Different dimension with Dobson
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- One play from the Patriots’ Monday practice stood out as a missing ingredient that could be returning to the team’s offense.
It came on a scramble play, with quarterback Tom Brady buying time in 11-on-11 drills before throwing to the back left corner of the end zone. Rookie receiver Aaron Dobson had briefly shaken free, but as the football was delivered high, it still was a tight window that would require Dobson to go up and get it.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Dobson did just that, leaping up and reaching his arms over his head to snare the approximate 35-yard pass from Brady.
