Nate Solder on criticism of Patriots culture: ‘The fun is playing well’ More Nate Solder played seven seasons with the Patriots, made it to four Super Bowls and won two of them. Normally it would go without saying that the left tackle had fun playing in New England — but it’s 2018 now, and in these trying times, we can assume nothing. Since Cassius Marsh started speaking out about his short stint with the Patriots, bemoaning the way they used him and accusing them of making football so horrible that he considered quitting, other players have joined the chorus.

We performed well last year as a defense – our record didn’t show it – but now it’s all about the little things – the little things to get us there, the little things that get you beat, too, Trevathan said. So we want to go ahead and eliminate those minor mistakes.

It’s little things that can grow over time, and we want to nip them in the bud right now. That’s why I’m glad we’re out here, I’m out here right now playing with this defense right now and getting a sense of where we can be better. And that’s what we want heading into camp. It feels great heading into camp, and stopping the little things right now will help us tremendously. 

Jackson’s thinking goes like this:

The Temple product flashed at times as an occasional starter as a rookie before making a run at 1,000 yards (he finished with 941) while scoring seven touchdowns in his second NFL season. 

The 25-year-old has been arrested in back-to-back offseasons and could be facing a suspension as a result, but the Jets have little reason to cut bait on a high-potential receiver slated to cost them just $633,334 in the final year of his entry-level deal. 

Now Cleveland could be down to one final game with James. The three-time champion can opt out of his $35.6 million contract and test free agency this summer, and it may be time for the 33-year-old to find a team capable of beating the Warriors.
