FOXBOROUGH -- There is joy here at Patriot Place, six trophies, six banners and a scintillating opening-night blowout of the hated Pittsburgh Steelers.
Now the real work begins -- at least for BillBelichick and his staff.
Monday’s expected arrival of Antonio Brown -- he was not in the building for the Sunday night slaughter by his new team over his old -- crowds an already loaded wide receiver roster here for the defending world champions.
Once a point of early August concern, the New England wide receiver roster ranks among the best in the game from 1-to-6, a fact that TomBrady has never been able to boast about.
Sunday night’s depth chart at the position was pretty darn impressive.
