Sources: Pats drop grievance as Texans move on

The Houston Texans will no longer pursue New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio for their general manager position, the team announced Friday.

News that the Texans are no longer pursuing Nick Caserio for their general manager opening is significant for the Patriots, as Caserio returns to his position as Bill Belichick's right-hand man. Caserio's role is unique because he contributes to both the personnel and coaching side, with Belichick once saying he can't imagine there is another person in the NFL who fills such a "rare" role. Furthermore, the prospect of replacing Caserio at this time on the NFL calendar -- when most coaches are on vacation -- wouldn't have been ideal for New England.

Source: Pats' Michel sidelined after knee scope

Patriots running back Sony Michel had an arthroscopic procedure on his knee earlier in the offseason, which is why he wasn't at the team's mandatory minicamp last month, a source confirmed to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Athletic first reported the procedure.

While the Patriots aren't holding a final practice today, many players still arrived for workouts at the stadium, where the power has been out. On Monday, players enjoyed an unexpected audible from Bill Belichick, with paintball subbed in for practice.

With the Vikings agreeing to a four-year extension with TE Kyle Rudolph, it takes a potential trade option off the table for the Patriots. New England is thin at tight end in the current post-Gronk snapshot, with Benjamin Watson set to miss the first four games of the season due to NFL suspension. That leaves Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson and Ryan Izzo atop the depth chart.

The Patriots are not holding their final two practices of organized team activities — originally scheduled for Monday and Tuesday this week. Players are in Monday, however, and a team-building experience is on the schedule.

Patriots receive Super Bowl rings, largest ever

New England Patriots players, coaches, team executives and football staff received their Super Bowl LIII championship rings on Thursday night at a private party at owner Robert Kraft's residence.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Four things that caught my eye at the Patriots' final mandatory minicamp practice: 1) Pass breakups by nickelbacks Jonathan Jones (on a deep throw down the middle from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman) and Duke Dawson, which reflects the quality and depth of the defensive backfield. Rookie CB Joejuan Williams had a few passes completed on him Thursday, but overall, the CB position looks well stocked; 2) Too many dropped passes, with top TE Matt LaCosse and rookie RB Damien Harris among those contributing to the total; 3) Brian Hoyer fitting a sweet throw to Phillip Dorsett in the back right-hand corner of the end zone, as Hoyer continued to make plays. He had a TD to N'Keal Harry on Wednesday on a similar tight-window throw; 4) A third straight day in which first-round draft pick N'Keal Harry spent time working with QB Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. It was almost like a three-day crash course for Harry.
