Patriot QB Tom Brady has asked everyone to step up their game as training camp approaches.
WR Kenbrell Thompkins shined in minicamp. WR Josh Boyce looked bigger and better, until he appeared to suffer a lower-body injury in the warmup line on day two of minicamp.
WR Aaron Dobson was held out and there is a lot of question marks around TE Rob Gronkowski and his status for Week 1. So Brady is urging guys like Thompkins and Boyce to step up between now and the start of camp. With Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman likely fixtures in the offense, there is still going to be playing time to be had, especially if Gronkowski isn't ready.
