There’s still plenty of work to be done, but Patriots WR Brandon LaFell looked more comfortable on Tuesday.
During 7-on-7 drills, the receiver made one of the best catches in camp. While being double covered, LaFell laid out to catch a deep ball. After practice he said he feels more comfortable every day.
“Every night is study night for me, something I’m not used to because in Carolina we ran the same offense for three years so I knew it,” LaFell said. “It’s a ton of work every night and the more and more I get reps, the more comfortable I’ll feel. I started feeling good in the OTAs, minicamp, then we took a long break, and now I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.”
LaFell had some drops in the first week of camp, but Tuesday was a positive sign for the receiver. He could end up making the position pretty crowded for the Pats, giving them some decisions to make. A few weeks ago, we had a news piece that listed Aaron Dobson and Julian Edelman as the only locks to make the roster at WR, with Danny Amendola a close lock.
