recapped here. Some of the topics included:
1. Terrell Owens working out on the same field as Tom Brady; no reason to read anything into it.
2. Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders and restricted free agency.
3. Free-agent receiver Julian Edelman visiting the Giants.
4. Salary cap, total payroll, and the perception that the Patriots are cheap.
5. Brian Daboll and his role on the coaching staff.
6. Daniel Fells, Jake Ballard and the loaded tight end position.
