The New England Patriots wrapped of the first of their mini-camps yesterday as the rookies took to the field again during a double session. The rookies aren’t allowed to return to the Patriots before May 15th or after their college’s graduation, whichever comes later. So for the rooks, that means a lot of Patriots homework to learn until their back in 12 days.
