(Every Wednesday, we'll lead off the day with a look at some notable former Patriots and their production. This is who we will be following at the start of the season.)
LB Brandon Spikes (Bills) -- After signing a one-year deal in Buffalo as a free-agent in the offseason, he was named a team captain for 2014. He is the projected starter at middle linebacker and is wearing No. 51.
CB Aqib Talib (Broncos) -- Signed a lucrative free-agent deal in Denver, as the Broncos took things to a financial level in which the Patriots weren't comfortable going.
LB Dane Fletcher (Buccaneers) -- Much like he was in New England, Fletcher serves a backup role at middle linebacker and will make his main mark on special teams.
DL Tommy Kelly (Cardinals) -- Veteran hooked on quickly after he was released by the Patriots and could play significant snaps in Arizona.
TE Daniel Fells (Giants) -- Veteran has made the Giants' initial roster after not playing in 2013 after being released by the Patriots.
